The Game Says He’s Not A Billionaire Because He Doesn’t Want To Be
The Game is known for saying things as he feel without filtering it. In a new interview currently making rounds online, the Los Angeles rapper said he’s not a billionaire because he doesn’t want to be.
“I’m not a billionaire now because I just don’t wanna be. But if I woke up tomorrow and I felt like going to be a billionaire, I would just go put the work in and I would be a billionaire,” he said.
“It’s all about mindset. And if you’ve got it in you and you got enough heart to go after it like it’s yours. It’s nothing on nothing in the world that I or myself or anybody watching this can’t,” Game added.
A rising artist in the 2000s, the Game was considered to be a driving force in bringing back the West Coast hip hop scene into the mainstream and competing with many of his East Coast counterparts.
The Game was placed into G-Unit by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. As a result of his disputes with 50 Cent, Game left Aftermath and signed with Geffen, another label under Universal’s Interscope Geffen A&M unit, to terminate his contractual obligations with G-Unit in the summer of 2006.
The Game’s second major label album Doctor’s Advocate was released on November 14, 2006, and it became his second album to debut at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.
Doctor’s Advocate did not feature any production from Dr. Dre. Pitchfork Media placed The Documentary at number 35 on their list of Top 50 Albums of 2005. The Game was nominated with a total of two nominations, including Grammy Award for Best Rap Song and Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for the smash single “Hate It or Love It”. The New York Times named Doctor’s Advocate best hip-hop album of 2006.
