The Game has had number of rivals, such as Suge Knight, Memphis Bleek and Jay-Z of Roc-A-Fella Records, Yukmouth, Joe Budden, and even labelmate 50 Cent.
The Game rapper – Joe Budden
50 Cent criticized Budden’s album for “lacking street credibility.” Joe Budden took offense and released various insults directed at G-Unit. On a mixtape in early 2004, Budden attacked a G-Unit track that featured The Game. During 2004, The Game made several records dissing Joe Budden, notoriously the track “Buddens.” The Game threatened Joe Budden and supposedly flew to New York to confront him. Joe Budden mocked The Game’s appearance on the dating game show “Change of Heart” in which he sported a tongue ring. On his web site, The Game defended his embarrassing appearance on the show, saying that he was young and needed the money. Later, at a party in New York, the rappers mutually announced their intention to stop making hostile records about each other, but The Game has subsequently suggested in songs and videos that he won the feud. 
The Game rapper – Yukmouth
Yukmouth had heard rumors of The Game making disrespectful comments after being spotted at a party. The rapper released a song aimed at The Game. Soon a video surfaced on the Internet in which Yukmouth appeared in a studio with rapper Domination, who was making a disrespectful song aimed at G-Unit. At the end of the clip, Yukmouth claims that The Game has a tongue ring. The Game fired back with a record dissing the rap veteran. Yukmouth responded with two tracks and a music video featuring an impersonator of The Game. Both songs referred to the Change of Heart and tongue ring incidents. Yukmouth released a mixtape called “All Out War,” attacking The Game on several tracks. The two tried to bury the hatchet and even recorded a song together. The track, which each artist recorded seperatly did little to this effect.
The Game rapper – Death Row
Dr. Dre’s old nemesis Suge Knight has an ongoing feud with The Game. Yukmouth claimed that The Game had been slapped by Suge Knight. The Game responded on his website, saying that if Suge Knight had ever touched him, he would put him “6 feet under.” After the 2005 BET Awards, associates of Death Row had their invitations to a party hosted by Ciara rescinded. Supposedly, a member of Death Row had tried to steal The Game’s chain. The Game stated on his Black Wall Street web site that he dislikes Suge Knight because of “the lives he has endangered.” In Miami for the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards, Suge Knight was shot and wounded at Kanye West’s party by an unknown gunman. The Game vigorously denied involvement in the shooting, but the incident renewed efforts to pacify hip hop feuds and The Game has consequently been discouraged from attending certain events in hopes of averting retaliation.
Previously The Game, Steve Harvey, and various representatives of California’s rap cliques formed a West Coast “peace treaty” supposedly ending the rivalry between Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Suge Knight that began when they left Death Row Records. Although none of these individuals attended the discussions, The Game represented Dre and Harvey represented Knight. This feud has persisted in spite of the West Coast Peace Treaty.
The Game rapper – Roc-A-Fella and Jay-Z
This feud grew out of an earlier rivalry with Memphis Bleek over the name of his label. The label was similar to the one to which The Game had been previously signed. On the single “Westside Story,” The Game raps that he “don’t do button-up shirts or drive Maybachs,” many believed this diss was aimed at Jay-Z. On the radio, Jay-Z retaliated by referring “game” while rapping. The Game apparently felt that Jay-Z was attacking him and made several remarks directed at Roc-A-Fella Records. In an interview with Ed Lover and Moni Love, The Game said the Maybach line on “Westside Story” was actually a diss at Ja Rule, he also said he has a lot of respect for Jay-Z and would never diss legends. Jay-Z later insisted that “game” references were just about the rap game itself, not the rapper. The Game still addresses Memphis Bleek and the Young Gunz on songs but avoids dissing Kanye West and Jay-Z. There were rumors that Jay-Z was planning on “declaring war” on The Game and others at a concert in October 2005, but Jay-Z instead used the opportunity to make peace with rivals.
The Game rapper – 50 Cent and G-Unit
The Game currently has an escalating feud with 50 Cent. Fans mostly believed that the rapper was bonding with 50 Cent at the time of The Documentary’s release. The Game’s major debut album was surrounded by controversy. Right after its release, 50 Cent felt that the rapper was disloyal for saying he wanted to work with artists with whom G-Unit were feuding, and he formally dismissed the rapper.
