The Game > Everybody But Kanye West

I think people get too caught into Game’s impulsive moves to appreciate his bottom line.

The man makes great music. Let’s not forget. Game has been committing career suicide since he first stepped onto the scene three years ago. He allegedly used to strip, allegedly used to wear a tongue ring, got dumped like a sucker on Change Of Heart, got kicked out of G-Unit, annoyingly claimed countless truces only to go back on his word every time, etc, etc. Sure, he’s a knucklehead. Sure, he couldn’t stop name-dropping if his life depended on it, but the music is flames.

At this point, Chuck has clearly grown into his own artist and it’s more than enough to make him Top 5 in hip-hop right now. Pick anybody in hip-hop, list their last three solo projects and tell me who else has consistently been putting out four-star albums? Kanye West, check! I haven’t heard The Recession entirely, but something tells me Jeezy deserves his kudos as well. Nas? As a longtime God’s Son supporter, I really wanted to dig Untitled, but I haven’t listened to it much since I purchased it. I also had mixed feelings about Street’s Disciple. Weezy’s Carter series is good, but it just doesn’t measure up to Game’s three joints. Jay-Z? Dude hasn’t been the same since The Black Album, so let’s no waste time discussing Kingdome Come and American Gangster. Do we really have to mention Snoop? Common? His last two CDs were classics, so there’s a lot riding on Invincible Summer.

The funny thing is, Fif can boast about writing six records on Game’s debut all he wants. Game has now become a better artist than Fif. The Massacre wasn’t as bad as folks made it out to be, but Curtis was nearly unbearable. Who else? T.I., Ludacris, Fabolous, Busta Rhymes, Talib Kweli, none of these artists’ last three releases measures up to Game’s. Give the man some credit. He’s Top 5 right now. Matter of fact, Kanye is no.1 and he’s no.2. If this Recession album is dope, then you gotta put Jeezy up there too. Be on the lookout for Billy X. Sunday’s Game review coming sooner than you think.

          Can you tell me what exactly has Game done? Name drop like hell, get gay ass tatoos, always mentioning 50 like a scorned girlfriend, rides on Dr. Dre’s dick. He’s a good rapper, NOT top 5.

          Oh yea, and Lupe is lightyears ahead of Game. Listen to Switch or Handcuffs lil nigga. Game NEVER did some shit like that. Do some research nigga, damn.

      • Makaveli1671

        You the only person on this page who seems to actually know what u talking about… I totally agree. Only thing I dont agree with is game being the best rapper alive & thats only because he aint put out enough albums. I have lost all respect 4 dr dre 4 siding with 50 over game…game hands down was the best artist in that camp besides eminem. 50 has even talked shit about dre while game did nothing but praised him…it might be fate because dre done fell off as a producer 2… eminem,timbaland,scott storch,swizz beats,cool & dre,dj quik,the heatmakerz,polo the don and kanye all have better tracks than dre. If he was smart he would tell 50 stop beefing wit everybody hook up wit game and do a album with him..thats the only thing that could save 50′s career right about now..maybe

    • I AM BARACK OBAMA

      THE DOCUMENTARY GOOD ALBUM TOO EASTCOAST FOR ME..THE DOCTOR ADVOCATE CLASSIC..PERFECT CLASSIC WEST COAST SHIT,THE BIG LIP CAMEL HATED ON THE NIGGA ALBUM SALES..LAX WILL BE ANOTHER CLASSIC..

      THIS NIGGA LAST 3 ALBUMS SURPASSES THE LAST 3 GAY-Z DROPPED.THE GAME WILL EAT GAY-Z(PIG MILLER),HE NEEDS TO STOP APOLOGIZING TO THE FAGG AND GET HIS ASS..NO HOMO..NO BODY ON THE EAST EXCEPT FOR NAS AND JADAKISS WANT TO SEE GAME..WE ALL KNOW HE WILL SWALLOW THE SOUTH,UP NORTH I HAVE NOTHIN TO SAY ,AND THE WEST HE IS THE KING..NO DISREPECT TO THE O.G.’S,SNOOP,CUBE,E-40,QUIK,BUT THE GAME IS ALL OF YALL IN 1,WE ALL GREW UP STUDYING YALL HE’S JUST THE ONE THAT PASSED THE TEST..

      NIGGAS NEED TO JUST STOP HATIN AND GIVE THIS NIGGA HIS DUE,WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO DO.DISS THE WHOLE INDUSTRY OR LEAVE HIP HOP SO NIGGAS CAN FEEL HIS IMPACT.WHILE DR.DRE IS FUCKIN WITH EVERYBODY ELSE BESIDES HIS OWN NIGGA FROM HIS OWN CITY THE GAME IS STILL RELEVANT WHILE DRE FELL OFF DUE TO GAME NOT BEING ON AFTERMATH..DRE HAS NO ARTIST THAT WILL SELL REAL NUMBERS AS OF NOW,SO WHO IS HE GOING TO PUT ON THE DETOX ALBUM.NIGGAS DONT UNDERSTAND DETOX WAS SUPPOSE TO BEEN DROP,BUT WITH 50 DECLINE IN HIP HOP,M&M FALLIN OFF,BUSTARHYMES FLOPP,EVE FLOPP,WHO ELSE DOES DRE HAVE.THE NIGGAS LET GO OF GAME SO WHAT IS DRE GOING TO DO?THAT WHY DETOX AINT CAME OUT!!50 RAP CAREER IS OVER THANKS TO GAME.DRE SHOULD HAVE BEEN LOYAL TO HIS OWN NIGGA BUT HE WAS SCARED OF 50 AT THE TIME AND YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENED NOW..THEGAME BITCHES,HE IS THE TRUTH,THATS WHY HE IS THE NEW MEBER OF THE WESTSIDE CONNECTION..WHY NOT SNOOP OR QUIK?NIGGA THE GAME IS THE SHIT..LAX!!!LET THE WORLD START HATIN AGAIN.

      Imma tell u what george bush told me, “fuck ya’ll niggaz im outta here.”

    finally somebody who just tells the truth instead of hatin for some reason that has nothing to do with how tight an artist album iz

      young jeezy is an aweful rapper im a fan of game but if you think jeezy is top 5 then i seriously question ur judging haha heres jeezys latest verse

      yo my car rims are big like twent fos
      im a paper getting nigggaanigga i get dough (YEAAAAAA)

      • Makaveli 1671

        I agree about jeezy being wack as a rapper..he lost my support with that wack ass line on that song by the dream: “It goes hillary clinton, barack obama” what the fuck did that have to do with the song?

  • stevie b

    I have too strongly disagree you must be a big fan of The Game but he is not top 5 and the way you rated him against other artist is biased his three verse there last three?wack! how his three verse the other artist best three you dont want to do that because then he will definitly not be top 5

    I am not saying he is wack he is just not top 5

  • Damien

    ^^^ People don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about when they say he raps about the same shit, at least he ain’t making love songs as singles like Curtis. His name dropping is shitty, but dude actually makes good records.

