If it’s one thing we know about the rapper The Game, he is always saying something that shakes up the innanet! The Compton native recently shared his opinion of his favorite rappers and compared them to some of the greats. In a recent interview with Montreality, he said Lil Baby & Lil Durk would be this generation’s Jay-Z & Nas. “Rap culture has shifted the world,” he explained. Naming off Vince Staples, Don Toliver, and Joey Bad A*s, things got serious when he named Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. He proclaimed that they are pretty much the Nas and Jay-Z of their generation because they started ten years ago.
“I enjoy Future and Young Thug because they would be the Jay-Z and sort of the Nas of that generation of music from the ATL. But then I love Lil Baby and Lil Durk because they would be the Jay-Z and Nas of this generation,” Game said. The ‘Drillmatic’ rapper didn’t stop there. He touched on NBA YoungBoy, saying he will be the 2Pac of this generation.”
“Sometimes when you see an 18-year-old say, ‘NBA YoungBoy is better than 2pac, it’s not because he actually is or 2Pac is better than NBA YoungBoy. It’s just the Michael Jordan/Kobe Bryant/LeBron thing. It’s just different eras of greatness,” he explained.
Now, anytime The Game says something people may deem controversial, he receives backlash. Over 4,000 Roommates weighed in. One commented, “No one with LIL in their name isn’t prolific enough to be anything in the rap game.” Another wrote, “Why can’t we let everybody be who they were/are for their own generation?”
The Game stepped in and responded to the backlash. He commented, “Ya’ll be so angry at someone else’s opinion lol….. you gone be aite.”
