Rapper, The Game has come to the defence of his colleague and friend, Kanye West, claiming the voice of Black people and artistes is under seige while alleging that Kanye West has been pulled from the Grammys performance lineup after he made a racial slur towards comedian, Trevor Noah.
Kanye, 44, came under fire on Wednesday March 16, for his repeated public outbursts aimed at his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and her new boyfriend Pete Davidson, as well as comedian/TV host, Trevor Noah, who came out to criticize his behavior.
It led to Kanye being suspended from Instagram for 24 hours for his posts about Pete and Trevor, which are said to have violated Instagram’s harassment policy.
Kanye is scheduled to headline the Sunday performances at Coachella on April 17 and April 24, shortly after the Grammy Awards take place on April 3.
However there is now a petition on Change.org entitled ‘Remove Kanye from Coachella!,’ which cites his behavior toward ‘Kim, Pete and others’ and racked up more than 13,000 signatures by the small hours of Saturday morning, March 19.
The Game also stated that Kanye has been removed from the Grammy’s performance and that the alleged removal from the Grammys ‘could be’ related to the fact Trevor is hosting.
The Game, wrote: ‘The Grammys have at the last minute decided to pull @kanyewest from performing on the show as if we didn’t know it was coming.’
‘Could be because @trevornoah is hosting and there was a conversation held amongst his team & the academy that led to the decision or because Ye’s account was suspended just days ago for reasons unknown especially in a world where all the negativities of the world can be found on the same app with no repercussions or suspensions….’
‘We’ll just say it’s all of the above & a continuous disrespect for us & all that we have brought to the table in entertainment, media & sports over the last 100 years especially.’
He continued: ‘Speak your mind in this country for yourself, family or your people & you’re ostracized immediately & if you push them hard enough they will stop at no ends to try and put an end to you as a whole…. I for one, have never been scared to speak my mind even understanding what the consequences may be.
‘I can’t sleep at night knowing I was quiet about issues burning holes in my heart or narratives incorrectly pushed by the mass agenda to create a mind set that the person at hand is krazy or has issues internally that are beyond repair.’
The Game, who recently collaborated with Kanye on a track called Eazy where Kanye made fun of Kim and their ‘rich a** kids,’ continued:
‘I say all this to say, I’M WOKE….. & while I am.. lemme remind you that Colin Kapernick still isn’t allowed in the NFL, lynching just became a federal hate crime in 2022 & you can now not be discriminated from employment because of the way you decide to wear your hair….’
‘Time & time again they show us that they only want to STEAL the culture, not allow you to ever be their equals,’ wrote The Game on social media
‘GEEZ thank you massa for allowing us to slowly progress as a race 100 years at a time after all that was STOLEN from us. I’m sure I’ll be the next account suspended for speaking freely on an app created for us to equally share as humans lol. Hella s*** be a joke everywhere you turn these days… but let’s keep playing their game until one day somebody WAKES us ALL the f%#! up !!!’