  • Retardo Gwopola

    I agree in premise with the author… The Esco and Hova comments definitely don’t apply but essentially he’s correct… Game has proven to be a terrific artist and his latest work may even be the best yet… The Dope Boys record with travis Barker is dumb hott… The Keysh record is classic… Even the now oligatory Weezy record that everyone must have is dope… The most important thing is that he has an overwhelming appreciation for the culture and the legends that paved the way… Something that’s sorely missed with today’s flash in the pan “sh!t tone” rappers…

  • LAX

    in my opinion the game is the best rapper alive, i feel like Games three albums are just as good if not a little better than kanyes.

    The College Dropout vs. The Documentary – Tie
    Late Registration vs. Doctors Advocate – Game
    Graduation Vs. LAX – Tie

    • nellz

      lol..u a fuckin fool..

    • BX POSTER CHILD

      IIGHT LAX HERE’S HOW IT REALLY GOES:

      THE COLLEGE DROPOUT VS. THE DOCUMENTARY- GAME
      LATE REGISTRATION VS. DOCTOR’S ADVOCATE- KANYE
      GRADUATION VS. L.A.X.- KANYE

      GAME IS NICE BUT KANYE IS BETTER

      • LAX

        i think late registration is kanyes worst album and i think doctors advocate is games best…. kanyes first two albums are also kinda killed by the ridiculous amount of skits

  • Chip

    I agree Game goes hard, and I will definitely be buying LAX after hearing the three crazy singles and equally hard leaked tracks, but even when Jay-Z doesn’t bring his A game he’s better than Game and if he takes up Game’s offer of beef then that will be the last career suicide attempt Game will make

  • http://hiphoponmymind.blogspot.com DJ Daddy Mack

    GAME IS GOOD BUT NOT WHAT YOU MAKE HIM OUT TO BE.

    • Pierzy

      But Jeezy is garbage so look at his competition

  • http://WTF S on my Chest

    Sons shit has always been dope however its the same recycled shit now and he needs a fresh approach. Having listened to his new album I’d say he’s gone from a 5 star “The Documentary” to a four star “Doctors Advocate” to a 3 and a half Star “LAX”. Whilst he shit is banging it is on the decline quality wise. But then again name a rappers shit that isn’t. Son was always a better rapper than fif that’s not even a question but I’ve still not heard the dude do his own hook. I doubt he could actually write a whole song himself and that’s the difference between the two, Fif can write songs. That’s also why the two when they were together were unstopable, Fif wrote the song, the hook and the concept Game added dope verses and I think he made 50 try harder.

    It’s not Games ability people don’t like, it’s Game and his chip on his shoulder. I prefer Fif because he has swag whereas Game just over-the-top wannabe thug.

  • DMV hustler

    Jay-Z? Dude hasn’t been the same since The Black Album, so let’s no waste time discussing Kingdome Come and American Gangster.

    ^^ The Realest Shit i ever read in my entire LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    at least someone agree’s with me, they need to give this guy a BONUS for typing that shit, real talk.

    games last two albums were cold, i aint gonna lie, and jeezy does his thing too.

    i aint care for his 2nd joint too much but the whole album was nice, cant hate

    i agree games top 5 dont let the game no u think his albums r better then waynes he’ll go ape shit

  • Giggaboo

    My opinion. Games first Album was the only good one that was released from him. His last one didn’t fare so well. I don’t know what direction his going with this one, but what I have heard so far, not really my taste.

  • http://lx2609@yahoo.com L.A Fitted

    Man there are to many haters out there but its all good everyone has their own opinion. Well here is my opinion The Game is Top 5 with Kanye West being #1. So far from what i heard The Game album is going to be a classic. L.A.X August 26

  • ZeldaLeft

    Yet another post from the top slot about how great someone is. It’s cool if you want to write about how great Game or the new Game album is, but at least tell us why. your whole post is “game n kanye’s last 3 are great because (insert missing validation/qualification here), and all these other artists’ last three joints havent been as solid because (insert various reason that so’n'so fell off).

    I get it, its a blog, you’re here to give your opinion, but COME ON, if the TI’s are making you hype someone, at least take the time to come up with ACTUAL REASONS dude’s shit is hot (good beats, lyrics that arent about dead rappers, punchlines about midgets, etc) instead of spending 3 paragraphs saying “current XXL cover artist is great and all our past benefactors cant keep up”

    • DMV hustler

      i feel what ZeldaLeft is saying lol.

      does sound like alittle dickriding, im sure L.A.X aint all that great.

      T.I.>>>>>>The Game

      and why is kanye Top anything?????????

      Kanye is a producer first, rapper second, graduation was TRASH compared to his first two joints.

      2.Nas
      3. N/A for now

        So NO. Game isnt better than everybody else except Kanye. Kanye not even in the top 5.

  • Pierzy

    Game is hot right now and could be top 5 currently but he’s no legend.

    And “American Gangster” was one of the best albums of last year!

  • jonjon23

    I think the Game’s last album didn’t do to well because the Camel used his influence and power to block a lot of his spins and blackball him. His previous two albums were in fact top shelf. Think about it: with all the good songs on Doctor’s Advocate they really didn’t get too much airplay, but you always heard those weak songs off Kingdom Come spinning every hour. Can anyone even remember more than a few songs off of Jay Z’s last two efforts? If he learned anything I hope he learned to shut up and make music, because he’s a very good lyracist.

  • RedemptionsSong

    1. Kanye
    2. Common
    3. Jeezy
    4. Lupe
    5. Wayne
    As you can see Chi-Town provides the most quality MCs,the South is not far behind, NY is the city that just fell asleep (Lox please wake the city up), and my beloved West has not been the same since the Chronic 2001(Sorry Snoop & Cube can’t take you guys the same after Doggy Fizzle Televizzle and Are We There Yet? respectivley.
    Jay is still the greatest and could bury Game easily, just his last two were unfocused. Game is the same played out name-dropper that throws in one or two good lines occasionaly.

  • kashrulz

    Are you serious? Whoever did these is a nut-rider for real. Game is sick, don’t get me wrong, but don’t even begin to compare him to rappers like: Ludacris’ release therapy was mediocore true. But his other shit? Red Light District is better than two of game’s albums! Busta Rhymes’ album the big bang and his two other shits is waaaayy better than game’s three compilations. Who else?? You said Jay-z ain’t been the same?? Are you on crack? Are you saying Game’s albums are better American Gangster? That shit was hella better than game’s life! Kingdom Come was a great album, it’s just the timing that was wrong. People was still sour about him going out of retirement. 50, Nas, Eminem, Outkast, T.I…..I got a list of people better than the game!!Yo, you straight trippin..

  • Real Talk

    Glad somebody is finally appreciatin the Game, it gets real tiring herein people bitch and hate on dude when his music is top notch. Name droppin? If Game dropping so much peoples names is such a big deal, than why do so many fans and critics consider the Documentary a classic?

