The Game Claims He's Better Than Eminem: "I used to think Eminem was better than me. He not."
During The Game's four-hour Drink Champs interview, he let multiple hot takes fly. According to him, Eminem would lose in a Verzuz Battle, especially since he thinks he's a better rapper than him.
Despite his respect for Em, he stated that he could simply beat him: "Eminem, Eminem is Eminem. I like Eminem, he’s one of the f*cking good emcees, great emcees. I used to think Eminem was better than me. He not. He not. He’s not. Ay, challenge it. It's not drama!... Swizz [Beatz] and Timbaland know that it’s bigger than Verzuz. I’m not saying I want smoke with Eminem, I’m saying I want smoke with Eminem, him, and him, whoever."
During his promotion on said episode, The Game stuck by his opinion, saying that the only way to resolve the issue would be in the booth: "Nah. Is Eminem better than me? Nah he's not, bro. I think the best way to see if he is or if I am is, sh*t n***a, let's rap about it. Let's get up, let's get in the studio, let's rap about it. Let's do something, let's put something out, let's see, cause that's what this sh*t is. Let's rap."
The Game continued to say he rarely reaches the full extent of his abilities, but when he does, he is nearly untouchable as a rapper.: "For me, I never really gave n****s the just of who I am lyrically. I just be doing this sh*t because I'm skilled enough to do it. As far as some real lyricism, some real hip-hop, real get in the studio and take the gloves off and really get it in, y'all n****s be having me f**ked up. I ain't even gonna lie. Y'all be having me all the way f**ked up. Who? What rapper is better than me? Even if a rapper was better than me, why the f**k would I ever say another man is better than me in anything in life? I'm always striving to be the best human I can possibly be. The best rapper, the best father, the best friend."
According to his Instagram caption, The Game said this was his year, since he expects to release a new album in the coming months.: "It’s MY YEAR !!!! @drinkchamps interview is out now & the #3 trending on YOUTUBE. Go check it out… & while you out, go tell ya favorite rapper I’m BETTER !!!"
