The Game is Coming

There's a street feud going on between the G-Unit crew and that of Game & his Black Wallstreet crew. People seem to want to voice their opinion all over as to which is better, Game or G-Unit. Well with the upcoming release of the "Doctor's Advocate" album by Game this month, advantage definitely goes to the Game. Game is bringing hardcore beats and rhymes which lay Lloyd Banks' "Rotten Apple" cd to rest. 50 Cent, you have next move...

I previewed the Game's 16 track LP ahead of time, and its's about to re-take over gangsta rap. It opens with a hard, biting edge to it, Game takes no prisoners and doesn't even look back. Not a single Dr. Dre beat but packed full of original headnod beats with gangsta rap lines and introspective hardcore lyrics. Game enlists the talents of producers such as Kanye West, Just Blaze and Will I Am (Black Eyed Peas). He has guest appearances from Kanye, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Nate Dogg, Nas, Busta Rhymes and Dogg Pound. The beats knock making you feel like your stepping through Compton with Game, or standing in the middle of a rowdy prison yard with a hardcore piano beat kicking you. No sophomore slump for Game on this album 2. It will probably remind most people of The D.O.C., Dre's Chronic 2001 or an NWA album, and that's great for hip hop these days. Even though Game continues to mention red Converse, Eazy-E, 6-4's and Daytons, it would be surprising to see this album get anything less than an "XL" rating on XXL magazines reviews or 4 1/2 mics in Source.
