Default The Game & Fat Joe Show Hip-Hop Unity In New York



South Bronx, NY rapper Fat Joe and Compton, CA rapper The Game took steps toward ending any residual tension between the East and West coasts yesterday (Nov. 14), at the Virgin Mega Store in New York.

The rappers represent the South Bronx and Compton, two Hip-Hop epicenters that feuded during the 1990's, touching off the "East Coast/West Coast" feud.

The origins of the feud can be traced to Tim Dog's scathing 1991 dis, "F**k Compton," which featured Tim Dog, of the South Bronx dissing Compton, Dr. Dre, N.W.A. and others.

A barrage of responses came from West Coast rappers, with replies coming from MC Eiht ("Who's F**king Who"), Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg ("F**k With Dre Day") and others.

The coastal tensions climaxed with the infamous unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur in Sept. of 1996 and Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace in March of 1997.

Yesterday, new albums from Fat Joe ( Me, Myself and I ) and The Game ( Doctor's Advocate ) hit stores.

The two rappers appeared at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square, where The Game purchased a copy of Fat Joe's Me album, while Fat Joe bought a copy of The Game's new release.

"It was a great day for unity in Hip-Hop," Fat Joe told AllHipHop.com. "To me its all about the music its not about competition, even with both of us coming out on the same day we showed that you can support each other, Hip-Hop needs more of that."

The Game is showcased on the song "Breathe and Stop," contained on Fat Joe's Me, Myself and I.

The Game's Doctor's Advocate and Fat Joe's Me, Myself and I both hit stores yesterday (Nov. 14).
