American rapper Jayceon Terrell Taylor, or The Game, recently released his new studio album, Drillmatic, with over 30 songs and also featuring a number of different singers. The album has gained a lot of fame over the short period in which it was released due to a few reasons such as the fact that big-name singers featured in a few songs such as Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Pusha-T, Roddy Ricch, Fivio Foreign, etc. have boosted the popularity of Drillmatic. One other reason behind his new album becoming one of the most talked about topics in media is due to a specific song in his 30-track album named ‘Black Slim Shady’ which is a 10-minute diss track dedicated to Marshall Bruce Mathers III or as many have come to know him as the legendary rapper, Eminem.

The Game claimed that he wrote ‘What Up Gangsta’

Wack 100, who is a manager of popular rappers such as Blueface, Ray J, and The Game recently claimed that the ‘Black Slim Shady’ rapper was involved in making one of 50 Cent’s songs, the introductory song from the rapper’s own debut album, ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’’. Wack 100 made this admission while speaking with The Game on Clubhouse after The Game fiercely denied 50 Cent’s claims that he had written songs for The Documentary.

Arguably, one of the most controversial tracks in The Game’s latest album has to be ‘Black Slim Shady’. As the rapper targets everything Eminem is known for to date, the song in question targets Eminem’s mother, father, daughter, race, and much more. No matter how anyone looks at it, The Game has done thorough research on the legendary rapper, even going as far as to tease him by commenting on his daughter’s Facebook posts prior to the release of his album to spark more controversy.

After the release of The Game’s album, Drillmatic, 50 Cent attended a talk show with The Breakfast Club. It is an American radio talk show hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God. When asked about the songs that 50 Cent helped write for The Game’s songs in 2004 which he included in his project known as The Documentary, the rapper also brings up the claim of The Game being involved in writing his song ‘What Up Gangsta‘ and states:

“[The Game] said he wrote ‘What Up Gangsta.’ I’m like, ‘C’mon on, bro. You wasn’t even around when we did that. That was before you even came into the picture,’” Fif said. “… We didn’t even know who he was until after. There’s a point when you [reach] desperation and you’ll say anything.”

Clearly, the claim seems to have been made for the purpose of attracting more media around the rapper, however, the attempt to take credit for a song that one did not write seems to be a cheap shot at gaining popularity, especially in the music industry.
