The Game is back with his second new track in the past week, following his protest record with Jeremih, "Let Me Know," a response to the recent violence that has seemed to hog all the headlines this summer.
Let Me Know
The Game Feat. Jeremih
The Game recently organized an anti-violence gang summit in L.A., and today, he's released a song that responds to recent instances of violence across the world, specifically, the police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castille, the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, the officers killed in Dallas, and the tragedy in Nice, France. Sampling Aaliyah's "We Need A Resolution," the rapper searches for answers in an effort to better the world.
All The Way Up (Westside Remix)
Fat Joe & Remy Ma Feat. Snoop Dogg, The Game, E-40 & French Montana
Fat Joe and Remy Ma's "All The Way Up" has been a consistent presence in New York over the last few months, and judging by its chart placements, NY isn't the only place listening. Still, it always helps to have some regional talent on a record to get radio play elsewhere, and today, the "Westside Remix" of the record has done just that, adding verses from L.A.'s The Game, Long Beach's Snoop Dogg, and The Bay's E-40. They all bring their own flavor to the record, finding pockets NY rappers probably wouldn't even see on the beat. So is the beauty of regional styles.
Marcus Black Feat. The Game & Troy Ave
Marcus Black makes quite the HNHH debut this afternoon. The rapper, who is one of The Game's proteges, comes through with a massive banger that features The Game, and another street-favorite Troy Ave. The trio come together over chaotic production from Bongo. Bongo's beat is a blend of old school scratches, piano keys, and hard-hitting drums. It's the perfect blend of old and new hip-hop sounds.
The Game Feat. Jeremih
On Friday, The Game released his new soundtrack to pair up with the A&E documentary series "Streets of Compton." If that wasn't sufficient, The Game is back this Monday making sure we kick off the week on a high note. He's quickly going into album mode now that the docu-series is out of the way, and grabs singer Jeremih for a smooth-ass hook on "All Eyez." The record serves as The Game's lead single from his upcoming album 1992, which will be released independently via Entertainment One Music/Fifth Amendment/Blood Money (no release date yet).
Death Row Chain
The Game has a new project called Streets Of Compton on the way, and today, he's shared a new track called "Death Row Chain," which finds him telling the story of the label. Game gets knee-deep in nostalgia, reflecting on his desire to be part of the Death Row movement as he was growing up. He recalls seeing the rise of Tupac, Snoop Dogg, and Dr. Dre, documenting the history of the empire, as well as its demise, eventually coming to the conclusion that it's his responsibility to put on for the region.
The Game has a new documentary series airing on A&E, titled "Streets of Compton," it's a three-part series that kicks off tonight (June 9th) at 9 PM ET/PT, followed by the second part at 10 PM, while the third and final segment airs June 16th at 9 PM ET/PT. The documentary "chronicles the city’s history and illustrates how the iconic music, culture and style that came out of the area in the ’80s and early ’90s were influenced by the drugs, gangs and political turmoil of the time.
Bad Boy On Death Row
Dave East Feat. The Game
A week after his last track, "Dead Man Walking," Dave East is back with a strong new collab with The Game: "Bad Boy on Death Row." There's a good amount of kinship between the stylings of the Compton veteran and the Harlem youngster, and on "Bad Boy on Death Row," they come through with a smooth, purist piece of gangsta rap. The title is fitting.
The Game Feat. Problem & Boogie
The sheer number of rappers coming out the Long Beach/Compton section of Los Angeles is nothing short of incredible. There's a reason The Game calls his hood "Black Wall Street." He loves nothing more than linking up with his fellow South Central natives in the studio. Most recently he recruits Problem and Boogie for a smooth League of Starz-produced West Coast banger called "Roped Off." Boogie has been pretty quietly ever since he signed to Interscope last August. Hopefully that means he's been cooking up his debut album... guaranteed to set the streets on fire.
How We Do [Throwback]
The Game Feat. 50 Cent
Despite just how heralded their working relationship was, The Game and 50 Cent actually don't have a lot of collaborations together. After news circulated earlier this week citing a possible reunion between once-collaborators and friends, we got pretty excited, and decided for today's TBT song to bring back one of their few collaborations that appeared on The Game's debut album.