    Game rappin about the same shit? Documentary and Doctors Advocate are totally different albums, both are high quality shit. And his new singles are way fresh.

    I think people that hate Game honestly have not sat down and listened to his music.

    • ee-city

      that is because noone knew he would go on and do all his raps with names in them, The Name is alright as long as he dont drop names, but dats what he does, i mean if you want an album to listen to everything about everybody else then go ahead and do u patna-LOL

  • avenger XL

    So now XXL lapdogs have moved from weezy “I took my whole gimmick from fleese Johnson” F Baby. Please don’t forget his married name “baby”. To hoping on this left coast wanna be gangsta. Let me do this objectively.

    Games good points:

    He has Charisma
    He has a good voice and cadance
    He fits the dangersous image that the TI’s love to present of black men when they want to sell rap music (even though he looks like he is trying real hard to do so)
    He has access to good and sometimes great production.

    With with all of the above said of course he is going to make a listenable piece of work. If you give the above traits to anyone you may see a little success.

    Games bad points:

    He is willing to do anything to stay in the spot light (career suicide to game is like beef to 50) the more outlandish shit he does. The more media coverage he gets which energizes his base of fans and blamo he is in record selling mode.

    His Flow is medioce written or off the top and name droppping is akin to dick riding. There is a huge english language out there use it or get a ghost writer damn!

    He glorifies the gang life style rather than telling the real in and outs of this shit. He is like that ultra famous west coast blood dude. So the TI’s bring him in for effect.

    He is just an all around D bag. See if you are willing to do anything to stay at a certain level it normally means you don’t stand for shit and I am willing to bet Charles Taylor stands for nothing but being a hollywood fraud.

    XXL please keep your paid dick riders at bay and remeber all of his albums were not 4 star them bitches deserved 3 and a half maybe and that is being generious. The game is a mediocre character with a mediocre name with way too much media coverage and access to good/great production. It is what it is

  • Avenger XL

    And only Helen Keller or somebody who knows nothing about rap would consider documentary classic. That is like saying get rich or die trying is classic when they are really both solid albums but not classics just great commercial success stories. If anything the Game said on documentqary changed your life then you are either young as fuck or you just don’t have a life.

    • 239allday

      Sorry Avenger but I’m going yo have to disagree with your GRODT analogy. I was in 9th grade and everyone I know was bumping that shit( including teachers and rednecks). I hate Fif but everyone had that shit in 2003. It wasn’t just a commercial success. That album was critically acclaimed and fan approved homie. Fifty owned that year and half of the next one. So don’t try to Vanilla Ice Fif’s first album. If every track on a album is dope as fuck then how is it not a classic?!

      • Avenger XL

        Just because it was listened to on a regular bases or purchased heavily doesn’t make it a classic. I believe it was a solid commercial rap record. There haven’t been too many modern day classics just formaul driven compilations and he is working for the TI king of now Jimmy I over at interscope which is so formaul driven that I don’t think a rapper can ever create a new song after they have a hit. But I digress GODT is a solid piece of commercial work and if I had to listen to pop-hop it would be one of my choices hands down. Besides I ain’t trying to Vanilla ice fif Vanilla ice was a no talent hack during a very dark time in music that was a lull period before the next 94 golden age. I don’t even have enough space here to tell you how bad Vanilla ice sucked balls to sum it up Vanilla ice is to rap what XXL Blog/magazine is to real unbias journalism.

    THE GAME IS OK BUT HES NO T.I. WAYNE OR JAY-Z OR NAS ALL DEM DUDES hAVE HAD CLASSIC ABLUMS AND GAME HAS ONLY HAD ONE AND THAT WAS WITH GUNIT

  • 239allday

    Niggas up here talkin about The docmentary was better than Doctor’s Advocate…How?

    The first half of it Documentary was very strong but the the album was too long for it’s own good. It kind of felt like a chore to keep listening.

    But the Doctor’s advocate was near perfect. All them songs is snappin except for the Jamie Foxx song and the Dogg Pound track.

    L.A.X. is going to be a fuckin banger straight through. I’ve been trying not to download the songs beforehand but I have already heard a lot of the tracks. They all fire.

    I don’t understand yall niggas sometimes. Game’s puttin out bangers and a definitely cohesive album. What more do you want from the nigga.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Dra$t-iQ Alkoholik

    y’all niggas gotta stop hating on Game the nigga is dropping a classic and the last classic JIgga had was BP1 coz BP2 was aight and so was “black album” but the shit after retirement been mediocre the nigga a has been Game has 1 classic album and 1 aight 1 and the way things look he got another classic on the way and why evrybody acting like Jigga gon kill GAme when Nas killed that nigga,and Em proved he the better mc on the same track

  • Apollo Moses

    I think tha office is aiming for another cover star to follow the umpteenth Lil Wayne feature.LOL!
    On the real The Game has been solid with his album releases. Haven’t heard LAX yet, the few cuts I did listen too haven’t been bad. However I think The Game’s credit for quality work should go to his choice of production. He’s had his pick of some bangers. The Documentary was a hot debut but not on a classic level. Haven’t broke out that CD since it came out. The Doctor’s Advocate in my opinion was much better considering his situation and having so much to prove on his own. The sound still had that Dr. Dre feel and his production again was top notch enough to carry his redundant subject matter of sucking off Dre,name dropping Easy, Snoop, Beyonce, insert rapper name, and referencing Jigga way above the norm of an average Stan.
    I could give him top five status in regards to relevance and quality work. Young Jeezy really needs step up with the Recession because that last disc got no spins and was all too forgetable.
    Kanye pretty much stands out with three straight good disc to play, although Graduation was more like a commercial feel to me and not as good as his previous work. The Carter series started very very weak with C3 being solid in terms of radio ready hits.
    The truth is, nobody in the game has been on point three albums in a row, not even T.I., Jay-Z, or my fav Nas. Ghostface is about the only one I can say was close, if wasn’t forced by Def Jam to drop that More Fish disc. 50 cent is dated and is like Floyd Mayweather, only concerned with money and not greatness. The homie Bun B might be the underdog with his next project, his first two solo disc were pretty damn good. That dude Lupe can only get better. So there is hope. And PLEASE stop biggin up the same three people every freakin day,week,and month.

  • Jiggly Puff Jackson

  • yaOK

    His CD is pretty good, but top 5? NOPE. Lupe, Kanye, Black Thought, Nas, Ludacris… Theres a lot of people that are so much better, and to try and say Young Jeezy will be third? get the fuck out of here.

  • Self-Educated

    Ok, a few days ago I made a comment on L.A.X. as I was listening to it. I said it was a pretty good album. Now I’m bored with it. 2-3 tracks out of 19 actually stick out to me(letter to the king,my favorite) and that’s it. The rest are average. It could have been better is all I’m sayin. It’s not complete garbage, you can just tell that some tracks sound forced.

