RZA says the legal beef between him and Game won't go any further.
Although previous reports, as well as back-and-forth statements, indicated that the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA would be suing The Game for illegally using one of his beats, it appears that the matter has been settled.
RZA addressed the matter last week, but never indicated that he would not be taking legal action. The legendary producer quashed rumors that he would be suing Game over the track "Heartbreaker," which was featured on the West Coast emcee's Purp & Patron: The Hangover mixtape. The track was produced by RZA, and features Lil Chuuuch.
“I COULD NEVER TAKE GAME TO COURT... I LOVE THAT DUDE...HE IS MY FAVORITE FROM THE NEW GENERATION OF WEST COAST M.CEES..." wrote RZA in a statement, according to MTV. "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”
As of press time, Game has yet to respond to RZA's statement.
