The 15 Biggest Old School vs. New School Rap Beefs

Jay-Z vs. The Game

Year: 2005 - 2009

The beef between Jay-Z and The Game can pretty much be summed up in one word: weird. It's lasted for more than six years now, and has consisted mostly of Game firing random shots at Hov. According to Game, the whole thing started because Jay made some less-than-encouraging comments about the career prospects of rappers around the same age as Game. This initial slight led to Game doing everything from having his fans chant "Fuck Jay-Z" and "Old Ass Nigga" to his flat-out strange record "Uncle Otis" last year. Even more bizarre, Game has openly acknowledged that he knows he'll never get a response, but he keeps on dissing Hov regardless and has even claimed that many of the disses are the result of the word Jay being easy to rhyme with—no Happy Gilmore.
