The Game

It’s hard to believe it’s been over a decade since the Compton-rapper was on the cusp of taking over the rap world. Anointed the great West Coast hope in the early 2000s, The Game’s early mixtape landed him on everyone’s radar. Endorsed by both Dr. Dre and ultimately 50 Cent when inked a deal with G Unit Records, the rapper’s debut album, The Documentary, remains his seminal work even with the slew of no. 1 records that followed. Though he’s become better known for his feuds, reality show and acting, The Game still has his heart in music. With The Documentary 2 slated to be released at some point this year, the MC, at least for one night, is willing to take a trip to the past before he embarks on the future.
