The Game is the Kobe Bryant of rap music

I know I’ve been killing y’all with these rap music to pro sports comparisons, but I finally got one that you will all have to co-sign so hear me out. The Game was the best rapper in 2006. When I say best rapper I mean, the most talented and true to the spirit of Hip-Hop. Look how much The Game improved his spit from his first album. The Doctor’s Advocate was supposed to fall like brick after The Game was forsaken by Doctor Dre. Instead D.A. was one of the best albums of 2006.

Rap music and pro basketball cross paths constantly whether it’s a wayward rap album from mercurial point guard Allen Iverson or an even more nutty offering from Queensbridge housing projects second best rapper, Ron Artest. Let’s never forget all of the albums released by Kobe’s former teammate, Shaquille O’Neal. How many of you find it amazing that Shaq and GZA have released the same number of albums? With the NBA’s All Star Weekend coming up on Sunday I thought I could pitch my final rap music comparison for the year (prah’lee not).

The Game and Kobe are both L.A. to the core. The Game had a problem holding weed for Fisty Scent the same way that Kobe Bryant grew tired of holding Shaq’s sacks. Everyone gave the most attention to Shaquille for Kobe’s successes, as if Kobe wouldn’t have found his greatness on his own. Fisty Scent took all the credit for the triumph of The Game’s first album by saying that he wrote all the best verses and basically his input made the album a success. The Game and Kobe both have oversized egos which doesn’t allow them to admit their own mistakes. The Game and Kobe are both into anal sex (extra nullus to that last sentence).

At first it didn’t look like Kobe would ever get his shit back on top after Shaq and Phil Jackson stopped fucking with him. Plus, his sponsors were cutting him off left and right. It was like dude was going to be sentenced to the NBA’s publicity purgatory. Other dudes like Carmelo and LeBron were coming up in the game and getting maximum ESPN highlight shine. Kobe started to get the rep of being a petulant, selfish crybaby. For a minute there, nobody wanted to fuck with Kobe Bryant. Just like Kobe, The Game went through a difficult transition during the breakup with Fisty.

The Game found himself getting arrested for nonsensical shit like wearing a mask in public and assaulting a police officer. All the while he kept recording music and working on his flow and getting better. The one thing that you couldn’t deny was that The Game had heart. No matter what was happening to him in the business sense of rap music he kept improving his own flow and style. The Game understands one of the most important aspects of todays’ rap game – marketing. The Game made sure that his name stayed on mixtapes and in the mouths of rap fans.

Fisty Scent found his own success after splitting with The Game just like Shaquille has in Miami, but I think we all can agree in both cases who is more charismatic and interesting as a personality. The Game is one of the closest characters to the oft-referenced Tupac Shakur because he wears his heart on his sleeve. Listen to The Doctor’s Advocate and imagine how many times he must have cried while he was in the recording booth. A rapper that gets mad and has emotion for his craft sounds better to me than someone who acts like he’s tired of the whole game. The Game’s attitude resonated with rap fans as well and despite prolific downloads his album still achieved platinum status without Geffen Records buying over half a million copies. That’s saying something in today’s fickle fan base that Hip-Hop occupies. The Game and Kobe Bryant are only going to get better from this point forward so Fisty Scent and Shaquille O’Neal had better get used to hearing their names a lot.

    …so are you trying to say that Kobe is more charismatic than Shaq….get the fuck outta here. If it doesn’t fit your little comparision just leave it out.

  • E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA

    Nice post probably your most accurate comparison so far.

    The Game keeps improving he went from being aight to a pretty good rapper now. The Game is gonna be Kobe but not yet he’s still hasn’t won championships(classic albums) like Kobe. Game also isn’t way better than the competition yet.

    He just has to ease back on the name dropping and try downplaying his homoerotic crush on Dre. That shits just not acceptable.

    I think GAME is more like A.I. because A.I. has more heart than KOBE.
    Game has heart but he still hasnt accomplish nothing without 50 or Dre. Only reason you compared them was because of the LA connection. Game is more like AI because he has heart but he will never win.

    Sunday before you went and wrote this column you should had gone to ESPN.COM and read a article by Jackie MacMullan there she explain who KOBE is. And after reading her column GAME is nothing like KOBE and will never be. Check it out here is the link.

    billy sunday you must be white. feeling the game what does he spit? his voice and delivery is weak and the lyrics he says are average the industry understands game as an artist who coupled with great production can make records that sell but so can jennifer lopez does that make her great? in england we play football so i don’t understand your kobe comparisons but the game is like shevchenko at chelsea he needs assistance from a team i don’t think he is capable of individual magic that’s why his mixtapes make no noize. i don’t think the game appeals to black music lovers over 21 we understand a puppet and we know what a true artist is and he ain’t one.

