While many fans have been focusing on The Game's dissing of Eminem in his track 'The Black Slim Shady', others have pointed out a line which, awkwardly, actually makes the rapper look quite protective of the Rap God.

Given that it's a whopping 10 minutes long, it's no surprise that 'The Black Slim Shady' received much of the attention when The Game dropped his latest album, Drillmatic: Heart vs. Mind, earlier this week.

The title of the track alone is enough to prove it's about Eminem, but the lyrics go in on the rapper even more with apparent references to his history with drug addiction, possible cultural appropriation, and even Em's family members including his ex-wife and parents.

One line reads: "He used to be like this rap God / Man, me and my brother praised him / Back when I was little, I don't really like any of his new stuff."

Many fans picked up on the fact The Game makes reference to Eminem's daughter, Hailie, as he raps: "Drop the world on your head with one arm / Dear Slim, Hailie's with me and she's unharmed for now (Dad, I'm really scared)."

The mention of Hailie's name was enough to prompt some fans to question whether The Game could be the 'new' Machine Gun Kelly, who Eminem seemed to reference in a diss track after he made mention of his daughter, but one Reddit user has pointed out The Game's album actually appears to offer conflicting stances on his thoughts about the 'Lose Yourself' singer.

Alongside the lyrics about 'Hailie taken from 'The Black Slim Shady', the user added another line taken from The Game's song 'A Father's Prayer', which reads: "So I gotta protect you, Em and Hailie'.

A caption with the post suggested The Game was 'just confused at this moment', while another fan who picked up on the contradicting lines wrote on Twitter: "The Game just said this on "A Father's Prayers" after threatening Em & Hailie in the diss track. Dude confused af."

Though many fans are convinced 'The Black Slim Shady' is a diss track, some have suggested it's actually a tribute to Eminem, with one writing: "Whether you think The Black Slim Shady was a good diss or not, the song still goes hard. You’re lying if you say otherwise. It is more like a tribute to Em than a diss tho. Nonetheless #drillmatic is 10/10."

It could be that the line in 'A Father's Prayer' is The Game's attempt at making amends after going in on Eminem for 10 minutes straight in 'The Black Slim Shady', but only time will tell whether Em will reveal what he makes of the tracks.
