Seems like the recent release and success of the ‘Watch The Throne’ album (Jay Z and Kanye West) has sparked some kind of inspiration for a lot of rappers. And what better rapper knows how to show that something inspired him none other than the Aftermath Records West Coast artist, Game, who in an interview stated that he would roll with rap veteran Snoop Dogg if given an opportunity to make a joint LP.
“If I had to link up with someone on the West Coast, first and foremost it would be Snoop – Snoop is my dude, that would be crazy, that would be a crazy collaborative effort right there,” Game said in an interview. “[Does the West need a Watch the Throne-esque album?] I don’t think the West Coast needs anything, I think we’ve been perfectly fine doing what we been doing forever, the West don’t need nothing we straight, we get everything we need — we got the DUB! We the only Coast that can throw up the DUB so let’s ride with that.” (Dubcnn)
The Game is infamous for making sure his stamp is laid down on the pavement, having did multiple mixtapes, including a 20 minute freestyle over Jay Z and Kanye West’s ‘Otis’ track, from their Watch The Throne album.
What would Bigg Snoop Dogg do if Game presented this idea to him? In my opinion, it would definitely be a SMASH.

Seems like some haterism is going on in the rap game. Every since Jay Z and Kanye West released the statement that they would drop an album together, ‘Watch The Throne’, many EMCEES have been going on a twitter raid dissing the Jiggaman and the Louis Vutton Don. However, it didn’t stop there. West Coast rapper and Aftermath Records signee, Game has even went on to record his own version of Jay and Yeezy’s ‘Otis’ in which he takes shot at Jay Z; yet making a statement on a radio interview that he was just having fun and his shots are not meant to be taken serious.
What’s all the ‘Watch The Throne’ bashing about? Do you think it has lived up to its hype? As for me, I certify it, PHENOMENAL. Much need in the falling game of lyricism as both Jay Z and Kanye is making these rappers step their pen game up.