    ^^^
    Yo homie unles Game moved 200,000 copies this week then he is not platinum, he’s still hovering at 800,000. Don’t get me wrong the album had some bangers on there and his new single will take him to a million sold, but he still hasn’t reached his last album’s numbers. So I guess he is Kobe because neither one has lived up to the standards placed on them, especially after running their mouths, not so much Kobe anymore. Game had a good year, but he’s not the MVP. You’re overlooking TI, highest selling rap album, Jay-Z and Nas. All three of them had good a good year.

    the game is not the kobe bryant of rap now his production team was NBA championship quality but his lyrics are ncaa quality.in every song he says dr dre,cherry red,64,impala dayton,taste this,smell this,jay, easy,big,pac,he is the dennis rodman of rap.butterfly on the face and when people speak on he tries to cover it up.if you decide to put that on your face you have to be man enough to live with that unless it had a secret sweet message that you didnt want anybody to know about. some gay stripper signal . im free to fly .ha ha.

  • Incilin

    I think sports reference are great and this post is really creative but it is well flawed. I do agree on the premise, to me Game is the best bar for bar rapper in the game right now. But for one thing, Game’s album didn’t go platinum (At least in the united states), it’s at about 830 thousand. I might add that The Re-Up Mixtape is about the same amount despite limited promotion. Which is to say his album isn’t really all that succesful commerically, although its a artistic landmark for the still young Game.

    If there’s anything about Game I love, it’s what you said; his heart (As well as his knowledge and respect for the history of rap, minus jay-z) but he really is an emotional rollercoster.

    Shaq won a championship while Kobe almost fought his way past the Suns. While Game almost reached platinum status (which he originally said he’d get to in a week) while 50 didn’t release an album yet maintianed a high profile.

    The Game is definately not the Kobe of rap, come on now. Hes hasn’t been rapping that long, for one. Lyrically hes not the best rapper. And his last cd wasn’t all that great, at least not to me. The verses were ok, but the hooks were weak. None of the songs were classic. I mean he is better than your average rapper, but he’s not the best. He’s always name dropping. And his life is way more interesting than anything he has ever recorded. Remember when he bragged about fingering Vida Guerra or when he was a contestant on Change of Heart. Just think about it, he’s more like the T.O. of the rap world

  • john cochran

    I can agree that Game was the best last year. I dont count Nas and Jay cause they already givens. T.I dont rap about nothing but Chevys(anybody see him in that commercial on the Super bowl) and Wayne dont rap about nothing but money. Therefore, niether of them are anywhere near close. I think the beginning of 2007 will be slow then we’ll see some good projects. Hopefully some new faces.

    “The Game’s first album by saying that he wrote all the best verses and basically his input made the album a success”
    It’s the truth. Why else does he get 25%?
    Game didnt get any better, he recycled the blueprint from his last album, just this time he spent a shit load more on super producers and guest spots. Hes still talkin about the same ass shit over and over again.
    This dude rode in on 50′s coattails and then hyped hiself usin Dre’s name when theres no dre tracks and dude is off aftermath. Then this wouldnt get far bullshit, where he’s stealin from Pac and Snoop now, wtf?? Maybe he’s just like Kobe in the sence that He rode in on Shaq’s coattails and continues to ride the Phil Jackson train (I.E. Dre). Ask yourself where Kobe would be without phil, or where Game would be without Dre. NOWHERE. If Game is the best MC in hiphop for 06, then maybe, just maybe, hiphop really is dead.
    Theres alot of cats who were alot more successful, or made major steps this year and have great stories and have put in major work like,.. Chamillionaire?? Fuck Fisty Scent the gay pron star, but fuck Game’s dumbass too. I dont know 3 of my homies that like this dude, they’re sick of the Name Droppin and recycled Dre albums. But thats just our opinion.

    1 hunned.

  • EReal

    P.S. Game got Murdered on Wouldnt Get far by Jay and Kanye.

  • Rizzop

    He get 25% because of a contract, but what do i know? And if he rode in on 50′s coattails, why has everyone elses shit on Gunit only been half as successful? I dont like to here Dre’s name 20 times either, but maybe unlike alot of artists in the industry he KNOWS he wouldnt be where he is if it wasnt for those people paving a way for him to shine. Whats wrong with a nigga being humble and paying homage in his own way? As for why he was using dre so much, the nigga was signed to aftermath records and did alot of material thinking Dre was going to be on the album, but then he wasnt. That would hurt anyone if the got to work for someone he admired and then a New York nigga come a squash all that shit. The man game said on his album “imagine you came home, and all your shit is gone. Ya’ll can hate all you want to on dude, but talent is talent, and the clouds can only stop the sun from shining for only so long. Jay and Kanye have a remix of “wouldnt get far”? Where can i find it?

