The Game is unquestionably one of hip-hop’s most well-known rappers. He is also outspoken about his opinions of others. The Game recently declared that NBA YoungBoy will be this generation’s 2Pac.

The Game believes NBA YoungBoy will be the current generation’s 2Pac when everything is said and done. During a recent interview with Montreality, the Compton rapper explained his reasons, using the Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James discussion to back up his point. “NBA YoungBoy will be 2Pac of this generation,” he said.

Sometimes when you see an 18-year-old say, ‘NBA YoungBoy is better than 2Pac,’ it’s not because he actually is or 2Pac is better than NBA YoungBoy. It’s just the Michael Jordan/Kobe Bryant/LeBron thing, it’s just different eras of greatness.

You should just appreciate them now, because an 18-year-old cannot appreciate or relate to 2Pac because they weren’t even alive. 2Pac has been dead for 26 years, so an 18-year-old kid wasn’t even born for another six years after he died.

So why would you expect him to relate to 2Pac over NBA YoungBoy? Somebody who is just a few years older than him who he listens to every day who’s probably living the same type of lifestyle that he’s living.

The Game went on to pay tribute to the rappers that came before him and paved the road for today’s music. “I just appreciate every single genre of music at every single time,” he said.

When Public Enemy was doing ‘Fight the Power’ or N.W.A was saying ‘F*ck the Police,’ I appreciated that. When Sugarhill Gang put out their first record and then Hip Hop was made in those moments, and the Melle Mels and all the way up to the Erick Sermons and the Method Mans and the Redmans and the Wu-Tangs and the Bone Thugs and everybody.

The LOX, f*cking Biggie and Pac, and just Nas and Hov, and everybody. Why can’t we just appreciate everybody and everything in music and be a collective of f*cking just dope s*it?

NBA YoungBoy featured on The Game’s new album Drillmatic: Heart vs. Mind on the song “OPP.” However, owing to his feature pricing, it was reportedly removed. Wack 100, Game’s manager, stated YoungBoy was charging them $150,000 instead of $300,000, but it wasn’t low enough for the album budget.

The Game clearly believes in himself and those he is complimenting. One fact he will never accept is that Eminem is a better rapper than him. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
