HAZE Posted March 9 Report Share Posted March 9 50 Cent And The Game To Call A Truce 03.09.2005 11:16 AM EST Press conference scheduled for Wednesday (March 9).50 Cent publicly severed ties with the Game last week, but on Wednesday (March 9) the two are apparently going to squash their beef in front of the world with the hope of setting an example for hip-hop.At 2 p.m. in New York's Harlem neighborhood, 50 and Game will be holding a press conference about their differences and will also pledge donations to charity. "I'm launching a new foundation, the G-Unity Foundation, Inc., to help people overcome obstacles and make a change for the better in their lives ... to help them overcome their situations," 50 Cent said in a statement. "I realized that if I'm going to be effective at that, I have to overcome some of my own. Game and I need to set an example in the community.""I see this as a real opportunity to show the power of our community," Game said in his own statement. "50 and I are proving that real situations and real problems can be solved with real talk. This can also be seen as a big step for my organization, Black Wall Street, in terms of making a difference. Maybe we can help save some lives ... the way rap music saved mine."The well-publicized split between Game and 50 occurred last week when 50 appeared on New York radio twice in one day denouncing the Compton, California, native, calling him treacherous and jealous. 50's tirade ended when he was abruptly escorted from Hot 97 in the midst of his interview with Funkmaster Flex. Game and his crew came up to Hot 97 when 50 was on the air but were denied entrance to the building. A 24-year-old man, also from Compton, was shot when Game's crew got into a confrontation with another faction outside the building (see "50 Drops Game From G-Unit; Shots Fired At Radio Station").http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1497921/03092005/50_cent.jhtml?headlines=trueNice publicity stunt Interscope.
