The Game says Dr. Dre only oversaw production on his albums
The Game broke onto the to limelight with the help of Dr. Dre's Aftermath Records, but the latter never made a beat for the former, according to Game. The Compton rapper says Dre only executive-produced his albums, including his debut The Documentary, but never actually made instrumentals for him.
“Dre didn't do any beats on The Documentary,” Game said during an interview on Uproxx's Fresh Pair. “But I didn't say he didn't oversee it. You want Dre to oversee anything 'cause he's a mastermind when it comes to that. But as far as doing a beat for The Documentary? No. And I've never had a Dre beat in my career.
“And again, with all the influence and all the appreciation that I have for Dr. Dre, the fact is the fact. So you know, a bunch of dope producers that Dre had under him or whoever — Scott Storch, the Just Blazes, the Swizz Beatzs, the Timbalands — helped me put together my classic album.”
He added, “It's a Dr. Dre executive produced album, but people just don't understand the underlinings and how the business works. I've never had a song with Dre on it and Dre been in my video. [Snoop Dogg] has a ton, [Eminem] has a ton. I don't have none.”
