In a new big interview on Amazon Music, The Game looks back at his offensive remarks about Dr. Dre and tries to give him props while maintaining that he really meant that Kanye did more for him than Dre. Also, watch The Game rewriting the G-Unit history putting himself above all other members.

All these tidbits came up very early in the interview and gave the live audience in the studio many opportunities to laugh out loud:

So basically I was hollering at N.O.R.E., a little inebriated, and I said some things that I meant. I’m not gonna 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 shit on that again. And I haven’t talked to Dre since. It don’t really matter if we talk again in life. Like, I’m a standup Compton, L.A. 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 actually did do and that was actually mentoring me and do things that nobody else could have done for me in my career. 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 last year. And then 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.

What Kanye did is that he put The Game on his track “Eazy” and therefore gave a former G-Unit rapper his highest charting song since 2006. Not the highest charting ever. The Game’s biggest hits (“How We Do” (No.4) and “Hate It Or Love It” (No.9)) were both recorded with 50 Cent. “Eazy” peaked at No.49, and didn’t do so because of The Game. It was a fleeting moment of an echo of success, and now the Game reevaluates his comments, trying to look cool at the same time.

Dre found Eminem and let him flourish to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Eminem found Fifty and brought him to Dre and let that nigga go ten times platinum and be the greatest nigga that he could be. When it came to G-Unit, I felt like Fifty was trying to suppress us and keep us like soldiers when I was never a soldier. I didn’t put myself in the group. I didn’t ask to be in a group. I’m thankful for the opportunity. G-Unit were me and Fifty, not so Banks, Buck, or Yayo. But me and Fifty together was in the studio and recording, you know what that was. Then Jimmy Iovine would always say some shit like, “Why’d you guys have to go and break up The Beatles, the Black Beatles?” At 24-25 years old I wasn’t thinking about that.

I was just thinking I wanted that nigga to die. Because what he was trying to do to me, we had just did to Murder Inc. So I put two and two together. I was like, “I’m not about to get Ja Rule. No smoke to Ja, because Ja was Drake before Drake. He had songs on the radio, he was singing, and then Fifty was shitting on Ja. At that time, we were just young. I hollered at Fifty in LA one time in the club. We were on my side and we exchanged few words, nothing violent or anything like that. We both couldn’t figure out where the young us went wrong.

And then Fifty go off because Fifty is a real dickhead. Nah, for real. He get back to New York, a little time passed and for some reason he want to bring me up and say this or that. You know Fifty, he’s a troll. At the end of the day, the older Fifty and Fifty now, the one that gave us “Power” and “For Life”, and all the good shows and all that, he’s like a teddy bear. He’a cool, and we’re good. Ain’t no drama. I ain’t gonna see Fifty and whoop his ass at 40 years old. He’s got a star on Hollywood [Walk of Fame]. I ain’t gonna blood walk on it or nothing like that. That’s not bad idea [laughs]. But we ain’t trying to go viral for that. We were just young and disconnected. A lot of money involved. A lot of ego and just youth. Biggie and Pac didn’t make out of that. They didn’t get to have another sit down. They both died in that. Me and Fifty had shootouts and it could have ended the same way but by the grace of god he’s alive and I’m alive. And we are here today. Like I said, we were young, egos, and too much money to be passing around.

There was no question about The Game’s flopped Eminem diss “The Black Slim Shady”. Why? Nobody interested in it anymore or The Game forbade to even touch that sore topic?
