Following Chris Brown's delayed American Music Awards performance, The Game has expressed his displeasure with the lack of unity among Hip Hop and R&B performers.
Brown announced the cancellation on Instagram on Saturday (November 19), which was supposed to be a full-fledged Michael Jackson homage to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Thriller, but disclosed that the AMAs canceled his act at the last minute.
"ARE YOU SERIOUS?" Breezy posted a video of himself doing some trademark Michael Jackson movements on Instagram. “WOULDVE been the ama performance but they canceled me for reasons unknown.”
In the comments section, Jacquees and Dreezy defended Brown, but The Game believes that every rap and R&B artist should have supported Brown when the cancellation news surfaced.
“When they pulled @chrisbrownofficial’s performance from the AMA’s…all hip hop & r&b artists should’ve declined to,” he wrote on his IG Story. “But we’ll never be that unified & that’s why they keep & will always use us, suck the culture dry & disrespect us in our faces and behind our backs.”
Jermaine Dupri recently defended Breezy and warned that Black music is "in peril" as a result of the cancellation.
“If the American Music Awards canceled the Chris Brown performance,” Dupri said in a clip posted to his Instagram, “then that means they canceled the 40th anniversary of Thriller. Which means they canceled the Michael Jackson tribute. Black Music, we in trouble.” He captioned it, "Remember I told you."
The American Music Awards released its lineup for this year on October 31, however there was no mention of a tribute to Michael Jackson or Thriller, which will be 40 years old on November 30. Brown's accusation has yet to be addressed by the AMAs.
