Game discusses Pharrell's underrated claim and meeting Eazy-E as a child

Recently, Pharrell mentioned Game, saying he was one of rap's most underrated figures. For nearly two years, Pharrell has been working with Game on The R.E.D. Album. The chemistry between the two was so strong, Game had a tattoo done with the logo of the Star Trak company, Pharrell's imprint.

While Game said he would take the underrated nod from Pharrell, he said he does not think he is underrated. The only reason Game thinks Pharrell said he is underrated is because he knows what he can do in the game. Game said he sticks out because he no longer wears chains, attends award shows, or goes to Miami.

Long before Dr. Dre became his mentor, or before he even offered to sign him, Game met Eazy-E. At the time, the former NWA leader was shooting a video for "Real Compton Gs," a diss to future Game mentor, Dr. Dre. Because he was in Compton, Game was at the video shoot and he had the chance to meet Eazy-E.

Game approached Eazy-E during the video shoot and said he wanted to be just like him. Eazy-E replied he should not want to be like him, he should want to be like the president. Those words stuck with Game and he has kept Eazy-E's sentiments with him over the years.
