The Game took to Instagram on Thursday (February 24) to reveal he will finally be sitting down with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN on the next episode of Drink Champs.
“I know what y’all saying right now, but we really filming this in the future,” Game can be heard saying in his Instagram video as N.O.R.E. hands him a bottle of tequila and grapefruit Cîroc, implying the interview has already been wrapped.
The Game will have a lot to discuss when he sits down with Drink Champs. The interview comes as the California rapper has relentlessly hyped up his next project Drillmatic for most of 2022, all while linking up with Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Pusha T, Diddy and Quavo.
The “Hate It Or Love It” lyricist has made some audacious claims to hype up his next project, including that Drillmatic will solidify him and Hit-Boy as rap’s next iconic rapper-producer duo. He declared on Instagram back in January the project would put the duo within the upper echelon of tag-teams such as Nas and DJ Premier, JAY-Z and Just Blaze, and DMX and Swizz Beatz.
“Nas & Premo, Swizz & X, Hov & Just Blaze, Game & Hit…….. after this album. #DRILLMATIC,” he wrote while sharing a photo of him and Hit-Boy grinding it out in the studio.
While The Game has offered some bold claims so far, he isn’t the only rapper praising Drillmatic. G Herbo recently commended the project as the “hardest album” of 2022. Jay Electronica also called “EAZY” with Kanye West “one of the greatest records of all time.”
The Eazy E-sampled track “EAZY” has already shaped up to be The Game’s highest-charting single in nearly 15 years. It debuted at No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January, which is the first time the 42-year-old rapper had cracked the Hot 100 since his 2008 single “My Life” with Lil Wayne. With so much to discuss, The Game is sure to talk about all of this and more on the next Drink Champs.
