The Game's verbal attack on Meek Mill last night seemingly came from nowhere.
But there may be a backstory as to why Game told a club audience he was going to beat Meek up for being a snitch, and then dropped the diss track '92 Bars' on him.
According to TMZ -- who spoke to sources close to both rappers -- Meek and Game were both present in June when Sean Kingston was hit with a bottle and got his 300K chain snatched at the Penthouse Nightclub & Dayclub in LA.
Game believes Meek told Kingston that Game or someone in his crew was responsible for the attack and robbery -- which is why Game called Meek a "snitch."
Police tell TMZ that police never believed Game was a suspect, and have closed the case because Kingston isn't cooperating.
Here's what Game said about Meek in '92 Bars:'
