Game Is HipHopDX's Guest Editor The Week Of August 22, 2011

With "The R.E.D. Album" dropping this week, Game helped DX plan its content. Read the Aftermath superstar's editor's letter, as he explains what he wants you to do, and why this may be a challenge.

What up, HipHopDX readers. It's Game.

In celebration of the R.E.D. Album dropping this week, I'll be your guest-editor. I don't really know how to be an editor, because I don't really edit shit. I don't edit shit on the radio, I don't edit my lyrics, it just it what it is. But this week I'm making an exception and editing HipHopDX.com. Which means I'm helping to plan the content you'll be reading as if I was in charge.

The site will reflect my tastes, and being controlled by me, means it's a free environment. So browse as you will, listen, learn, love and appreciate. Try not to hate on anything this week on HipHopDX.com, 'cause that's not what this is supposed to be about. This week, it's about appreciation. Appreciate good music and good articles and just appreciate Hip Hop in general. So chill, relax, and we're gonna take some time to remember how Hip Hop was when everybody loved it.

Look out this week for a Game approved feature interviews and exclusive R.E.D. Album info - including a DX staff review. You'll get to know the album's guests and collaborators, as well as artists I'm particularly influenced by. Additionally, we have a very special Black Wall Street DXnext, and we'll close out the week with the Game interview you've all been waiting for.

Oh yeah go pick up R.E.D. on August 23rd...or don't...and just appreciate good music and a dope website!

Peace,

Game

    • Lizard77

      What is up with Game saying he pays everyone if that was true he would of ran out of money a while ago to pay anyone period. Besides Game has friends like AR, Dj Skee, and Nu jersey devil which have been cool with him since day one.

      Game beat up Ras it was even confirmed by Rasses own bodyguard and other sites confirmed that Game served him and Game hit him for a reason whatever it was it must have been a good reason. But I do agree Ras lyrically would domolish Game.

  • Holland

    LAX >> RED Ghe Red album got some good tracks, but shit sounds like a mixtape to me And it doesnt sound like a West Coast album (damn shame) Game you don't need Lil Wayne, just work with the best from the West Shit is gonna be a classic! On topic: Nice idea

  • Jayceon Terrell Taylor

    I was highly upset when Spider Loc took my place in G-Unit. I was supposed to represent the west coast. Why don't things work out the way I want them to?

    • Kz

      Dude your so fuckin sad, you could be 50 cent himself... Ok if you left 1 message it would be kind of funny. But the same joke 8 times? Very very sad, not that Im a major game fan

  • Jayceon Terrell Taylor

    After being kicked out of G-Unit, I tried my best to receive attention from Jay-Z. I knew if I were to join Rocafella at the time, then I could gain back my status. At the time, the next biggest thing to G-Unit was Rocafella. I wanted to replace Memphis Bleek, and I wanted be Jay-Z's new protege. After years of trying to get a response from Sean, I failed. What did I do wrong? I was highly surprised when Jay-Z mentioned my name for his Blueprint III album. That made my day.

  • Jayceon Terrell Taylor

    When Tony Yayo came back home from doing time in 2005, I felt really jealous. I knew then my time with G-Unit will soon be a demise. When he came out, I've noticed 50 giving more attention to his homeboy more than me. I felt very envious and I couldn't handle the pain. I shed so many tears that night and I jerked off to 50 Cent giving me the best ass fucking any man could have handled. The next day, I got in contact with Dr. Dre, and we made the song "Dreams" from my debut album "The Documentary". I then thought stole 50 Cents line "I had dreams of fucking an R&B bitch like Mya", but in actuality, I thought about fucking Curtis.

  • Jayceon Terrell Taylor

    I'm more involved with the LAPD than Curtis is with the NYPD. I should Stop Snitchin' and Stop Lyin'!

  • Jayceon Terrell Taylor

    I can't help to admit that I actually have more love for 50 Cent than my own children.

