Most Internet savvy rap heads are well aware a streamrip of The Game’s anticipated seventh studio album, The Documentary 2 leaked a week ahead of schedule. If you’re not aware, we suggest you want to buy it on iTunes for the best quality listening experience but that’s besides the point.

One of the records gaining traction amongst social media conversation is the Ab-Soul-featured “Dollar & A Dream,” where Game gives Lupe Fiasco a name drop that could be perceived in a variety of ways.

“I put it on a head I ain’t talkin no toupee,” The Compton rapper spits. “I stayed the same ain’t go weird like Lupe.”

Brother Fiasco would likely refer to himself as more refined than when he first entered the music industry circa 2006 and he offered up a response on his Twitter with the video for Radiohead’s 1992 debut single, “Creep.”

The alternative rock song’s lyrics for the chorus goes, “”But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo, what the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here,” which was the first thing that probably came to mind when Lupe heard Game’s “diss.”

Game and Lupe collaborated in 2012 on the song “Skate On” from the California Republic mixtape so it’s likely Jayceon didn’t mean much by it, but considering the source, you can never be too sure.

It should be interesting to see if J. Cole should also respond to the song, as the title borrows from his trademarked single and annual tour series.

Listen to The Game’s “Dollar & A Dream” below and find your own conclusion.
