Dr. Dre hopes to end feud between Game and 50 Cent

23 Dec

Over five years ago, Snoop Dogg openly criticized Dr. Dre for not doing enough to help the West Coast hip hop scene. He noted that the roster of Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment featured such acts as Eminem and Rakim. At the time, Dr. Dre was the only artist representing the West Coast on the label.

That same year, Dr. Dre would sign Compton rapper, The Game. Only months after The Game was signed to the label, Eminem would introduce Dr. Dre to 50 Cent. The fact that 50 Cent had been shot nine times was captivating to Dr. Dre. Then, his lyrical ability led to him shifting his focus away from The Game and onto 50 Cent.

Just appreciative of being in Dr. Dre’s camp, The Game did not mind being pushed to the side in favor of 50 Cent. The popularity of 50 Cent led to his G-Unit camp also becoming very popular. Despite the fact that The Game and 50 Cent barely knew each other, Dr. Dre decided to have the two rappers begin working with each other.

In 2004, The Game was shifted to the G-Unit group and was signed to G-Unit Records. At the time, 50 Cent was working on his second album. He had hoped to release his next album late in 2004, but his work with The Game led to his album being pushed back. Most of the songs that 50 Cent had saved for himself ended up being given to The Game for his album.

Soon, rumors of friction between The Game and 50 Cent occurred. Then, out of nowhere, 50 Cent announced that The Game had been kicked out of the G-Unit group. Before long, The Game was off of G-Unit Records and he was frequently out dissing 50 Cent and the entire crew. This would spark a long-running feud.

Caught in the middle of all of this was Dr. Dre. After all, it was his idea to have the two rappers working together. In the end, he was forced to choose sides. At the time, 50 Cent was the biggest act on Interscope Records. Siding with the profits, Dr. Dre chose to stay by the side of 50 Cent, while The Game was banished to Geffen Records.

For three years, The Game worked over at Geffen, becoming their biggest hip hop act. Before the release of both of his albums on the label, he would announce that Dr. Dre was producing for the album. But, when the albums were released, work from Dr. Dre was nowhere to be found. On each of his Geffen releases, The Game spoke often of reuniting with Dr. Dre, which did not come to be.

Early in 2009, The Game revealed that he was working on a new album called The R.E.D. Album. He said that this release would begin the next era of his career. No longer would he be creating false alarms, announcing work with Dr. Dre. At this point, he was over the entire feud. Since this was a new start to his career, The Game ended up changing his name to simply Game.

Three months ago, the unthinkable happened. There was a picture leaked to the internet that showed Game in the studio with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. This signaled the end of their estrangement as it was revealed that Game had been working with Dre on Detox. Also working with Dr. Dre on the album was 50 Cent.

When Game and Dr. Dre reunited, 50 Cent was asked how he felt about the reunion. Years ago, 50 said that if Dr. Dre ever worked with Game again, he would diss Dr. Dre. By 2009, his tone had changed. He said that despite his personal feelings towards Dr. Dre, he would never diss him because he never wants to put Eminem in such a tough situation.

50 Cent went on to say that Detox was Dr. Dre’s album and Dr. Dre was free to work with the artists of his choice on the album. It was then that 50 Cent confirmed that he was going to be on the album and it did not matter who else was on it. Because of the fact that Dr. Dre has always wanted the two rappers to end their feud, some hoped for a collaboration between Game and 50 Cent on this album.

Over the course of the year, 50 Cent did reach out to such enemies as Cam’ron and Jadakiss to end some feuds. Many thought that the recent change of heart from 50 Cent would lead to his reaching out to Game. Those who had those thoughts thought wrong. 50 Cent would soon leak his track, “So Disrespectful,” which dissed Game and Young Buck.

Later, 50 Cent said that he and Game will never appear on the same track again. 50 said that if there is a song on Detox that he likes and Game’s vocals are on it, he will convince Dr. Dre to take Game’s vocals off and he will record a verse much better than Game’s. In the time since Game has reunited with Dr. Dre, 50 Cent has not let off of his frequent disses towards Game.

There was a time when Game said that he would never end his feud with 50 Cent. Recently, Game has been taunting 50 Cent due to his low album sales. He said that he would be willing to end his feud and work with 50 Cent again. The only catch is 50 Cent having to admit that he lost the feud to Game and then apologizing. By now, it is widely-known that 50 Cent will not do any of this.

Despite the things that 50 Cent says about Dr. Dre, it is obvious that he has a lot of respect for Dre. Every time that Game speaks, it is clear that he has a lot of love and respect for Dr. Dre. Dre wants more than anything for 50 Cent and Game to end their feud. He has a lot of influence over both rappers and he may possess the ability to force both of these rappers to find a truce with each other.

Coming next year will be Dr. Dre’s Detox, in which both Game and 50 Cent will be making guest appearances. Also coming next year will be Game’s The R.E.D. Album, which will be handled by Dr. Dre. Given the fact that Dr. Dre works closely with 50 Cent and his G-Unit crew, it is possible that he forces them to work together the same way that Snoop Dogg forced Dr. Dre to work with Game again.
