The Game is being put on blast for allegedly scamming aspiring rappers out of loads of money.
The allegations first surfaced via Instagram from @thefoocommunity, which reported that the Game has allegedly been contacting several up-and-coming artists, reportedly offering them a “$500-$1000 slot on one of his SoundCloud mixtapes.”
However, once the aspiring artists pay the fee, the “Hate It Or Love It” musician reportedly doesn’t hold up his end of the bargain.
According to the account, the Born 2 Rap artist “doesn’t upload on his verified SoundCloud account, he uploads on a separate account with only 266 followers. In addition, he doesn’t market it on Instagram or Facebook, nor makes an appearance on any [of] the songs.”
What's more, the page also indicates that when the Game dropped seven compilation mixtapes in December 2020 — a combined 241 tracks — barely any of the tracks reached no more than 250, for the most part. The most a single song drove was 1,200 views, allegedly.
Per the post, “Rappers are angry because the game tells them he will work with them on a song, but claim that it’s all cap so you can purchase a slot on one of his tapes. They’re upset because he gives them a false sense of hope that maybe one day they can collab together.
The Game’s alleged victims also suspect that he's resorted to this after losing a lawsuit that has him owing a $7.1 million judgment.
At the time of this writing, The Game has not issued a response to these allegations.
