5.0 out of 5 stars Provides Insight to what's behind the music! August 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is something you should read while you're listening to Game's The R.E.D. Album track by track. Having the album play in the background while you read each chapter (Each track is a chapter) makes the album and the book all the better.

It's not very long, I easily read it in under an hour. But it really puts each track together and makes you appreciate Game even more as an artist. He really does care about hip-hop and you will understand that once you read this.

Game gets a lot of flack for whatever reason but if you think Game is just some hardcore gangbanger who name-drops all the time, you should really check this out. To the non-Game fans, its a real insider on how he views his life, hip-hop, his family, the people he works with, etc. It should open your eyes to how much he puts into his music and shut up the ignorant people who just write Game off.

Hip-hip is much more deep than people make it out to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Real "G" in "G-Unit" November 28, 2011
By Stan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can remember when 50 dropped Game from G-Unit. A lot of people predicted that he wouldn't last. Well, G-Unit and 50 are no longer in regular rotation, except for their hits, but Game is still respected in the industry, especially on the West Coast. Honestly, I am not a big Game fan, but it was interesting to read how he was so involved in making his album. From choosing artists, helping to seal deals to chosing the sequening, he definitely wanted to ensure that his presence was felt in all aspects. How he listened to beats, then wrote songs (instead of finding beats for a song that he wrote) was surprising. I guess once you're a couple of albums deep in the game (no pun intended) with a talent for freestyling, you can make classic tracks for your fans easily. I definitely liked how he openly paid so much homage to the likes of Dre, Wayne, Snoop and others. Some rappers' egos will not let them show, not even for an instance, that they are fans of other artist. While I felt Game could have lowered his hard more to show more insight, this book was definitely an entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little read. March 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wish more artists especially hip hop artists would put the extra effort into explaining what goes on during the recoding process of these albums. Game does a great job of telling the story of the R.E.D. Album and it has become all the more appealing to listen to after the fact.
