The 20 Best The Game Songs Of All Time

Before he became known as an attention seeker, believe it or not but The Game used to be more famous for his rapping talents back in the day. He released his critically acclaimed debut album “The Documentary” in 2005, and was projected to be the on the forefront of the West Coast hip hop renaissance.

The Game, born Jayceon Terrell Taylor was placed into G-Unit by Dr. Dre, who signed him to his Aftermath Records label imprint in 2004.. Even then you could tell he was unhinged and was going to be difficult to work with. Game was mainstream but he never left the streets. His brash behavior and overbearing demaneor eventually led to him being axed from G-Unit.

Since then he has been at loggerheads with 50 Cent. The exit also affected his relationship with Eminem and Dre but his love for them never wavered. His 2006 sophomore album “Doctor’s Advocate” was released as an ode to Dre, though the 2001 rapper did not contribute any production to the album.

“Doctors Advocate” became Game’s second studio album to debut at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling over 360,000 copies in its first week. The album featured production by Kanye West, Scott Storch, Swizz Beatz, Just Blaze and many more.

He went on to release more than a handful of decent songs albums and mixtapes throughout his career, proving that he could still make good music without the help from Dr. Dre or 50 Cent.

On Friday, Aug. 12 The Game released his tenth studio album Drillmatic – Mind vs. Heart. While the album’s rollout got overshadowed by his “The Black Slim Shady” song, which is wildly reported to be a Eminem diss record, the LP still had a few slappers.
