The Game is gearing up to release a brand new album in 2022 but before he does that, people are leaving him out a few “Best Rappers” lists and he’s not too happy about it.
On Monday (January 24), The Game took to Instagram with a post regarding a trio of lists that T.I., Funk Flex and Ebro Darden created that names their respective Top 50 rappers of all time. All three of the lists included artists such as JAY-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Drake, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar, but each one left The Game out.
The Compton rap star felt disrespected and proceeded to use the lists as motivation for his next album, allegedly titled Drillmatic.

“@oldmanebro @funkflex & @troubleman31…… I ain’t forgot about these lists…,” The Game wrote in the caption of his post. “#DRILLMATIC coming soon…. HURRICANE GAME LIVES y’all shoulda just threw my baby mamas in there too !!!!”
As far as Drillmatic is concerned, Hit-Boy is producing the entire album and G Herbo is calling it the “hardest album of 2022.” The Game did post a few pictures on his Instagram of him in the studio with Diddy, Migos’ Quavo and Hit-Boy, standing in a hallway with plaques on either side. He’s also been spotted in the studio with Kanye West, Pusha T, Moneybagg Yo, Curren$y, A$AP Rocky, will.i.am, London On Da Track, Dreezy and others.
The Game is off to a great start with this upcoming album. His recent collaboration with Kanye West and Hit-Boy titled “Eazy” debuted at No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100, earning the Compton rapper his highest-charting song in almost 15 years. The Game’s last single to chart higher was “My Life” featuring Lil Wayne in 2008, which appeared on his LAX album.
