The Game Issues Statement on “My Life”

blame it on Shake July 24, 2008

So I’m just about to get some lunch and my man Ray hits me with a statement from The Game about the recent leaked joint featuring Lil Wayne. He opens up about the Eminem/Proof line and explains the reason for changing it on the album version…

When I originally wrote the song “My Life” I was trying to think back on events that affected my life and how they changed me.  When I first got signed to Aftermath and G-Unit I was exposed to so many different people from Dre to Em to 50 to Proof.  I always identified with Proof.  We were always cool and he would reach out to me when ever I was going through something  I remember when Proof died vividly and now every time I think about going to Detroit I get depressed.  That is what I was trying to say in that verse and the more I looked at I realized that people would take it the wrong way…the way they are taking it now that it leaked.  So I decided to change it so that this bullshit wouldn’t happen and now it’s happened anyway. For the record, this is not the version on my album, this is not the version that radio will get and this is not the version that I just shot the video to.  Furthermore, I apologize to anyone who took this the wrong way as that was never my intention.
