In a recent interview with DJ Vlad, The Game shed light on the real reason behind his recent jabs at Eminem, admitting that his diss track, “The Black Slim Shady,” was fueled by his frustration with Dr. Dre.
While The Game has a history of taking shots at fellow artists, this revelation adds a new layer to his ongoing beef with Eminem.
During the conversation, The Game disclosed that the source of his animosity towards Eminem was rooted in his discontent with Dr. Dre. According to The Game, he chose to target Eminem on “The Black Slim Shady” because of his belief that Dr. Dre couldn’t out-rap him.
The Compton rapper explained that his decision to engage in a feud with Eminem was a manifestation of his occasional emotional outbursts.
“It’s always competitive,” The Game clarified. “It ain’t like I’m gonna see Em and be like, ‘What’s up now?!’ It’s Em, you know what I’m saying? And Em took his shots on a record that dropped, and yo, Em is a funny guy.”
The admission adds a nuanced perspective to the ongoing rivalry between The Game and Eminem, emphasizing the competitive nature of the music industry rather than personal animosity.
Despite the verbal sparring, The Game acknowledged the humor in Eminem’s responses and highlighted the underlying camaraderie within the hip-hop community.
