The Game Issues Relentless Rick Ross Diss, “Freeway’s Revenge”

The Game appears to be ready to battle in an undercard exhibition against Rick Ross, and his diss track is all the proof. On Friday (May 10), Game released the track via DatPiff’s official YouTube channel, with the cover art including a reference to “Freeway” Rick Ross, the drug dealer whom the Miami rapper allegedly lifted his name and persona from. The Compton emcee takes shots at Rick Ross’ speculated sexual kinks, health issues, fabricated life stories, and his experience working as a correctional officer. 

“Was it fabricated? The lies you tell are getting saturated?/ What happened to the birds in the Maserati, they just evaporated?/ That sh*t be too exaggerated/ F**kin with a Compton ni**a, get you head decapitated/ Let a DiCaprio, all that cap like you activated/ ‘I just a bought a hundred-foot yacht, and it was captivatin”/ Congratulations, what an imagination/ From C.O. to drug kingpin now this ni**a actin’ Hatian/ The stories these ni**as tell,” he spits. 

The track also features a couple of bars referencing the Kendrick Lamar-Drake feud, with clever lines playing off their names and artistic brands, “This ain’t the Kendrick beef, my Drac’ [Drake] sings songs/ Shots rings out, the neighbor better have his Ring on.” 

“My K. Dot sh*t, I won’t have to turn the beam on/ It’s that, time of the month, get this pu**y somethin’ to bleed on/ Your baby mama told me you liked to get peed on/ You a C.O., that’s the last time you had keys on/ And we know, you treat Gunplay like he a peon/ And he know some sh*t that ain’t cool for him to speak on,” he adds, alluding to a mysterious yet possibly damning revelation involving his MMG cohort, Gunplay. 

He later addresses Rick Ross turning on Drake, cleverly calling him out for allegedly lying about selling “birds,” all while trolling the “owl,” a symbol mostly associated with Drake’s OVO team and brand. 

The diss arrives a week after Game vocalized his opinions regarding the state of Hip-Hop’s current landscape stemming from Kendrick and Drake’s battle. The rapper asserted that he isn’t being dissed because his peers know what time it is. 

“My level of disrespect has no limit & I can actually rap rap,” he expressed. “Fans gone choose up with whatever artist is currently safe for the culture to love as a whole but every real rap ni**a in this sh*t KNOW who to play with & who not to.”   

Around this time, he also took shots at J. Cole for apologizing to Kendrick Lamar for dissing him on his song “7-Minute Drill,” which has now been deleted. Game followed this up by then jabbing at Ross for constantly trolling Drake throughout his feud. He posted AI pictures of Ross in a correctional officer suit, running with a bucket of fried chicken.
