In the 2000s, Compton rapper The Game worked alongside G-Unit and FAtermath Entertainment to produce his 2005 album The Documentary. Executively produced by Dr Dre, the album contained some hits such as ‘Hate It or Love It’ and more. However, in a Drink Champs interview, the emcee stated that Kanye had done more for him concerning his career than Dr Dre.
Now the Drillmatic musician has decided to backtrack and retract his previous comments. In a recent appearance on Amazon Music’s Bars and Nuggets podcast, The Game (real name (Jayceon Taylor) attributed his outburst to intoxication.
Speaking about his Drink Champs interview, Taylor explained, “So basically, I was hollering at N.O.R.E. and them a little inebriated, and I said some things that I meant. I’m not gon’ take it back. I ain’t no sucker! But having Dre do anything for your project, anything in your career, touch any part of anything you’re doing in life is such a blessing that I shall not ever s**t on that again.”
The rapper candidly disclosed that, since his comments, he and Dre have not spoken and that he understands his wrongdoing, revealing, “I haven’t talked to Dre since. And it don’t really matter if we talk again in life.”
He continued, “Like, I’m a standup Compton, LA n*gga, and it is what it is. I said what I said, I’m not going back on it. It’s just that I should have actually gave him more grace for what he did do, and that was actually mentoring me and doing things that nobody could have done for me in my career.”
In an attempt to explain his comments, the musician stated that he was talking about what Ye was doing for him at that moment in 2015. He continued, “When I was talking on there, I was speaking in terms of what Ye was doing right at that moment which was life-changing for me in that moment.”
Taylor then concluded by showing his love for Dre stating, “I based it on Dre’s lack thereof because I took the business part personal and I should have left it business. But Dre is Dre, bro. We all know what Dr Dre do.”
