The Games thanks Jay-Z for clearing seven samples he needs for his upcoming album “Drillmatic.” The release date was pushed back from June 17th to July 1st before being delayed again. Although there isn’t a new set date for “Drillmatic,” maybe with the Game getting some of the samples cleared, he might be able to move forward with releasing the album.
“S/O to S. Dot for clearing all seven samples on #Drillmatic,” Game wrote. “3 more sample clearances & the AOTY belongs to me a & hit-boy.”
The Game took a shot at Jay-Z a few years ago and admitted on record that he wished he could reverse his bars about Jay-Z.
“I think that’s where my short-lived hatred came from,” he said. “I had it like that he was just a great dude. I grew up off of all Jay’s albums, and when I finally met him, and he was just, I don’t know, he was overly cocky…. The way that he played fans, and I’m not saying it to say he’s the same person now, that was like seven years ago – this is my own personal experience, so it’s not to make anyone hate Jay-Z.”
