    Documentary is one of the best 2000 era hip hop albums. The production on it is straight fire and features are blasting. But u cant remake a classic just with the best producers on the game. We need Fif, Em, Dre, Cube and those other veterans for the features. Hope this gonna be better sequel than the MMLP2 wich was trash compared to the first MMLP.

    My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,, =================== ===================

  • Its Um

    No need for a sequel to the first just a album with 90% you, leave the heavy features for mixtapes.

    Sequels is a lack of creativity especially from someone like The Game. Every nigga is using this marketing strategy to sell albums. Game is a typical rapper who steals and bites everyting from ohrer rappers: - flows, voices - idea's - concepts - etc. Game is just a bullshit rapper but he kid 12 year old kids like him and think he is really a hardcore gangbanger

    • RealTalk89

      if you're the original anon. firstly your not going to talk about any of your other points I put to bed hey? And he does. especially if you are talking about him as a gangsta rapper and if you take many of his mixtapes into account. Go and listen then get a clue. LOLOLOLOL. Smart argument. You 12?

    • Anonymous

      "game has more original concepts throughout his discography than many rappers." LOLOLOLOLOL

    • RealTalk89

      Firstly, naming an album as a part 2 or sequel doesn't limit the creativity. Like many previous album sequels have just followed on and shit from the previous album? like they are connected thematically? like they are making part 2s of every song from before. give me a break. Secondly, no ideas original, but game has more original concepts throughout his discography than many rappers. haven't heard much hey? "really a hardcore gangbanger" - like every other rapper who claims to be hard? Fool

    I can't wait for this fucking album it will go gold guaranteed.

    Game continues to put out quality music. He is one of the few artists who makes good songs(good beats, chorus, and good enough lyrics). Thats what were missing today. We still have a plethora of lyricists, but production is not even close to up to what it was in the early 2000s. Game picked this young guy SAP who is 23 and damn good, and has always had great beats to go with his raps

    50 and yayo were the only unit members who got features on that album. Anyone who has listened to his music throughout his career knows that his ear for beats is second to none.

    The Game plays with fire. To do a sequel it requires more than just this trash talk. Dre, Just Blaze, Storch and Game it won't be enough. The Documentary was released in the particular era where it fitted perfectly with the momenmut 50 Cent and G-Unit created. Also the motivation, hunger, and 50 Cent's abilities and ear to beat and hooks were perfect. To have the same success or to have that feeling of Documentary he really needs that G-Unit truce and features. The Documentary fell from 50% like G-Unit work. Please stay away from Eminem's dick. You are not black Marshall Matters nor any legend. Be just Game and do yourself or you are not authentic.

  • TRAP

    Lil Durk and Young Thug are the realest young rappers out there, they are the blueprint of the real niggas and here is why: - Young Thug was arrested for drug possession; - Young Thug was arrested for reckless driving; - Lil Durk was arrested on a weapons charge; - Lil Durk was arrested with a loaded .40-caliber handgun after he threw the weapon in his car when police approached; - they shoot niggas dead; - they beat niggas up; - they sold drugs; - they walk around with illegal weapons; - they go out gunning; - all other rappers rap about being gangster, shooting and killing, but they haven't done it. They ain't no fantasy niggas like: 1. Mobb Deep were 12 / 14 years old when they met at the school of arts. 2. Nas "Escobar" raps about how he is a queens thug, but he wasn't. Lol, nigga only had a ticket for parking his car wrong. So you sold dope? Nigga, the only thing you sold is records. 3. 2Pac never gangbanged 4. Ice Cube was bullied at school and this guy calls himself a "G"? 5. Game was never in a gang and he never gangbanged. He is a phony and talks in his lyrics about his brother who is a real banger. Lol, nigga was a male stripper! 6. Eminem raps about killing - he hasn't. He says he hates gay people, but did a song with Elton John? 7. Jay Z raps in open letter about sending shots - he hasn't. Nigga, you never hustled, fucking liar! People in Brooklyn tell other stories... 8. Most of the rappers rap about stuff they haven't done, yet you all support them and say it's real rap. 9. When Rick Ross does it you all claim he is fake and say it's fake rap. This shows that hip hop fans are hypocritical and all these real hip hop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. I never heard your favorite rapper (50 Cent, Jay-Z, Nas, Mobb Deep, Ice Cube, The Game, etc.) diss Lil Durk or Young Thug, because your favorite rapper knows that they will beat him up. Wack or not Lil Durk and Young Thug are the realest young niggas in the rap game and that's a fact. They were drug dealers and gang members before rappers. They have street credentials, they are the only rappers who rap about facts. Your favorite rapper wants to be as real as Young Thug or Lil Durk. That's how real niggas do it. They ain't nothing to fuck with!

    • kdot

      you know why my favourite rappers (Kendrick , 50 Cent , Game etc.) don't diss "rappers" like Lil Durk and Young Thug ??? Because they not worth it , and as far as i know Game murdered Lil Dork on Chiraq to LA remix if you haven't heard it you said they murderers and shit but yet they wear skinny jeans and leggings and sing with autotune like bitches ???!!!

    If it doesn't have Timbo & Hi-tek included it wouldn't be much of a sequel. That Timbo produced single on the one first is a classic banger, without him having one produce track isn't worth calling a sequel of a first documentary. Him and Hi-tek always have a hot track; runnin', old english, 1-800 homicide, and letter to the king.
