Game alleges that L.A.'s Club Lure has conspired with the city's police to discriminate against "Blacks, athletes" and minorities.
In the wake of Game and T.I.'s tense standoff with the L.A.P.D. outside of the city's Supperclub, it seems like Game has noticed something fishy going on in L.A.'s club scene. In a new interview with TMZ, he claims that Club Lure, a nightclub that holds an event called Toxic that he's previously attended, is meeting with the police department in order to coordinate discrimination against a certain type of clientele.
"Racism is, I guess, still alive," Game told TMZ. "The place where they do Toxic, which is Club Lure, is meeting with the LAPD and I guess the LAPD is having these town hall meetings. They don't want minorities again, Blacks, athletes, in their clubs."
He went on to add, "At the end of the day, me and my crew alone spent maybe $250,000 last year in Toxic, just that club. So, I don't really know what's up, what I'm gonna do about it. I talked to my lawyer yesterday and he was pretty upset about it. He's looking for whoever is issuing that threat. They're saying they're gonna shut clubs down if they let rappers, athletes, minorities in. How do you do that? They're saying you can't have any celebrities on your flyer or let any big celebrities promote the club or they're threatening to shut down the club."
The aforementioned incident involving T.I. and the police began with a pair of the rappers' friends being refused entry into Supperclub, so although it's a different club entirely, Game may have some hard evidence to back up his claim.
As for now, Club Lure and the L.A.P.D. are denying these claims, and Game is boycotting Toxic.
"Is racism fixed?" Game said. "Has anybody fixed it? Whenever something like that is going on, I'm more than happy to stand up and be the voice of the people."
