The Game has admitted that he regrets comments he made about Dr. Dre during a 2022 interview. During an appearance on Drink Champs, while discussing Kanye West, the rapper said, “It’s crazy that Ye did more for me in the last two weeks than Dr. Dre did for me my whole career.”
During an interview with Amazon Music, The Game said that he was drunk when he made the comments and he should have been more grateful that Dre did anything for him at all.
He explained, “So basically I was hollering at N.O.R.E. and them a little inebriated. And I said some things that I meant. I’m not gon’ take it back – I ain’t no sucker. But having Dre do anything for your project, anything in your career, touch any part of anything you’re doing in life is such a blessing that I shall not ever sh*t on that again.”
He continued, “And I haven’t talked to Dre since. And it don’t really matter if we talk again in life. Like, I’m a standup Compton, L.A. n*gga and it is what it is. I said what I said, I’m not going back on it. It’s just that I should have actually gave him more grace for what he did do and that was actually mentoring me and doing things that nobody could have done for me in my career.
Game added, “When I was talking on there, I was speaking in terms of what Ye was doing right at that moment which was life-changing for me in that moment last year. And then I based it on Dre’s lack thereof because I took the business part personal and I should have left it business. But Dre is Dre, bro. We all know what Dr. Dre do.”
