In an interview with DJ VLAD, The Game reminisces about the awe-inspiring experience of working with Eminem, expressing gratitude and respect. Yet, a bitter pill follows as he recounts being snubbed by Dr. Dre for the Super Bowl halftime show, confessing hurt but maintaining love and admiration.

"“Throwing shots at Eminem and beefing with Eminem, it was just me being upset with Dr. Dre,” The Game admitted to DJ Vlad. “Dr. Dre can’t out-rap me, so I just went at Em, just because that’s just how I get sometimes.

But it’s always competitive. It ain’t like I’m gonna see Em and be like, ‘What’s up now?!’ It’s Em, you know what I’m saying? And Em took his shots on a record that dropped, and yo, Em is a funny guy.”"
