Did The Game Diss Long Beach?

(Radio.com) Does The Game have a beef with Long Beach? On Monday, the Compton rapper announced the release of his custom keyboard emojis designed to add some fun to his fans' daily texting.

Offered through app creator Moji Keyboard, The Game offered up an initial launch of three pages full of icons including his face with various expressions, red and blue solo cups, Uzi sub machine guns, Converse hightops, Bic lighters, and almost a complete page of local Southern California area codes.

Within minutes of the release of the emoji series fans pointed out a glaring omission; the 562 area code. The Game offered up emojis of area codes as far away as Sacramento and San Diego but turned apparently turned his back on Long Beach, which shares a boarder with Compton and has a population more than four times its size.

Now, Snoop Dogg is the unofficial spokesman for Long Beach and has been since the early 90s. Long Beach or "LBC" is mentioned in dozens of his songs, and the rapper coaches football for a local team and donates his time to charity. Does Snoop's that representation preclude The Game from giving a nod to the city's area code? Read more here.
