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

Product Description

Product Description

After selling more than 10 million albums worldwide from his first three projects, Game is back. Mega producers Cool & Dre, Boi 1da, DJ Khalil and DJ Premier join hip-hop/R&B artists Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Drake, Lloyd and Nelly Furtado, Game’s mentors Dr. Dre and Snoop, and new era rap stars Kendrick Lamar and Tyler the Creator in contributing to the R.E.D. Album.

BBC Review

On previous LP LAX, Jayceon Taylor aka Game seemed assured in his approach, as he saturated deep instrumentals with gruff tales of survival and perseverance in California's gang territory. Three years later, and he's still emotional on The R.E.D. Album, if not downright frustrated with multiple setbacks. And who could blame him? The aforementioned LAX received mixed reviews from critics, a fact not forgotten by the brash Compton-raised MC. "I was stressed the f*** out, torn between Aftermath and Geffen," Game raps on the opener here, referencing the tug-of-war he endured with the two record labels.

Then there were the delays. It took Game (no 'The' these days) nearly three years to complete this project, a 21-track deluge of passionate wordplay and sullen reflection, set against a glossy backdrop of polished West Coast soul and thumping drums. The artist has never shied away from his chequered past, often celebrating his gang affiliation and glorifying his police record, and it's more of the same on The R.E.D. Album. "Yeah, I got two gun charges, three felonies, just got off probation," he proudly states on Heavy Artillery. It's not entirely heavy, though. Martians vs. Goblins, featuring Lil Wayne and Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator, is rooted in offbeat funk and heavy on the eye-popping punch lines. "I suck? Where's the f***ing Ring Pops / You got a better chance of getting a copy of Detox," Tyler raps, referencing the much-delayed Dr. Dre album.

Overall, The R.E.D. Album stands as a solid return for its maker, as long-time listeners will connect with his no-frills lyrics and unsettling artistic demeanour. He's at his best when he mangles the instrumentals with menacing abandon; less so when he's dangerously drifting into mainstream RnB music. While Pot of Gold works as an efficient coming-of-age tale, Hello and All the Way Gone sound somewhat forced. Game also seems influenced by the rappers he features, often emulating their voices and cadences: on the jazzy Mama Knows, for instance, he sounds eerily similar to Nas. When left on his own, however, Game proves he's still as magnetic as ever, whether he's carrying the torch for the West Coast or proclaiming himself one of the industry's best rappers. The game doesn't change, just the players.

I did not think much of this album, after waiting for over a year in anticipation for this I was disappointed at what I was listening to. What has happened to Game, is he now more into R & B hits than he is into his hip hop? If you are looking for a rap album then you will be disappointed as this album does not come close to his previous three albums, yes there are a few good tunes on here but all in all I felt that Game has gone soft. If it's a decent rap/hip hop album you are after then I would go for the last three Ice cube albums as you will not be disappointed.

This album, sadly, falls far short of what 'The Game' is truly capable of.

His 2005 album 'The Documentary' was far superior to what is presented here - I mention this because after hearing Jayceon at his best, it's hard to be content with a mediocre album. 6 years on, you'd have hoped another true classic would have appeared. It hasn't.

+'s

A few songs are good, the opener 'The City' is a personal favourite.
Dr Dre adds atmosphere by providing some talking tracks.

-'s

Most of the songs are average at best.
A lot of input from other artists, possibly too much.

Probably the best best hip hop album to come out this year. If you don't know about Game the R.E.D cetainly tells his whole life story. After L.A.X i've only had his mixtapes to listen so this album is a must! Best tracks probably The City, All I know and Born in the trap in that order. The Documentary will always be his best album in my opinion but this is definately his second best.

Love this album. Like all albums, some songs are better than others. Buy if you like Game though, as you won't be disappointed.

Game's Red album is so good it's never out of my stereo Goblins v's Martians for me is an instant classic. I have been a Game fan for a very long time for one of the best rap artist's out there.

I bought this CD because I liked the 'White', 'Black' and LAX albums, they are hardcore, best beats I've heard anywhere, with this one as the album cover shows, really dark feel to it, my least favourite of the 'Game' albums, just too much. Powerfull,dark and explicit, if you were worried about playing the others when ya Gran was round! my fave track is 'Martians and Goblins' though.
