If the Game's G Unit-fuelled debut--the most anticipated CD of early 2005--is supposed to be the Answer like Iverson, then what was the question? Well, when an emcee gets to rifle through 50 Cent's Rolodex to hand-pick top flight producers Timbaland, Just Blaze, Kanye West) it's a can't miss scheme, right? In this case, uh-huh. "Westside Story" is Game's opportunity to remind crunk-come-lately's that his region is still rap relevant. On the Dr Dre produced "Higher" he snorts: "I got 'em (Impala's) in every colour, yeah I'm a known stunna." Yep, he's rich now too, and drives whips that cost more than most make in a year. It doesn't even matter much that he's a B minus rhyme spitter, or that he spends way too much studio time name dropping. His real life 50 Cent-esque narratives (been shot, involvement in "subterranean" activities) makes cuts like the introspective, Havoc-hemmed "Don't Need Your Love" with Faith Evans that much more compelling. Boasting a half-dozen plus other sure-fire hit singles including the Kanye burner "Dreams," few albums can match up to The Documentary--the only Game in town.--Dalton Higgins

Man i love this album, i bought this album since the day it was released and it's still in my cd player and i just keep listening to it. To be honest i wasn't expecting Game to be this good, he has everything a good rapper should have and if he continues to do what his doing at the moment, than in a couple of years time his name will be remembered in hip-hop along with Pac, Biggie, Nas, Dre, Jay and all the other rap legends.
But i have to say this album wouldn't have been this good without the magic touch of Dre, no one can match his producing skills, every album he touches or every song he touches becomes a big hit. i can't wait for his new album Detox.
Anyway back to The Game, i love almost every song in this album.
Here's my favourite 5 songs:
Hate it or Love it-This song is the bomb, great production by Dre, great verses from 50 and Game, deep lyrics.
Don't need your love-This is my second favourite song on the album, not many people like this one, i don't know why because this song has great lyrics with a good message, and Faith does a great job on the hook.
Start from scratch-What a track this is, i heard he was drunk when he did this song and you can tell it from the way he raps, but really emotional song with good lyrics and a great beat.
Higher-My favourite on the album, when i heard this song for the first time, i didn't like this at all, but it just grew on me and it became my favourite song one the whole album, i love the beat, this is a magic from Dre, and Games lyrics make this song a classic.
Special-Game and Nate, good combination and a great song, i like the beat, the lyrics, the hook by Nate, i love everything about this song. Again, great production by Dre.

Before buying this album, i had only heard the track Dreams, and this was for the sole reason it was produced by Kanye West. It was to my surprise just how strong the rest of the album was! In my opinion there is not a single weak track on the album, although there are most certainly stand out tracks. Personal favourites, Westside Story, which was a great choice of track to start the album with. This is then followed by Dreams, which for me is definitely the best track on the album. Being such a big fan of Dr Dre, his trademark beats are all over the album, such as Higher, which another stand out track on the album. Eminem also continues to show his production talents on We Ain't, which again is a very strong track.
In short, this is album shows The Games clear vocal talent, along with production from the best in the industry.

This is an album i have been looking forward to for quite a while and it does not dissapoint. Got a few appearances from 50 cent and nate dogg. As well as appearances from eminem, yayo, mary j and busta rhymes. Bit suprised the rest of g-uni arent on there, but i'll get over that. Not really a song on there that i dont like. The production is really good as you would expect with 9 dre tracks as well as kanye west, just blaze and timbaland producing tracks. Even eminem produces a decent track.
The subject matter is quite diverse, not just about money etc... Talks about his son quite a bit(namely on like father, like son with busta). Also talks about his life in general and getting shot(thankfully doesnt mention it loads like 50).
The songs that i'd already heard(westside story, higher and how we do) are all really good tracks. Other highlights are dreams(prod by kanye), Hate it or love it(feat 50 cent), We Ain't(feat eminem) and the heart felt start from scratch. That track is about his 'homies dying' and you can almost hear his voice cracking as if he on the brink of tears. There are several upbeat bouncy tracks like the songs i had heard before as well as Put you on the game. At the end of dreams he gives a shout out to the murdered sister of venus and serena williams. There are also a few one liners aimed at the sauce magazine(who eminem has beef with), i didnt know of game having beef with them but obviously he does.
Overall i think this is a damn good debut album and i would recommend people go buy it, i've already ordered my copy.

The Game (real name: Jayceon Tayler) has been sitting on the backburner of Shady/Aftermath for over a year & a half now. During that time, he's been releasing mixtape material & taking shots from Jersey MC Joe Budden. Finally, though, around the middle of 2004, we got a chance to hear "Westside Story", which is undoubtedly one of Game's best tracks. At the end of '04 we saw him in his first video (the remix vid. for "Certified Gangstas" by DipSet's Jim Jones) & then soon after "How We Do" dropped.
When I picked up this album i had read several reviews saying one thing "the beats are hot, the lyrics are not". I was told this was an average album with great production but lyrcially couldn't hold up to any other G-Unit member. I was also told that Joe Budden's album was better (which i believe it is, but Game's isn't as bad as its being made out to be).
Game's album has several high points. Yes, the production does carry some tracks through that otherwise would've been trash ("Put You On The Game", "How We Do", "Higher") but Game shines lyrically on so many other tracks its hard to notice. The uptempo feel-good 50 Cent collabo "Hate It or Love It" comes to mind in this category, seeing as how Game outshines his G-Unit partner throughout the entire track. Other tracks where Game lyrically shines are "Westside Story" (which suffers from being almost a year old before the albums release), "Dreams", "No More Fun & Games" & "Like Father Like Son".
The thing about The Documentary that makes it good, though, isn't the high-standard lyrics but rather the entertainment. On "Start From Scratch" he raps an entire song flat out drunk & it comes off as the best track on the album. Why? Because its entertaining, its something we haven't heard before & its emotional.
