Ed Sheeran Reveals That The Game Once Got Him So High He Had to Go Home: 'I Was Out'
Just over a decade ago, following the release of his album Jesus Piece, The Game began collaborating with Ed Sheeran. On a recent appearance on the Fitzy & Wippa podcast, Sheeran recalled the time he smoked weed with The Game in his Compton studio, which didn't end well for him.
“I remember I was in the studio once in, like 2013,” Ed Sheeran began. “I was doing some records with The Game and he took me to Compton. And we were in the studio and we probably made like 13, 14 songs. And towards the end of the session his boys come in and they’re sort of like, it starts being a bit of a party.
“And I’m like, ‘Ah, do you know what? I’m in Compton. I’m with The Game.’ I took a tiny, tiny, tiny puff on something and I was out. I was like, ‘I have to go home.’ This is like 2013 though. I don’t really do that at all. When in Rome, [right]?”
Despite announcing a collaborative album with Ed Sheeran in 2014, the project never saw the light of day.
