The Game has carved out a legendary career for himself in his almost 20 years in the rap game. In 2005, he dropped his debut project The Documentary and it’s one of the best albums I’ve ever heard. The Documentary went on to go triple platinum as it was released in January of 2005. Less than two years later, he dropped his second album Doctor’s Advocate. The first album was with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent through Aftermath and G-Unit Records. Between the two albums, there were a lot of drama between the Game and 50 Cent. The beef with them started with 50 Cent kicking The Game out of G-Unit, which was followed by a shootout. Things got so bad that Minister Farrakhan was called in the get the beef to stop. They had a press conference vowing to end the beef, but it didn’t as expected.
They went back and forth on several mixtapes for the next several years. The two were seen together a few years back talking to each other at a party. Many people were hoping they reunite for a tour or a do a Verzuz against each other. The Doctor’s Advocate was released through Geffen Records and his Black Wall Street imprint. Doctor’s Advocate became his second consecutive album to debut #1 after selling over 360,000 copies. It’s Okay (One Blood) was the first single released off the album. The Game also released a remix to the track featured 25 rappers and the song is almost 12 minutes long. He also went on to released remixes for the East, South and West. Let’s Ride was his second single and it was produced by the legendary Scott Storch.
Let’s Ride had a west coast feel to it and another good track off the Doctor’s Advocate. Wouldn’t Get Far was his third and final single off the album and it featured Kanye West. Wouldn’t Get Far was the most talked about single because he was dissing a lot of video vixens. The Game has called this his favorite album and it’s a really, really good one. This is probably my second favorite album as he proved he could make a dope album without Dr. Dre. The album featured Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Nas, Dogg Pound, Nate Dogg, Xzibit and Jamie Foxx. Why You Hate the Game, Doctor’s Advocate, Wouldn’t Get Far, One Night and Too Much.
