Despite a rumor to the contrary that spread around the Internet this morning, rapper The Game is alive, well and promoting his next album.
While a few sites had picked up on the gossip that the artist had been shot late Sunday and had since passed away, his manager told CNN that the rumor is indeed false, adding that “Game flew this morning to Sacramento for part of his promo run.”
Game added in a statement, "All these rumors that I’ve been shot are phony just like half the rappers in the game. I’m still here, promoting my R.E.D. Album, so when it drops, go get it or else you might end up dead like me, haha."
The rapper noted on Twitter that he would prefer a little creativity be used when determining the cause of death the next time the Internet proclaims him dead.
“Who ever started da rumor dat I was dead is funny as hell,” Game tweeted Monday. “If u gone spread rumors, b more creative. Say, I had a fight wit the Toy Story cast or sumn & it turned fatal ha ha."
