Game ft. Kendrick Lamar - The City

Posted 4 years ago
Cool & Dre
The R.E.D. Album

Hip-hop fans didn’t know what to expect when they pressed play on Game’s new R.E.D. Album. Would it be more like the DJBooth (un)approved Pu**y Fight or more like the DJBooth approved Pot of Gold? That question was resoundingly answered on the album’s opening song The City. Cool & Dre get cinematic, deep and dark on the beat, giving Game plenty of fuel to drop some of the most passionate and honest verses we’ve heard from him. (Yeah, I was one of those critics who said LAX was average). But perhaps more notable is City’s guest verse which gives rising west coast star Kendrick Lamar his most high-profile placement to date; and good lord does Kendrick make the most of his opportunity. While I’m sure we’ll see a wide range of opinions in the comments below, frankly, if you’re not impressed by this than nothing Game does could impress you. While City is one of its best offerings, the rest of the R.E.D. Album isn’t too far behind, so if you’re feeling the intensity on this one be sure to pick up a copy.
