When Peyton Manning threw that interception in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLIV, the Game says he felt the $1,000 he put up on the Colts slipping through his fingers. The underdog New Orleans Saints won the game and surprised a lot of NFL fans.
"I lost some money, man," Game admitted. "I was going with the Colts, man — for no reason. The Saints or the Colts, that ain't my team, man. I'd figured Peyton Manning wouldn't disappoint in the Bowl, but he got his Jim Kelly on. He could have easily tied that game up. But [Manning] was outta the game. I know that face — it's like that sick face n---as make when they knowing it's a wrap. He couldn't shake the face. He came out and played exactly how his expression was. He's used to having it his way. [The Saints] came out there and did they thing, man."
Game says he lost about $1,000 to Dr. Dre, his lab partner for his new LP The R.E.D. Album. The controversial MC watched the game at the Doc's crib and even had a chance to reflect on his career while the Who played the halftime show.
"I was sitting outside of Dre's house yesterday, me and Stat Quo. We was talking about my career and where he is with his and the people that were around that ain't around," Game recalled. "He was telling me, 'N---a, you did the sh--, you went up against everybody,' and we really right back here in Dre's front yard talking at halftime of the game. [Stat] was going for the Colts too. He lost some money to Dre too — gotta throw him under the bus too. But yeah man, the way the life is and the way sh-- happens, it's crazy. But it's a beautiful thing that a n---a is still existing in hip-hop and has the force to sell records."
Game's new album will also feature production by Pharrell Williams and Cool — Dre and appearances by Rick Ross, Ashanti and Justin Timberlake.
