The genesis of Game's career was both a blessing and a curse. He himself raps that few legacies have started "hotter than the beginning of my career/ with 50, Dre and Em there." However the helping hand would also bring persistent doubts, claims that Game's success is replicable for any rhymer who has an album of Dr. Dre's beats, 50 Cent's hooks and a track blessed by Eminem. While Doctor's Advocate was a step in the right direction, L.A.X. proves once and for all that The Game's success is defined solely by his skill.

On L.A.X. Game successfully demonstrates that he is the most legitimately hardcore rapper in mainstream hip-hop today. On "L.A.X. Files" he questions even his audience's credibility, "(expletive) think cause they watched Menace a couple of times/ Seen Cube in Boyz N the Hood and pressed rewind/ That you could survive when a real Crip run up on your car and flex the nine." The trifecta of "State of Emergency" featuring Ice Cube, " Bulletproof Diaries" with Raekwon and "Cali Sunshine" featuring Bilal are perhaps the three most classically "West coast" tracks that will be recorded in 2008. Game then demonstrates his versatility on laid back cuts including "Gentleman's Affair," "Touchdown" and "Angel," the last of which represents G.O.O.D. music at its finest with production by Kanye West and a verse from Common.

L.A.X. also proves that The Game may be the best actor in rap today. We've seen this ability through his simulated inebriation on both the title track from "Doctor's Advocate" and The Documentary's "Start From Scratch," and there was another allusion to this ability when Game presented an uncanny emulation of his mentor on "Lookin' at You." Game takes it to another level on L.A.X.

*Albums Review*

I would have to say im not a big fan of the mainstream hip hop that is coming out but The Game has been able to keep my attention by dropping good music and being consistent, which is the area most mainstream rappers lack in. Thank god for Game, one of the few rappers keeping the mainstream alive. Both The Documentary and The Doctors Advocate get praise from me for being enjoyable albums. Even though lyrically Game is average, his flow, voice, style and ability to make good sounding music keep me checking for his albums.

The Good:
Now on this his third album i was really surprised by a few joints and some of the guest features, like Common for example. I have been a long time fan of Common and i never would have thought that Game and Common would fit together on a track so perfectly. Raekwon also comes out and outshines Game lyrically but it still makes a dope song. I would honestly have to say Bulletproof Diaries and Angel are some of the best hip hop songs i have heard in recent years from both underground and mainstream hip hop. Other enjoyable songs would be LAX Files, Money, Never Can Say Goodbye, Letter To The King (both Nas and Game are ill here) and State Of Emergency. But i think a personal favorite would have to be Dope Boys, this track was what i wanted, a hard booming track. Lyrically i think Game lays down some nice rhymes here. But like i said before Game is average lyrically although i see some potential, seeing that he cares about the legends in hip hop and shows respect, which is where lots of new rappers lose points from me because they seem to think legends are irrelevant and worthless. But either way Game just makes "Good Music"

The Bad:
I was very upset to see people like Lil Wayne and Neyo on this album.

The Game - L.A.X.
Right, you got this 2 weeks ago and I got Eminem's new CD about a month ago.

Most of them are singers who sing on the hooks; I think he keeps most of the sixteen bars to himself, though.

I think Game's L.A.X. might actually sell well.
I have to agree, I love all of the singles from this upcoming album. Game's Pain, Dope Boys and My Life are all awesome tracks