  • Jayceon Terrell Taylor

    When Curtis (50 Cent) kicked me out of his group, I felt heart broken. I wanted to kill myself from all the agony and misery I went through after being betrayed from the biggest groups of hip-hop. When I found out the same thing happened to David (Young Buck), I got in contact with Buck and me and my Black Wall Street gang and his Outlaw crew had a gay orgy the following weekend. After it was all said and done, me and David were laying down on the bed and his head was on my chest as he was crying when he thought about Curtis. We both cried ourselves to sleep that night because we both went through the same thing.

  • Jayceon Terrell Taylor

    When I was in G-Unit, I tried to give Lloyd Banks a strip show when we were alone together in the studio for the making of the song "When The Chips Are Down" from his debut album "Hunger For More".

  • Jayceon Terrell Taylor

    Every night before I go to sleep, I think about 50's dick being shoved down my throat.

  • Jayceon

    I'm a faggot. I wish David (Young Buck) would fuck me in the butt.

      Black Wall Street is an Independent label. Mainstream influence is contaminating the culture and desensitizing the pain of the ghetto and he's preserving the theory of quantifying struggle. If you disagree with his antics or politics then you're in a stubborn state of contradiction. Game is one of the few artists that I personally support. Neverminding his grammatical errors, Hip Hop is built on revolutionizing the English Language and the conventionalism behind it.

    As if HHDX didn't have enough spelling & grammatical errors. With this dude as editor, everything's getting fucked up. Have you seen Game's twitter?

    The Game's R.E.D. Album arrives, limping and bloodied, in stores this week. The culmination of three years of development, innumerable push-backs, and a humiliating trail of failed first singles, the occasion of its release feels less a victory lap than a death spasm; Interscope Records has finally given up and decided to cut its losses. The remaining crowd of message-board lurkers can now click "download" on the .rar file and move on with their lives. And Game now owes his record label an unimaginable amount of money: the "R.E.D." in the album's title might stand for deficit-column ink. Indeed, The R.E.D. Album might go down in history as the costliest losing battle a rapper has ever waged against his own irrelevance. Game's albums have always been community affairs, and The R.E.D. Album is no exception: the guest roster this time is the most crowded ever. But no amount of shared pushing can get the doomed project off the ground, and hearing a murderer's row of collaborators—including Drake, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Big Boi, Young Jeezy, Beanie Sigel, Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, The Creator and even Dr. Dre—step up and pitch their talents into the void over the album's interminable 21-track expanse is one of the year's most dispiriting experiences. The all-consuming vacuum at the center of The R.E.D. Album is Game himself. Once upon a time, he could be counted on for simple pleasures—a gruff voice, a doggedly plowing delivery, a satisfying way with West Coast gangsta boilerplate. His embarrassing, clumsy namedropping, shrill neediness, and arm's-length relationship to reality were lamentable, but mostly ignorable. Since then, however, he has pulled some basic coherence muscle, and now everything he bellows is irredeemably goofy. Even the minor pretext that used to link his pointless name-drops has evaporated, so now we get lyrics like: "I click-clack at you and fuck with your conscience like backpackers do/But I ain't Talib Kweli, Black Thought or Mos Def/ But I see the most deaths." Or: "Wayne just came home, and T.I.P. back on the yard, dog/ Guess Pujols ain't the only one playing hardball." Worse, he has exaggerated his tendency to mimic the rappers he surrounds himself with: on "Paramedics," he alters not just his flow and cadence but also the tone and grain of his voice to uncannily resemble guest Young Jeezy. Why would anyone do this? He does it again on "Speakers on Blast," high-stepping his vowels and clipping his consonants neatly like Big Boi, who shows up later in the song to gripe ironically about style biters. On "Martians vs. Goblins," he grouses like an angry teenager next to Tyler, the Creator. On "All The Way Gone," Game even deigns to ape Wale's flow. For his part, Wale seems so flattered by the experience that he delivers his first truly lively verse in an eon. The production, meanwhile, consists of a bunch of region-less, facelessly competent Any Bangers that could have plausibly made it onto any B-level hip-hop album of the last six years. A few could have been something—the huge, clattering horn loop "Ricky"; the wailing soul beat of "Good Girls Go Bad"—but alas, they are on a Game album, where relentlessly shopped-around tracks go to die. Game has long been praised for his shrewd ear for production, but when you have no idea what to do with any of it, the riches around you cease to have meaning. Three songs on The R.E.D. Album hit their mark. On DJ Premier's "Born In The Trap" and the Pharrell-produced "Mama Knows," Game keeps his head down, stays in the pocket, and simply raps hard and on-beat for the duration. It works. On the DJ Khalil cut "Drug Test" (co-produced and buffed to sheen by Dr. Dre), he rattles off a catchy sing-song verse that gets caught like gum in the song's grinding gears. It reminds you of the strengths that got him signed to Aftermath to begin with: ferocious commitment, a palpable love of hip-hop, a great voice. When there is a firm hand reining him in, Game can still make good rap music. Left to his own devices, however, he produces a dismaying mess. This might explain why Game has carried the torch for Dre so desperately since his exile to Geffen in 2006; the man needs someone to save him from himself.

