The Game’s Statement on “My Life”

Interscope just sent out this statement from Jayceon explaining the following line from the extended version of My Life that leaked earlier.

You see them 24’s spinning, I earned ‘em/and all the pictures of me and Em, I burned ‘em/ so there ain’t no proof that I ever walked through 8 Mile/and since there’s no Proof, I’ll never walk through 8 Mile

Game says:

When I originally wrote the song “My Life” I was trying to think back on events that affected my life and how they changed me. When I first got signed to Aftermath and G-Unit I was exposed to so many different people from Dre to Em to 50 to Proof. I always identified with Proof. We were always cool and he would reach out to me when ever I was going through something I remember when Proof died vividly and now every time I think about going to Detroit I get depressed. That is what I was trying to say in that verse and the more I looked at I realized that people would take it the wrong way…the way they are taking it now that it leaked. So I decided to change it so that this bullshit wouldn’t happen and now it’s happened anyway. For the record, this is not the version on my album, this is not the version that radio will get and this is not the version that I just shot the video to. Furthermore, I apologize to anyone who took this the wrong way as that was never my intention.

UPDATE: Ok, by my count this is the 4th version of this song to leak since last night. It’s the full 5:25 version, Dirty/No DJ, and no Em reference:

    He should release a similar statement for the 1,678,354 shots he’s thrown Jay’s way

  2. 456 Says:

    he shoulda said nothing and left it on the album

  3. Rey Says:

    Hmm… I took that line in the sense of, “I’m not going back if Proof’s not there cuz it’ll be too painful to be there and not have my friend able to see me.”

    I didn’t even know there was a potential controversy. Oh well. Still coppin’ LAX.

    Also, Props to ‘Ye for doing that MTV thing. Our troops deserve better than what they’re getting, so ‘Ye coming out to show love is merely the beginning.

    Damn game I thought u were better than that

    “if I said it I meant it bite my tongue for no one call me evil or unbelievable” c B.I.G.

    This kid officially played himself.

  6. 456 Says:

    he should make a song or statement explaining his intense love for butterflies

  7. spirit equality Says:

    None of that statement explains the “All of the pictures of me and Em, I burned em” line. I hope Eminem burns a hole in him because Eminem is one million times better as an emcee than Game’s name-dropping ass. It would be even funnier if Eminem signed Ras Kass to Shady and let Ras Kass burn a hole in Game for him. LOL.

  8. spirit equality Says:

    Am I overreacting or am I imagining a dis to Eminem in the lines above? I know the burning pictures and ‘there’s no proof” lines are linked, but I still think that was some kind of sneak dis on Em and a reference to him burning some kind of bridge with Eminem (who is obviously still loyal to 50). Anyone agree?

  9. Paperstacker Says:

    Doesn’t really seem like an outright diss, sublime or not. I doubt Game was ever close to Em except by association og G-unit/Proof.

    Besides it’s corny when niggas put out subliminals they know will be picked up and then go back on their word like “nah, I ain’t mean it like that”+some phony excuse… Game or not the game is rampant with that bullshit

  10. MES Says:

    game is a overrated rapper whos specialty is name dropin he learn the his former master Curtis

    First album:Jay&Murda Inc
    Second Ablum:G-Unit
    Third Upcoming joint:Eminem

    that only thing hot about this nigga is his 100 mc remix s and the beats on his album

  11. MES Says:

    BTW this Eskay update that pic negro has a red star on his mug matter fact never mind he might paint the LA Coliseum next

  12. PreZZure Says:

    I’ma Game fan…but this move sucks…Leave the damn line in…Nigga spoke his mind and now he renigs…Worst part he put a weak Jesse Jack line/sermon reference…I’ll play the original and pretend I ain’t here this…Never bite ya tongue if ya wont bite a bullet
