The Game is being more thoughtful this time around about the comments he made about Aftermath founder and his mentor Dr. Dre last year post-Super Bowl Halftime Show. Compton’s emcee joined Amazon Music’s show Bars & Nuggets for an exclusive interview where he says that he should have given the iconic producer more grace.
” I said some things that I meant. I’m not gon’ take it back – I ain’t no sucker. But having Dre do anything for your project, anything in your career, touch any part of anything you’re doing in life is such a blessing that I shall not ever s–t on that again. And I haven’t talked to Dre since. And it don’t really matter if we talk again in life. Like, I’m a standup Compton, L.A. ni–a and it is what it is. I said what I said, I’m not going back on it. It’s just that I should have actually gave him more grace for what he did do and that was actually mentoring me and doing things that nobody could have done for me in my career.” said The Game.
The 43-year-old Rapper also reflected on the infamous comment he made “Kanye has done more for me than Dr. Dre did” at Drinks Champ saying “When I was talking on there, I was speaking in terms of what Ye was doing right at that moment which was life-changing for me in that moment last year. And then I based it on Dre’s lack thereof because I took the business part personal and I should have left it business. But Dre is Dre, bro. We all know what Dr. Dre do.”
Later in the interview former G-Unit member The Game cleared up the rumors that he wrote 50 Cent’s song “What Up Gangsta” while praising 50’s storytelling, melodies, and singing but also stating “50 is not a btter writer than me – not a better lyricist – as far as lyricism he can’t f–k with me on that level”.
