It's a tension that has lasted for nearly two decades, and it doesn't look like 50 Cent and The Game are mending their beef anytime soon. However, there was a time in Hip Hop history when the two hitmakers were as thick as thieves-or so it seemed. 50 Cent signed Game to his G-Unit collective, but the partnership didn't materialize as expected. They made music that has gone on to receive "classic" status from fans, and while Fif often gets a kick out of verbally sparring with his foes, Lil Scrappy claims he was distraught over his fallout with Game.
Scrap caught up with the Live on Lake Street podcast, where he revisited highlights of his career. During the conversation, Scrappy also shared some inside information on the beef between 50 Cent and The Game. There was a time when Lil Scrappy was signed to Fif's G-Unit South, but he wasn't able to collaborate with the "Greenlight Gang" mogul. "I wanted 50 on there so bad, man," he said of his Young Buck-assisted track, "Money in the Bank."
Lil Scrappy Wanted To Collab With Fif
"I told 50, 'You gotta do it, because a down south beat with an up north dude, if you get on there, it's gonna be crazy.'" Scrappy believes the collaboration never came to fruition because of issues with Game. "I don't know. At the time, I think he was still hurting from that Game situation. He really f*cked with that sh*t. I can tell he was f*cked up about that sh*t."
Lil Scrappy clarified that he "had just came in" to Fif's circle around that time, so he was just an observer of the unraveling. When asked if he witnessed anything, the Love & Hip Hop star said he only heard both sides. Game and 50 Cent are outspoken artists who don't back down from a confrontation. It was just in September when The Game was performing in Houston and sent verbal shots Fif's way.

While on stage, Game said, "I still don't f*ck with 50 cent. He's a b*tch. Ain't no cut with that n*gga." He added, "He's a sucka. I'mma say it in Houston, I'll say it in New York, I'll say it anywhere. He's a straight b*tch. And I like the TV shows, n*gga. Put that on the internet."
