The Game Says He’s Not Bitter About Not Being Invited to Perform During Dr. Dre’s Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show

The Game went to Instagram to share that he wasn’t upset about not being included in the Super Bowl Halftime Show earlier this month.

No one speaks for The Game except himself. After his longtime manager Wack 100 hopped on Clubhouse to say that Game wasn’t invited to Dr. Dre’s epic Super Bowl LVI halftime show because he “told [JAY-Z] to suck his dick like 18 albums ago,” the rapper made an Instagram post to clear up the misunderstanding.

“I ain’t had no conversation with nobody regarding Jay-Z and the Super Bowl he put together. I don’t feel no way about no being included. It was a GREAT SHOW featuring iconic artists. It was a WIN for the culture,” Game wrote. He continued:

“I control my own narrative. Do not be fooled by the internet, blogs, podcasts or anyone speaking on my name that is not me. My life & new album are both amazing & I’m in a great space creatively & artistically. I’m in Miami to help Ye’ finish DONDA 2 & support my friend in one of the most pivotal times of his life/career. Leave me & my name out of any NEGATIVE conversations unless I have given you a REAL reason to include me !!! Hov’ continues to break down doors for the culture & I am in full support of anything & anyone who is on the help side of urban greatness.”

After this month’s Super Bowl Halftime Show headlined by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and Eminem, with guest spots from 50 Cent and Anderson .Paak, Game went to Instagram to express his grievances with being left out.

While it’s uncertain if Game and Ye’s “Eazy” collaboration will be on DONDA 2, the album is slated to release tomorrow.
