Game He had a sort of experience after being excluded from the Super Bowl halftime show in his hometown … LA rapper says he’s “hurt” Dr. Drew Didn’t hit him to perform.
The Super Bowl LVI was originally LA-themed – going down to SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA – with Rams ripping NFC. LA rappers draw, including most Los Angeles, halftime performers … Snoop DoggAnd Kendrick Lamar.
But, The Game – a LA native who has always represented the city – was not included in the lineup … What the 46-year-old rapper said when appearing on the “I’m Athlete” podcast was incorrect.
“F ****** The Rams were in the Super Bowl , bro!” The game said, “LA, LA, LA is all around the Super Bowl and I didn’t get the call. I’m sorry about that.”
“Why would Dray have called and said. I would have understood that ‘because I talk to Dray. I talk to Dray often and I know that if I was Dray and it was a game, he would be there. It’s just that. It’s LA and I’m LA. I’m on the streets. “
What made the game even more upsetting was the fact Eminem And 50 cents Got to perform … when they weren’t even born and raised LA rappers.
“Snoop is an icon. Dray is an icon. Em is an icon, but Em is not from LA. 50 is not from LA,” Game said.
“I’m not far from the fact that they were in the Super Bowl, but LA n **** wouldn’t be in the Detroit Super Bowl or the New York Super Bowl. That wouldn’t have happened.”
Despite being hurt by the game’s emotions, he realized why he didn’t get a call – he’s not a “safe performer.”
“You don’t know what the game will do when it gets there,” Game said, “they went with the safe cast.”
But, the game lets the past go by – say at the end of the day, it was a win for LA and a win for culture.
