"The police officer thing, that was a poor decision on my part," Game told Sway. "One, I didn't know he was a police officer, and number two, he was talking like he wasn't a police officer at all, and he was also throwing me jabs. I got tired and made a bad decision. I'm going to have to pay for it with some jail time sooner or later, which is all good. I'm a man, I'm cool with that. I made a mistake. I think that was really the last straw for me... it don't matter if I beat up a rapper, they're not going to take it on the chin, they're going to sue me. I have an altercation with a police officer, I'm getting sued. It's just a lose-lose."

He said he might have to spend three years in jail if found guilty. "It's serious," he added. "It's a little bit more serious. We gonna go in there with a good team of lawyers and we gonna do what we can."

In general though, Game appeared to maintain an optimistic outlook on life. "I think if going at Jay Z didn't hurt my career, I think I'll be alright," he notes. Game recently put out a video for "100" with Drake, revisit that below.
