So yesterday some guy was so hung up on what The Game has to say that he got all excited about an interview that Game did with allhiphop.com, and came on SOHH Left Coast babbling about how I should be writing about that. I just finished reading the interview, and at this point, Iâ€™m going to have to ask what all the fuss is about...
Besides the fact that whoever interviewed him either has no idea hot to follow up a question, or just didnâ€™t have the time, there really just isnâ€™t any new or interesting information in the interview.
The only thing that he said in the interview that is actually worth discussing is this:
â€œI was drunk on that song, so I donâ€™t remember or care what I was talking about that night. That was just that night, and it was documented and itâ€™ll forever be remembered â€˜cause itâ€™s on that album; itâ€™s just the way I was feeling that night and not the next morning and not the day before.â€
First of all, Iâ€™m gonna have to go ahead and call bullshit on that first statement. He obviously did care about what he was talking about on that track because not only did he leave the song on the final cut, but he named his fucking album after it. And the whole back story about him being hella drunk when he recorded it suspect as hell; he was apparently sober enough to write coherent verses and spit them without slurring like a motherfucker, yet he was so drunk that doesnâ€™t remember what he was talking about that night? Not even to mention that the little dialogue sections at the beginning and end of the song just make the whole story about this song seem even more fraudulent...
And then thereâ€™s the second half of that quote: â€œ...itâ€™s just the way I was feeling that night, and not the next morning and not the day before.â€ Wow, I swear Iâ€™ve heard this same quote from him before... oh wait, I did, back in October when he extended a peace treaty to 50, and then went on Power 106 a few days later and rescinded it, saying that it was only good for one day. Is there any consistency in this manâ€™s life?
At this point, thereâ€™s not really anything The Game could say that I would find surprising or controversial; heâ€™s kind of turned into the boy who cried wolf at this point. While Iâ€™d definitely like to hear a few more Game albums, at this point Iâ€™d almost just as soon take him up on that â€œIâ€™m gonna retire if I donâ€™t go platinumâ€ offer he made. Truth be told, I would really feel the Game about 73% more if somebody would just lock his ass in a basement when heâ€™s not recording music.
Whatever happened to the days when you could like an artist's music and actually respect them for how they conduct their lives on a day-to-day basis?
