The Game is certainly one of the most established rappers in the world of hip-hop. However, some fans think that his musical output may have dropped a bit in recent years. The rapper definitely thinks the opposite about things.
The Compton native recently appeared in an interview on the No Jumper podcast, where he spoke about putting his family and well-being before money. He explained that staying the course could have improved him financially, but he felt that other things were more important.
“I choose to be real and to be authentic with my fans and my family over financial status ’cause I mean if I really just said f*ck everybody and really just went for the money, I mean I’m a superstar I would be a billionaire too. You know Biggie said it best a long time ago, ‘Mo Money Mo Problems.’”
The host of the podcast, Adam22, then expressed his wonder that the happier the musicians are in their lives outside of music, the more followers seem to think that they have fallen off the wagon. The Game claimed that it doesn’t upset him in the slightest because he is aware that those who wish they could be him will make those remarks.
“That shit don’t never f*ck with me ’cause you got to understand where it’s coming from. You got somebody that’s at the bottom of their grandparent’s house in the comments saying you fell off. Like, who the f*ck are you to be able to hate on my music, hate on me or hate on my career?
You gotta be zoomed the f*ck in, and you gotta be listening, so like everybody, you could do what you want on my page and on my socials. I don’t really give a f*ck. It’s thug life.”
The Game obviously believes in himself and doesn’t think he has ever lost his way, especially with the remarks he has made in the past about himself. He claimed that his rap abilities are at an expert level, even stating that he is a better rapper than Eminem. However, not everyone agrees with the “How We Do” rapper.
