Review: The Game's "Documentary 2" Oct 9, 2015 at 02:04pm
The Game is a man of contradictions. His long-awaited follow-up to 2005's The Documentary begins with the Compton rapper hopping out of his car to bust some heads, and ends with a cheery hook sung by will.i.am and Fergie that sounds like it belongs in a Mary Kate & Ashley movie set in Los Angeles.

10) The Game feat. Diddy - Standing On Ferraris In his search for another hit, The Game is an equal opportunity employer. The decidedly West Coast rapper is even willing to reach out to the figurehead of the label that was once at the forefront of the East Coast sound -- though he only grants him a speaking role.  "Standing On Ferraris" didn't budge in its second week on the charts, holding strong at #10.

The disagreement began with will.i.am's claim that Pharrell's "i am OTHER" title was "confusingly similar" to his own artist name. Pharrell responded cleverly to the Black Eyed Peas frontman's claims in the following statement.

The new entries keep coming in on Charts Don't Lie. Recent weeks have seen quite a few releases that are within the hip-hop realm, as is often the case, because rappers like to release projects on the same day.

This is suprising when you think the target market for Will.i.am is definitely the mainstream and thus the numbers should reflect that.
