Game was sitting down for an interview with Drink Champs when the conversation moved towards the recent Super Bowl halftime show, specifically Eminem's involvement, which led to the Game saying:
"Eminem is Eminem," Game said. "I like Eminem, he’s one of the f***ing good MCs, great MCs. He raps fast. He do all that s**t...I used to think Eminem was better than me. He not. He not. He’s not. Aye, challenge it.”
That then prompted interview host N.O.R.E to say that the Game wouldn't want to participate in a Verzuz battle with Em, to which he replied:
"Yes, I do. What do you mean? Yea, I do. The f**k you mean? What you trying to say? Let's just say what you trying to say. I don't want no fade with the White man?"
Game added, "Swizz [Beatz] and Timbaland know that it’s bigger than Verzuz. I’m not saying I want smoke with Eminem, I’m saying I want smoke with Eminem, him, and him, whoever. Bro, 'cause n***as know."
However fans were quick to point out that this is a sharp change in attitude by the Game, who has gone on record before saying that he would never go after Eminem out of respect for his abilities in a recently resurfaced video:
