The former G-Unit rapper has mentioned in past records that he would sign with Cash Money but this news is still surprising. Cash Money Records has gotten one more superstar artist on their roster to represent them.
After the release of his Jesus Piece album in 2012, Game's contract with Interscope Records expired.
Game rose to fame in 2000 with the help of Dr. Dre and then signed with G-Unit. However, a feud with the G-Unit boss, 50 Cent, Game left Aftermath Records. He signed with Geffen Records afterwards and then with Interscope.
The Game has released a classic album with The Documentary. He also had success with his other albums but his first album is his magnum opus. It has sold 5 million albums so far and his second album, Doctor's Advocate, was named best rap album of the year by The New York Times.
The G-Unit feud that made Game depart from Aftermath Records is still on going. 50 Cent and Game have taken shots at each other over the years. Game tried to make a G-Unit reunion happen but 50 Cent shot the attempt down and made Game look silly.
The fact that Game is a great rapper isn't debatable and his presence in hip hop is felt. 50 Cent has gotten more involved with business but still raps time to time.
Rap feuds helped with album sales and people thought that this was just another publicity stunt to help with album sales. Game leaving G-Unit was a shocker at the time and it makes you wonder how big G-Unit could have been if Game never departed from G-Unit.