    • YES, YOU ARE

      YOU ARE FULL OF SHIT

      Worse, he has exaggerated his tendency to mimic the rappers he surrounds himself with: on "Paramedics," he alters not just his flow and cadence but also the tone and grain of his voice to uncannily resemble guest Young Jeezy. Why would anyone do this? Question of the year

    • Jake

      Great comment even though I don't agree with you 40% of that.

  • 50 cent

    ayo taylor i think its a good idea. For the first time of my life im not gonna be hatin loool . Well so okay DX its very original im callin you right to fuck u like i did with dat mofukin zionist shyne. Oh and i was kiddin, FUCK YOU GAME!!! lol but its a good idea to get a rapper editor though btw ur album was shit. Plz back to dr advocate and stop sucking dre fuck u all

  • Got a suggestion

    you should interview Tyler the Creator, and ask him why he continues to diss Bruno Mars, who's an R&B singer, but he's too hard to respond Hopsin, who is a rapper...

  • sun_god7

    Conflict of Interest! lol! RED album gets a great review the week that the GAME is the guest hiphopdx editor.

  • Roc

    Game clearly has the most fans on here......haters and all. u are all fans other wise u haters wouldnt even check his music or shit yall would just bypass the nigga but u cant,,,,ur fans.

  • Miguel Thomas

    Yo we love Game down here in Venezuela. He's one of the few new artists we really fuck with like that down here. I'm glad to see DX have some more interactive shit with hip hop as opposed to just reviewing and informing. This is a good look. I want to see more of it. Game should work with some Venezuelan rappers and get his international on.

  • Andrew Rockwood

    Yo, I respect Game. He's a good lyricist. I don't think he's bipolar, I think he likes to fuck around a lot and sometimes says dumb shit...R.E.D. is hot but the production and flows Wayne has, especially teamed up wit Drizzy, I can't see it being hotter than C4...but Wayne needs to step it up. Watch the Throne will be the best album this year...Take Care will be hotter than C4 and RED

  • Mase

    mf doom and lil b collaboration album would be out of this world.....weird meets weirder.

  • Fado

    (this comment isn't related too this article, HipHop dx should have hiphop chatrooms get the people more involved) We will never see the holy grail album of HipHop....A collaboration album with Tupac and Biggie. Tupac and Biggie trading verses over ski beatz and Dr.Dre production. This is the year of the collaboration. As far as today's artist I want too see a Jay electronica Lupe fiasco collaboration album. Who do yall wanna see do a collaboration album?

  • Hip Hop Head

    C4 will sell alot because Wayne always has so much hype. Even when he puts out a garbage song like "How To Love", people are STILL on his dick. Im not hatin' on Wayne dont get it twisted, I've been followin him since Tha Block Is Hot. C3 sold as much as it did because Wayne took so long to drop it. It was a long period between C2 and C3. C2 is by far his best album. R.E.D. should definitely sell more than C4. I dont give a fuck what ANYONE says. In my eyes, R.E.D. will be better. The intro song with Kendrick Lamar is reckless! Just after hearing that song I knew it would be a classic album. "Paramedics" wit Jeezy, "Mama Knows" with Nelly Furtado, "Martians Vs Goblins" with Wayne & Tyler, "Born In The Trap", "Ricky", "Heavy Artillery" cmon now!

