West Coast rapper Jay Rock has shared his reaction to Game's "400 Bars" song and said he felt he may have been subliminally dissed on the 20-minute track.
Writing via Twitter, Rock explained his opinion about the record.
"I GET ON TWITTER N EVERYBODY HITTING ME SAYN @ihategame GETTING @ ME IN HIS FREESTYLE. SAME AS CUBE, N*GGAS NEED TO HAVE BALLS TO SAY NAMES," he wrote Thursday (April 15).

Game's record landed online early Thursday afternoon.
Over the wistful, soul-sampled Just Blaze beat that backed Jay Electronica's Booth-acclaimed Exhibit C, the Left Coast heavyweight empties out his rhyme book, spitting extensively about his cars, his mic skills, his beef with G-Unit, and pretty much everything else under the sun. Though its epic length may scare off the faint of heart, this freestyle succeeds in proving that Game has lyrics for days (and days, and days). (DJ Booth)
Earlier this year, Game said he was trying to place his "400 Bars" song on a DJ Drama mixtape.
"I got so many amazing records, I don't know if I should go hard to the streets or go radio," Game said about his upcoming R.E.D. Album. "But before the album there will be a mixtape with DJ Drama, Red Everything. Red Everything mixtape -- it's a bunch of tracks I did specifically for Drama. They're full songs mixed with a few freestyles. I'm trying to finish up '400 Bars' and get it on there. Ain't nobody piss me off that much. But even if that ain't on there, the mixtape is still gonna be crazy." (MTV)
