The Game on Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ verse: ‘I’ve been calling out names since 2003’
Also hailing from the West Coast, Game, real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor, thinks the 'Swimming Pools' star, who recently performed at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, is “getting everything he deserves.”
“He’s a great talent and I’ve watched him from the early stages of his career.
“He’s getting all the credit he deserves and I'm happy for him.”
Going on to talk about the controversy surrounding Kendrick’s ‘Control’ verse, Game believes the competitiveness from rap wasn’t missing like people thought – they just didn’t know where to look for it.
“It hasn’t been missing since I’ve been in existence,” he added. “I think I’ve been pretty competitive as far as controversy and hip hop verses go.
“I’ve been calling out names since 2003.”
As for his plans for the rest of the year, Game will return home following his Jesus Piece Australian Tour to “finish [his] mixtape and get it out for a late October release.”
“I'm going to continue working on the new album as well. I think I’ve got a good concept for this album and hopefully it’s able to top every record that I’ve ever put out.”
Having worked with the likes of Kanye West, 2 Chainz and Chris Brown on his last music release, Game revealed that he’s going to “try and not have any features on the next album.”
“We’ll see how we go, but so far I haven’t recorded with anyone except Ed Sheeran.
“Ed is funny. He’s so talented. He plays that guitar like nobody else and he’s got a dope voice.”
As for Ed's buddy Miley Cyrus and her new rap image? “I encourage Miley to keep twerk, twerk, twerking ‘til there’s no more twerking to be done.
“I would definitely twerk with her.”
The Game will perform his final show on the Jesus Piece Australian Tour this Tuesday, 10th September at Espy, Melbourne.
