Wu-Tang member RZA says that despite his issues with The Game over using his "Heartbreaker" track on his recent "Purp & Patron" mixtape without permission, he will not take him to court.
"I COULD NEVER TAKE GAME TO COURT… I LOVE THAT DUDE…," RZA wrote in a statement. "HE IS MY FAVORITE FROM THE NEW GENERATION OF WEST COAST M.CEES… ALSO LIL CHUUUCH IS THE LAST YOUNG MAN I TOOK ON AS A STUDENT AND HE WAS ORDAINED BY MY FIRST STUDENT ASON UNIQUE…SO ITS A GOOD LOOK THAT HIM AND GAME BLESSED THE SAME TRACK… ITS JUST WE DIDNT AGREE TO RELEASE IT OR GO THRU THE PROPER CHANNELS…I'M IN ASIA AND NOT IN TUNE WITH THE CURRENT EVENTS… BUT I'M SURE ALL WILL END UP AMICABLE…LONG LIVE HIP HOP… WUTANG FOREVER…I WILL SEE YOU SOON MY BROTHER… PEACE RZA." (Statement)
Last week The Game tried to explain the issues surrounding the song…
"RZA came to the studio, and he said, 'I got a beat for you,'" Game explained in an interview. "I said, 'It's dope.' He said, 'It's you. Use it for whatever.' I thought that meant 'use it for whatever.' I guess when we put it out, his camp or he was upset — I don't know why — when it came through like that. But there's no love lost. It's always respect for RZA. I grew up on Wu-Tang. I respect RZA most as a musician and what he's doing in movies and commercials. It's one love." (MTV)
