Rapper The Game, and his entourage of friends were targeted in a shooting outside of a famous Miami Beach hotel this morning. The night before The Game was dissing Meek Mill, calling him a “snitch” at his Miami concert at STORY nightclub. Are the two incidents related?
Police reports said that around 7:30 a.m., a Mustang convertible drove past the valet of the Fontainebleau Hotel firing multiple gunshots into The Game’s white Mercedes-Benz G Wagon.
Fortunately for the rapper, he was not in the vehicle at the time of the shooting. TMZ reported that the SUV was empty and no one was injured.
The targeted shooting comes just days after the 20th anniversary of Tupac’s murder by gunshot.
The night before, The Game was hosting and performing at STORY Nightclub, down the street from the Fontainebleau Hotel where he and his crew were staying.
The Game’s manager Wack 100 told TMZ that the vehicle that was shot was not even their vehicle. The Game was being driven around in a totally different car.
Seems like the attackers didn’t quite do their research.
The Game’s cars were the black Chevy SUV next to the white G Wagon and a white Range Rover, which was parked about 15 feet away from where the shots were fired.
Police are still investigating this story.

During his performance at STORY, The Game took some digs at rapper Meek Mill, calling him a snitch and threatening him.
“I just wanna beat that ni**a a** for a good time.
When you see me ni**a, square up. It don’t gotta be about no guns, ni**a. F*ck Meek Mill.”
The Game went at Meek later in the evening again, hinting at what may have been the origin of their bad blood with the track “I Never Heard Of That.”
“Meek Mill not snitching on me, I never heard of that.”
Meek and The Game aren’t linked together very often, although they collaborated over a year ago on a song called “The Soundtrack.”
In an Instagram post that could be interpreted as a rebuttal, Meek wrote, “We ain’t rapping fan handle ya biz……… I love this sh*t lol.”
The Game also shared the tracklist for his upcoming album 1992 at his show that night.
The album will be a follow up to his previous Block Wars. 1992 is expected to be an autobiographical album inspired by his life and upbringing.
“My daddy is from Nuttyblock, my uncle was from Nuttyblock
My mama was from Hoover, how she end up here cuttin’ rock?
Four year old on the lap, that was my older sister
Photos of Tuki and my father, now you get the picture.”
To hold fans over in the meantime, The Game released a single off the album “True Colors/It’s On.”
The Game’s single is available for free on iTunes if you pre-order the deluxe addition of 1992.
This morning, The Game dropped a Meek Mill diss track titled “92 Bars.”
“Blood will be drippin’ like Niagara if I poke Meek/Nicki won’t get no sleep, I’m coming through at 4 a.m./Four deep, leave the dead body on the soaked sheet.”
Meek Mill’s cousin was killed in a Philadelphia shooting just days ago.
21-year-old Angelo Colon was reportedly one of five people killed in a series of shootings and stabbings in the area that night according to TMZ.
Law enforcement confirmed that Angelo suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Meek Mill is from Philadelphia himself and shared his grief and frustration over Instagram.
The Game accused Meek Mill of snitching at his Miami show. Snitching on what?
Apparently, he was referring to the investigation into the robbery of Sean Kingston in an L.A. nightclub TMZ reported.
There was an incident back in June at Penthouse Nightclub & Dayclub where singer Sean Kingston was attacked on the head with a bottle and robbed. A $300 thousand chain was stolen off of his neck. Both Meek Mill and The Game were also present that evening at the Penthouse Club.
The Game believes that Meek Mill was involved in the accusation of Game or someone in his crew being involved with the attack on Kingston.
When he was on stage in Miami, The Game hinted that he was being investigated for the crime and you could clearly sense the rapper’s anger.
According to reports, the investigation is no longer open because Kingston has stopped cooperating with the authorities.
At 12:30 p.m. today (Sep. 19) Meek Mill responded on Instagram.
“U wanna fight? Next morning a diss raps…… Then the pre-order links! THE JIG IS UP YALL GUYS REAL RAPPERS! Make sure y’all go support them industry cats!”
Meek basically accused The Game as using the situation to exaggerate and make a scene so that he could promote his new single and album coming out.
