The Game to Take Social Media Hiatus, Confirms New Date of Album Release After Several Delays When making the announcement, the 'How We Do' spitter laments being 'backstabbed [and] betrayed' after he 'witnessed disloyalty on levels unimaginable by people I've trusted with my heart, money, career [and] livelihood.'
The Game is taking a step back from social media. When explaining the reason behind his decision, the "How We Do" rapper also revealed the new date of his "Drillmatic" album release after it was pushed back several times.
Making use of Instagram on Monday, August 1, the 42-year-old shared photos of his cut finger and some snaps of himself getting back treatment. He began his caption, "PSA to any & everyone it may concern: I've always prided myself on my transparency in tow with sharing every part of my life & myself with my family, friends & my fans… the past two weeks have been a nightmare for me."
"I have witnessed disloyalty on levels unimaginable by people I've trusted with my heart, money, career & livelihood. Not only have I been backstabbed & betrayed.. I've been left to pick up the pieces alone," he added. "I'm in no way shape or form angry with anyone for choosing to act in the manner they have as of recent & send love & well wishes from this day forward as there is no hate, malice or vengefulness in my heart."
"On top of that, I've been in therapy for 2 weeks for my back for inflamed muscles & a bruised tailbone from over working out. I also had an accident last night n cut my finger to the bone & had to recieve 6 stitches," the Los Angeles-born emcee continued. "It's been rough.. so I've decided to take a step back from my phone, social media & group settings, clubs etc so I can focus on completing my album so that my fans are happy with the delivery."
The Game went on to divulge, "The date is AUGUST 12TH 2022 & I promise you it will not change or move. I've given everything that I am to this album & I guarantee GREATNESS." He then noted, "If any of my family or close friends are looking for me & it's important… DM @almighty__joey & he will give you my email. I will reply when I can."
"This break is for my MENTAL HEALTH & to afford myself the capacity to complete my album in full & stay committed to my release date. I thank everyone for supporting my most recent freestyle & all who have supported me throughout my career," the rapper told his fans. "Stay safe, Covid & Monkey Pox free… & just know…Life is short so LOVE on who LOVES YOU !!!"
