Warren G Chooses Eminem Over The Game and Addresses Melle Mel's Diss - WhatsOnRap

Warren G's Take on Eminem, The Game, and Melle Mel's Diss Track

Warren G, the West Coast hip-hop veteran, recently shared his perspective on several prominent figures in the rap world during a Drink Champs episode, where his insights left the hosts both intrigued and surprised. When asked to choose between The Game and Eminem, Warren G unequivocally picked Eminem, emphasizing his lyrical prowess and ability to adapt to various personas seamlessly.

"Eminem is dope. I ain't saying Game ain't dope, but Eminem is… You gotta look at what the motherfker wrote. 'Things just ain't the same for gangstas.' He wrote that. That's one of my favorite fking songs. For Dre! How the fk can you write this for this nigga and the shit sound like it's him. And then the motherfker went diamond plus. Diamond plus and all that shit. He's talented. I ain't taking shit from Game, Game is dope too. But it's different. [Eminem] says he's a student. The Game is a student of the game too. It's just, Eminem… I promise you, that motherfker wrote that shit like he was inside Dre's body, in his head. That shit was so motherfking hard! So, when you asked me that, I had to give it to him on that one. Because that shit was dope."

As the conversation unfolded, Charlemagne Tha God humorously extended an olive branch on Melle Mel's behalf, jokingly requesting Eminem's forgiveness for Mel's recent diss track. However, Warren G took a more earnest approach, sharing his thoughts on Melle Mel's diss track aimed at Eminem in response to Em's verse on Ez Mil's single "Realest." While many hip-hop luminaries expressed embarrassment for Melle Mel's attempt, Warren G believed Mel had potential but missed the mark.

"I guarantee, everybody would've been more, 'okay, wait a minute now,' if he did his diss over 'The Message,' doing his shit back then. And people would probably be like, oh shit, wait a minute. But the record he did was like… Nigga, you were doing some shit way back in that era. I ain't dissing it, but he should've grabbed one of these young motherf**king producers and got on their shit. Don't get me wrong, Melle Mel is my nigga, I love Melle Mel. That's OG and everything. But he should've done it over a different type of music and made it more simple. He went super old school with it. And he should have just come up to this era and get down on this type of shit. That shit might have opened up a whole lane for you with these young niggas! Do some buzz over their shit. Rhyming like he rhymes. He knows how to write. So, you take your time with it and be simple with it and just break that shit down."

Charlemagne Tha God asked Warren G if he'd provide a beat for Melle Mel's Eminem diss if Mel reached out, to which Warren G responded that he wouldn't get involved in the feud because he respects both artists musically.

"I couldn't get in it. I wouldn't get in nobody's mix. That's just how I am. I wouldn't get in nobody's mix because I love both of them. Just musically, he could have come a little better."

Warren G's insights provided a glimpse into the complex world of rap rivalries and the enduring appeal of artists like Eminem and The Game in the ever-evolving hip-hop landscape.
