The Game took to Instagram on Friday night to call out the Recording Academy for pulling Kanye West’s performance from the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.

“Time & time again they show us that they only want to steal the culture, not allow you to ever be their equals,” Game wrote. “In a more than obvious move for reasons of minuscule actions…. The Grammys have at the last minute decided to pull @kanyewest from performing on the show as if we didn’t know it was coming.”

The Compton rapper went on to speculate that the Grammys axed Kanye due to his beef with the host of this year’s show, Trevor Noah, who Ye attacked last weekend on Instagram. 

“Could be because @trevornoah is hosting and there was a conversation held amongst his team & the academy that led to the decision,” Game wrote. “Or because Ye’s account was suspended just days ago for reasons unknown; especially in a world where all the negativities of the world can be found on the same app with no repercussions or suspensions. We’ll just say it’s all of the above & a continuous disrespect for us & all that we have brought to the table in entertainment, media & sports over the last 100 years especially.”

Game continued his lengthy post by saying that he will not remain silent, while implying that Kanye is a victim of gaslighting.

“Speak your mind in this country for yourself, family or your people & you’re ostracized immediately & if you push them hard enough they will stop at no ends to try and put an end to you as a whole,” he added. “I for one, have never been scared to speak my mind even understanding what the consequences may be. I can’t sleep at night knowing I was quiet about issues burning holes in my heart or narratives incorrectly pushed by the mass agenda to create a mind set that the person at hand is krazy or has issues internally that are beyond repair.”

He concluded, “I’m sure I’ll be the next account suspended for speaking freely on an app created for us to equally share as humans lol. Hella shit be a joke everywhere you turn these days… but let’s keep playing their game until one day somebody WAKES us ALL the f%#! up!!!”