    Game is doing his thing right now, no doubt…
    Most of the artist that have more talent than him are underground and haven’t even released an album yet so I can’t compare..
    But c’mon in “Letter of the President” Nas outshined Game like a mothafucka..
    I will agree that Game puts out more balanced music than Nas..but I most definitely wont say he is better than him…
    And Nas outshined Jeezy on that new President song too…
    Jadakiss hasn’t even released three solo albums..
    But Game is doing his thing

  • JDizzel3000

    Album had to many average beats …for me…and lyrically i remember hearing bws chronicals mixtape last year ..and hearing game go off on that jay primo track…and i was thinking man this nigga has stepped it up to a new level….unfourtunately he hasn’t been able to keep that pace up…

  • Nate

    Exactly, Not that we will all agree on all other top 5 MC’s last three but to be objective hereyou have to seperate Game’s skills, from his out of the booth fiasco’s. Game spits fire, as well on some of his street album Black Wall Street Journal stuff.

  • OG BOBBY J

    I have lost all respect for everyone here, including this blogger….

    Game is top 5? top 5? The following is a list of what Game is top 5 in:
    1- mentioning other rappers
    2- deepthroating Dr Dre
    3- mentioning bloods, cali weed, 64 imapalas, and 50 cent
    4- rappers with gay tattoos and no credible past (change of heart, stripper, etc)

    How can any feasible hip hop fan think this nigga is good?

    top in the game, fuck a classic album….im talking about material…period:

    Jadakiss…fuck it..the LOX
    Eminem
    Tie* Joell, Crooked, Saigon
    Luda…that nigga go hard

    SMH at you fugazi ass losers….it does make sense tho…fake thug, claiming a fake set…nothing but fans who love fantasy land hip hop.

    • Pierzy

      hahaha

  • Self-Educated

    At Dra$t-iQ Alkoholik: Game is not equpped lyrically like Jay,Nas& Em are. Game repeats himself waaaaaay too much. He’ll run out of shit to say. Kingdom Come was Jay’s weakest album out of his collection, not AG. But that’s just my opinion.

    SO DOES IT MEAN SHIT ON UR CHEST???? WHILE U GETTING TEABAGGED???? HE HASNT DONE HIS OWN HOOK? THE GAME SAYS “I GOT HOOKS LIKE A MUTHA FUKA MAN, CALL ME KAREEM ABDUL JABAR NIGGA” U REMEMBER THAT SONG WITH THAT HOOK, HE DIDNT DROP A VERSE IN THE SONG BUT HE DID DO THE HOOK!!!

  • fireforreal

    The game is one of the best in the last 5 years to come out period.I think he spent a little too much time on the G-unit beef.I heard the L.A.X album and I have to say he did his thing on it just like the last one(Hate it or not) He showed he still was hot without Dre or 50. And to all you haters who say he raps about the same shit,what rapper doesn’t rap about the same shit ? and when they rap something diffrent we hate on it like albums from Nas,Outkast,Common etc……

    • EE-city

      dont agree, well it depends on who u ask or whos blog u read, cus Nas Outkast and Common do not get hated on over here, they are very much appreciated.
      Only problem i got with the Game is that he is The Name, he loves to name drop and he could have a hot sixteen going and then start droppin names and erase everyhing he just said.

  • EE city

    Well i happen to have my official copy of games album and its alright, it starts off hard then goes all R&B and u can just look at the track listing on amazon.com or any official spot to see that, as far as name dropping goes, thats what he does only this time he put Kanye west all over the album, by saying his name almost 4 times in one song , dedicating almost entire verses to him, on the single “my life” alone he mentions Kanye a couple of times and how they could share a momma now (how cute-lol) then on the very next song he says “kanye west says jesus walks with me” or something like that, but the beats are banging,i wasnt totally annoyed by it.

  • Michaelbchnn

    I agree game is top 5 right Now. Disagree about Nas though, i find it funny that when now that Nas has become after Kanye the most critically acllaimed rapper in Hip Hop all of sudden Hip Hop fans don’t like him.

  • Michael

    Nas realeased three 80 point albums in a row on metacritc, as Did ghostface.

    i dont give FUCK how good he is…

    his lyrics are 1 level above Shawty lo…

    his whole background is fake thus what he is rapping about is fake…

    And the niccas a bitch period!!!

    yea he got a good ass flow i will give him that….

    and if you speaking on top 5 pop gangsta rap he is # 1….

    but a top 5 MC…. LMAO you nicca hyped him up in 2007 by giving dude the most anticapated album… guess what the shyt could barley go plat… (like a year)

    2009 is going to be a good year for rap…. all the fakes will disappear….

    i tried to listen to that shit with wayne… but i guess i a hater cause he aint better than 50 cent to me…

    he can pick better beats… and he aint a hustler like 50 so he dont go for radio hits (are what he thinks is a radio hit)….

    the nigga been fraud since day one… dissing jay and saying he dissing ja rule… then doing songs with ja rule… every since this clown came to rap it’s got soft… on some WWE shyt… kiss and make up shit…

    nigga was praising gunit… banks the best, 50 is incredable, yayo the hardest…

    i laugh at these clowns and wiggas… until the authenticity of a rappers are true… the sales will contiue to decline… game wont go plat mark my words……

  • Rockcity

    I think The Game is a good artist, I think he needs to relax after this album and reinvent himself. The whole name dropping thing is just him not wanting to be himself on records and if he wants to make it then he needs to dig deeper with subject matter and stop thinking because he say dre,NWA or whoever in every damn record itz OK cause itz not. When talking about new artist or niggaz dat dun came out in like the past 5 years, you can’t tell me game ain’t in the top 10 at least.

  • http://me woody201

    i cant believe xxl said kanye is #1 he is straight garbage boy i guess hip hop is dying. his first album sold cuz of 1 song. the gay one with that annoying high pitch voice in it the second was gold digger and that was annoying in what 2 days after radio played it on repeat all day jamie foxx got real old real quick with the john mayer rip off for the chorous he did. and his third song has 1 hot song “wait till i get my money right” thats hot shit there but that gay ass techno shit is straight garbage. r.i.p hiphop. i cant believe this is being said kanye is queer as shit and in a world where weezy and t- pain are considered top of the game i guess im missing something here this robo rapping is gay as shit and i cant believe these good rappers keep doing it hip hop will never comeback as long as this shit is going on just cuz t-pain cant sing without a machine dont mean its a cool trend to start. he needs to just leave. i cant even think clear this article got me heated.
    big up to my man Dj Luciano The Untouchable and Dj U-VEX the Beatills new album comming!! keeping it real hip hop keeping it real gangsta all day everyday. at least somebodys keeping good hiphop alive (pretty ugly, conflict, jo jo pellegrino, papoose)

  • HIP HOP

    B 4REAL – Game has never had the best Album of the year…….. Sure his last two albums we indeed Good, maybe great.. But they weren’t the best THAT YEAR.

