The Game Disses Eminem On New Track “The Black Slim Shady”

On new album Drillmatic: Heart Vs. Mind, The Game calls out rival Eminem on 10-minute track “The Black Slim Shady.”

The Game is crowning himself “The Black Slim Shady” on a new diss track aimed at Eminem. On Friday (August 12), the rapper released his tenth album Drillmatic: Heart Vs. Mind, featuring the 10-minute track “The Black Slim Shady” geared toward the self-proclaimed “Rap God.”

Produced by Hit-Boy, Big Duke and Brian King Joseph, Game shoots pointed bars at the new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, even alleging that he was once “pretendin’ to be the white Royce da 5’9.”

Also on “The Black Slim Shady,” the rapper references Em’s former Detroit group D-12, his ex-wife Kim, his mother, his manager Paul Rosenberg, and even goes as far as pretending to have Em’s 26-year-old daughter Hallie Jade kidnapped.

Game has been teasing the song since April, appearing on UPROXX show Fresh Pair to challenge Eminem to a battle. The rapper said that his interest in battling Em was prompted by his long-running beef with former G-Unit member 50 Cent.

“Nobody really takes shots at Eminem off this preconceived notion that he’s better than everybody. Well I want action, and I want it today,” Game said at the time.

“If you’re a ‘rap god,’ control me. Put me down. Put me in my place. Let me know,” he added. “Because if he out-raps me, I’m gonna feel like s***. He got it. I’m talkin’ about Hov and Nas, I’m talkin’ about ‘Takeover’ and ‘Ether.’ Because one of them has to feel like they one. I’m just sayin’ let’s have our moment, or I’m gonna have it by myself.”

Drillmatic: Heart Vs. Mind features Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih, 2 Chainz, Pusha T, YG, A$AP Rocky, Ice-T, Cam’ron, Blueface, Chris Brown, Chlöe and Fivio Foreign.
