The Game Stands Up for Justin Bieber’s Emotional Instagram Post

The Game rapper

In social media, vulnerability can often be misconstrued or even criticized. However, when Justin Bieber recently shared a heartfelt and tearful post on his Instagram account, it sparked a wave of support and understanding from fans and celebrities alike. Among those rallying behind the pop sensation is fellow musician The Game, who has come forward to defend Bieber’s emotional display, urging people to embrace and support him in his moments of vulnerability.

In his Instagram post, Bieber shared a series of photos and videos along with a caption expressing his struggles with fame and the toll it has taken on his mental health. His message’s raw honesty and emotion resonated deeply with many of his followers, prompting an outpouring of empathy and encouragement.

The Game, known for his candid demeanor and outspoken nature, took to social media to voice his support for Bieber. In a series of tweets and Instagram stories, he commended the singer for his bravery in opening up about his inner struggles and urged others to show compassion and understanding.

“Justin Bieber is a human being, just like the rest of us,” The Game tweeted. “He has feelings, he experiences pain, and he deserves our support. Let’s not judge him for being vulnerable – let’s applaud him for his courage.”

The rapper’s words echo a growing sentiment in society that emphasizes the importance of destigmatizing mental health issues and encouraging open dialogue. In a world where celebrities are often placed on pedestals and expected to maintain a facade of perfection, Bieber’s willingness to show his vulnerability serves as a potent reminder that no one is immune to the challenges of mental health.

Moreover, The Game’s defense of Bieber highlights the importance of empathy and compassion in our interactions with others, especially in the age of social media where negativity and criticism can easily overshadow genuine expressions of emotion.

As Bieber continues navigating the complexities of fame and personal struggles, fans and the public need to rally behind him with love and support. By embracing his vulnerability, Bieber is not only advocating for his well-being but also paving the way for others to feel comfortable seeking help and opening up about their mental health challenges.

In a world that often glorifies strength and resilience while shunning vulnerability, Bieber’s willingness to show his emotional side is a courageous act that deserves commendation. And with allies like The Game standing in his corner, Bieber can find solace in knowing he is not alone in his journey towards healing and self-discovery.

In conclusion, The Game’s defense of Justin Bieber’s teary social media post serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of empathy, compassion, and understanding, particularly regarding mental health struggles. Rather than criticizing or judging, let us rally behind those who dare to be vulnerable and support them toward healing and self-acceptance.

Today In Hip Hop History: The Game Dropped His Debut LP ‘The Documentary’ 19 Years Ago

the source sneakers rap albums the game the documentary

On this date in 2005, Compton emcee The Game released his debut album, The Documentary, on Aftermath/G-Unit/Interscope records.

The Game was the first G-Unit representative from outside of NYC to be a part of the then-dominating roster consisting of Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, and its general, 50 Cent. The album was initially called “Nigga Witta Attitude Vol.1,” but Eazy-E’s wife, Tomica Woods-Wright, legally blocked that N.W.A. title reference from being used.

The album received commercial and critical success, reaching gold status in its first week and 2X platinum within the first two months. The singles that received the most acclaim were 50 Cent-assisted, which many felt was the primary reason for the project’s success. “Hate It Or Love It,” “Westside Story,” and This Is How We Do” allowed The Game to see the same degree of fame as his Queens boss but left many critics to wonder if this feat was capable with no guest appearances. The album’s production was a Hip-Hop producers’ Hall of Fame, with the likes of Kanye West. Scott Storch, Just Blaze, Timbaland, and Dr. Dre are behind the boards. These fundamental elements make The Documentary The Game’s most notable and successful album to date.

Salute to Dre, 50, Em, The Game, the entire G-Unit, and everyone involved in one of the most pivotal Hip-Hop projects of the new millennium.

Big Hit & The Game Surprise-Release Collab Mixtape “Paisley Dreams” Prod. by Hit-Boy (Mixtape Review)

This is a brand new collaborative mixtape between Big Hit & The Game. One of whom hails from Los Angeles coming fresh off his debut album The Truth is in My Eyes a few weeks ago after being in the making for a decade & the other is an established Compton veteran at this point mentored by both Dr. Dre & 50 Cent who put out Drillmatic: Heart vs. Mind a year & a half ago, which was the most I’ve enjoyed a project from him in quite some time. Both projects where executive produced by Big Hit’s son Hit-Boy, who eventually produced Paisley Dreams to start 2024.

“Backfade” is an ominous boom bap opener talking about having each other’s backs using the old school west coast terminology whereas the title track takes a more soulful approach admitting to being fathers first & real ones secondly. “P Fiction” featuring Hit-Boy finds the trio shifting into trap territory declaring themselves to be menaces leading into “Bang” talking about banging for the cause over a Mobb instrumental.

