Warren G on his featured Drink Champs episode was asked to pick between Eminem or The Game and he did not hesitate with his response. Warren G picked Eminem.
DJ EFN for unknown reasons seemed surprised by Warren G’s answer stating “really.” Though one can speculate that DJ EFN’s surprise was because Warren G is from the West Coast and so is The Game. Maybe DJ EFN assumed that because of that Warren G would automatically pick The Game over Eminem.
