Pass The Man A Tissue...

The Game showed a oft side during an interview with Music Choice. The Compton rapper said he was frustrated that other rappers wouldn't join him on his Sean Bell tribute song, Cop Killer and talked about a misfit in hip hop.

“I reached out to a lot of artists and I told ’em what I was gonna do for Sean Bell and a lot of them just…I got a gang of excuses. Nobody wanna stand up and be a man. We don’t have a problem putting out a mixtape dissing each other but the people that you say or claim to hate so much, which is, or the situation that render us helpless like police brutality, excessive force, people using the shield to really deal the wrong way with human beings, you know, like nobody wanna stand-up for that except me,” he said.

Game then starts to cry, wiping away his tears, and continued in a choked voice. “Sh*t is f*cked up, man it’s just, people just don’t understand man. And that’s why I don’t wanna be a part of hip-hop anymore. It just ain’t right, man. And hip-hop just didn’t used to be like this, you know. Like, it’s not why I do it. It’s not why I’m here.”

Here's the footage:

In other news, I got a sneak peak at Game's forthcoming, and possibly final album yesterday. L.A.X features Raekwon, Ne-Yo, Wayne, Ludacris, Nas and Busta and could be one of his strongest offerings yet. He displays a new flow on two tracks, drops some excellent lyrics, and, as always delivers a couple of controversial rhymes regarding Dre, Em, 50, while, in what could be construed as a diss to Jay, mentions Beyonce and the film American Gangster. He also talks about Malcolm X, not being taken seriously as a spitter, his father being an addict and does an excellent concept speaking as though he were Pac, Big and Eazy talking from beyond the grave. Controversial, clever and conceptual, Game's third album will certainly keep people talking about him.

L.A.X is released 26 August
