West Coast rapper Game knows he’s no rap game rookie. The hip-hop veteran has reacted to one-time rival Joe Budden speaking highly about his career.

This weekend, the West Coast native co-signed Joe’s endless co-signs off his weekday “Everyday Struggle” show.

“I beefed with Game in ’04,” Joe says in the broadcast. “The longevity is there for him. The hits are there. I can argue the classic album is there. The classic moments are there and he’s done it by himself – after G-Unit. He’s the only one to successfully beef with G-Unit – well, outside of Rick Ross – he’s the only one to successfully beef with 50 [Cent]. He’s the only one, if we look at G-Unit and all they’ve accomplished on. I’m the biggest G-Unit fan ever – if we look at all they’ve accomplished and then we look at Game, I think it’s hard to argue that he’s the most underrated. It’s hard to argue. He’s overcome too much. He’s accomplished too much. He’s done the same thing I did. He’s won on major labels, he’s won independently. He got the bag from eOne.”

Coincidentally, Game’s manager Wack 100 went off on Joe this week for digging into rap newcomer Lil Yachty‘s record deal.

“All these n*ggas wanna know what the next motherf*cker’s doing and they ain’t doing nothing. What you doing n*gga? N*gga gotta drive with a 100 songs on it playing question the other rapper. N*gga here go a question for you, where your deal at? Sh*t. F*ck outta here, n*gga. And then the n*gga tried to get all up in our business mentioning my VP – our business at eOne. N*gga, don’t mention our business. Matter of fact, I’m gonna keep it real with you Joe Budden. I’m the motherf*cking reason why your situation ain’t get no attention, n*gga. Because I went into that motherf*cker and told them, ‘Look. I don’t give a f*ck – who project you on, Joe Budden? Eh listen, y’all want this Game project up in here, cease that sh*t. I need that whole team over there on this Game sh*t. I need the whole building on this Game sh*t.’ N*ggas wanna talk about dropping the ball. Drop the ball on where?”


Recently, Game gave his own critical review of rap star Kendrick Lamar‘s DAMN. album.
