According to Thomas, who played for the Knicks at the time, The Game approached him at Puff Daddy's old restaurant in Manhattan and asked him where 50 was. Fif was overseas, but The Game didn't accept that answer and followed Thomas to a party, hoping he could find 50.
"There was so much tension going on because, at that moment, Game was following me around the city to see if I was going to link up with Fif. It was so much tension because everybody wanted to make a move. What eased all of the tension when Snoop came," Thomas reported.
Shortly after, the beef between 50 and Game resulted in a shooting in the Hot 97 lobby in NYC.
