Right but only thing is when 2pac did Makaveli he was the biggest rapper on the biggest label coming off of All Eyez On Me so he had way more freedom to do it. It's like saying why didn't he do the Makaveli album prior to AEOM? Obviously because he needed to sorta "revamp" his career he had been locked up mixed with all the other troubles plus he was on Death Row, so check how many features he had on that album (Snoop, DPG, Meth, Red, Dre etc) and how many hot producers he worked with (Quik, Dre, Daz etc). I can see your point but don't see how it would work in today's climate it's not like it's 2005 and Game has just gone 5x plat were he can do an album like that.

I mean the reason why artists do collabos other than wanting to work with someone is for business reasons. It it was that easy i'm sure alot of mainstream artists would've tried it by now but alot of them still haven't.
I never suggested that it would be an easy thing. I'm saying it is something I would like to see a few artists try. And truthfully, don't think a lot of mainstream artists would try it if they could because there's a risk behind it. I think artists like these big collabos on their albums because they get to work with huge stars and it helps sell their project. I think it was probably about three years ago when I started noticing that all these mainstream albums have basically the same artists on them. Even in the 90's when you had albums like Chronic and Doggystyle, a lot of the collabo work went to guys on the label.

The problem that labels aren't seeing or at least not understanding is collaborations are over-saturated. In order to empahsize their importance again, they could stand to scale it back so they mean something again.

Yeah of course i'd love to see that too but i don't see that happening tbh. I'd rather take a Game album with little to no (random) namedrops than a feature-free album from him. I doubt any of what Mars said is true though i think it's a lil ploy to maybe get a few people interested (fans and haters who'll check it out to see if Mars really was right or not).

wait...you think Game steps outside the box anymore so than someone like Jay Rock or Nipsey Hussle?

Without a doubt. Nipsey would never make a song with Ne-Yo, DJ Premier, Raheem DeVaugan, Common, etc. I've said it before - he may rep the blood stuff and what not, but his image and substance goes far beyond being some gangsta. He actually makes songs with messages. Nipsey could never make a song like "The Kill." It's the same reason why Nas, Wayne, Kanye, Rick Ross, Doug E Fresh, KRS-One, Jadakiss, etc have continuously fucked with this dude over the years. The same will never be said for Jay Rock or Nipsey, they just don't have enough universal appeal.

Is this a joke post? Game is a mainstream rapper. Hence he can make songs with big names. Other mainstream artists work with him because he has built those connections off his fame and because he has the money to shell out for them. I never thought I'd see the day someone would say putting Ne-Yo on a song is thinking outside the box.

For a Westcoast rapper that you're calling a typical "gangsta rapper," yeah, I feel that recording with someone like Ne-Yo is stepping outside of the box from the norm of what someone like Jay Rock or Nipsey would do.

You mean as far as selling out? Hardcore gangsta rappers tend to not make songs with pop singers because its not their style. Someone trying to commercialize their shit and make soft records (ie. 50, Ja Rule) would. Lmao at thinking that going pop is stepping outside the box.

doubt that'll happen. im just thinking he'll cut the name dropping in half at least. to say that he wont name drop at all, is saying an awful lot. the no features is a bit ridiculous as well, since game is not really a "hook type" artist. im sure he'll have a few features in there

LMFAO, Game "steps out of the box" by making an album with 15 of the biggest names in Hip Hop, with some of the most well known producers & stealing all their flows & styles of their respective features. This is after naming his album in spite of Jay-Z's "Black" album (which somehow, you groupies still try to deny).

Yeah, Game is a real trend setter & clearly one of the most original.

Ok even if he got that from jay...jay got his from someone else too...right now ur speculating that he stole the idea...that's what u think it isn't a fact

Dude sits here & co-signs everything that h2k4 & Enigma says who are almost as bad as him & then just tells everyone who disses Game that they're blindly hating.

Haha  :wavey:.  There's a difference between having a difference of opinion, and blatantly hating on someone.  Guess which category you fall into (hint:It's not the former).

As far as Game naming his album after Jay-Z, that could be possible but Jay-Z wasn't the first to do that:

Released in 1993, also known as "The Black Album".

I really hope this happens but if we just got no name dropping and a few features the I would consider that a win.

No name dropping or features on the songs, but I bet he'll more than make up for it with an album title along the lines of "The Illist 'prescription' without reasonable doubt" with song titles like "The Game Watcher", "Nuttin But a Compton Thing", California State of mind and so on and so on

No, h2k4, you don't get it. You're a stan. He dropped an average album, at best & you're fronting like he produced real quality music.

If I was blatantly hating I'd say "Wow, this is complete garbage, every single fucking song sucks, he's ass, his flow sucks, his delivery sucks, this sucks, he sucks". You just want to label me a hater because it belittles my much less biased opinion of Game than yours. You're probably one of those guys who thought this song (below) was "pretty fucking tight" when it dropped.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/faxllhT6UBE" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/faxllhT6UBE</a>

He physically will not disappoint you.

How can I be a hater when I say I like "The City", "Born In The Trap", " Ricky" & "Martians Vs. Goblins" & said he has great vocals & a pretty dope delivery. Haters just don't say things like that. A real hater is someone who just completely hates on every aspect of an artist. Like Lil' Wayne, when people say he's just complete ass from top to bottom; not a positive aspect to his game. That's hating. Only a stan would refuse to see the difference out of reacting like he has sand in his vagina to unbiased opinions of Game, exposing his major flaws.
