Such is the fate, in some form or another, of all those who unbalance the master's sense of self, poke holes in his vanity, or make him doubt his preeminence.
Although rapper 50 Cent claims he dismissed artist Game from G-Unit after Game refused to support them in a feud with Murder Inc., it is more likely that Game had threatened 50’s pride.
This is backed up by the fact that 50 Cent continually claimed to have written 6 of the songs on Game’s debut The Documentary which is considered a “classic” album by many and caused Game to steal much of the shine from 50, who had released The Massacre just a few months later.
Had Game given 50 Cent more credit, his career would no doubt look very different and would probably be one of the most powerful artists on Interscope right now.
