T. Rodgers is a well-respected figure in the African American community. Rodgers is credited as a founding member of The Almighty Black P. Stone Blood Nation. Rodgers recently involved himself in ending short-lived beef between Game and Young Thug.
T. Rodgers sat down with Revolt TV explain how he orchestrated the peace talks between the two.
Rodgers said his management reached out to him to tell him the “kids need help.”
“I sprang into action and the phone calls were made,” Rodgers said.
Rodgers connected with Chicago rap veteran JoJo Capone who had played a major role in the truce.
“JoJo was the one that was active in bringing about this particular peace between these other two entities.”
Capone took to IG last week to reveal he held a peaceful conversation with both artists.
The caption on his post read, “I JUST HAD A GREAT PEACEFUL CONVERSATION WITH BOTH OF YALL I WANT TO CONTINUE TO SEE YALL SMILE AND DO WHAT YALL LOVE TO DO SUPPORT YOUR FAMILIES YALL BOTH HAVE CHILDREN AND SIBLINGS THATS ROOTING FOR PEACE SO WITH THAT BEING SAID LOVE YALL WE NEED YALL TO PUT A END TO THE MINOR SITUATION & NOT LET THE MEDIA WHO ONLY CARE ABOUT RATINGS FUEL THE SITUATION LETS LOVE AND RESPECT EACHOTHER PEACE&LOVE.”

Game confirmed the call took place after took Twitter, writing, “Just got off the horn wit my cousin @JoJoCapone1 #TheFleinGonBePutToBed #RealNiggaShit.”
“Game and Young Thug are not role models for the total African American community,” Rodgers continued. “They are idols to a small target population. It is important someone who has the wisdom to reach out to those that are crying out they need help. It is our job as black men to reach out to those that actually need help.”
Young Thug and The Game set social media ablaze last week after directing several heated verbal shots at one another.
Thug post a short vlog Wednesday calling Game a flip-flop and a former stripper.
“See you used to be a Crip now you a Blood,” he said. “So I don’t want no smoke with you. You got bloods and crips on your team. And you was a male stripper before, so I don’t wanna fight you. I don’t want no germs from you p***y n***a. And you know I’m in L.A. more than Arnold Schwarzenegger and he the governor, f*ck n*gga.”
Game quickly responded throwing shots at Thug’s sexuality.
“I seen your little video you h*e a– n*gga,” he said. “You paint your nails like a f*cking girl. You call your n*ggas bae and you a h*e a– n*gga. Keep f*cking around, n*ggas gon drive by that nail shop and light that motherf*cker up.”
