When I first heard the album I was very underwhelmed but damn it's grown on me & I'm really enjoying it. Only problem is that it's too long with some fillers like a lot of other artists albums.

It’s weird, this is the only forum I have read that absolutely finds this album terrible. I enjoyed the album but it’s definitely different. A little bit too long but that’s not really a problem because you can always shorten it up.

That's because this forum died off years ago because posters only truly accept anything Snoop/DPG related as real west coast.

exactly .. literally everyone on the coli is calling it a classic or close to it

Yeah I've noticed this forum isn't what it used to be. It's stuck in the mud.

There's like 10 really dope songs I fuck with after the first listen. What's up with Game sayin' "The Documentary" went diamond on "One Life" though? I don't think it even went 3 times platinum.

from wiki :


The Documentary debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 586,000 units in the first week. In March 2005, the Recording Industry Association of America certified the album double Platinum, and by November 2005 the album sold 4.4 million copies in the U.S. and selling five million copies worldwide

it was never certified beyond 2 so no .... plaques are registered based on how many albums ship, not how many sell. and a majority of albums ship 90%+ of their units in the first couple months.....if it was diamond best believe they woulda had it certified by now, as thats an extremely rare accomplishment. not even jay-z has gone diamond.. best he did was 5x plat, which is half of what game is claiming lol.

Never heard the original version of Magnus Carlsen - Is the track really named after the norwigian chess player?When listen or reading the lyrics i do not get it. All cheap sayings aside like "stay one step infront" yada yada

Anyways Born 2 Rap has so many good tracks I did not pay much attension on first many listens.

Had the album on repeat since it been out, that cover ahaha.

Quote
The Game – ‘Born 2 Rap’ review: a sprawling swan-song from an all-time great

Allegedly his last album, 'Born 2 Rap' sees The Game explore his legacy with classic samples and riffs on his signature material. And he still has so much left to say




Whatever you think about The Game, you can’t say he’s not consistent. From the moment he bulldozed his way onto the scene in 2004, it was obvious he had what it took to be a rap mainstay, not some flash-in-the-pan hotshot who soon fizzled out.

From ‘Hate It or Love It’ to ‘Dreams’ and ‘Ali Bomaye’ – the list goes on and on – he’s delivered a constant onslaught of high-quality hits that, for the past 15 years, have become part of hip-hop’s very fabric. There’s a real argument to be had that he might be one of the most consistent artists in music regardless of genre.

So it’s a bit of a punch in the gut to learn that ‘Born 2 Rap’ is – allegedly – to be his last album. Luckily it’s a contender for one of his best. The Game raps with a newfound clarity throughout – never more so than on opening track ‘No Smoke’. Over Travis Barker’s thundering drums, he declares: “They don’t want no chronic smoke with me”. As he revisits various points in his career, he realises that initial hurdles were necessary to get him to where he is today.

The Game invites listeners on a voyage of self-discovery and reflection. From cutting off family members (‘Hug the Block’) to religious ambivalence (‘Cross on Jesus Back’), there’s no moment more powerful than when he addresses death straight-up on the Marsha Ambrosius-featuring ‘I Didn’t Wanna Write This Song’, which sees him pay homage to slain rapper and community leader Nipsey Hussle, who, having been gunned down in his neighbourhood earlier this year, appears posthumously on the instrumentally rich ‘Welcome Home’.

Providing a sense of familiarity, the album often turns to a historic beat or sample. On ‘Carmen Electra’, The Game walks his Chuck Taylors all over D’Angelo’s ‘Devil’s Pie’, while on ‘Gold Daytonas’ he uses Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s ‘Get Money’. And on ‘The Light’ he borrows an idea from Common’s song of the same name, as he samples Bobby Cauldwell’s ‘Open Your Eyes’.

But ‘Born 2 Rap’ isn’t just a library of classic records blended together: it’s a lesson in storytelling, something The Game has never received enough credit for. One minute he’s painting a picture of L.A.s complicated gang scene (‘Five Hundred Dollar Candles’) and the next he’s taking a page out of Nas’ book, creating a sequel to the Queensbridge rapper’s masterful track ‘Rewind’. And, amazingly, after all this time he still has so much fresh material: on the title track he reveals that he would have been dropped from his label Aftermath had Jay-Z not told Dr. Dre that ‘Hate It or Love It’ would be a smash.

True the track list is a little lengthy. There’s a flawless project somewhere among the album’s 25 tracks, which could certainly do with trimming. But it’s clear The Game has a lot to get off his chest, which begs the question: with so much left to say, why walk away now?
