As the searing responses pour in after the recent police killing of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, not to mention the current tinderbox moment occurring after the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott by authorities in Charlotte, NC, Game is now rethinking his ongoing rap feud with Meek Mill.
In a video posted by TMZ, the "92 Bars" rapper admitted to having mixed feelings his current war of words with Meek in light of the recent tragic headlines impacting society. According to the rapper, he is "torn."
"I find it a little difficult to be actually beefing with another African American artist," Game said. "On one accord, it's like, I should be on this Black Lives Matter push, and this cops killing African Americans thing. And then on the other side, I got this beef with Meek going. So it's kind of like I'm torn. It makes me look bipolar."
Last week, Game ignited the feud with the release of "92 Bars" and the claim that Meek "snitched" on him. Offended by the claim, Meek responded with "Ooouuu" featuring Dreamchasers affiliates Omelly and Tak, as well as fellow Philadelphia native Beanie Sigel. On Tuesday (September 20), the Compton rapper issued his rebuttal via the six-minute track "Pest Control."
Game's comments echo what Nipsey Hussle expressed over the weekend, calling for an end to the senseless beef in light of the current issues plaguing society.

In his talk to TMZ, Game reflected on the rash of recent police shootings of unarmed black men, calling for a solution. "At this point, you can obviously see that we're being targeted," he shared.
I JUST SEEN A TERRORIST SURVIVE A SHOOTOUT WITH THE POLICE AFTER BLOWING SOME SHIT UP AND LATER ON THAT DAY A BLACK MAN SHOT DOWN FOR NO REASON AT ALL! "I NEVER BELIEVED IN AMERICA" THE LAND WHERE THEY WILL TAKE YA HOUSE AND PUT YOUR KIDS OUT ON THE STREETS FOR SOME OWED TAX MONEY..... WHERE THEY GIVING OUT 30 YEARS SENTENCES FOR NON VIOLENT CRIMES TO MOSTLY BLACK OFFENDERS " I DONT THINK I WILL EVER VOTE,THAT STUFF NEVER FELT LIKE IT WAS FOR ME OR MY PEOPLE FROM WHERE THEY GIVE POOR PEOPLE MILLION DOLLAR BAILS AND SAY INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!!! FROM WHERE THEY SAY FREEDOM OF SPEECH BUT WILL GIVE YOU A 100 YEARS ABOUT A PHONE CONVERSATION WHERE THE WORLD EQUAL DOSENT EXSIST! THEY JUST TOOK MY FRIEND FREEDOM FOR SMOKING WEED ON PROBATION....... AND THIS COP THAT KILLED THIS MAN/FATHER GOING HOME TO BED TONIGHT?????
Game, who recently led a peaceful rally with Snoop Dogg and fellow West Coast rappers to meet with the LAPD in July, and Meek, who vowed to refrain from promoting gun violence in his music after DC4, clearly share a common bond that we hope will soon overshadow the senseless friction currently taking place. There's a bigger mission at hand and the world needs influential figures like them and many other to bind together for a greater (and much bigger) cause.
