Biography

GAME went from Gangsta to great musician right before our eyes. He recharged legendary west coast captain Dr. Dre, delivering the producer’s last true Cali-themed classic in “The Documentary” and then took it upon himself to keep West Coast hip-hop relevant – #1 hit single, #1 album and $20 million-dollar film role at a time.

His official foray into Hip Hop, ... Read more in Amazon's The Game Store

Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the West Coast rapper produced by Dr. Dre and Pharrell. Includes the single 'Pot Of Gold' (featuring Chris Brown). Coming straight outta Compton, LA, snarky Jayceon Taylor is the most popular West Coast rapper since the heydays of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. His major label debut The Documentary sold over 500,000 copies in its first week and was eventually certified double platinum.

Customer Reviews

'The R.E.D. Album' is, without a doubt, Game's best album to date.
DM
The R&B tracks really seem out of place here however and the album goes a little to long but that cannot drag this release down.
Kid Red
See Kanye says allot of stupid things that may make people dislike him but his music is undeniably good.

Game has now stated on a few occasions - including within the lyrics of "The City", the opening track of 'The R.E.D. Album' - what an anguishing ordeal and process it has been for him to have his fourth studio album completed and released. Well, all I can say after having finally heard the finished product for myself is, hard work pays off.

'The R.E.D. Album' is, without a doubt, Game's best album to date. Every sigle song is hot. In my opinion, while his past two releases were good, that's all they were - "good". I honestly felt like Game was trying a bit too hard on 'LAX' to impress and/or to live up to his own hype. On this album, however, he seems completely authentic - he isn't trying to impress anybody anymore; he's just doing his own thing now. And he has finally shown his true talent. His flows over every single banging beat - which range from gritty and grimy to polished and smooth - are perfect and he has proven that he's evolved into a real lyricist, as Game spits some great metaphorical lines. Whether he's rapping about his California lifestyle or the birth of his new baby girl, Game is so on top of his own game that you will only be taken aback by the artist he's become.

Guest appearances include Lil Wayne, Jeezy, Rick Ross, Tyler the Creator and Bun B. among others. Honestly, none of these emcees hinder the track on which they spit. I was a bit "meh" when I first read that some of these names were associated with Game's album, but each and every one of them were on-point. They all nailed it.

What else can I say? Well, Game has heart. 'The R.E.D. Album' doesn't consist solely of gangsta ish. The emcee goes into more depth than ever before about his life growng up - namely about his parents and his brothers.

4 1/2 stars.

It's been 3 long years since Game's last album, LAX. Hip Hop has seen many kings return with albums (Eminem with "Relapse" and "Recovery", Jay-Z with "Blueprint 3" and "Watch the Throne", Kanye West with "My Beautiful Dark..." and "Watch the Throne" to name a few). It was becoming Detox Jr but the R.E.D. Album is finally here. I must admit, after hearing his numerous attempts at singles with songs like Shake, Ain't No Doubt About It, and others...I was very worried that Game was going down a bad path. However, I could not be more pleased with his effort on RED.

It's only fair that I let you know how I rated Game's previous three efforts. I give Doctor's Advocate an A, Documentary an A-, and LAX a B+. Documentary was a dope entrance, but far from the classic that others call it. It lacked big time with songs like How We Do and Higher, which were sub-par at best. Doctor's Advocate is hands down my favorite Game album. He lyrically improved from his 1st and 2nd albums, and took a darker tone throughout Doctor's Advocate. Finally, while LAX was a good album, I was left a bit flat with songs like Touchdown, Money, Let Us Live, etc. Still, LAX had many great tracks, including Angel which may be one of his best songs to date. That brings us to R.E.D. Album.

Track-by-Track review

1. DR. DRE INTRO- No rating, but I like the fact that Game is back with Dre.

2. THE CITY- 10/10- Great opening track. Game really knows how to open an album, and spits heat straight out of the gate on The City. Lamar drops a nice spoken hook, and manages to hold his own. Game drops fierce and angry bars about his critics of his last album LAX. Hands down, one of the best tracks on the album.

3. DRUG TEST- 8/10- This song may leave some feeling flat.

This might be Game's most lyrical album yet.For me it's not quite as good as Doctor's Advocate(hands down my favorite Game album).But it's definitly better then LAX,which was still a good album.It might even be neck and neck with the Documentary.You can put this cd in and let it play through right to the end and enjoy every minute of it.Even as the pace of the album slows down around track 12,I still don't find myself wanting to skip any songs.Game is bringing back what so many other rappers are not doing anymore and that is storytelling.On tracks like Ricky and The Good,The Bad,The Ugly,Game is painting pictures that the listeners can actually visualize in their minds.Not to ramble on and on with this but if you are a fan of real Hip-Hop music,go out and get this album.I garuntee you won't be dissapointed.

My Top 5:
Born in the Trap
Martians vs Goblins
The City
Ricky

Game has many albums, the documentary, doctor's advocate, lax, and now this one. (not to mention the albums before signing to aftermath or the countless mixtapes he released Purp and Patron!)

I enjoyed this album ALOT! He spent time with this one, and made sure the songs were all worthy. Yes, he's was mainly a gangsta rapper, but in reality, that time has passed us a long time ago. So rappers have to diversify themselves, and that's exactly what game HAS been doing. It's clearly evident here. And yes, he did make a few chick songs, but so what? What did PAC say, something like you gotta do songs for the ladies (ahem how do you want it?) For the critics that say Game is weak now or has gone soft, dude, take a hike and stay stuck in the 90's...

I highly reccommend this album to all my friends, and anyone who reads this post. The music is crazy, and I'm a crazy kind of person, so I can relate to the music. :)I do have my fav songs if that's what you want to know. born in the trap, martians vs goblins, the city, mama knows... they're all good to great songs, some I like more than others, but that's the way it goes. Most ppl don't like every song their fav artist puts out...

If you like Game, West Coast, or rap/hip hop music in general, you should not be dissappointed with this one...
