    50 Cent, Game call a truce

    Rappers 50 Cent and The Game have called a truce.

    After battling it out verbally and seeing their entourages have a skirmish and shoot-out in front of radio station Hot 97 last week that injured one of The Game's friends, the rappers plan a joint appearance this afternoon in Manhattan to announce a public halt to their disagreement. They will make charitable donations to both the Boys Choir of Harlem and the Compton Unified School District Music Program, according to a joint press release issued by Interscope Records.

    "I'm launching a new foundation, the G-Unity Foundation, Inc., to help people overcome obstacles and make a change for the better in their lives -- to help them overcome their situations," 50 Cent said in a statement. "I realized that if I'm going to be effective at that, I have to overcome some of my own. Game and I need to set an example in the community."

    The Game, a Compton, Calif., native, said he hopes that ending their beef will set an example. "I see this as a real opportunity to show the power of our community," he said in a statement. "50 and I are proving that real situations and real problems can be solved with real talk. This can also be seen as a big step for my organization, Black Wall Street, in terms of making a difference. Maybe we can help save some lives -- the way rap music saved mine."

    Their appearance comes on the heels of today's announcement that 50 Cent's "The Massacre" is the No. 1 album in the country, selling about 1.1 million copies between Thursday and Sunday.

    Earlier this week, 50 Cent said those who called his entire battle with The Game a publicity stunt were "ignorant." He said the publicity surrounding his high-profile battles, while it may help his album sales, "hurts all my other ventures," including his G-Unit clothing sales, tennis shoe deal with Reebok and line of beverages. "I make more money away from music than I do from music," he said.

    thank you!!! who didn't know it was a publicity stunt?? as for hip hop needing big beef, I don't think so... musical beef that's reasonable can produce good music (ie jay-z v. nas= ether), but the personal stuff just makes us look ignorant... like violent criminals. we don't need anybody else substantiating stereotypes.