My question is hows he gonna do that with no hit song as a single? Plus he's starting to turn into DJ khaled and Rick Ross with the guest appearances and shit.

  • Keezie

    I agree w/our guest editor. Dudes act like rappers disrespected their families when they hear something they don't like. Bloggers need hugs more than any1. Enjoy music for what it is. If you don't just move on.

    I'm hopin Game hit about 400,000 first week. More would be great. The most reasonable first week numbers could be from 200,000 to 300,000. Watch the Throne will dominate for another week but after that Game has a good chance at no 1.

    • JFranks

      Dude, not a chance. At all.

    • Fado

      why is everyone gettin on homie about this comment. He want Games album too do well because obviously hes a Game fan dumb shits. If you like a rapper and think the music he makes is good you want to see them be successful. Just like me I hope J.coles debut sells ALOT cus thats my nigga. With that being said I personally think R.E.D. is gonna sell around 200k. As far as him being number 1 that's highly unlikely. Maybe had he dropped RED at a different time....Anyway RED was a good album it had Ok songs and it had a couple really good songs.

      1. Dr. Dre Intro – This shit was mad unnecessary b. 2. The City (ft. Kendrick Lamar) – This shit is jus way too dramatic yo. Son sounds like he was listenin to Nas’s One Mic for like a month straight before he went into the booth to spit this shit son. The nigga sounds like he swallowed Crooked I or Royce Da 5’9 or some shit. Not sure which one…but I swear he usin another niggas flow tho. Then the nigga got the nerve to say he Top 5 dead or alive. Son…. Niggas laugh at Jadakiss for sayin shit like that….n that nigga could actually spit at one point namsayin. But he aint done makin ridiculous claims son. Its like he tryin to test a niggas patience when he says some shit bout bein the black Slim Shady. But then son starts to REALLY lose his composure n says he “the best the West ever seen, no disrespect to Calvin”. Best what nigga? Son….you disrespectin a whole lot more niggas than jus Calvin nahmean. I wont go thru the WHOLE list son…but summa the niggas Im talmbout got names you mighta heard before…like Oshea n TUPAC….maybe even ANDRE. But thats a whole nother topic namsayin. Not to mention that the nigga doin the hook…who also hails from the West… ends the song by completely bodyin the beat. Im sayin the beat actually hid from the nigga n jus disappeared while son was spittin. So after all ya talk bout bein top 5 n bein the black Eminem you gon jus let Kendrick rape you on the track son? If I was you Jayceon…I woulda been told the nigga to get the fuck out the studio and dont come back til he could mediocre his shit up a little. 3. Drug Test (ft. Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg & Sly) – Speak of the devil yo…the OTHER best niggas the West ever produced….This joint been out for a minute yo. Matter fact I think its the latest single. Thing is yo…I dont kno how you get Dre n Snoop on a joint wit you n the shit barely makes a peep on the radio or in clubs namsayin. Imma tell you why tho. Cos the shit is mediocre as fuck b. When you got the two niggas who made G-Thang n Next Episode n Still D.R.E. on a joint wit you…you cant be droppin no filler that sounds like some shit Timbaland was snappin his neck(s) n splashin his fruit punch all over the studio to durin the Black Album sessions son. 4. Martians Vs Goblins (ft. Tyler The Creator & Lil Wayne) – Heres the thing bout this nigga son. When he go into another nigga chamber he go straight to jockin that nigga shit. Its been that way since day 1 tho nahmean. He was doin joints wit 50 Cent…he sounded like Fif. He did a joint wit Eminem…son got his Slim Shady on all over that muthafucka. He do joints wit Nas…he all a sudden spittin like Nas. He do a joint wit Rae…he soundin like Rae. Im sayin this nigga never bring his own identity to the table. So when he decides to start surfin the Tyler wave…you already kno what this nigga gon be doin namsayin. Then he throws Lil Weezy-Ana on this shit n we spose to have some mindblowin shit happenin here I guess. Son talmbout slurpin on Erykah Badu box n pokin Bron Bron’s moms n shit. All that shit is whatever but this nigga said “when Im wit my uncle…fuck it…then Im a Crip too” which lets you kno how serious he is bout this Blood life. I cant fuck wit this shit tho. 5. Red Nation (ft. Lil Wayne) – This joints probably the only shit so far that I feel like listenin to again. Its been out for a minute so I actually heard this a couple times already nahmean. But at least the nigga jus stayin in his lane doin his own thing here. Yeah he droppin names like a fuckin prison snitch all over this muthafucka….I mean the first verse sounds like “Im so____ like____mixed wit____. I kno____…whattup to_____, _______ , n _______!” ….but I fucks wit it. 6. Dr. Dre 1 – yawn…. 