When comes to hip-hop beefs The Game might be one of the best ever who is underrated when it comes to the quality of his diss tracks. However, his record speaks for itself considering all the classic disrespectful records he has released going at his enemies over the years. Most recently The Game went in on Eminem with a new track that’s over 10 minutes long. His words in the record are already trending worldwide.
The Game seems to have approached this diss track with the hopes directing attention towards Eminem’s race, and things he does that could be considered cultural appropriation. In addition he questioned the cultural impact Eminem’s music has had on hip-hop while shouting out some of his fellow rappers. What he delivered was some clever lines that will likely cut Eminem very deep.
The Game ‘The Black Slim Shady’ Diss Track Lyrics Accusing Eminem of Cultural Appropriation
During his younger days Eminem was famous for wearing durags, and those really baggy sweatpants. However, people often wondered why he was doing so since he can’t get waves. On the surface it seemed like Eminem was appropriating black culture in plain sight, and getting away with it. For example think what people would say if Jack Harlow started wearing durags. In ‘The Black Slim Shady’ lyrics The Game calls out Eminem wearing durags, and directly mentions cultural appropriation.
“You wish you was Santana or Cam in them ten Jays, Durag for ten years and never had one wave”.
“The sweatpants, the dad hat, durag and no jewelry. Mm, is that cultural appropriation. Ask Paul if it’s even appropriate for me to make that statement, rude of me”.

The Game shifted his focus to questioning Eminen’s status in hip-hop culture by claiming Big Sean is the biggest rapper in Detroit. The Game also claims he’s never heard an Eminem song at a bar or club. Things got crazy when The Game said he would listen to Tekashi 6IX9INE instead of Eminem.
“And the biggest rapper in Detroit, that award is Sean Don. So uncork the Chardonnay and stick my fork in white wine. I never heard you in a club, I never heard you in a bar. Eleven albums and ten never got played inside of my car. I’d rather listen to Snitch9ine like sixty-nine times”.