    Well because that was when he first dropped, as I noted. Last year. Anyway record sales dont mean shit to me on your sound or swag.
    You see the thing, to me, about game is, that he was smart. He came in when G-unit was in full force, and as we all know when you’re on top theres gonna be a backlash, and now he’s taking advantage of that, and Dre’s name for his second album. He built a following of those #1spot haters, and people wanting a new westcoast sound. I just think he could be deeper than he is lyricaly. I dont have anything against game, but it just to me sounds like the same shit westcoast has been talkin about for a minute. Id like to see more. But to say he’s #1 of 2006?? Come on man, just my .02

    I dont have a link for the remix yall I’m sorry, I heard it on AOL Radio XM channel the Heat. Peep them out maybe? But I can say that Jay fuckin KILLS it.

    personally i think The Game is the most overrated rapper out..not hatin but just don’t hear ne thing special in dude..hes in the top 10 today by default since all the other rappers are either washed up(jay-z,cam’ron) or just plain garbage(rich boy,young joc)..heres my top 10 rite now
    1.50 Cent(don’t be mad Game stans..Get Rich or Die Trying was a classic, The Massacre wasn’t far behind and he is the most talked about by far..his next album is gon do numbers in a fucked up time 4 sales)
    2.Ludacris(been consistent wit hot albums since Back 4 The First Time..Lyrically criminally underrated)
    3.Lil Wayne(can’t condone that kissin Baby shit but can’t deny hes a spitter)
    4.T.I.(King wasn’t as good as Urban Legend or Trap Muzik but still better than most of the bullshit that dropped in 06)
    5.Jadakiss(Still in my top 5 even after a year off)
    6.Pusha T(wordplay goes over nigga’s heads but he is one of the nicest dudes out)
    7.Papoose(his mixtapes better than most albums 4 real..best in wordplay by far)
    8.Young Jeezy(lyrically leaves a lot to be desired but both his albums are better than JT’s)
    9.Young Buck(best rapper in G-Unit not named Curtis)
    10.The Game(not sayin he wack..he ain’t he nice either..hes servicable..more penny hardaway than kobe bryant..and the name droppin is fuckin annoying)
    I know a lot of ya gonna argue but i stand by my list

  • Pancho

    The Best of 06…(I’m ignoring any current or potential storyklines that occur in the NBA 2day…)

    Kobe Bryant- The Game (best overall 06)

    Gilbert Arenas- T.I (overlooked in the past, but now gettin his spotlight on)

    Chris Paul- Lupe Fiasco (06 rookie of the year)

    Shaq- Jay-Z (still can drop that heat from time to time…but past his prime now)

    Lebron James- Kanye West (both the best at their craft)

    Dwayne Wade- Lil Wayne (all of a sudden both of them just started to spread massive heat in 06)

    Carmelo Anthony- 50 Cent (both have more to prove in the game…can 50 make another classic?…can Carmelo be as goos an D-Wade and LB)

    Steve Nash- Nas (both are veterans and MVP’s of the game that can still get it done)

    Any more left? Don’t care if yall agree ot not…

  • DevoG

    U and BoL are on a role. Ur first post I can co-sign. Good job. To the dude posted above me, I respect your opinion bruh, but NAS will ether 9 out of your 10 easily. Game is the only one that I could see going at him. I know you’ll say 50, but I’ll take the M.C. whose career, legend, and verses were built on intellect not WWE tactics. And as much as I like tip (that egytian history rap shit was funny, Black History Month or not) it just aint gone happen. He gotta get past Luda.

  • Pancho

    DEVOG
    ^^^^^^^^^
    Umm..I think Steve Nash is gonna ether out the competition when it comes to MVP balloting (just as Nas can prolly ether out anybody in the game)…Don’t like 50 myself that much…although he comes out strong at (rare) times.

    T.I went platinum and got respect from the streets (mixtapes) and mainstream (ATL movie, KING album)…Luda didn’t do that in 06′ as well as T.I…(the movie Crash helps, but Release Therapy not doin as good as KING…)

    I think I got some more…

    Elton Brand- Ghostface Killah (both overlooked while being one of the best at what they do)

    Tim Duncan- Common (all about the fundamentals of what they do)

    Kevin Garnett- Talib Kweli (this is prolly the most weird one…both can’t seem to win the big one…Garnett=can’t win a championship…Kweli= can’t win the mainstream)

    Yao Ming- Busta Rhymes (another weird one…both are generals…Yao tryin to bring back the Rockets, Busta tryin to bring back NY)

    All I can come up with right now…again, don’t care if yall agree or not

  • EReal

    ^ Luda did smash on T.I. on the Stomp remix,..

    But man, Game goin at Nas??? LMFAO
    He cant even go at Jay without apologizin.

    Plus I dont like the games that The Game plays man, now we’re beefin, now we’re not bullshit. It gets old and makes him look mad pussy.

  • mills1540

    i have thought game was the rap game kobe for a minute but another comparision is there both the best in the game but both have more haters than anyone. Everyone always rags on kobe and just hates on him for no reason and game is one of the most popular rappers but also one of the most hated at the same time

  • EReal

    ^ Uhm, Id say the title of most haters goes to 50 and G-Unit, and they dont name drop once every bar or 2 bars.
