Game Vs. Rick Ross

The Game and Rick Ross have plenty of similarities. They both are heavily inked up with tats of famous dead people – Game has Michael Jackson, Ross has Richard Pryor – and they both survived well-documented beefs with 50 Cent. More than anything, though, they’re known for name-dropping. The Game has name-dropped everyone from Kurt Cobain to O.J. Simpson, Elvis Presley and Charles Bronson since entering the scene. He may have Ross beat, but Rozay is gunning for the name-dropping throne, having dropped names like 2pac, Malcolm X, Fran Tarkenton, MC Hammer, Big Meech and Bo Jackson. Here, XXL opens up each MC’s files and makes the comparison.
