The Game has had many experiences during the course of his music career. As he prepares to drop his new album, Drillmatic, he recalled a time when he lost a rap battle to Ye.
During an interview with All The Smoke, Game revealed how he and West began freestyling outside of a California party. “So yeah, me and Ye we end up freestyling outside of [the party] … my shit was all gangsta, but Ye had the punchlines and he had the women; so he beat me that night,” Game told hosts Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson. “So ever since then me and Ye we’ve been locked in.”
Game went on to explain that West was constantly at his side on every album after that, helping him in every way he could. He also stated that Ye has done considerably more to further his career than Dr. Dre ever did.
“That been my brother throughout Hip Hop. Ye did more for me in my career in the last two weeks than Dre did my whole career. One thing Dre did was sign me, but Dre signed the hottest n***** in Compton. It didn’t matter who was gonna sign me I was gonna be the next n*****,” Game shared.
Game added, “So as far as Dre and Jimmy Iovine signing me to Aftermath and Interscope they also did themselves a favor cause they had picked up where 2Pac left off in signing me.”
After several delays, The Game announced on Friday, July 15th, that his next album Drillmatic: Heart vs. Mind would be released on August 12. Also, a few months back Kanye collaborated with The Game for a hit single, “Eazy.” The song made big waves in the rap scene and the duo has once again joined forces.
