DJ Green Lantern recently shared his opinions on The Game's rap war against Jay-Z and said the West Coast emcee may be justified for his attack on a hip-hop mogul.
In addition to speaking on the disses, Lantern also said if the rap battle developed, it would likely remain on wax.
"When you say somebody's name, be prepared for anything to happen," Lantern said in an interview. "So Jay was probably like 'Whatever,' felt like saying his name and Game was like, 'He said my name, I'm going in.' So it is what it is. I'm not surprised at all by any of it. I'm quietly entertained on the sideline, that's pretty much it. I heard [the diss]. Game goes hard and that's all, you know, Game goes hard like intensly hard. But that guy Jay-Z, if he puts his mind to you, it's gonna be something. It'll be interesting to see how that's gonna play out. I scratched my head on some Amber Rose line, Kanye's girl, the line in the record, but, that's Game, man. Game is a savage, an animal. He's just gonna spray the whole parking lot...It is what it is, these are two grown men that make way more than me so big up to both of them, put your gloves on and just keep it in the ring..I don't think none of that is violence at all. But you never know." (Vlad TV)
Tony Yayo recently said Game was wrong for going after Jay.
"Stupid move," Yayo said a couple of days ago in Astoria, Queens. "It's dumb. When I see guys like Jay-Z, 50 [Cent] and Diddy, there's no need for me [to beef with them]. They got too much money. Dudes got sniper money. You gotta chill. I chill. You gotta leave them kinda dudes alone. That's how I look at it. I don't know how other rappers look at it. These guys is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. 50, Eminem, Dre, Diddy -- waste of time, man." (MTV)
Game's hard-hitting "I'm So Wavy" landed online last week.
"N*ggas pop tags, I pop the 4-5," Game raps. "N*ggas got swag, I got the tech nine...Yeah, you got cheese and I kill rats/Translation, I still trap/Now do something with that, or respond to this/And with those big a** lips, you got my name in your mouth I hope it taste like uhhh, no homo, one more time/uhhh, that's your promo/And I been hard to the core since I went solo/Only man on my horse like my all black polo...Got the camel in a choke hold/Tryin' to son me, I'm not from N-Y-C/You can't even have a child by your Destiny/And I ain't mean to take a shot at B, I blacked out like you did Free...Too hardcore to be a Jay-Z/Rock more red than Weezy, Baby...And this ain't a diss, I was just out in L.A. with Dra[ke], b*tch...That's Ye's brother so I'ma give him some advice, get rid of Amber Rose/I know how she get down, I was at Diddy's after party/Sippin' on the Cris, she was whispering to Chris, Brown/Then Chris turned his head like 'No'/Then 'Gold Digger' came on, I pointed out like 'H*e'/And this ain't about her, this about Hov/I'm about to drop down the Roc and take it to the stove." ("I'm So Wavy")
Game later said the record was something he quickly put together.
"We dropped 'I'm So Wavy' yesterday," Game said in his latest vlog. "That wasn't no real diss or nothing, that was just like pop shots, messing around in the studio. Dropped a little something for the streets." (The Game Vlog)