7. Good Girls Go Bad (ft. Drake) – Say you a nigga who happened to make some pretty suspect choices throughout ya life…like bein a hood Chippendale dancer n gettin butterflies n stars tatted on ya face n cryin durin interviews when nobody asked you nothin to get emotional bout….shit like that. Now lets say you wanna do a song wit a nigga who a lotta muthafuckas believe is like the livin embodiment of bein a suspect nigga. A nigga whose natural scent is pear. A nigga that practically bleeds syrup. A nigga whose own moms aint even realize was a boy n named the muthafucka Aubrey….say this is you. Do you really wanna go namin the joint you doin together “Good Girls Go Bad” b? Anyway this joint aint bad. Drizzy on his “blah blah blah guuuuurrl” shit again n droppin heatrocks like “I love ya ass like the Ninja Turtles love pizza”. Game on his namedroppin shit. Im sayin tho….son mentioned jus Kanye alone three times b. Anyway I fucks wit it. 8. Ricky – This shit named after the nigga in Boyz N The Hood who wasnt Ice Cube or Cuba Gooding Jr. Rite off the bat I wanna say that the nigga DJ Khalil laced this muthafuckin beat wit steroids yo. This shit sound like gorillas beatin they chests wit sledge hammers b. This shit sound like its rainin watermelons in the studio. Theres broads screamin n lightning bolts shootin outta shit n violins n elephants stampedin on this muthafucka n whatever… The nigga Game aint really sayin nobody names either so I got give him some dap for that too. Word. I fucks wit it. 9. The Good, The Bad, The Ugly – Thought it was Dre rhymin on this shit at first yo. If I was bein generous Id say this shit was aight nahmean. But on the real….I dont really give a fuck bout this song son. 10. Heavy Artillery (ft. Rick Ross & Beanie Sigel) – This shit is ill. The beat is tough as fuck nahmean. Ricky Rozay goes first n spits some hardbody darts rite out the gate. Next Game comes in n drops one a his better 16s n manages to keep niggas names out his mouth for 75% of the verse. Then the Broad Street Bully comes in n bodies this shit. I fucks wit it. 11. Paramedics (ft. Young Jeezy) – I swear I couldnt even tell if Game was even on this shit at first b. I had to listen to it twice yo. This nigga mussa been garglin sand before Jeezy got to the studio to get his voice to sound extra raspy tho nahmean. This shit was jus mad awkward g. Wonder how Jeezy felt bout that shit when he heard it yo. Somebody need to explain to this nigga that you aint gotta go outta ya way to impersonate the nigga you doin the song wit tho b. This shit was fucked up son. Snowman did his thing tho. I kinda fucks wit it….not really tho. 12. Speakers On Blast (ft. E-40 & Big Boi) – N here we go again wit that bullshit. Son channelin his inner 3 Stacks on this shit like he tryna impress Big Boi. The hook is some ATLiens shit too. This startin to remind me a some Single White Female shit tho. Stop it 5. I pressed skipped before I heard the 40 Fonzarelli bars…so I cant really comment on that yo. 13. Hello (ft. Lloyd) – First off I jus wanna say that I dont fuck wit no Lloyd son. Justin Bieber got a more masculine voice than this nigga here namsayin. N Lloyd a grown man b. Drake at his most effeminate state possible…walkin round his garden singin duets wit canaries n strokin kittens….cant even sound this bitchmade son. If a baby flamingo opened its mouth to say whattup to me I would expect that muthafucka to sound jus like this nigga Lloyd b. If vaginas could sing they would probably sound EXACTLY like this nigga Lloyd yo. Even El Debarge be sayin this niggas shit is too soft nahmean. Son aint got one molecule of bass in his voice whatsoever namsayin. The shit is jus creepy my nigga. The joint itself is jus way too got damn silky yo. I