The Game recently discussed his stance on fans' attraction to rap beefs and how he chooses which battles he will pursue.
Claiming he focuses on the more popular rap beefs, Game also described his dominance in physical confrontations with other emcees.
"I don't give a f*ck about that man," Game said about fans taking sides in his rap beefs. "Any beef that's gonna be a beef of the time the people are gonna talk about, those are the beefs I get involved in. I don't got time for the petty sh*t 'cause when I see those rappers I just knock them the f*ck out. And we make sure it's on camera so everybody can see how b*tch-made they is and I ain't gonna say no names. Try to challenge me, I'm number one. I'm one of the only rappers in the world that ain't been tested like that, never had a chain snatched...Anybody step to anybody in the Black Wall Street straight up gotta motherf*cking answer to that."

Recently calling out Jay-Z, Game spoke on his past rap battle victories in a July interview.
"My fans expect me to respond and I ain't lost a rap beef to date," Game said in an interview last week. "He just really needs to sit his old a** down somewhere and let the new n*ggas make money...He knows if he goes to war with me, it's gonna be never-ending. From Joe Budden to Memphis Bleek to Ras Kas to Yukmouth to G-Unit as a staff, record label and group, I'm a one-man army man. I will tear you down. They will stop wearing Roc-A-Wear clothing."

He also called out G-Unit's 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo at a concert last month in Amsterdam.
"G-Unot!," Game shouted to a crowd at his concert. "G-Unit still don't get no love, f*ck them. F*ck 50. F*ck Banks. F*ck Yayo. There's only three n*ggas left, when I'm done, it's gonna be nobody. GGG GGG GGG-Unot!!! GGG-Unot! GGGG-Unot! GGG-GGG-GGGG-Unot! F*ck G-Unit!" (Forbez DVD)
Prior to his on-stage taunts, Game apologized to the Unit in an interview and said his past disses were due to his youth.
"Jimmy [Iovine] always says, 'Man, I told you guys not to break up the Beatles,'" Game said in an interview this summer. "He says he told John Lennon the same thing a long time ago. But I was young, man. I was dumb. I did a lot of dumb things. I felt me and 50 clashed. I'm not gonna diss 50. I'm not gonna go back on the plane. He had his side, I had my side. I did what I felt was necessary for me and my career to have longevity and survive in hip-hop and music to be around when I'm Quincy Jones' age -- not just be Quincy Jones' age, but be a Quincy Jones. Now, four albums in, I can honestly say from Banks to Young Buck to [Dr.] Dre to Yayo to whoever, if it would have kept going, endless paper. Millions of albums sold --- because we were great together." (MTV)
