From an overseas trip, RZA responded to the allegations that he was set to sue his Hip-Hop cohort.
"Tired, and on this twitter to respond while I am in China working. I have nothing but love for Game," he said.
However, in an online declaration, RZA sent a message to The Wake-Up show's King Tech that detailed the circumstances further. The statement was made through The RZA's assistant.

The issue came about when it did not make it to the album because there was not enough time to clear the track. We spoke with Tony Martin, who informed us that the track would not be used and if it was, we would be notified. Now, that being said, they put it on a mix tape and never said anything to us; and we got an offer to have the tracked purchased by someone else.
So this is not anything personal, and RZA has nothing but love for Game, but this is business and in all fairness, it would have been cool if they would have just let us know what the intent was, because we began soliciting the track for purchase and its looks like this was a double sale issue when it wasn’t.
In a previous statement, The Game said he was surprised at the move and said that he would comply with the request.
"I think RZA [is] tryin' to sue about ['Heartbreaker'] or somethin'," Game told hiphopdx.com. "That's f**kin' crazy. Like, I don't even know how RZA sues The Game. He came to the studio and brought the ['Heartbreaker'] track to me. He's like, 'Yo Game, this is for you. You can have that.' Those are his words."
