Game Revisits Ras Kass Beatdown on New Year’s Eve
In an appearance on Power 106’s ‘Big Boy’s Neighborhood’ morning show, rapper Game revisited his New Year’s Eve fight with fellow West Coast MC Ras Kass. After the dust cleared, both rappers originally claimed they won the fight and beat the other to the ground. Now, Game is reiterating that he knocked down Kass, who was then removed by security from the venue.
“I beat up Ras Kass on New Year’s,” Game told Big Boy on Monday (March 21). “I tried. I gave him 18 chances. I said I don’t want no problems. As I was walking away, he said, ‘You know what? I got a problem!’ I was like, ‘Damn.’ It was right as the ball was dropping.” As the Compton native explained his story, he made a motion to imply that he knocked Kass to the floor.
Controversy between Game and Ras Kass goes as far back as 2006, when both artists issued numerous diss tracks towards one another. Things appeared to die down, but then Kass signed with G-Unit associate 40 Glocc and ignited more crossfire around authenticity and loyalty between the two rappers.
As for the New Year’s fight, Game still gave his opponent some props for being an underrated artist.
“Nobody heard it. Security took him out like, ‘We got him, Game.’ I always felt that he was one of the more underrated artists. I’ll beat you up and still give you props,” he joked.
