The Game challenged Eminem to 'Verzuz' because 50 Cent "can't rap"

The Game has claimed that he challenged Eminem to a ‘Verzuz’ battle because 50 Cent “can’t rap”.

Previously, during his appearance on the Drink Champs podcast, The Game certainly ruffled feathers when he claimed he was a better rapper than Eminem. The rapper even said Shady would be his dream opponent for ‘Verzuz’.

“I like Eminem, he’s one of the fucking good MCs, great MCs. I used to think Eminem was better than me,” he admitted. The rapper was then asked if he feels that way, to which he replied: “He not. He not. He’s not. Challenge it.”

Now, The Game has explained why he decided to go for Eminem and said it’s because he doesn’t think his old foe 50 Cent is worthy of his time.

“You want to know why [I challenged Eminem to a Verzuz battle]? Because 50 can’t rap!” he explained on UPROXX‘s new series Fresh Pairs, hosted by Just Blaze and Katty Customs. “And so I gotta go a level up and challenge the better rapper.”

Even though he doesn’t rate Fiddy as a rapper, he did compliment him on his success in the film industry. “It’s no 2005, 2006 animosity toward 50,” he continued. “I watch Power, I watch the Tommy one, I watch the one with Isaac Wright on primetime television. I watch 50’s shows, I’m a fan of those shows. BMF is great!

“But I’m a rapper, he’s a rapper and I am the better rapper. I’m not the better TV producer — I’m giving him his dead flowers while he can still smell them. But when it comes to rap, he can’t out-rap me. Your buddy can rap, though!”
