V Exclusive: Game Breaks Down Jay-Z Diss Track ‘Uncle Otis’: ‘It’s Just The Truth…’
The VIBE offices turned into a barbershop moments ago when we came across “Uncle Otis,” Game’s latest verbal attack against Jay-Z and… helpless victims Kreayshawn and Marc Anthony.
As the laughter and banter ensued, we felt the need to get Game on the phone and see just why Chuck Taylor decided to hurl more rocks at the Throne.
“Hurricane Game is back—no more games,” Game tells VIBE on his latest scathing diss track. “It’s R.E.D. Album time—fuck the bullshit. I’m about to go back to my old self and start killing everybody.”
“Man, with everyone [the beef] is ongoing. It might have died for a minute but I aint never forgot about it. With ‘Uncle Otis,’ it’s just a shot in the dark, man. it aint for nobody to take personal. It’s like my version of ‘How To Rob.’ I’m just having fun, getting back to the days when I was just spittin.”
“I did this shit at like 5:00 AM man with five-seconds on the clock. I heard ‘Otis’ before I got to the studio, like ‘Oh this is ‘Otis’?. I gotta kill this shit.’ We couldn’t find the instrumental , so my man Mars 1500 did a new beat.”
Reciting the craziest lines from “Uncle Otis,” we had to ask for a detailed expalnation for each. —Mikey Fresh
Game breaks down the most lethal diss lines on “Uncle Otis” below:
At Jay-Z: “Here is a dome shot to this n—a named Otis/ Niggas think they the coldest but n—a you just the oldest/N—az be chasin they youth but its gone/Yo, ‘Ye this n—a ain’t even wanna put you on and you turn around and put on Shawn…”
Game says: It’s just the truth man, Jay had a time when he was unfuckwitable. Nobody could touch him and I feel like that time has kinda passed. Jay is like Sugar Ray Robinson if hip-hop was boxing. There comes a time when you gotta be like Lenox Lewis and you gotta go out when you’re on top as king. Versus trying to do the MIchael Jordan thing playing for the Wizards.
At Jay-Z and Kanye: “Who run the world?/Jason./Will Kelly Rowland come and be my “Motivation”?/if you invented Swag then I invented gangsta/ got one in the chamber/the throne is now in danger…”
Game Says: I feel like they saying ‘Watch The Throne’— I’m watching. Let’s go! I’m not impressed with nothing right now. The Throne is for the taking, anybody can get it right now. I’m take my shot on August 23rd.
At Kreayshawn: And I dont wear no Fendi Fendi Gucci Gucci Prada/ I’m Charles Loubotin/U niggas aint saying Nada/ Little white bitch betta stay in ya place /call me a nigga, I’m stick the K in ya face
Game says: I was just fuckin’ around. I never met her in real life or even know what she looks like. I just seen the N-word shit on Twitter. It’s just a shot in the dark and I don’t really think she could do anything if she takes it personal. But her saying “nigga” ain’t cool. That ain’t never gonna be cool, ever ever.
Tyler: “I created Tyler the Creator/ Here go courtside seats / You’re now tuned into the greatest”
Game says: He’s from the West Coast and anything that came after me on the West is something that I had a hand in creating. Just like Snoop and Dre with me. It ain’t a shot, we just talked this morning. It’s all love.
Marc Anthony: Jennifer Lopez just got a divorce and I already got her in the Porsche/trying to teach her “how to love, how to love”/ Marc Anthony too short look at that n—a look and I’m “6 Foot 7 Foot 8 Foot”…”
Game says: I just had to put my two cents on it, J.Lo’s back on the market. [Laughs]
Final Words: If see you Uncle Otis, tell him to holla at me. - Game
