The Game has released a scathing Eminem diss track called “The Black Slim Shady”.
Taken from the Compton rapper’s new album, Drillmatic: Heart Vs. The Mind, which is out in the U.S. tomorrow (August 12) but already available in the UK, the over 10-minute tongue lashing begins with a skit centered around an Uber driver who’s been tasked with driving Game to a mysterious location in Detroit, although it’s “somewhere near 8 Mile.”
Game later discovers the driver is the brother of Stan, the fictional die-hard Eminem fan who dies at the end of the Detroit rapper’s 2000 hit “Stan.”
“Hey yo, I really fuck with that Starter cap; that shit hard as fuck,” Game says, to which the driver responds: “Crazy story behind it. My brother Stan, rest in peace, he gave me this hat 22 years ago. It’s my favorite.”
Game asks to see the hat, which he realizes is autographed by Eminem. The driver goes on: “He used to be like this rap god, but that’s when I was little. I don’t really like his new stuff.”
Throughout the song, Game continues to take jabs at nearly everything in Eminem’s life — from his ex-wife Kim Mathers and daughter Hailie to his white skin and addiction struggles.
“Ask Dre, all I got is my word, my dick and my MAC-10,” he spits. “One thing you can never have is my muthafuckin’ Black, skin/ This ain’t no suit that I wore, this ain’t a mansion to hang a plaque, this ain’t no stupid award.”
From there, Game goes into the same cadence as Eminem’s Oscar-winning hit “Lose Yourself” with: “So oh, he goes platinum and oh, I’m on the ‘Math with him/ He got all the Blackest friends, he wants to be African, me/ Left for dead on the Doctor’s Advocate/ Dre never executive produced it, I just imagined it.”
Game later claims Big Sean is the biggest rapper in Detroit and is adamant he’d rather listen to “Snitch9ne” than Slim Shady any day of the week.