can almost see the dandelions gettin blown around in the studio when niggas was recordin this shit b. How many Nuvo body shots did these niggas do off each other before they came up wit this shit son? Get this shit the fuck outta here yo. 14. All The Way Gone (ft. Mario & Wale) – Guess this spose to be the part of the album where all the panty droppin starts…cos this joint is almost as corny as the last one b. Only thing that keeps it from bein more ass than the Hello joint is the nigga Mario aint sound bitchmade like Lloyd. The nigga Wale on this shit too. Yall probably remember him as Future from 8 Mile. Anyways…skip. 15. Pot Of Gold (ft. Chris Brown) – This shit rite here is exactly what you would expect from the two most emotional n mentally unstable niggas in the game….some melodramatic boo hoo shit wit Breezy singin bout not dancin on rainbows no more or whatever n Game threatenin to quit rap after two more albums (he actually said that after the first two albums son…n promised he was done after the third…but whatever yo). This was actually the first official single after the other first official singles he dropped last year. I cant even tell you how much I dont fucks wit this shit tho son. 16. Dr Dre 2 – Seriously…is this shit even necessary b? 17. All I Know (ft. Lu Breeze) – Son…I almost aint even make it past the suspect ass intro. This shit obviously reminds me a litttle of Jigga’s All I Need….not in a good way tho. I dont hate this joint but probably aint no way Im gon ever skip to #17 n try n hear this shit again on purpose. 18. Born In The Trap – DJ PREMIER-P-P-P-Premiere did this shit! BUT…let me clarify yo. This aint the Preemo that did the beats for 5 classic Gang Starr albums n had probably the best joints on Reasonable Doubt, Illmatic n Ready To Die son….this is the Premier that cant get beats placed on Jay or Nas albums no more n been gettin shitted on by Kanye for the past 5 years. Niggas use to be like “PREEM LEMME GET A BEAT PLEASE YO!!! I GOT YA 30 Gs RITE HERE SON”. Now niggas is like “Shit…that nigga Preemo sendin me links to his SoundCloud again….”. I love that nigga Preem tho. Thats my heart. N this joint is still A LOT better than the bullshit we been hearin over the last 6 or 7 tracks b. I fucks wit it. 19. Mama Knows (ft. Nelly Furtado) – He got my baby’s mama Nelly Furtado on this joint…so props for that shit b. Anyways yo…theres three different Pharrells son. There the nigga that did Grindin n Hell Hath No Fury n Blue Magic n whatever. Aka the nigga that dont give a fuck bout melodies n song hooks n jus hits you wit that raw shit. Then theres the bongo happy Pharrell who had all those hits in the 00s wit pretty much eybody that was in the music industry at that time nahmean. Then theres the Pharrell that conned Jay into thinkin Allure was the shit that shoulda been playin at the end a Carlito’s Way….the nigga that makes those Nyquil joints that make you feel like you wanna call it a day at 11am. The Pharrell that made this shit aint the first two. Ayo Skateboard P…son gets ya logo tatted on hisself n started dressin like you n THIS is all you came up wit for this nigga? This shit aint grimey OR catchy son. This shit is the snooze button that lets you kno you can go back to sleep for a couple minutes. Dont listen to this shit when you behind the wheel b. Fair warning. 20. California Dream – Guess you can wake back up now! This beat kinda fly rite here….I think I fucks wit….oh wait. Hold up a minute…..oh wait this nigga tellin you the whole damn story bout when another one a his kids was born b. Son. You been done this shit already. This shit wont ever be my favorite joint on the album. But I guess I fucks wit it. 21. Dr Dre Outro – This shit jus sounds stupid comin in at the end son. I feel like Im spose to be turnin the shit over to listen to the other side. Sounds like a damn intro….Anyways son basically took 2 minutes of Dre speakin on him n split it up into 4 tracks on his album. Cant respect that type of Stannin b. Overall Imma give this shit 2.5 Zeus slaps outta 5. After he got off to a bullshit start I thought he was gettin on a roll there for a minute…but then he jus started drownin in a ocean of estrogen n teardrops. Its like the album had a change a heart son. I cant really fuck wit none a that shit par. Thats all I got for yall niggas. Aight peace.

