A breakdown of the notable samples that appear on The Game's first disc of "The Documentary 2."
The Game's Documentary 2 has been the subject of much buzz since its release last Friday. The west coast sound is alive with the release, as it falls in line sonically with the likes of YG, Jay Rock, and Dr. Dre's Compton. The samples help to give the record a nostalgic vibe amongst the dense production.
That vibe settles in pretty much immediately when you hear Erykah Badu atop "On Me." The Kendrick-assisted track manipulates the neo-soul classic into a G-funk banger, thanks to some great production by Bongo the Drum Gahd. As the record plays on, everything from Chic to Phantogram were sampled from The Game and his team.
We've decided to bring back our Origins segment to dissect The Documentary 2 properly. Here is your guide to the samples on The Game's newest album.
