“I’m going to speak on something [The Game] don’t ever speak on,” Wack said before reciting the hook from “What Up Gangsta.” “What up, cuz? What up, blood? What up, gangsta? Who you think wrote that? I’m going to leave it alone.”
During a recent appearance on The Breakfast Club, 50 Cent responded to the claims, explaining that he didn’t even know who The Game was at that point in his career.
“[The Game] said he wrote ‘What Up Gangsta.’ I’m like, ‘C’mon, bro. You wasn’t even around when we did that. That was before you even came into the picture,’” Fif said. “That was Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. We didn’t even know who he was until after. There’s a point when you [reach] desperation and you’ll say anything.”

He then confirmed he wrote a handful of other tracks on Game’s 2005 album, although the Compton rapper previously stated — in the same Clubhouse chat Wack said Game wrote “What Up Gangsta” — that 50 only wrote “what you heard him say on the record” and didn’t help him write his own bars.
Elsewhere in his Breakfast Club interview, 50 Cent recalled the time Beyoncé confronted him over his long-simmering rivalry with JAY-Z.
