Album Review: The Game - "The Documentary 2" (9/10)

Game, the most consistent West Coast rap artist, releases a called-for magnum opus. Paradoxically, this controversial emcee has personal relationships and features from heavyweights such as Kanye West, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Lil’ Wayne and a number of other notables. “Don’t Trip” features Dr. Dre and Ice Cube as Game documents the gangsta life. “Standing on Ferrari’s” exudes a spiritual presence from the Notorious B.I.G. All in all, Documentary 2 does a fine job of merging ‘90s hip-hop influences with current mass appeal. A sequel part guided by Dr. Dre displays a musical leadership by tastemakers for Cali swag.

Score: 9 out of 10
