The Game claims he’s never paid for a verse
Over a week ago, The Game released his 10th studio album, “Drillmatic Heart Vs Mind.” This project contained a lengthy 31 songs, along with appearances from A$AP Rocky, Lil Wayne, Pusha T, Chlöe, Chris Brown, Kanye West, and more.
Game went on to lose a Nipsey Hussle feature on “World Tours,” due to Atlantic Records not receiving any paperwork. In the last week, Game also lost out on an NBA Youngboy feature, on the Drillmatic album.
Game’s manager, Wack 100, revealed on Clubhouse, that Youngboy’s initial feature price was $300,000, but gave it to Game for $150,000. Wack then explained how the $150,000 went over their marketing budget, which resulted in the Youngboy collaboration not happening. The song removed was “O.P.P.”
“The Game does all the rapping, I do all the business. … In YoungBoy’s defense, YoungBoy charge n***as $300,000 a verse,” Wack explained. “It’s what he charge. It’s what it is. I can’t front, he gave us a hell of a deal, but that situation would have cut into marketing overall. So, I had to make an executive decision whether I wanted to pay the tab he sent me, which was a respectable, great tab. It was love, I can’t front. But that tab would have cut into that, that, and that.”
In a recent Instagram post by XXL on Instagram, Game claimed that he’s never had to pay for a verse, in his career.
“I ain’t never paid for a verse in my life n***a,” said Game. “200k for a 16 never & a day blood!!!”
