Product Description

Named in honor of Doctor Dre, one of The Game's mentors, his follow-up to the successful. Game releases his Doctor's Advocate Explicit version after virtually coming out of nowhere and rising to West Coast superstar status with his first album, Game is the biggest (young) California rapper out today.

Amazon.com

Despite having parted ways with former mentors 50 Cent and Dr. Dre, The Game’s follow-up to 2005's multiplatinum The Documentary doesn’t suggest he’s suffered much at their absence. The same basic elements are still here: a breathtakingly cocky attitude (he repeatedly insists that he’s on the same level as Jay-Z, Biggie, Nas, and 2Pac); versatile production by Just Blaze, Will.I.Am, Kanye West, Scott Storch, and others that should play well in the car, clubs, and earbuds; and an unabashed celebration of regionalism that may please those on the West Coast (though who knows how it will play elsewhere). The problem however is that Doctor’s Advocate feels more like "The Documentary: Part 2" than a new effort. Though The Game’s flow is sharper and more sophisticated, he still spends far too much time celebrating his greatness vis-a-vis other people, playing out this style to the point of gimmickry. That’s not to say there aren’t great moments. "Compton" is a rugged celebration of LA’s most notorious ‘hood, there’s some clever double entendre with "It’s Okay (One Blood)," and "Scream On ‘Em" is as chaotic and aggressive as the name suggests. It’s just that you wish The Game (at the tender age of 26) would learn to navel gaze less about his legacy and spend more time proving why he’s earned such a lofty self-perception. --Oliver Wang

This album Doctor's Advocate is the Bomb. I liked The Documentary but this album is something you should have if your a fan of Game. Most of the songs in this album have slow beats but the lyrics are great and they don't sound boring like some of the songs in Documentary. The best thing is he did this album without a single help from Anyone!!!!(Signed with new Label) His songs also gotta a new style, more better with people like Nas, Busta Rhymes, and Snoop Dogg in them. His songs with 50 Cent were all the same style.

The Game is back with a Brand New Style

Its Something U Gotta Have!!

My Top 5:

1. One Blood

2. Lets Ride

3. Doctor's Advocate

4. California Vacation

5. Lookin At You

I just heard the CD a few days ago, and it is serious as a heart attack. There is no doubt this CD is what hip hop is suppose to be. If it is not a classic, then it is real close to being one. Well have to wait and see. I hadn't heard The Documentary before i heard this one, but after i did, i didn't even want to mess with it after i did hear it cause Doctor's Advocate is so nice. His flow, wordplay, and delivery has gotten better since Documentary. The CD is so nice, that the song "One Blood" is only a decent song and not one of the best. For most of these so called rappers out here, that song would be there best. He is not only the aire to the Aftermath dynasty, but will carry them and the rest of the West Coast into the next decade if he keeps this up. The only negatives on the CD for me is him mentioning the West Coast so much like we don't already know where he's from, and throwing Dr. Dre's name many times thru out the CD. Overall, this CD is a must buy cause it is the real deal and he is the truth.

Yep it pretty much sounds like a continuation of The Documentary which actually isn't a bad thing for a sophmore joint. I mean most fans were at the very least expecting GAME to keep it as raw and tight as the first one and Doctor's Advocate does that and more. Leaving G-Unit and Aftermath was actually a great thing for him. He doesn't need to be pigeonholed into thinking DRE was the sole reason for his success and he definitely doesn't need to be associated with a weak mob like G-Unit (How good is that money looking now Mobb Deep. You not only sold your soul but have lost your following messing with 50 da rat). Hopefully Young Buck will have enough sense to get outta there and go independent.

However, it's usually by the third release where the fans are gonna start wondering when the artist is gonna kick some real sh@$$%t? I mean droppin real life joints beacause there are a plethora of issues not only in all our hoods everyday, but issues young black males still have to overcome daily. That's is what seperated 2PAC from everyone else is the fact that he could keep it gangsta, he could keep it club, he could keep it politically incorrect, but most of all, he could keep it real with our folks, male and female alike without droppin jokers names all over his record like that 50 cent rat drops dimes. Hip Hop has always been about braggadacio and bravado since it's inception and will never change. However, at some point, an artists longetivity will be determined by whether he change up his albums without losing his loyal following. Whether he or she can make us feel his or her pain and struggles or is the artist rappin about somebody else's and we see right through him as a wannabe.

the item arrived as described, it was in a brand new unopened package damage and debris free. No scratches and clear as a whistle. The game is very talented, and this cd is good for just personal use like getting the morning crancked up on the way to work, or at night while youre getting dressed for a night out on the town, a must have item

After getting the release date pushed back on several instances after all the business tie-ups and all, The Game's sophomore album finally was set to release in early November. The Doctor's Advocate had a lot of people's attention to see how the Game would do on his second effort, this time no Dr. Dre to help with the production and no 50 Cent (Thank goodness!) on featured songs and hooks, although have to admit the songs he appeared on were tight on The Documentary. So, Game had to go at it on his own on this go-round. After grabbing the album on the first day and giving it some listens, you could tell (at least in my view) that this CD was not as good as The Documentary. There was just something missing to me. That something was that help from the Doc. But that might be what helps Game in the end as he does put out a very strong CD with this one.

He might have not gotten production and mixing from the man who put him on, but he does manage to put together some of hip hop's other great and hot producers such as Just Blaze, Scott Storch, Swizz Beatz and Kanye to name a few. His lyrical ability might be shown to be greater even more with this album actually, except the few too many references to Dr. Dre and the bold comparisons of being as great as Jay-Z, Nas, Pac, Big and Cube. He does have the potential to plant his status there in due time, but I do not believe he's there yet even though he is one of favorite rappers right now in a few that I do listen to. Those guys built their status over time in being hip hop's all-time elite. Game can't expect to do it with just two CDS. He has to consistently do it over time.
