A poster at RapWorlds.com was on hand as G-Unit’s The Game performed in Amsterdam at the Heineken Music Hall along with Snoop Dogg. After telling the crowd he had heard that Jay-Z had been dissing him on Hot 97, he asked, “Now I told ya’ll I don’t take shots at legends, but how many of ya’ll think Game should record a diss song for Jay-Z?” He then started a chant to the beat of ‘How We Do’ calling out Ja Rule, Ashanti, Jay-Z, Rocafella, and others.

While many words can be used to describe The Game, the most accurate one may be “anticipation.” As if being the latest protégé to Dr. Dre wasn’t enough, he was later added as a member of G-Unit, and he’s also emerged as one of the industry’s premier sh-t talkers with disses toward everyone from Joe Budden to Yukmouth.

Billboard reports that The Game’s debut album ‘The Documentary’ appears on course to top 600,000 sales, based on first-day numbers cited by retail chains, easily enough for the G-Unit star to top the charts. The Game also has a chance to score the biggest opening week of any January since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991, just needed to top Alan Jackson’s 2002 CD, ‘Drive’, which cleared 423,000 units in the month’s final week.

Though The Game tells The New York Daily News he wants to be known as “the controversial gangsta rapper from Compton,” he obviously has his limits. A track that was originally intended for the CD, titled ‘Soldier’, found him attacking scores of major rappers. “If you heard it, you’d say ‘this guy has balls the size of King Kong’s,” the rapper crowed. But when label chief Jimmy Iovine said the track was “too harsh,” he shelved it.
Rolling Stone caught up with The Game for a Q&A and asked the G-Unit rapper if there is resentment in hip-hop that a white dude — Eminem — is running the game. “White, black, Asian — I don’t give a fu**, man,” Game responded. “Everybody thinks it’s so bizarre because a white kid has never been at the top of hip-hop’s food chain. Eminem’s a talented motherfu**er, and nobody can fu** with the white dude.”