50 Cent also claimed that he was not getting his proper credit for the debut of the album. During that dispute, a member of The Game’s entourage was shot and wounded after confrontation at Hot 97. After the situation between them escalated, 50 Cent and The Game decided to hold a press conference to announce their reconciliation . Many fans felt that the supposed feud, and particularly the incident at the radio station was a publicity stunt designed to boost the sales of the two albums the pair had just released . Nevertheless, even after the situation had apparently deflated, 50 Cent and G-Unit continued to feud with The Game, denouncing his street credibilty in the media and claiming that without their support, he will not score a hit from his second album. 50 Cent also sued The Game’s manager Jimmy Henchmen over unauthorized filming for a documentary about Kelvin Martin. The Game during a performance at the Summer Jam launched “G-Unot”.
After the performance at Summer Jam, The Game responded with “300 Bars and Runnin’”, a hard hitting diss going at G-Unit as well as members of Roc-A-Fella Records and others. 50 Cent had mixed feelings about the situations and placed blame on Dr. Dre for his slow response to end the feud. Nevertheless responded through his “Piggybank” video, which features The Game dressed as a Mr. Potato Head and parodies many other nemesises. This was the first of many feuds where two rappers from the same label were involved against each other. It’s not too clear if the feud is dissolved, but on BET 106 & Park, The Game confirmed that he was done beefing with 50 Cent. 50 Cent has not commented on resolving the feud .
The Game rapper – The Radio One Incident
While promoting his debut album, The Game was in Washington, D.C., with his manager, Jimmy Henchmen. They were being interviewed on WKYS-FM by DJ Zxulu and by the Hip Hop Zone’s Kwasi Jones. A comment made by Zxulu about the earpiece Henchmen was wearing started a confrontation with 20 members of The Game’s entourage. Zxulu and Jones were injured and hospitalized. The incident at the radio station caused Radio One to ban The Game’s music from its stations in major markets. The ban was lifted after The Game and his Black Wall Street group issued an apology to the radio station. The remix of the single “Hate It or Love It” featured The Game rapping, “I’m rap’s MVP/Don’t make me remind ya’ll what happened in D.C.” Jones apparently sued The Game for $280 million over the song and the incident itself, but the suit was thrown out and never came to trial. Prince George’s County authorities filed assault and battery charges against The Game.
The Game rapper – Other Controversies
The Game also attacked Compton rapper Guerilla Black for exploiting his rise to fuel his and other West Coast acts. Both rappers are represented by Henchmen’s Czar Management agency.
The Game stated on “Don’t Need Your Love” his disliking to The Source, and he also recorded a scathing freestyle rap with Malice, a white rapper from the northern Bay Area, responding to the long-standing feud between Benzino and Eminem and taking Eminem’s side. Benzino has replied on the song “Look Into My Eyes” his reply to Eminem’s “Like Toy Soldiers”. The Source believes that Dr. Dre and 50 Cent encourage the rapper to feud with the magazine.
On an appearance for the MTV show Punk’d, The Game went into the studio to make his new album, but the construction workers moved into the driveway and began repaving the driveway outside the studio where The Game was recording tracks for a new album. The Game didn’t know that the parking lot was going to be closed for couple of days, until he came out from the studio. The Game tossed a bench, a chair, and a broom onto the wet concrete in order to cross over the concrete. They were asked to remove the benches and chair, but one man tried to escape with a Cadillac until his car was stuck inside the concrete. The Game talked to the construction guys until Ashton Kutcher pulled the plug off from this incident.
The Game rapper – While On Tour
The Game and Snoop Dogg joined the promoted tour “How The West Was One.” They made a stop in Seattle and performed at the Auburn White River Amphitheatre. A supposed fan named Richard Monroe came onstage and approached Snoop Dogg, setting off a brawl between 12 members of Snoop Dogg and The Game’s bodyguards. The incident was captured on a home video that appears to show Monroe leaning his arm on Snoop Dogg’s shoulder during a performance of the song “Gin and Juice.” The bodyguards respond by wrestling Monroe to the floor and repeatedly punching and kicking the fan. Some members of the audience claim that Snoop Dogg invited fans onstage to perform with him, and there are other reports that The Game punched or kicked Monroe during the incident. Representatives of the venue have defended the performers’ bodyguards, stating that the safety of the performers is always a high priority and that fans are not permitted on stage.
In North Carolina, The Game was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. At one point, police said, his companions were sprayed with pepper spray when they surrounded officers in a threatening manner. The Game apparently behaved disruptively and used foul language at the Four Seasons Town Centre in Greensboro. Mall security officers said the rapper was wearing a full-face Halloween mask and cursing loudly, and refused to leave when asked. When police arrived, the Game continued to act up and was arrested, a police statement said. The Game said officers overreacted.
