The Game Says Michael Jackson Wanted Him & 50 Cent To Work Together For His Album

The Game recently stopped by the HipHopDX offices in Hollywood to speak about the journey from his debut album The Documentary to his most recent release Born 2 Rap.

During the conversation, Game was asked about a moment in his career involving Michael Jackson and his former collaborator turned enemy, 50 Cent.

After Michael Jackson passed away, Game penned a tribute song to the late King of Pop called “Better on the Other Side” featuring Chris Brown. The two honored MJ’s legacy and talked about his importance to the world of music. On the song Game raps:

“First thing I did when I heard, was call Puff/ ‘Cause him and Mike tried to stop the beef between us

Who was us? Me and 50, that beef is dead/ Him and Mike Jackson gonna take us to the ledge.”

The West Coast rapper detailed the story of Michael Jackson calling his phone to try and end the beef between him and 50 Cent. Game described the situation as “weird as fuck.” He continued by saying “this ain’t how I wanna meet Michael Jackson.”

Before the two artists could speak however, Game was asked to hold on the line for approximately ten minutes. “N**a you called me!” he said jokingly. “But it’s Michael Jackson so I’m holding the fuck on.”

Once they were finally connected on the line, Game told DX that the Michael Jackson voice we’ve become used to hearing so much about was not present on their phone call.

“You know that Michael Jackson voice that you hear all the time? That n*a wasn’t talking like that.” He said while laughing. “It was low-key deep. You could still tell it was Michael Jackson.”

Game describes how Michael Jackson told him how much he enjoyed The Documentary, in particular, his 50 Cent assisted track “How We Do.”
