The Game is taking more verbal jabs at Eminem in his song “The Black Slim Shady.” The track, off his new album Drillmatic: Heart vs. Mind, sees the Documentary rapper pick apart Em’s life and career for nearly 10 minutes.
The song begins with Game mimicking Eminem’s flows before he spews bars the Detroit rapper’s way. He then makes mention of Em’s affiliations with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent, references his past substance abuse and, at one point, devalues Slim Shady’s impact on hip-hop.
“Twenty-three years, still ain’t penetratin’ the culture/You are not, top five, in mine, B.I.G or Pac eyes,” Game raps. “No André , no Nas, stop tellin’ white lies/Sniff a white line, this the right time/I Suge Knight Vanilla Ice, I’m not Mr. Nice Guy.”
The Compton native later hints that he kidnapped Em’s daughter, Hailie, and sympathizes with the rapper’s mother for the struggles she faced after he was born.
“Now I’m here, hope you ready, this is not mom’s spaghetti/This your dad at 22 when he ate lil’ Debbie,” Game spits. “He takes the cake/’Cause she was only fifteen, so how could one not sympathize with her havin’ you as a teen?/She had to lose herself in the moment, give up her dreams/Just to see her son out here lookin’ like a wigger in jeans.” nhby
“The Black Slim Shady” arrives after months after Game publicly stated he’s a better rapper than Eminem. He also expressed interest in battling the Detroit rapper in a Verzuz.
With his new song, it seems he’s hoping to get a reaction from Eminem. “Pick that pen up, don’t be lazy/Call up Dre and get that Dre beat/Jump off stage if shit get crazy,” Game raps in the outro.