    Doc Advocate – yes it was good the first two times I listened to it… BUT It’s HORRIBLE now, The Game is like a groupie always talking about people.. “My Name aint Dick so keep it out your mouth”….

    Nobody knows who the game really is… We know he grew up listening to Dre and Pac and Biggie, cause their in every one of his songs. For what its worth, I put Ricky Ross over the game.

    The Game will NEVER be better than JEEZY or LUDA or TI – those Artist came in the game on their own 2 – no co-sign, no name dropping, no beef, PURE TALENT.

    And Yes – those three artist will sell more records than the game this year.

    Ol’ Triple H – Dude, Answer me this.. How many people brought it shoe? All of three?

    Fuc outta here, Game Top 5… please
    10 other rapper would have to get shot, for that to happen.

  • Yayza

    Ok, I got as far as “The man makes great music” before I couldn’t take this blog post seriously anymore. The Game is the definition of wack. I would rather listen to Lil Wayne than him, and if you know how much I hate Lil Wayne, you’d know that’s a pretty big statement. Almost every ‘good’ song he’s done has only been because of the producer on it. He’s had maybe 3 good verses his whole career. Son is wack, and he needs to get out the game as soon as possible.

  • mali ahmad

    All I gotta say is food & liquor and the cool if yall was jus goin off of pure lyrical and songwriting skills Lupe is the best rapper out rite now hands down from concepts, flow, wordplay I mean name sumthn Lupe aint got ya digg?

    Is this supposed to be some kind of joke??? Jayceon is that you blogging again???

    1. Jayceon aka Game is an emotionally wounded & confused foster kid in the body of of a 6’4″ man.

    2. Since when does name-dropping (and 90% of the time the shit don’t even rhyme) and repeating the same ole Cali cliches (low-rider,’64, chucks, forces, Dre, nwa, blah, blah) equate to good lyrics & music???

    3. How do people ignore the fact that Ga(y)me flip-flops more than some fukkin sandals, tatted a fukkin butterfly on his face, & had a failed attempt at being a MALE MODEL???

    Get the fuck outta here!

    One minute he gangster/blood/damu…the next minutes he’s leaving sweet love messages for his (former) boo on myspace???

    If that ain’t enough the Ga(y)me obviously damn man-crush on Jay Z …talking gay shit like he gonna keep saying shit about Jay until the nigga do a song w/ him…

    This is the same guy who was on a game show. The same guy who started that bullshit G-Unot campaign. I don’t care how much 50 sells ever again, Fif tore his ass up, and to add insult to injury got a check for two million for Advocate b4 the album was released.

    Curtis > Jayceon

    Next, I don’t reside in L.A., but from what I hear Bishop Lamont has got crazy buzz. He should get placement on Detox which should sell at least 4 milli if things go right. I will gladly put the Caltroit joint against anything Game puts out.

    Bishop, Cube and WC > all L.A. Rappers

    Ok in the interest of saving time I’m gonna skip to my favorite. Game against Jay? Come on Rob and co. Lets speak the truth…

    Kingdom Come…..over 2 mil
    American Gangster….2 mil
    The Black Album as well as the others….8 or 9 mil if you add them up.

    Game doesn’t even have any statues yet does he? Hov has what…4 or 5? He has at least 4.

    Add his new deal and you have the Best in the business. Game has work to do however, even if LAX is sweet.

  • DETROIT

    I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS “BEST RIGHT NOW” THING. Throughout history, longevity has been the hardest thing for rappers to achieve. For you to have this post on the same day that you release a new scarface banger is damn near blasphemy in my opinion. Face’s consistency dwarfs the game. See the thing is, sales are based on business plans and marketing. Some of the worse rappers have the best numbers (vanilla ice, hammer, etc). That being said, game is good, but all his albums sound the same. his music is cool, but i’d put any face album up against any game album, and face would beat him every time. take “the fix” for instance, that shit is better than any thing the game will ever be able to offer. i think we need to pay more attention to people like nas, outkast, prodigy, scarface, ghostface, etc. Because there’s a laundry list of rappers who put out 2 or 3 good albums in a row, but how many rappers can say that they have 5 or 6 good albums? think about it, LL COOL J’s first 3 albums were Radio, Bad, and Walking with a Panther! The game can’t see that shit! And to say he’s the best right now is is like saying tayshaun price is better than D.Wade, cuz wade had a bad year last year. the fact that a nigga like nas has 6 or 7 good albums automatically makes him better than game, now, later, or whenever! YA’LL NEED TO RESPECT LONGEVITY MORE, CUZ THAT’S THE HARDEST THING TO ACHIEVE IN RAP….NOT 3 GOOD ALBUMS! SHIT, SNOOP IS BETTER THAN GAME! DOES ANYONE DISAGREE WITH THAT?

  • HIPHOP

    @ Everyone

    Kingdom Come vs. Doctor’s advocate: even for me, and I would listen to Kingdom Come b4 i listen to Doctor’s Advocate.

    American Gangster clearly was a classic album, and nobody has heard LAX yet to compare, and trust me…all the leaked tracks from LAX does not measure up to the weakest track on American gangster (think about it, you know i’m right!)

    Stop hatin, get Game’s dick, get off Jay Z’s dick and buy good music.

    I like kanye like everybody else, but please dont put him on top of nothing.

    the last song kanye dropped was months ago, only reason he still here is becuse of Jeezy’s first Joint.

    lets focus on people that put shit out or is about to put shit out in 08, not 07.

  • Rodjilius

    Game always been on my top 5 but forreal he been on his shit documentary was a monster doctor’s advocate wasnt as good but still was real nice i wish Nas was still makin hard shit he do sometimes but he need to go back to gangsta rap with social issues and shit da kinda gangsta rap dat makes sense but it’s all good cuz they both nice

  • Shawty J

    Game isn’t on of my top five, but he’s in top ten, somewhere above Weezy. Yeah Game’s obsessed with hip-hop and does to many shout outs, but if those are your only complains about why you don’t like him, you apparently aren’t listening closely to his music. Songs like “Ol’ English”, “One Night”, “Start From Scratch”, “Don’t Need Your Love”, The Game can be deep.

  • yoprince

    mannn, Game?? seriously? the only Game songs i still listen to are the ones 50 wrote.. c’mon mayne, Game is not nice like that.. and the worst part is he thinks he is.

    top 5 RIGHT NOW (in no particular order):
    1. Lupe
    2. Jeezy
    3. Wayne
    4. TIP
    5. Nas

    more before Game: Jay, Rick Ross, Kanye, Luda, even fuckin’ Jim Jones and I’m leaving out ppl who just aren’t hot right now like both members of Outkast, Ghostface, Scarface…

    Game makes no lists. Rich Boy >>> Game.. i could keep thinkin bout ppl all day who shit on Game. and btw, i’ve never met a real nigga who fucked with game. he’s transparent.

