We love Bow Wow, but we gotta be real: The Game utterly destroyed him last September when the two ended weeks of back-and-forth of Internet trash-talking and faced off in a game of [news id="1594250"]"John Madden"[/news] — in front of a live crowd. [artist id="1833864"]The Game[/artist]'s team of the Patriots destroyed B-Dub's squad of choice 55-23.
During the matchup, [artist id="450135"]Jermaine Dupri[/artist] came to the showdown to help cheer and coach Bow, but to no avail.
"I'm the sh--, man!" Game declared after the game. "I don't know what else to say. Shout-out to Jermaine Dupri for coming to pick up his little pup. ... John Madden, I love you, man."
Well it looks like JD may soon have the chance to avenge his fallen homie: The Game says he wants to get Dupri on the battlefield in a sports game of his choice.
"They be running from me, man," Game complained about some his celebrity friends who haven't stepped up to play him in sports videogames. "[Dwayne] D. Wade, Twista, Jadakiss, Bow Wow. Them n---as be running from me. All the video game heads. JD, I don't know, he don't want it. They just be running. But they know what's up with me!"
MTV News reached out to Jermaine this afternoon to see if he would accept Game's challenge, and the ATL hitmaker was all too willing to compete.
"You can't be serious?" JD said in a statement meant for Game. "You can meet me online. I'm there every other night: NBA2K baby! If you are serious, hit me up and I will give you my gamer tag."
Seems like it is on! The Game wanted us to leave his Gamer tag as well for any entertainers of regular folk who want it with him.
" 'G-A-M-E' is my tag and the other one is 'S-O-O-W-O-O'" he said. "Let them n---as know — that's me online."
Away from games, The Compton MC is working on his new LP, the R.E.D. Album as well as a slew of mixtapes. Jermaine Dupri has put together a clique called Oceans 7 which includes Nelly, Usher and Trey Songz. The collective are putting out a mixtape on Dupri's new Web site, www.global14.com.
