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.
AD Feat. Ty Dolla $ign, The Game, OT Genesis, Iamsu! & K Camp
What a look for AD. "Juice" is the Compton up-and-comer's biggest hit yet, off his recent mixtape, Blue:89, and now he's gotten some of L.A.'s biggest stars to remix the street anthem. Ty Dolla $ign opens the stacked remix, showing that, despite his constant smoothness, he's still got cold-blooded bars. He's then followed by The Game, L.A.'s man in charge right now after releasing The Documentary 2 and 2.5.
El Chapo (Official)
The Game Feat. Skrillex
The Game's Skrillex collaboration, "El Chapo," sprung a leak last month, but was swept pretty much clean off the net fairly quickly. Now that The Documentary 2 is officially out, Skrill has pulled the trigger on what seems to be the new single from The Doc 2.5, sharing the track on his official SoundCloud today.
My Flag / Da Homies
The Game Feat. Jay 305, Ty Dolla $ign, AD, Mitchy Slick, Joe Moses, RJ (OMMIO) & Skeme
The Game's Documentary 2 just hit iTunes at midnight, but at the same time, we received a gigantic crew track from the impending second half, The Documentary 2.5. The DJ Mustard record sounds like on of the deep cuts from one of the producer's own albums, with some of the L.A. underground's finest showing up, including Skeme, RJ, Joe Moses, Mitchy Slick, Jay 305, AD, as well as Ty Dolla $ign.
Hate It Or Love It
The Game Feat. 50 Cent
Today's #TBT is in honor of The Game, who will release his sixth studio album, Documentary 2, tomorrow (Oct. 9). The album is the sequel to, and arrives over 10 years after, The Documentary, his 2005 debut album, off which this classic, "Hate It Or Love It," is taken. At the time, Game was signed to 50's G-Unit, and both were signed to Dre's Aftermath. Since, after one of the decade's top beefs, they've gone separate ways, but "Hate It Or Love It" remains a shining moment in hip-hop history.
The Game Feat. Dr. Dre, Ice Cube & will.i.am
On October 9, The Game will release the first half of his long awaited Documentary 2 album, with disc 2 dropping the follow week on October 16.
The Game Feat. Kanye West
The Game recently surprised us with the announcement that The Documentary 2 was in fact a double album, to be released in two installments. The first arrived on October 9th, and one of the most anticipated tracks from disc 1 has now made it's way online. "Mula" is a gritty collaboration with Kanye West, who with "Dreams" and "Wouldn't Get Far" has in the past served as one of the rappers best collaborators.
O.T. Genasis Feat. The Game
It's been almost a year since O.T. Genasis' breakout hit, and though he hasn't yet had a release that matches the hype of "CoCo," he's showing strong signs of developing into his own as an artist. On his latest tape, Rhythm & Bricks, Genasis sought to showcase his L.A. roots as part of his rap persona and favored detailed stories about his dope-dealing past over hook-heavy trap house bangers. One of the highlights off R&B is "Homies," a West Coast set-reppin' anthem that finds O.T.
