The Game Says He’s Better Than Eminem At Rap
The Game maintains that he is a greater rap artist than Eminem. The rapper told co-hosts Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson during his interview with the All the Smoke podcast. The podcast debuted on YouTube on Friday (May 27), that despite Eminem’s superior poetic skills, he could still beat him in a rap battle.
“When I say that I want to rap battle with Eminem, or Eminem is not the greatest rapper, or I’m better than him…I’m supposed to think that I’m better than every single rapper,” At the 58-minute mark, the rapper from Compton, California, explains.
Slim Shady, according to The Game, received a lot of help from Dr. Dre and Interscope Records, which he credits with catapulting him to MC superstardom.
“[I’m] not saying that [Eminem] can’t rap, the skillset is there. I’m just a better rapper,” he said. “I just haven’t been given the light that he’s been given. They didn’t put the money behind me.”
The Game On His Former Label And Eminem
The Game is referring to his former labels Aftermath and Interscope Records when he mentions “them.” The Documentary artist believes that the Interscope “machine” turned Eminem become a brilliant rapper. That is why he’s currently receiving so many plaudits. The Game feels that if Interscope gave him the same type of financial and marketing support as Em, he would be a fantastic MC as well.
The Game admitted that he understands that bragging about being a better rapper than Eminem will make headlines, but he stands by his words. “[Eminem is] a great lyricist, he’s just not better than me and if he is better than me I need to see it,” he stated.
