A song on Game‘s recently released Purp & Patron mixtape may land the left coast rapper in court.
In a recent interview with Hiphopdx.com, Chuck Taylor revealed that their may be a possible lawsuit filed by producer RZA over his use of the song, “Heartbreak” which was featured on the two-disc mixtape offering released last weak.
“I think RZA [is] tryin’ to sue about [‘Heartbreaker’] or somethin’,” Game tells the site. “That’s f^ckin’ crazy. Like, I don’t even know how RZA sues The Game.”
Apparently, RZA concocted the beat for Game’s awaited R.E.D album, but could not get the sample for the song cleared and therefore asked Game not to use the track. Game instead released the song on his latest mixtape effort, to the chagrin of the Wu-Tang head.
Game says there must have been some miscommunication,
“[Rza] came to the studio and brought the [‘Heartbreaker’] track to me,” says Game. “He’s like, ‘Yo Game, this is for you. You can have that.’ Those are his words.”
Game says despite the possible court case over the track, there is no love lost,
“I still got nothin’ but respect for RZA [and] the whole Wu, and all of that,” says oft-beefing rapper. “I’m good. I’m good friends with Ghostface [Killah] and [Raekwon] and Method [Man]. Those are my dudes. I would never speak down on RZA or any of those dudes for that matter – not that any of those dudes [have anything] to do with this conversation. But with the Wu, you gotta speak to a pack. It’s all love.”
