It’s the hip-hop battle of the year, and I’m not talking about Chris Brown and Drake.
To settle the score of a recent Hollywood Hills scuffle, 40 Glocc and Game (formerly known as The Game) will battle it out in the ring for fans live in Las Vegas. Refereeing the match will be hip-hop big man Rick Ross. Proceeds from the event will go to charity.
Celebrity Boxing who is promoting the event reveals all the juicy details.
Game and 40 Glocc will go head-to-head in three, one-minute rounds in their “Grudge Match.” The fight will go down on September 22 and a Vegas location has yet to be determined.
According to Celebrity Boxing founder Damon Feldman, the fight was inevitable. Feldman hopes that the lineup will attract a crowd and settle the score for a street fight that happened earlier this year between the two rappers.
For their appearances and punches, Game and 40 Glocc will come away with some sweet paydays, even if they lose. The winner will receive a $500,000 check and the loser will settle for $250,000.
Rick Ross will receive and undisclosed fee for his refereeing efforts.
In addition to the payouts, $250,000 will be donated to 1-on-1 Boxing’s “Guns Down, Hands Up” campaign that aims to use boxing as a vehicle to get violence off the streets. The organization is the brainchild of Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Robert Coles.
The original confrontation between the rappers happened in July. Game and his crew – possibly carrying guns – reportedly jumped 40 Glocc and assaulted him while Game filmed the whole thing.
