The Game Implied that He Should Have Been Part of the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show

There seems to be a sense of resentment following Sunday's monumental halftime show featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent.

In response to disgruntled fans who pointed out his absence on Instagram, the Los Angeles rapper didn't directly state he should have been included in the show, but indirectly hinted that he should have been.

In a tweet, a supporter wrote: "@losangelesconfidential should have been on stage at the Super Bowl,". A second user wrote, "@LosAngelesconfidential should have performed at the Super Bowl with @DrDre, since this is LA.".

Since Game has been left out of the loop for several weeks, this is not the first time it has happened. His Instagram post in January was a combo of promoting Drillmatic and reminding T.I., Funk Flex, and Ebro Darden that he hadn't forgotten the time they left him off their Top 50 Rappers list last year. It appeared he was partially motivated by the slight when he created the new album.

“@oldmanebro @funkflex & @troubleman31…… I ain’t forgot about these lists…,” Game wrote in the caption of his post. “#DRILLMATIC coming soon…. HURRICANE GAME LIVES y’all shoulda just threw my baby mamas in there too !!!!”

A slew of promotional activities have been conducted by The Game in anticipation of his new album, which is entirely produced by Hit-Boy and will feature his Kanye West collaboration "Eazy." The song charted at No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it The Game's highest-charting track in nearly 15 years.

As a result of Ye calling out Pete Davidson, his ex-wife's new boyfriend, in his verse, the single has garnered a lot of attention, but Jay Electronica tweeted in January that the song should be considered one of the greats.

“E A Z Y is one of the greatest records of all times. Don’t @ me. You’re unqualified to debate me,” Electronica wrote.
