The Game had some strong words about Kesha’s battle with Sony Music Group and Dr. Luke’s label Kemosabe Records. He equated what they’re doing to the singer with slavery.
TMZ caught up with the rapper on April 18th. When asked about his thoughts on Kesha’s situation, The Game said, “Let her off the label, man. Let her do her thing, man. I don’t understand music and the slave mentality. If the artist is not happy, man, you should let the artist do her thing.”
When reminded that she’s under contract with the label, The Game swiftly responded, “F— that contract.”
He added, “You know what a contract is? A piece of paper that I signed when I was dumb and illiterate to the music business, and then you figure it out, you get smart, you get aware, and you realize you signed some bulls—.”
We’re pretty sure Kesha would agree. In the meantime, the singer took the stage at Coachella on April 16th when she performed one song with Zedd, a producer who reached out to her following the court’s decision not to release her from her contract. It marked her first public performance since that decision.