  • ....

    Great, so we're going to be reading a whole bunch of awesome articles such as, "Jay-Z, more like Gay-Z", "R.E.D. album is a masterpiece", "Weezy is a genius", and "Jay-Z sucks ass" This is going to be a terrible week for this site. Used to be a fan Game; Documentary, Doctor's Advocate, and L.A.X. were great, but now i could give a shit about you.

  • Obi Patrick

    I for one I'm very excited to see an artist that is true to hip hop actually control the flow of information and give us some real news. It's about time besides we all know how lame these editors are snatching uninspiring irrelevant gossip and passing it off as news....

  • game-hater

    fuck you game, I hate you!

    • Seánieg

      Haha why did he ride ur girl or something? Jesus why is everyone gettin so menstrual about him being editor, so what if he is... the guy hasnt wrote an article yet and people are already sayin its a joke him being editor. Fairly ridiculous comments, its only music!

    as soon as possible! GAMETIME

  • Crystal

    I love it...and I am one of Game's biggest fans....Come me Miss Stanley if you like...but don't bash me for my tastes....I think this guy gets so much hate for no reason...He gives his fans and non fans so much free music and you guys complaint and hate...instead supporting him going out and buying that CD for $9.99...cheap azzes always want something for nothing....Love the Cds and Love the Mixtapes...do I like every song? No, but I support his style and 9-10 most of his music will go down in history with the rest of the rap legends...He has a collection of memorable music from his disses, his 100-500 bars n running to his albums.....go cop that RED mines been pre-ordered!

ALBUM SINCE SUNDAY LISTENED TO IT FROM BEGINNING TO END AND NOT TO GET GAME's FANS ALL ROWDY UP BUT YALL ARE GOING TO BE DISAPPOINTED FOR BUYING THE ALBUM IT'S NOT AN CLASSIC FAR FROM IT...THE ALBUM IS AIGHT BUT FAR AWAY FROM BEING HIS BEST WORK PUT OUT...ALL THE MIXTAPES HE PUT OUT BEFORE THIS ALBUM ARE SHITTING ON THE R.E.D. ALBUM REAL TALK...AN I DON'T SEE THIS ALBUM DOING BIG NUMBERS IF IT DOES IT'S MOST LIKELY DUE TO OVER SEA SALES...IT'S ALOT OF WEAK ASS TRACKS ON THE ALBUM WHICH DON'T EVEN SEEM LIKE SOMETHING COMING FROM GAME & IT'S ALOT OF TRACKS YOUR GOING WANT TO SKIP OVER AS WELL...WITH THAT SAID THE ALBUM AT IT'S BEST IS AT LEAST AN 3.5 NO WHERE NEAR AN 4 OR 5...IT WAS AN BIG DISAPPOINTMENT TO ME BUT LOOKING AT THE TRACKLIST I KNEW IT WASN'T GOING TO BE FIRE ALL THE WAY THRU...JUST LETTING THE PEOPLE KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT

  • L-Boogie

    Lol, this should be interesting.

  • Rowan Vermeulen

    "Try not to hate on anything this week on HipHopDX.com" He has a point there, I would really like to read some positive and intellectual posts on this site for a change. This probably means that Lil B fans are not going to be satisfied with this site for the upcoming week.

  • James Clay Longmire

    No wonder the album got such high reviews on here! hahahaha
