Royce Da 5′9″ Reacts to The Game Claiming He's a Better Rapper Than Eminem
Royce da 5'9" weighed in after the Game called himself a better rapper than Eminem.
During the Game's appearance on Drink Champs, he said he used to think Eminem "was better" than he was, but now he thinks otherwise. “Is Eminem better than me? Nah, he not, bro," he said in a clip shared on Instagram.
Royce calls Game "a legend," but he said the Compton rapper still has a lot to prove if he wants to "outrap" Em.
On an Instagram Live stream with producer Mike Zombie, who has also been in the studio with Game, Royce said, “I seen it, whenever anybody mention Em’s name they make it a headline. … But I feel like, every MC should feel like that.”
Royce didn't downplay Game's talent as a rapper, but he did suggest it's not easy to face-off against Em on a song, which he's done on multiple occasions, including on their joint album.
“Game is a monster,” he said. “He’ll just have his hands full. Em is a hard dude to out-rap. Nine times out of 10, you’ll be sending him your verse or when he get your verse...he gonna aim to out-rap you. He probably ain’t get out-rapped ever, that competitive edge is always there.”
While Royce is close to Eminem, he admitted he has to listen to Game's new album when it comes out.