    • King B

      Rick Ross, Jim Jones before Game??? LMAO!! damn you must stupid Rick Ross last two albums was straight ass then Jim Jones ain’t shit without Cam, Luda is ok but the Chicken And Beer album and the Red Light District were wack Rich Boy is a one hit wonder so really lets be serious….the nigga game is the shit now nobody is holding it down on the west like game is doing it he made the west coast hot again so right now he maybe in the top 5 if so he’ll be #5 or 4

      • yoprince

        yes nigga!! rick ross and jim jones both have a number of tracks i’ll pull up on my ipod b4 i pull up a game track. Game is fake! Game namedrops on EVERY track! Game’s hooks are weak!

        the only reason he “holdin down the west” as you say is b/c he got put on by a NY nigga.

        and don’t get it twisted.. the west coast is NOT “hot again.”

  • http://myspace.com/jermsinfect J™

  • http://wtf S on my Chest

    And exactly how did he do that then kid? He spat 300 bars of what? What did he actually ever say? Buck didn’t leave shit, Bucked was kicked out and just like Game Buck is under contract so who won? I agree 50 didn’t do shit back but that’s because he literally didn’t do shit. At this moment in time I can honestly say I don’t know who’s hot snd who’s not because bootlegging and the internet has fucked everything up. Nerve homie? Me? Nah son i’m too cool for that, but just needed to let you know that i don’t let shit slide. they were warning shots. I’m not game i don’t throw what little i have all at once.

    When you grow up son and you stop riding games dick you might come out with some good points and decent facts, not your bullshit opinion. Ride your coast and the one glimmer of light it has, which by the way was ignited by NY AKA 50 Cent, and don’t you forget it.

  • CedarBlock

    The Game is fire, and he hates on anyone he wants to and does whatever he wants to, i got nothin against him, LAX

  • BIG E

WHAT DOES 50 RAP ABOUT?HOW MANY TIMES DOES HE SAY GUNIT IN HIS SONGS? HOW MANY TIMES HAS 50 STARTED BEEF RIGHT B4 HS RELEASE? AND U HAVE THE NERVE TO BRING UP 300 BARS. SON HE STR8 KIIIIIIIILLED UR FAGOT ASS GROUP.THATS THE LAST I WILL SAY ABOUT THAT, IF U HAVE 15 MIN, NO WAIT I FORGOT U WILL BREAK IT DOWN TO EXACTLY THE MIN HE RAPPED AND STOPED SO I WILL SAY 12 MIN OF FREE TIME GO POP THE SONG IN UR CD, AND LISTEN NOT HEAR BUT LISTEN TO HIS LYRICS.

  • Conte

    Can you dickride Game alittle harder? I mean you have to suck that cum up, since you just jerked him off the whole shit, you gots to let him bust in your mouth now I mean dam. Top 5? How? What is so great about LAX? What is he talking about on it? LAX is a weak album at best, 3/5, beats arent great, whats he got, 3 solo tracks, mad features, alot of RB sounding shit, weak album. Fif wrote Doc, so take that album away, DA and LAX makes him top 5? Get real, he aint better than Fif, Curtis though Fifs worst album is better than this shit, he had hot songs, I Get Money is a hotter song then anything on LAX. What, his name dropping on every song makes him good? And Kanye number 1, dam, real talk, I’ll never read anything from you again, you sound like an idiot for real, you must not no shit about hip hop, why XXL lets you write on there site is crazy. And I see Wayne is gonna be on the new cover, real talk, why you let YN go is crazy, cause since he has been gone, XXL is starting to suck now, real talk, I dont think I will be renewing my subscription when its up, cause shit sucks lately. How can one post which I agree with say LAX is average, L, and this clown is saying he is the 2nd best rapper out? WTF? I no XXL will ride Games dick, give LAX and XL rating, but it really deserves an L rating. Jay, Nas, Em, Ti, Jeezy, Kanye even though I hate Kanye, I put them all over GAme without a doubt. And Game had to have Keysha and Wayne on his singles to get any play, he still has no buzz, he is trying to beef with Jay to get a buzz, using the last album as a stunt, dude is a clown. I mean me, personally, I take character into account, not just music, and you listed all the shit about Game, so how can I sit and listen to him talk about how hard he is, blood this, gang that, name dropping like a bitch? Its all bullshit, he is fake as fuck, that was his brother, he used that image and Dre and Fif molded that image for the LA culture, LA is banging, so with that image, his brothers stories, Dres beats, Fifs hooks and him on the singles, the G Unit crew promoting him, thats what put him on, then he showed no loyalty to the man who made him, Dre would have left him on the shelf forever, look at Stat Quo, Rakim, Gauge, Joel Ortiz, Game wasnt getting a shot, shite even Bishop, besides Em, Fif and one Busta album, nobody has come out in the last years under Aftermath. But Game didnt back Fif up, and gives credit to Dre for his career, when Dre didnt do shit, it was Fif who used his movement to promote GAme, you think Slay, Flex, Clue, Whoo Kid, Green Lantern were playing GAmes shit on the east before G Unit? He was on MTV Cribs Car shit with G Unit, cause of G Unit, was noticed cause of G Unit, Fif on his first singles, they blew cause of Fif, but once Game saw he sold over 500k first week, 2 top 10 singles, the hard part is over, he is on, dont need to show loyalty to G Unit. So I take character into music, and Game aint real, how you get a butterfly on your face say it means something to you, then cover it? Change of Heart, tongue ring, mom owned a strip club, stripper, basketball player, that is GAme, not no thug. And his skills aint even shit, he aint really lyrical, the name dropping, he has a good flow, but thats it, top 10 I can see giving him, not 5.

    jay-z hasnt been the same since the black album??? what the hell is this dumb fucker talkin about..jay-z cant outspit, outshine and make better music than anybody alive..point blank period

  • http://wtf S on my Chest

    Those dudes may have made the westcoast but your kid says it himself he brought the west back and as 50 made him what he is it equal ignition motha fucker! Getting your album pushed back by your boss who the fuck has the power in that relationship the kicking and screaming kid who wants the attention or the dude who makes the calls in a calm manner? Which would you rather be? A brat or the master? I’ve got 300 bars and all he does is mimic peoples styles well. Fif ain’t my hero so i won’t agree with everything he does or says but fifs put out legendary shit the every fucker knows. The albums have got lazy but the mixtapes are legendary. What that contract means is that £150 mil fif made last year Game contributed to that and probably paid for fifs shit. The conference things was about peace especially given the timings and parralells of the old east west shit. He did kiss him which was gay but go tell weezy and bay that after the dudes gone double plat! Games funding a so called – never proven snitch. Games the most hypocritical person going he says one thing then does something else he’s always doing some DMX type stupid shit like they’re in competiton. Whilst Game is very good he lacks depth enough to be top 5 anything. Whilst he has put out some deep shit the majority of his crap is recycled garbage, and recently I really can’t tell the difference between fif and games approach to rap. Games starting those 50 games of dissing to promote his album, the approach to the mixtapes is the same…..some might say game is a straight biter when it comes to fifs approach to the game.

