The Game Denies Eminem and Proof Diss
The rapper says he meant no harm with lyrics about Shady and Proof

The Game has hit back after claims that he dissed Eminem and dead rapper Proof in new song lyrics. A track called My Life recently leaked online and included the words: All the pictures of me and Em, I burned them/ So there ain't no proof I walked through 8 Mile/ And so since it ain't no Proof, I'll never walk through 8 Mile." Now the rapper- real name Jayceon Taylor- has denied that he was slating former friend Slim Shady and the D12 member who was shot in 2006. He said: 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 whenever 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 it, I realized that people would take it the wrong way." The Game has now completely changed the verse on My Life- which features on his new album L.A.X- to avoid controversy. The hip hop star added: 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." L.A.X comes out in the US on August 26 and is rumoured to feature Lil Wayne, Nas, Ludacris and Ne-Yo.
