The Game, UFC Star Rampage Jackson Beefin’ Over ‘A-Team’ B.A. Baracus Role

By Ronnie Gamble   /   Published 08/04/10

The Game and Rampage JacksonRapper The Game and MMA star Rampage Jackson have a little beef brewing, after both sent a few choice words each other's way during the promotion of the big screen adaptation of The A-Team back in June.

Both were in the running for the role of B.A. Baracus, originally played by Mr. T, in the movie. However, as most already know, Jackson was chosen.

Game wasn't feeling that, believing he could've depicted B.A. better than the fighter. When Jackson finally got back into the octagon to fight "Sugar" Rashad Evans and lost,  after wraping filming, the rapper poked fun at Jackson (via an interview with AllHipHop) saying that his lost proved his wasn't the better choice for the role.

"He couldn't f*** with me. No disrespect to Rampage, but my dude Rashad Evans whupped that a**," Game said. "When he had that UFC fight against Rashad Evans and he lost, I felt like that was me [winning]. 'Don't you know n****? I play Mr. T (A-Team character 'B.A. Baracus') better than you! I pity the fool!' I went in there [the audition] and I killed the Mr. T role on my screen test."

Of course, Rampage heard what the Compton rapper said, and shortly before the film's release, he was asked about it by Ace of BBC's 1 Xtra ... and explained that he had previously challenged the Game to a fight in the cage after hearing his comments and hasn't heard from his since.

"He totally disrespected me and stuff. So I told The Game: 'Look here Game, we could have an act off where you play the role of B.A.; then we can have a rap off where you rap and I rap; then let's get in the cage and have a sparring match, let's see who'll win.' I told the Game that and he shut up talking. No response, it's like crickets for real," Rampage said, via a clip of the interview posted at WorldStarHipHop this week.

Rampage Jackson didn't stop there. He continued his rant, saying that if the tables were turned and The Game landed the role instead of him, he would've boycotted the movie. And it wouldn't be because someone else landed it over him. Rampage says he wouldn't want to watch it because Game is fake rapper and it would've taken away from the movie.

"If the Game would've got the role of B.A. Baracus, I would've never watched 'The A-Team.' I don't care if it turned into a great big franchise and they made a bunch of sequels, I would've been like 'Oh man, they got The Game?'" the UFC stated. "Homeboy was on the 'Change of Heart' dating show and his chick had a change of heart. She went with another dude. [Game] sitting there with blonde hair and he all gangsta talking about he from Compton. I'm from Memphis, and Memphis is real!"

The interview clip has been a hot topic on Twitter, and has since gotten back to the Compton rapper who tweeted (@TheGame) about it Wednesday morning (August 4).

"Rampage Jackson is an Orange County 'HOUSE WIFE.' I'm from the streets champ, I mean chump !!! Lose lips sink ships....... #checkyaself," The Game wrote.

"You a wrestler........ so go wrestle n****. Cuz if sumn happen to you out here, they lookin for me.. so keep it entertainment 'VALLEY N****'," the rapper later wrote.

The A-Team movie hit theaters back in June. To date, the film has made just over $76 million domestically.

  • Nesticles

    Gayme is a bitch with a butterfly tattoo on his face. Rampage would eat him & 3 of his goons. I'd love to see Gayme step in the cage to back up all this big talk he's throwing around.

  • jackpot66

    This nigga game is hating for real. Stop fucking crying because you lost the role. Who the fuck wants a rapper to portray a asswhooping action star. Rampage is a real beast. One of the greatest MMA fighters. Put in hard work in the japansese market and earned that respect. Stay a rapper and make that change, your time is about to be up anyways.

  • sirtheboss

    @ get some get right: fuc u! don't ever diss the dirty to try and prove a point you hoe type. Game is just that "a Game". He ain't 4 real. If he is lets see him in the cage.

  • thatflipnigga

    @ Nesticles: Rampage could beat the game up physically but on the street its whole different story because the game's goons carry glocks etc.Fists vs Glocks the game wins on this one hands down

  • Nesticles

    @thatflipnigga Ugh. Seek help friend.

  • http://freshestLETTUCE.COM freshestlettuce.com

    Real niggas are into boxing.

  • XtraTrstrL

    LOL @ the idiots talking gun play, like lil sissies. Rampage is for REAL. The Game, he may be affiliated with Bloods, but he's lame.

    And coming back at Rampage with gun play talk is a straight b*tch move.

    He'll get merked by Rampage bare handed if they meet face to face.

    And that's that!

  • http://iamsoze.blogspot.com/ VENGEANCE IS MINE!!!!

    MAN THIS IS TOO CORNY TO EVEN KEEP IT GOIN !!!!!

    FAKE WRESTLER?????

    V.S.

    A FAKE GANGSTA RAPPER?????

    NOW HOW REAL IS THAT??????

  • http://thetonygrands.wordpress.com Tony Grands™

    Lmao @ "Neil Patrick Harris weird"...

    (Cats don't know about "Doogie Howser," & if they did, they'd have to front like they don't.)

    Game is a decent rap cat, but a horrible actor. He couldn't even voice his drug-dealing character in 'GTA:San Andreas' without making him sound like he's trying to hard.

    & not for nothing, but Rampage isn't much better. Maybe they'll meet up again @ 'The Gary Coleman Story' audition (for the role of Dana Plato).

  • Baby Dame

    I think Game would eat him up in the cage. Just a thought.

  • flipa

    whos gives a fuk where these fools from actin like they hood so they hard naw nigga the hardest niggas i know are not from the hood rampage should run up on game this fool gets away withalot of b s talkin

  • http://www.gamecriestoodamnmuch.com Gameloves to cry foreal

    The game cries more than Cuba Gooding Jr. and that's not a game, lol.

    1. Rampage would smash your ass in the cage
    2. Rampage would smash your ass in the cage
    3. You didn't get the job
    4. You did not get the job

    Lastly just let it go and see if you can find that chick that dipped on your ass.

  • ryan walker

    Lol this Nigga rampage is cheesy as shit.. this Nigga say's game is fake if that was even close to true. Then shit rampage is the queen of England lol punk ass bitch. But ya game is on of the realist rapers out the bitch. And compton holdS shit down rampage, u hear me? Memphis is like Maine compared to compton lol how u going to say that's real Nigga u so stupid. And u called him out and ur never replied bull shit Nigga he ain't scared of u. He will beat that ass in a freestyle u might take in a spar but that's only cause u got training give the Nigga game a year of training actually only a half of a year and that nigga will put u out in the first round I got 5 grand on it. Oh ya and rampage u think where u from is so tough Nigga walk through cedar block in compton and see how quick u get snuffed for ur chain chump

  • carson

    ryan walker you my friend are a complete moron to imply that the game could last 30 seconds in any physical confrontation with rampage jackson! Thats like saying if rampage jackson trained for a year in rap he could beat the game in a rap battle. Did you happen to read (If you can read?) about a recent altercation between a 240 pound nfl middle linebacker starting shit with Roger Huerta a 155lb
    ufc fighter????? The 155 Huerta left that nigger sleepin in the street within 10 seconds. Seriously dude ignorance kills.
