Game says a club in Hollywood, Calif. is conspiring with the LAPD to discriminate against African-Americans and other minorities.

Lure nightclub, which hosts a weekly party called "Toxic," has been working with authorities to keep certain races and high profile patrons away from its doors and cops have been holding town hall meetings to enforce the secret plot, he claims. 

"Racism is I guess still alive," the Compton native told TMZ. 'Cause all of a sudden — the place where they do 'Toxic,' which is Club Lure, is meeting with the LAPD, and I guess the LAPD is having these town hall meetings... they don't want minorities again, Black, [and] athletes in their clubs."

In the last year alone, Game says he and friends have spent $250,000 in Lure. The nightclub is owned by the same company behind the Supperclub, where he and T.I. were involved in a misunderstanding with police last month. 

The father of three didn't specify how he was tipped off to the information, but he plans to take some kind of action against Lure. "I talked to my lawyer about it and he was pretty upset about it. He's looking for whoever is issuing that threat, cause they're saying they're gon' shut clubs down if they let rappers, athletes, and minorities in and it's like, how do you do that?" 

Game is used to lending his voice to different causes. He recently encouraged a boycott of the Los Angeles Clippers after team owner Donald Sterling was exposed making racist comments to his alleged mistress.

In this case, he wants to "blacklist" Lure and other clubs if necessary. "Whenever something like that's going on I'm more than happy to stand up and be the voice for the people," he said.

Law enforcement sources say Game's allegations are false.
