(AllHipHop News) As fans of The A-Team gear up for the movie’s debut tonight, Compton rapper Game expressed his frustration with the director’s choice of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as the iconic figure “B.A. Baracus.”

The Game was one of several rappers who expressed serious interest in playing the role of “B.A. Baracus,” the character made famous by Mr. T.

Both Ice Cube and Common, two critically acclaimed rapper/actors, also wanted to play the role of “B.A. Baracus,” which is played by Jackson.

Jackson had to adjust his schedule and wait until he finished shooting The A-Team, in order to square-off against longtime MMA rival Rashad “Sugar” Evans.

According to Game, Jackson lost his appeal as “B.A. Baracus” after he lost a decision to Evans during UFC 114 on May 29th, further proof that the role was meant for the Compton rapper.

“He couldn’t f**k with me. No disrespect to Rampage, but my dude Rashad Evans whupped that a**,” Game told “When he had that UFC fight against Rashad Evans and he lost, I felt like that was me [winning]. ‘Don’t you know n***a? I play Mr. T (A-Team character ‘B.A. Baracus’) better than you! I pity the fool!’ I went in there [the audition] and I killed the Mr. T role on my screen test.”