    THE GAMES BEST SKILL IS MIMICING OTHER PEOPLES MOVES, STYLES AND APPROACHES IN A RAPPING AND PHYSICAL SENSE!

    I believe the term is your “Rebutal”.

  • Baiden

    I honestly think game is talented. Sure…hes not the greatest lyrical rapper out there…but he can make songs with the best of them…. Hes also pretty dope. Documentary is was one of the best albums of 2005, doctors advocate was stellar and he proved he could make good music w/o dre or 50 and LAX also sounds great. His last three albums havent been classics…but they have been damn good.

  • westcoast mexican

    all u fuckin bloggers are full of shit, kanye is a fuckin sellout, Game is a legend already, Nas had the best album out so far but i think game’s LAX might be a lil better, & the resession? jeezy is tight but all he talk about these days is politics, rappers need to stay away from that & get to some real shit, some real lyricism.

  • Rex Banner

    Joe Budden >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Game

    Mood Music 1,2,3 >>>>>>>>>>>> documentary, doctors advocate and lax

    And those are only mixtapes but so much better than alot of rappers albums

    • nellz

      completely co-sign
      the name dropping for me is just unbearable at this point

  • Daveyg

    finally some appreciation for game instead of some bullshit blog hatin on him. I will say that LAX isnt as good as i thought it would be but still got some sick as records. Doctors Advocate was by far his best, had the total westcoast feel to it. and if game wasnt one of the best rite now then why is so many artits fuckin with him on tracks. the last few years we have Nas,Wayne,Common,Cube,Luda,Raekwon,snoop,xzibit,jeezy,natedogg.
    and to the name droppin, he does it to show love, i mean hes THE GAME – get it.
    you see anyone spit like game? no
    you see anyone namedrop like game? no
    you see anyone beef like game? no
    you see anyone beefin with game? no
    this mother fucker can spit bar after bar and still get trashed. fif spits love song after love song and people love it. i just dont get it.

  • Rockcity

    Well he doin somethin right 113 comments in this bitch, think on it.

    • Tony Grand$

      Yo Rockcity, I hear you my nigga. And its just like this, like Game said, “love it or hate it”, and that joint spoke truth, right? Cats is blowin up this spot. I been checkin back and forth all day. Mufuckas passionate bout some Game, love or hate! That’s what the fuck you call a buzz!!

  • Leezy

    Game third album is not out yet so you can’t say that his joint will even be as good or better than anybody. Plus T.I.’s last three is shittin on games first: Urban Legend,and King were 4 or better. Hip Hop blogger give too much credit for hype rather than actual skill, relevance and numbers!! real talk

  • NiggaPlease

    The Game is garbage, always has been, has said maybe two good verses his entire life (one of which was on the “Certified Gangstas” remix) and his beats are the same boring tepid “only sound good in jeeps” shit that got criticized int eh early 90′s. Dude is a delusional bum who brings nothing new to the table and people who think he and Jeezy aren’t garbage are the problem with hip-hop.

    Step your taste up.

  • whatthefuck?!

    Game should NOT be mentioned in the same breath as Jay-Z and Nas.
    Change of Heart??!!
    Gangsters don’t go on game shows,man.
    Plus, on that show, he didn’t have ANY of those tats.
    Jimmy Iovine made him do that.
    His own brother said he’s generic.
    He learned how to spit by listening REPEATEDLY to Jay,Nas,Big,Pac,etc.
    He said it himself!
    Dr.Dre and 50 taught him how to make actual songs.
    And that Doctor’s Advocate?,he tried to sound JUST LIKE DR.DRE. That shit was WACK!
    He didn’t sound like that on his first shit. He’s the WORST biter out of anyone.
    At least Jay was biting off a friend that he knew, This nigga ain’t know any of them,
    Still bit ‘em.
    Bottom line is this:
    He’s all right, BUT HE’S NOT REAL!!!

  • http://www.xxl.com Athenz

    Oh come on people wake the fuck up!! What happened to the good music of the 90′s? Please man. I’m a fan of Jay-z to the death but I’ll put in Reasonable Doubt before any of his current albums. I’ll put Game’s classic “The Documentary” in before any of his current shit smear albums that have been watered down by industry politics. I’ll even put in Master P’s first album. Shit, everybody’s first album is hot. Question is, who can really beat the sophomore jinx? And I don’t think (as decent of a “rapper” as he is) the Game can do it. No artists can really ever beat it. So to put it plain and simple, fuck Game’s new album. Put in the Documentary and ride the fuck out!! INdustry politics ruin artist’s follow up albums. And you Breech Babies on here arguing about who’s new album is better than who’s. Look man, I’m from Chicago, South Side off Cottage and 87th (holla) and I don’t even like Kanye’s shit. That nigga needs to either go live in Tokyo with them funny ass P-Funk shades and that vocoder shit or shut the fuck up entirely. I ain’t no hater or nothing, just a fan of good music, man. Jada got the hottest single I done heard out there w/Styles and Sheik, that’s that real, I just got released from Bad Boy, hood gutter shit….that’s my word

  • bennieblancoh

    ehh… he’s alright; but he’s not real…
    just because most of what you hear is shyt now-a-days, it does not make something that is bearable DOPE! get the fuck outta here. have standards fallen to this level? no stanning, no hating. duke is a decent rapper… and decent is a stretch. he does get credit for riding with good producers and he stays in the lane he has carved for himself. but just because g-unit went to shyt, and Hov hasn’t put out another Reasonable Doubt or Nas an Illmatic, does not qualify Game for the title. he doesn’t even carry the weight of the whole album… with all the guest appearances it’s more like: LAX- Game featuring (insert rapper, singer, weed carrier). but that’s just my simple and humble opinion. sure the person below me will type “^^^^ hater” I just hate that folks have started to accept chyt for hot due to the lack of decent releases. I’ll bang my 90′s playlist on my ipod…
    *playing Far From Yours- O.C.*

  • Young 50

    Got to admit Game is a good rapper but top 5 rapper Hell Naw!! For one game first album is a classic because of 50 cent and thats why it sold 5 million. “How we Do” aqnd Hate it or Love It” is by far his best two songs. People can say what they want but it is the truth. The Doctors Advocate was a good album but not better than the first and I wonder why? Maybe because 50 wasnt on his shit. He always sneak dissing and then saying naw I wasnt dissing. The first half of the album all he is doing is saying Dre name like a groupie. The best songs on the album is with features not by himself. When its all said and done Game will never sale 5 mill again. This Lax album gone take damn near a year to go platinum just like the last one. How and the hell people saying he ended 50 career and this dude just made 150 mill this year. He can buy games life with his credit card. When 50 album drop in the 4th quarter its gone sell trust me. I can hear the haters now they wont believe it will sell, but many people believed the Lakers would defeat the Celtics and look what happened.

