The Game has broken his silence regarding his alleged assault on off-duty LAPD officer Onyebuchi Awaji during a game of basketball last month (Mar. 29). Remarking that he has not made amends with the victim, the Compton rapper explained that his relationship with law enforcement is a strained one.
“With police and me, it ain’t really never no peace. I am who I am, I’m out here, doing me, thugging, straight outta Compton, you know,” he told TMZ. “Police is police, so they gonna do what they do. You got some officers out there that’s straight by the book, and then you got some that don’t play right. So the ones that don’t play right, I don’t f*ck with them.”
Awaji has also filed a lawsuit against The Game, claiming that he may have suffered brain damage from the blow. The rapper is alleging that he acted in self-defense following a threat from Awaji to shoot him. Authorities are still investigating the incident.
