“One thing I forgot to do with the album, when I put out the tracklisting, I was going to literally count the name-drops myself and put a disclaimer under like, ‘Just so you know, there are 377 name-drops,'" said The Game. “I think that if you listen to Hip Hop, everybody and every album, that everybody name-drops now. When I came, n*ggas wasn’t doing it in the space that they are now, but everyone name-drops. It’s wordplay, it’s lyricism, it’s metaphors and everybody has adapted to it."

“I’m the one that gets all the flak for it, but I love it," he added. "I be sayin’ n*ggas’ names. Like, I want you to know exactly who I’m talking about. Like if the car black as Akon, my n*gga, it’s black as Akon.”

Do you have a problem with The Game or any other rapper name-dropping?
