The Game Breaks Silence On Manager’s Son’s Assault

Posted By on April 3, 2007

Compton, CA rapper The Game has broken his silence regarding an incident in Manhattan, NY, in which the 14-year-old son of Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond was allegedly assaulted by rival G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo.

On "Body Bags," a new track released to the Internet yesterday, The Game, who is managed by Rosemond, addressed the altercation between Yayo and the 14-year-old boy.

"Body Bags" makes it clear that despite a protest against G-Unit and a press conference that was attended by Al Sharpton, Councilman Charles Barron and others yesterday (Apr. 2), both sides may be far from a sit-down to resolve the issue.

The Game raps: Potato on the muzzle, black tape on the grip/We in the A-Team van with black tape on your b***h/She gonna tell us where you at, we gonna twist that dro/And just wait until the rat climbs out that hole/Know the streets aint safe, when we see him we gonna eat that face/No body we gonna beat that case/It's on again, two shots of patron, I'm in….

The four-minute song, which was released on The Game's official Myspace page, samples a portion of Damien Marley's song "Welcome to Jamrock" and continues to berate G-Unit and Tony Yayo for allegedly assaulting the 14-year-old boy.

The Game also calls out 50 Cent and various associates and warns them to call "god" because his rivals may be meeting them soon.

One line in the song dashed hopes for a reconciliation between The Game and Young Buck, who met before the altercation involving Yayo and Rosemond's son, with hopes of putting their heated rivalry on ice.

"We just left the situation on the phone call on the note of ‘you do you without involving G-Unit and me in your music and we do us without involving you or what you got going in our music," Young Buck told AllHipHop.com last week. "And that’s the level we left the conversation on."

On "Body Bags," The Game alludes to two of the most infamous diss records in rap music history, Nas' "Ether" and Tupac Shakur's "Hit 'Em Up."

This aint 'Ether,' This aint 'Hit Em Up, this is a lot of dead bodies/who gonna pick them up/ we just shot the corner/who gonna drive to the truck/f**k the whole G-Unit, who lied to Buck?

Rosemond manages The Game. Once a member of G-Unit, The Game has feuded with 50 Cent and the rest of the G-Unit collective for several years, after the two argued over contributions to The Game's debut album, The Documentary.

The violence escalated on Mar. 20, when Yayo saw the boy walking down W. 25 St. in Manhattan and allegedly backhanded the boy because he was wearing a Czar Entertainment shirt.

Yayo was charged with one count of misdemeanor assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor.

He is scheduled to appear in court to answer the charges on Apr. 25.
