Recently speaking with HipHopDX Senior Features Writer Ural Garrett, Jidenna talked about the West Coast headliner baring his likeness.
“The Game looked clean as hell,” he said via a segment of today’s (November 9) DX Daily. “I saw the IG and I was like, I actually thought it was myself. I was dressed as the Grinch so that’s definitely not me. First of all, I respect The Game. He’s trail-blazed for artists like myself. I appreciate him having living in L.A. myself and knowing what he stands for and what he stood for. I really like all his new work by the way. It was cool. I actually shouted him out today on the show.”
Jidenna also explained how being a gangster and a gentlemen go hand-in-hand in his world.
“It was good to see a gangsta dressed as a gentlemen because in the history, the last 100 years, those two words, gangster and gentleman, were interchangeable,” he explained.
