Game has lashed out at Jay-Z several times in the past, most recently firing shots at Hov on his diss track “Uncle Otis.” But what fans might not know is that his attitude towards Jigga stems from an incident that soured his respect for him.
“I think that’s where my short-lived hatred came from. Yeah, man. I had it like that he was just a great dude. I grew up off of all Jay’s albums, and when I finally met him and he was just, I don’t know, he was overly cocky,” he says. “The way that he played fans – and I’m not saying it to say he’s the same person now, that was like seven years ago – this is my own personal experience, so it’s not to make anyone hate Jay-Z.”
While he has continued to pop off at Jay, Game insists that it’s all about business and has nothing to do with his actual attitude towards him. “It turned me left. Ever since then, I’ve been taking little potshots here and there, it’s nothing personal,” he explained.