The Game Feat. Sonyae
Like many others, The Game is mourning the loss of Afeni Shakur, and in tribute to the activist and mother to Tupac, he's released a track going out to mothers everywhere. "Mama" continues in the tradition of classic mom rap songs such as Kanye West's "Hey Mama," and of course, Tupac's "Hey Mama". In the final moments of the song, he sends out thoughts to his mother, Lynette Marie Baker, as well as Afeni. "I know you're happy you're with Pac now. I know he alright. He got his mama," letting the song ride out to a clip of "Dear Mama".
Rest In Purple (Prince Tribute)
The Game Feat. Lorine Chia
The world lost a musical icon on Thursday when legendary singer, Prince, was found dead in his home studio in Minneapolis. Many fans, peers, and fellow artists immediately took to social media to give their condolences, but The Game decided to pay his respects on wax, releasing a new tribute record tonight fittingly called “Rest In Purple” featuring Lorine Chia .
DJ Quik & Problem Feat. The Game & Candace Boyd
DJ Quik and Problem dropped their surprise EP, Rosecrans, today, and they've now uploaded the title track to SoundCloud, which should give you a good idea of the feel of the project. A buttery smooth groove, complimented by some funky-ass keys gives way to Candace Boyd's G-Funk-informed hook, while The Game and Problem give us their West Coast best. Unfortunately, Quik doesn't spit a verse, but he does have a spoken bridge, which contains enough charisma and wisdom that it pretty much qualifies as a 16.
Two Blunts (420)
The Game Feat. Wiz Khalifa & Lorine Chia
We were expecting to hear some new music in the name of 420, and so far, the rap game has delivered. The Game has shared a new collaboration with hip-hop's most popular stoner, Wiz Khalifa, which features a soulful hook from Lorine Chia, and makes for perfect smoking music. "Two Blunts" cruises along with some wispy synth sounds, allowing Game and Wiz Khalifa to find some sinking-into-the-couch level flows, settling into the perfect cushion groove with some half-sung bars.
DUBB Feat. The Game
As we await the arrival of The Game's upcoming project, 1992, he appears on a new track with frequent collaborator, DUBB, as the two go bar-for-bar, trading off furious verses over a pounding instrumental with no room for hooks. It's clear these two feed off of one another's energy, as these are two of the hardest verses from either artist in recent memory, each locking into a double-time rhythm and staying away from triplets altogether.No word on where this one will end, but it'd be hard to believe DUBB would leave it off his next project. Here's hoping that arrives soon.
Back In The Day
Koache Feat. The Game & Nottz
New to the site, Koache is an up & coming rapper out of Los Angeles, California who happens to be coming off the release of a debut album called Game Point, which features guest appearances from Xzibit, The Game, Nottz, WC of Westside Connection, Cory Gunz, Nottz and BJ The Chicago Kid, and more.
Fresh off of dropping The Documentary 2 in 2015, the Game is back with more tracks. He already dropped the very sexual “Do It To You” with Trey Songz last week.
Do It To You
The Game Feat. Trey Songz
As if we weren't already digesting the two stacked volumes of The Documentary 2 Game dropped on us a few months back, he's started off the new year with a strong new collab with Trey Songz. The smooth track is set to appear on the deluxe repackaged version of the albums, putting both discs into one set and adding a few bonus cuts.
Room In Here
Anderson .Paak Feat. The Game & Sonyae Elise
Looking to build off the momentum generated from his latest NxWorries EP with Knxledge, not to mention his work on Dr. Dre's Compton album, Anderson Paak is currently prepping the release of his sophomore album Malibu, which is dropping January 15th.
Lyrica Anderson Feat. YG & The Game
Lyrica Anderson has found mild success as a solo artist, but perhaps she's more well known for what she does for other artists, as a songwriter. She's been in the industry since she was a young'n, but somehow she hasn't left a lasting impression when it comes to her own career as a singer. She's looking to change that with her upcoming EP, Hello, due out at the end of the week.
