After criticizing 6ix9ine in the past, The Game says he now feels sad for the imprisoned rapper.

On Wednesday (Sept. 25), TMZ caught up with the California rapper while he was in Downtown L.A. and asked him how he felt about 6ix9ine's testimony against Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack. Before he labeled the "Gummo" rapper a snitch, The Game admitted that he actually has sympathy for Tekashi.

"I feel sad for that kid," The Game told TMZ. "I feel sad for a lot of kids that's getting into this shit and don't know what they're doing. They're claiming to be something they are not and, you know, this is how it turns out. So at this point he's got to do what he has to do to save himself but snitching ain't the way, partna."

The Compton MC has been one of 6ix9ine fiercest critics since even before the Brooklyn rapper was arrested on federal racketeering charges. During his 45 European Tour last year, The Game pumped up the crowd by enticing them to chant, "Fake-Ass Blood" and then instructed them to shout out another chant, "Fuck 6ix9ine." Afterward, The Game called out people for labeling 6ix9ine as the King of New York, which prompted Tekashi to diss him on "Blood Walk."

The Game still believes that 6ix9ine is a snitch, but now he sounds more sympathetic towards him than ever before. The Game also said that 6ix9ine should serve time in prison for what he's done.

"Gotta do the time," The Game continued. "If you gonna do the crime, you gotta do the time. I don't care how long it is. We ain't snitching out here."
