The Game/50 Cent feud is over

The Game has ended his long-running feud with former mentor 50 Cent, insisting the "beef" between the two rap rivals is over.

The Los Angeles rap star and his former G-Unit boss have been waging a furious war of words over royalty payments for years.

But The Game insists the feud was never anything that was going to escalate to a level of the East Coast-West Coast battle that ended with Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. losing their lives.

And now the retiring rapper insists he's happy to end the feud.

He tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "I ain't got no beef with 50. All that... was on wax (record).

"I never shot at him, he never shot at me. Both of us done said a lot. But we're not Biggie and Pac."

The Game has actually thanked 50 Cent for helping to give him a start as a rapper.

He adds: "I appreciate homey for helping me on my way up."

The Game and 50 Cent last attempted to end their war of words in May 2005 when they declared a truce at a press conference, during which they donated $253,500 (€162,000) to the Boys Choir of Harlem, New York.

The truce lasted less than a month before The Game publicly criticised 50 Cent's leadership qualities as the head of the G-Unit rap brand.
