*Los Angeles based civil rights activist, Najee Ali, director of Project Islamic H.O.P.E is calling for Compton, CA parents to boycott Compton rapper “The Game‘s” new app, “Block Wars.” Ali is coming at Jayceon Terrell Taylor, better known by his stage name “The Game,” for tarnishing and tainting the city of Compton now that its new mayor, Aja Brown, has been working diligently to restore positivity about the city’s name and image since she took office.
The Game is currently preparing to launch his new “Block Wars” app and has teamed up with IM3 Gaming Studios to create a urban style mobile game set in Compton. The goal? Conquer one street at a time while competing with rival gangs to sell drugs, guns, knives, buildings and cars. As you may have guessed, Game himself stars as the hood boss in his hometown and the app is set to be released this summer and it’ll be free, but in-app purchases — for weapons, cars, goons, etc. — will range from 99 cents to $99.00
“We challenge the Game” to create an App that will teach and encourage the young people of Compton not to kill each other but to go to college. The Game is exploiting the city of the Compton and promoting a negative image that many Compton community leaders and residents dont agree with, and have worked for years to overcome and change. Why the Game would choose to encourage gang killings, drug selling, robbery and murder in the city of Compton with his App is shameful and pathetic. No parent should allow their child to download or support a game that helps taint the city of Compton and encourages its youth to sell drugs and murder each other,” stated Ali, director of Project Islamic H.O.P.E.( Helping Oppressed People Everywhere )
Here’s (violent) promo for the app/game:
