For those keeping track, you can officially put the Young Thug vs. The Game beef to rest.
After some back-and-forth social media bickering between the two, cooler heads have prevailed and the situation has now been officially defused with the help of Chicago’s Jojo Capone.
The situation began when The Game inserted himself in the middle of the ongoing Thug and Lil Wayne beef, but Capone recently told Forbes DVD of the role he had in putting the simmering beef to bed once and for all.
“I guess Game went to [Thug’s] Instagram page and seen [sic] a picture of me on the page. He was like, ‘Aw d—. I done went [sic] at this dude. Big homie rocking with him, so let me hit him up,’ ” Capone says. “He told me what happened. I was like, ‘Before this s—gets out of hand, let me go ahead and put the water on the flame.”
Capone then played mediator to get an understanding between them.
Young Thug posted the following on his Instagram to let fans know he was done with the beef: “See the way the world is set up, they want all blacks to kill each other. But we’re not. Black Lives Matter. So I salute Game, I respect him. I’m sorry for making that post about him. Even though he was wrong, and he was in the wrong business, and taking up for a n—a who wasn’t taking up for themselves [sic]. It’s all good.”
According to Capone, with both rappers recently showing support for the Baltimore protesters and the #BlackLivesMatter movement, simultaneously engaging in an escalating war of words with each other was contradictory.
“Don’t give the police a reason to kill one of y’all,” Capone said he told the rappers. “I didn’t ask them. I begged both of them to leave that s— alone. You can’t turn around and be hypocritical and say ‘Black Lives Matter’ then y’all two go at each other.”
