The Game is alive and well

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."

    nothing against the guy personally, but if he was dead, neither the rap world nor the world at large would take it as a big loss – he's not very influential in rap and certainly not a good role model for the world – judging from his twithead post, the guy can't even spell

    I just heard the Game was over. It ended in a draw. They're going to do it over.

    Relax. Most women aren't that obvious when breastfeeding.

    But baby's gotta eat, too.

    After reading this statement where he's telling everyone the name of his album AND telling them to get it, it's clear that this death rumor was a publicity stunt pulled by him and his people to promote his lame wannabe gangsta music. The next time he tries to pull a stunt like this, someone should tell him to be smart about it. Do not to promote your album while clearing up the death rumors, you made it a little bit too obvious that it was a publicity stunt.

    If you're a fan of this clown, you're stupid and you deserve to be shot for supporting this nonsense.

      Why do you think that you are the one that gets to decide what music is good? Do you know what the word "opinion" means? Not everyone has the same thoughts, ideas, or opinions that you do. Just the fact that you think you know best, makes you the stupid one, not Game fans. I think you should be the one that should be shot. Your comment probably sounded really cool in your head, made you feel superior, but just the fact that you think YOU decide what music is good makes me sick. You are an idiot. What do you listen to, country music? Country music sucks, but that's just my opinion, so I wouldn't hold it against you or call you stupid if you really do like that cowboy crap.

  16. let's be real

    I am predicting a whole lot of "Who cares?" and "Who?" comments. Let's not forget the "Rap Sucks" comments, too.

    I do know this guy, though, and I'm not a big fan. He's a little too narcisisstic for my tastes. He has a lot of lyrical flow, but that's about it. "Hate It Or Love It" was his best work, and that's about it... just my opinion.

      Originally, I wasn't going to comment because mine would have been a Who? comment...but since you posted this...

      My first thougth when I saw the headline was "GAH! I just lost 'THE GAME'! I had been doing so well for a few weeks now. And now, if you hadn't already thought that-you all just lost 'THE GAME' too.
