    Features look AAA+++ will listen. Tracklist looks short and concise with no filler. Looking forward to album of the year and the best Game album ever. #PregnantStrippers

    Features all looked hand picked as well. No cash grabs here.

    I've just realised they are all pregnant. I think we have a new contender for the "worst album cover ever" award.

    Label: So Game, what do you have planned for the cover of your new album?

    Game: Well, this is my final album called Born 2 Rap, instead of showing homage to the west coast I think it would be cool to get 10 pregnant thots and have them sitting around me in he studio

    Doc 2 was very underrated imo, and I enjoyed some parts of his tapes since then. Very excited for this, single was dope as hell

    Yep. If it really is his last album he should be paying homage to the West Coast that made his career.

    Shit cover art and a very worrying looking tracklist.

    This looks like it should be a mixtape, not an album.

    After more listening, like @relapse 2 I can play 13 out of 24 tracks at least more than once. This ratio of good/bad is the worst out of any Game album though, with that said despite the best songs on this overall, this is probably the worst if not 2nd. LAX has a lot of forgettable songs too... hmm...

    1. Doctor’s Advocate
    2. The Documentary
    3. Documentary 2 (2nd disk)
    4. 1992
    5. Jesus Piece
    6. Documentary 2 (1st disk)
    7. R.E.D. Album (could’ve been a LOT better)

    Intro is nice

    No Smoke has a nice beat, but the song itself should've been on a mixtape. Not worthy of last album material.

    Five Hundred Dollar Candles is sloooooowwww...... I respect Dom Kennedy but he's always made music that's mostly too boring for me. Talented just not my style.

    The Light is better, I can tell why people are talking about the "boringness" of this album though.

    Carmen Elektra is not helping with a change of pace, but not bad. Might appreciate these 2 on first listen if the first 3 songs had more energy in them.

    The Red Cafe feature.... sigh...still too slow. The chorus is talking about f--king her ass to sleep, but this beat makes me want to put myself to sleep.

    Gold Daytonas I can f--k with, the "Get Money" sample is dope. First song I can say will be replayed a lot.

    West Side's alright. First song with some high energy on this. Beat sounds like he sampled Tetris.

    40 Ounce Love suffers from a non-inspiring beat that belongs as a Jesus Piece leftover. Lyrically not bad though.

    Gucci Flip Flops... more slooooow beats... lyrically sounds like another song on here

    Born 2 Rap (song) has a beat that sounds like old Kanye which is great... this one's a keeper. But still... the conscious-slow beats is killing me.

    Welcome Home is great too. Take out Gucci Flip Flops and 40 Ounce love I may appreciate these more.

    Bitch wtf is this interlude? Sly go back to the Detox vault bro, this ain't working for me.

    Marsha collab is good, will not top Why You Hate The Game but it'll pass for another play.

    The Code FINALLY brings some needed higher energy back on this album. 21 Savage was great on this.

    Stay Down is a no for me... too much of the same type of song

    Hug The Block is a personal record, I can appreciate it. Don't know how often it'd get played though

    Ask For Me has the sound I've been looking for. The fast-piano shit is right up my alley. This is my favorite so far.

    Stainless is ok, the Picture me Rollin sample doesn't bore me like 60% of the beats on here

    Gangsta Make The Girls Go Wild is NOT bad. Chill without being a snorefest

    Blood Thicker Than Water, is again sounding like another song on here that is too slow. Lyrically good, but this song has def been made by Game before

    Rewind II is pretty good... I have a feeling some of you skipped this because of the 12+ sleepy records. If you make it to this one, it's unique with a simplistic yet good paced beat and flow. Too short though!!!!!

    One Life got a One Life To Live show intro sounding ass beat at the beginning... but it doesn't stay soap opera jazzy lmao. Ok but idk about album worthy.

    Cross On Jesus Back is cool, but D Smoke sounds like young Kendrick. This belongs on Jesus Piece, will prob get replay value even though beat is very uninspiring because it's lyrically pretty good.

    Roadside is fantastic, Ed Sheeran did not dissapoint and just stuck to singing which is a big plus. Acoustic guitar beat is great and Game's verses are perfect on it.

    Overall, not a horrible album but the main style Game went for is not appealing to me because it gets repetitive and uninspiring. The best songs are keepers and are some of the best Game's ever made, for a final album though, he could've done better with his resources

    If you mixed the best of both CDs you could make a 10/10, at LEAST a 9/10 out of all the best material

    I couldn't find anybody talking about this on here, so while I'm sneaking back on this bitch I figure to give this attention. Game claims this is last album but we all know that's gonna be a lie.



    Good interview:




    50's not opposed to working with Game either, had nothing bad to say about him which is a good sign and he didn't even know he had an album coming (14:27-16:24)


    Some standout features from the last year




    Straight up copied Nip$$ie's style on this




    Hopefully I remember to update properly. Game's easily a top 5 from the 2000s era. Discuss!!!

    Game is corny and the majority of his discography (this included) is mid but I've always thought there's something endearing about his love for hip hop, for the legends, for his peers and for the culture that sets him apart. He often comes across way too strong but his passion is admirable and he's a decent enough writer/rapper with just enough charisma to carry him as far as he's come.

    A few highlights on this, 21 Savage absolutely murdered it, I really liked the Nas tribute and a few others. But otherwise just another Game record I probably won't be returning to any time soon.
