Why is rapper The Game left out of conversation for "All-Time Hip Hop Diss Tracks"?

Admit it, you don't have anything to say unless it's negative or combative. Day in day out, it's been very well proven how people are much quicker to respond to negativity before they do "positivity". So much so, that negative prompts to reaction come with emphasis, passion, and of course, anger. Whether it be disagreements, racism, or genuine dislike for the opposite party, people operate on negative vibes. And in Hip Hop, this has shown to be a very effective marketing strategy.

In Hip Hop, there is no shortage of diss tracks. Whether it be in tha mainstream media or your local music scene, rappers have found it useful to feed off negative waves. And many have capitalized off of it. For example, "Ether" by Nas is definitely considered one of the hardest diss records of all time, right? Not only was it a great diss, but it made the official tracklisting for Nas' album at that time, Stillmatic.

We could go on a tangent and name countless rappers out there who've produced dope Hip Hop diss records. But, we're not going to do that. We're sure that information is already out there. But, out of
all the rappers who are mentioned in the conversation for best Hip Hop diss records, we find it odd that Compton, CA rapper The Game is unusually overlooked. He may or may not be proud of this project, but when The Game released "You Know What It Is" Vol.3, an entire mixtape dissing 50 Cent and G-Unit, it was the most talked about thing in Hip Hop at that time...as far as beef and diss records go. The Game dropped 300 bars dissing a whole unit of artists! Whether it be loyal/disloyal, we are looking at the significance of lyrical skill and versatility here.

For The Game's mixtape dissing G-Unit to be overlooked in the conversation for best Hip Hop diss records proves that people don't know what they're talking about. But hey, I guess I'm tha only one who knows the 300 Bars word for word...other than The Game himself of course. Am I tha only person who can rap every word of every song on The Documentary? We realized that the 300 Bars has been legally taken down from virtually every platform to listen and download music. Understandably so, since he rhymed over a plethora of Hip Hop classics.

In short, DON'T YOU EVER LEAVE THE GAME OUT OF THE TOP 10!
