Game Says “Uncle Otis” Is “Just Fun,” Not A Jay-Z Dis

Game already knows that everyone is gonna say he dissed Jay-Z on “Uncle Otis.” But the Compton MC has a different take on things, of course. According to him, if two rappers rock on a track then one has to best the other the song, right?

“I was feeling that joint,” Game told XXLmag.com about Hov and Kanye West’s “Otis.” “‘Ye is snapping.”

And, Jay?

“Kanye was snapping,” he said, wryly.

Here’s a dome shot to this niggas named Otis,” Game himself snapped not to subtlety on “Uncle Otis.” “Niggas think they the coldest, but they just the oldest/Niggas be chasing they youth, but its gone/Yo, ‘Ye this nigga didn’t even want to put you on.

The track is the latest barb the former G-Unit star has taken at Jay-Z throughout his career. “Uncle Otis” also serves as the first offering from Game’s forthcoming mixtape Hood Mornin due August 1 with producer Mars. The mixtape will be followed next month by Game’s long-in-the-works LP, The R.E.D. Album.

On “Uncle Otis,” Game flips his flow throughout the track and described the record as his 2012 version of 50 Cent’s “How To Rob.”

“It’s poking jokes and taking shots, but that’s what I do,” he said. “I’m just shooting in the dark, when I turn on the lights if a couple of motherfuckers is down, I got to get up out of there.

“Anybody that takes it personal, they really shouldn’t but if you do, we can go there,” he added.

Bay Area newcomer Kreayshawn landed in Game’s cross-hairs, too. The “Gucci Gucci” rapper raised his ire for her tweet where she paraphrased DMX and used the N-word. Despite not uttering it conversation and later explaining that she doesn’t say the word herself, Game said her use was flagrant enough for him.

“You can’t be playing with that word, some people will take it serious,” he explained. “Especially coming from someone that’s [not black]. There’s a lot of tragic history behind it.”—Jayson Rodriguez

    Game looks like what Sisqo would look like if a giant amazon woman shoved him up her snatch. Maybe it’s a piru thing.

  • pap3rchazer

    Smh how could anyone compare How To Rob to Unlce Otis?!?! How To Rob was fair because 50 was a hungry underground artist lookin for a way to get into the industry so w/e….but Game has been put on since 2005, theres no reason to even go that route! lol anyways I thought the track was wack

    Game knows that Jay can’t ignore him forever. On some real emcee shit I respect that Game had a rhyme ready to fire off the day after Jay released Otis. I agree it’s a corny ploy and a cry for attention but on some real live rapping shit this is so Hiphop.

  • http://@teezyisdashit Camagu Quincy Siko

    I don’t know whether it’s the obsession or hate but definetly Game has something against Jay-Z…just gotta figure it out. R.E.D Nation!!

  • Stuart ‘Streezy’ McEachern

    Stupid-Ass girl! What the hell was she thinking. Game is right, you can’t just write shit like that if you’re not black! Kreayshawn shut your mouth and never open it again!

  • Que Rollo

    Shit’s getting old. Same shit just a different day. Make a banger homie.

  • Thelonius SuperMicrophonus

    Game can rap, we know that. But his bi-polar attention seeking needs to be adressed.

    I actually like his tweets and all that but his whole schtick is tiring now. He’s pretty irrelevant these days.

    And again..

    FOH with the age thing!

  • Schism

    The song is horrible so Jay will easily ignore it and maybe even laugh it off. The Game has turned into a little kid. Why does he act like a third grader for? Grow up dude! This is why no one likes or respect him. His own family don’t like him. He don’t even live in Compton no more cause real niggas in the hood want to kill his imposter ass. Game u suck!!!