Meanwhile, “Cutthroat” starts off the 2nd leg ballin’ on top of a g-funk beat & TeeFLii’s hook being inspired by the late Zapp frontman Roger Troutman just before “The Game Won’t Stop” returns to a more soulful sound talking about shaking the cops. “Crisis” featuring Half-a-Mil has a gospel flip to it discussing the struggle while “Happy Ru Year” is a hyphy-tinged New Year’s anthem. “Body for Body” rounds out the tape by smelling homicide over a trap instrumental.

Wild to think that Game pulled up on Big Hit & Hit-Boy to only do 1 track with each other only to end up with a 9-song tape to release out of nowhere on New Year’s Day. If you’re a west coast head, you gotta check out Paisley Dreams at some point. Hit-Boy’s production mixes boom bap, trap, g-funk, Mobb music & hyphy altogether as his dad teams up with the Compton vet on the mic to rep their sets.

Score: 8/10

It’s not often that The Game celebrates 50 Cent so let’s enjoy this while it lasts. Hitting Instagram on the 18th anniversary of his debut album, The Documentary, Game thanked his former collaborator along with Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, and Dr. Dre.

“18 years ago today…. A hip hop classic was born,” The Game wrote. “All I wanted to do was tell my story & make sure my son would never live the life I did. @snoopdogg passed me the torch, @bustarhymes kept me focused… @drdre laid the foundation & @50cent helped put the puzzle together.”

The Game was the first G-Unit representative from outside of NYC to be a part of the then-dominating roster consisting of Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, and its general, 50 Cent.

The Game Reveals That He Never Got A Beat From Dr. Dre

The Game arriving at the party photo by Chase Yi

Despite being discovered by Dr. Dre and signed to Aftermath, The Game recently revealed in a new interview with Uproxx’s Fresh Pair, that he never received a beat from Dr. Dre.

While Dre is credited as an executive producer on The Game’s 2005 debut album The Documentary, Game says that Dre did not make any beats for the album. He said that instead, Dre “oversaw” the creation of the album.

“He definitely oversaw the hell out of it, I was there,” Fresh Pair co-host Just Blaze said. Game added that “You want Dre to oversee anything because he’s a mastermind when it comes to that, but as far as like doing a beat for The Documentary, like…no. And I’ve never had a Dre beat in my career.”

Game added that as the executive producer, Dre enlisted producers from his circle like Just Blaze, Timbaland, Scott Storch, and Swizz Beatz. “I can’t give Dre credit for the Just Blaze, but it’s a Dr. Dre executive-produced album,” he said. “People just don’t understand the underlinings and how the business works.” 

The Game went on to say that along with never getting a beat from Dre, the legendary producer never made an appearance in one of his music videos like he did for 50 Cent or Eminem.

“Ive never had a song with Dre and Dre been in my video. Snoop has a ton, Em has a ton, I don’t have none,” Game said.

This might have been what The Game was talking about in his Drink Champs interview where he made headlines after saying Kanye did more for his career than Dr. Dre has. “It’s crazy that Ye did more for me in the last two weeks, than Dre did for me my whole career,” Game said.

The Game Forced To Remove NBA Youngboy From “Drillmatic” Track Over $150K Feature Fee

The Game arriving at the party photo by Chase Yi

The Game’s recent Drillmatic: Heart vs. Mind album dropped last week and features 30 songs with over 20 featured artists. Among those was NBA Youngboy on the song OPP. However, The Game was forced to remove the song from the album over the Baton Rouge rapper’s hefty $150k feature fee.

The Game’s manager, Wack 100, spoke on the matter in a recent Clubhouse discussion with Ma$e, saying that the rate was actually cut from $300k.

“In YoungBoy’s defense, YoungBoy charge niggas $300,000 a verse. That’s what he charge, that’s what it is. I can’t front he gave us a hell of a deal, but that situation would’ve cut into marketing overall.”

“So I had to make an executive decision on 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’ve cut into that, that and that.”

Wack added, “He gave me a deal for half that. He already sent me a bill for 150, which was love, that’s nephew. So 300 is his rate, but you know, because what happens is with YoungBoy, he was going to do that for the video and everything. So once you go to video and YouTube, he one of the highest streaming individuals on YouTube.”

“You going to get your money back in the long run, plus now your artist is tapping into that fanbase that he may not have. So nothing against YoungBoy, YoungBoy didn’t disrespect us or violate us, him and bro cut his rate in half for us.”

However, Wack then revealed that the album was only supposed to be 20 songs, and they would have been able to pay for the feature, but Game went on to add 10 more songs, 6 of which contained features that needed to be cleared which further dug into the budget.
