We get a track that ended up on the cutting room floor of Game’s upcoming album Jesus Piece.
Game gives us the sixth installment in his Sunday Service series with “Rollin” featuring Kanye West, Trae The Truth, Z-Ro, Paul Wall and Slim Thug. Jesus Piece drops on December 11th.
Game recruits Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and Tyga for this Bone Thugs-n-Harmony inspired track titled “Celebration.” If you can ignore the fact its both the clean and tagged version, it makes for a solid listen. Feel free to comment on which one of these superstars has the best verse…
Game recruits backpackers/skateboarders Lupe and Pharrell for the only interesting track that has dropped from Game’s forthcoming mixtape California Republic. The entire project will be released later today.
Matt Alonzo brings us the visuals for The Game’s newest Compton anthem off of The R.E.D. Album. The Game comes out spilling his emotions on the cold native streets that he’s tied to, but is upstaged by a rapid-fire a cappella verse from Compton counterpart Kendrick Lamar to close out the track. The Game told XXL about Kendrick’s role in “The City”:
“He sent me a verse and it was too long. So I was like, I’m gonna chop the first eight bars and just make it the hook, and at the end have that whole verse play as if the hook just was continuous. But it’s dope. That’s hip-hop. I’m a conceptual dude, so I can always see through bars and music and cut and chop and make it different. I don’t like regular format: three 16s and 8-bar hooks. I like to do different shit.”
The Game doing as much as he can to stay relevant. Looks like emulating the hoodlums of Odd Future is the direction he is choosing to go. Tyler and The Game team up in the visuals to “Martians Vs. Goblins” presented by Matt Alonso. No appearance from self proclaimed martian, Mr. Carter, in this video though.
In another all-star collaboration from The Game’s star-studded R.E.D. Album, the Compton rapper brings in Weezy for a tone-deaf hook, which is salvaged by Tyler and The Game going in on their own verses. Check out some in-studio footage of the track’s production below. August 23, 2011 will be a day to remember in rap history, with Tha Carter IV and so many others hitting stores that day.
