The Game Speaks Out Against Label’s “Slave Mentality” When Asked About Kesha
The Game was out and about in Hollywood on Monday (April 18) evening, and perhaps it was the Kermit The Frog t-shirt he was wearing that compelled him to tell TMZ the true tea about Kesha‘s legal battle with Dr. Luke and Sony. The site approached the rapper on the sidewalk near Tiffany’s On Vine and asked for his thoughts on the case.
“Let her off the label, man,” The Game told the site. “Just let her do her thing… I don’t understand music and the slave mentality, man. You now, if the artist is not happy, you should let the artist do their thing.”
When reminded by the TMZ reporter that Kesha signed a contract, The Game replied, “Fuck the contract. You know what a contract is? A piece of paper that I signed when I was dumb and illiterate to the music business.”
Over the weekend, Kesha made her first high-profile public appearance since her court case began when she joined Zedd on stage at Coachella to sing “True Colors.” The singer was dealt a legal blow two weeks ago when several of her claims against Dr. Luke were thrown out by New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich, who in February denied Kesha the injunction she was seeking to free herself of the contract binding her to Luke and Sony’s Kemosabe Records.
