smh you guys are straight hating on R.E.D. it's 3 tracks off of a classic, tracks 1-11 are fire, 12-15 don't fit the dark concept but it picks back up at 16 to the end. LOL at wtt being better than r.e.d., that shit is ass there are only 3 good songs on it from 2 of the most overrated artists ever. Also wtt sounds like a kanye album with jay gargling his balls on the side. For the production wtt is nice but r.e.d. is not bad at all there are some clean beats on it. The only valid argument is that there are too many features and it doesn't sound like a game album, but atleast he did show that his lyrical ability has grown and that he's hungry.

It may seem like I am but that's because I've been a game fan since he first started and I know what he's capable of and how he's evolved. Just sad to see him get no recognition outside of his fan base when guys like kanye and jay get praised for putting out a sub par album.

I hear what you're saying but far more talented rappers have gotten way less recognition then The Game. That's even sadder but thats what it is

One reason why I respect The Game is because he respects the people who pave the way for him.

No doubt but in a way it's good, meaning they didn't sell out to the mainstream audience.

yee and that's wat makes his music so appealing to me, he uses the styles and flows of legends and puts his own touch on it. Alot of ppl don't realize that he didn't start rapping until after he woke up from a coma and was studying classics such as illmatic, reasonable doubt and so on and that's the reason he always "namedrops" and pays homage; he's a fan first, rapper second.

Also I love the "I don't give a fuck" type of attitude that he possesses it's entertaining as hell and I can relate to it cuz I'm one stubborn mofo lol

btw how do you guys feel about k.dot


absolutely murders "the city"

Content, wordplay, lyrics, story telling ability, production, overall message

Games new album was just alright. Nothing stands out to me.
THe Song with Tyler and Lil Wayne - Martians and Goblins is alright. And the Primo produced track was good too. But the production of the album as a whole seemed amateur. It sounded too gritty.
Games lyrics are good, i give him that. But his flow is boring as hell.
Thats just my take on it.
