Game ordered to pay $5 million to Greensboro officers

Throughout his career, Game has been no stranger to controversy. The Compton rapper has spent the bulk of his career insulting 50 Cent. Before he and 50 Cent began feuding, Game was a member of the crew, G-Unit, and was one of the most-loyal members. But, the in-house tension was too much, leading 50 Cent to announce the ousting of Game from G-Unit.

When he was removed from G-Unit, Game was also dropped by Aftermath Entertainment. Disappointed by being kicked out of G-Unit, Game was highly upset when Dr. Dre, his mentor, also severed ties with him. Angry about this, Game poured the energy into his Doctor’s Advocate album and began a strong promotional tour.

During this time, Game filmed his DVD, Stop Snitching/Still Lying, which was filled with disses aimed at both 50 Cent and his G-Unit team. One part of the DVD included Game going to Greensboro, North Carolina for a performance. When he stopped at the Greensboro Four Seasons Mall, Game had a confrontation with security, which led to law enforcement being involved.

The police officers, who were caught on camera, filed a lawsuit against Game for defamation of character. Being officers of the law, it was bad for their image to be featured on Game, a known gang member’s, DVD. Six years since the lawsuit was filed, the courts have ruled in favor of the police officers and Game is to now award them $5 million.