  • malakidagod

    THATS TRUE HE IS TOP 5 RIGHT NOW ALBUM WISE AND M.C. WISE HES A GOOD ARTIST I FUCKS WITH HIM IM EXCITED SO FAR WITH EVERYTHING IVE HEARD OFF L.A.X. ESPECIALLY SUPERMAN THATS MY SHIT !!

HIS LAST TWO HAVCE BEEN CLASSICS AND WHENEVER HE DROPS HIS 3RD AND HOPEFULLY NOT LUPES LAST ITS GONNA BE A GREAT ALBUM AS WELL AND I GOTTA GIVE PROPS TO WAYNE EVEN THO I THINK THE CARTER 3 AND THA CARTER 1 ARE TRASH FUCKIN ALBUMS CARTER 2 IS HIS BEST BUT YOU HEAR HIS IMPROVEMENTS N THA CARTER 3 IS LISTENABLE AS A RAP RECORD NOT A LYRICALLY ALBUM.

    MY TOP 5

    1.KANYE WEST
    2.THE GAME
    3.LUPE FIASCO
    4.LIL’ WAYNE ( I HATE THIS NIGGA BUT GOTTA GIVE PROPS)
    5.IDK WHO TO [PICK I’M STUCK BETWEEN JAY-Z, NAS & T.I.)

    NAS ALBUM IS GOOD TO AND I HEARD JOCKIN JAY-Z BY JIGGA AND I AM WORRIEE THAT THA BP3 IS GONNA BE LIKE HIS LAST TWO ALBUMS WHICH IS THE LESS LYRICAL IMPRESSIVE JAY HE HAS BEEN WHY CANT JAY RAP LIKE HE DID ON T.I.S SONG WHAT WUTCHA SAY OR WAYNES MR CARTER ON HIS OWN RECORDS DONT BE FOOLED JAY IS TOYING AROUND AND NAS STILL GOT IT AND T.I. IS GOOD IM CONFUSED FOR THE 5 SPOT ANYBODY CAN ARGUE BOUT THIS

  • http://www.incilin.blogspot.com Incilin

    Totally agree. Big cosign on this one. Game is (and has been) my favorite rapper for a while now, and LAX is the yet another reason why. Dude is the complete package.

  • bennieblancoh

    Stans, bitchassness, mediocre MC’s, alot of fakes… Hip-Hop of today. Gawd damn shame. “Liking” someone does not mean they are a top MC. It just means that YOU like they sorry ass. I guess there will never be a general concensus on a subject like this… I am just saying don’t accept low level shyt for being great because everything else is shyt. A bitch that is a 5 in the club ain’t a 10 just because she stands next to a couple of 4′s.

  • Grand Hustle

    t.i all day

  • E.S.O. Boy

    Man I have a real hard time calling Game the best. I can’t get past his constant name dropping. THAT SHOWS ZERO LYRICAL ABILITY!! “The Documentary” and “The Doctor’s Advocate” were good albums, but def not classics. Game is cool, NOT THE BEST.

  • Riva

    You’re right, him and kanye hold the top spots at this time. But with Game pushing new artists now (Clyde Carson), it seems like he will be bigger than he is right now.

  • Hear It&Fear It

    THE GAME are you serious??! You must be out your mind bro!If Game is in Top 5 right now then we have a problem, fa real real. He practically name drops in every bar and its annoying as hell…makes it fuckin unbearable for me even to bump to. I admit that The Documentary was a classic for The Game, but since then shit aint been the same. I think there are alot more cats that can bite his head off when it comes to the rappin. Lupe,Kanye,Crooked I, Cory Gunz,Lil Boosie, Hell even Currensy will murder The Game on any song, and he aint even signed yet!! The Game is not Top 5.

  • THE SUN GOD

    THE TOP 5 RAPPERS IN THE GAME
    1. NAS: his last album was on a higher lyrical content then anybody else , his lyrics paint pictures in your mind

    2.JAY-Z : the american gangsta album was the on of the best albums last year once again his lyrics also paint pictues in your mind and alot of his music you can relate to

    3.KANYE WEST : where can i start with mr. west he maybe the best artist live , his music speaks for its self from the beat to his voice to the timing of he voice and the beat , he’s not just one of the best in the rapper game but to my opinon he maybe the best all around artist in all types of music

    4.COMMON : his last to albums were classic and 5 out of out his 8 albums are classic shit

    5.THE GAME : YES YES I KNOW I KNOW BUT WHAT CAN YOU SAY LET LOOK AT THE GAME , HE SINGLE HANDLY FUCKED OVER G-UNIT HE DROPS SOME OF THE BEST MIXTAPES , AND WHEN HE DROP A MIXTAPE ITS NEW MUSIC , NOT LIKE LIL WAYNE , WAYNE JUST RAPPER OVER THE HOTT SHIT THAT OUT AT THE TIME THAT NOT REAL MIXTAPE MUSIC , BUT FUCK ALL OF THAT HE HAS 2 CLASSIC ALBUM AND WITH ALL THE SONGS HE’S BEEN PUTTING OUT FOR HIS NEW ALBUM IT SOUNDS LIKE HES MAKING ANOTHER ONE

    game is trash, just listen to him he’s corny, he doesnt have much to say so the name dropping gives him subject matter plus how do u have a classic album with half the industry on it- its more like a mixtape- plus hes the biggest cornball in rap

  • suwhoop

    the games been hated on by everyone and hes still doin nice as shit after gettin kicked outta g unit so all u dope ass nigga best be shuttin tha fuck up. ya heard meh

  • MikeJones

    Game is absolute garbage. Now, coming from someone who likes Plies and that made-for-the -bitches-bullshit-boardroom-ordered music, I’d expect you to say this. I downloaded the game cd and it went flying out my car window not an hour later. Fuckin disgrace to hip hop.

  • KSA1001

    Not feeling LAX, Doctor’s Advocate was tight, The Documentary was over-rated. All he does is mention other rappers, and he never has his facts straight. Case in point “2001, round the same time Dre dropped 2001″ [2001 came out 11.16.99]
    New album he raps from the perspective of 2 Pac on the night he got shot, mentioning that he’s 24. If you gonna call out a great’s name, at least KNOW he was 25 when he died.

  • DMV hustler

    why do people keep mentioning kanye west LMAO, how is kanye the hottest, how?

    i keep seeing niggas put KANYE over niggas like Nas and Lupe, what in the hell

  • grant ny

    i find it funny how people say game stripped like he did, im a big game fan and know thier is holes in his story, he wanted to rap b4 he got shot stuff like that but theres no denying he was in a gang and banged not stripped come on leave it out, i belive he started when he was about 19, after change of heart i think games biggest lie is that he banged since and early age from the change of heart show its quite clear he did not.
    he contradicts himself yes but hes reckless beefer who dont give a fuck and i think thats what makes him so sick outside his albums, apart from id say hes number 2 behind kanye as far as his music goes, dude just dunt do wack raps, hes straight fire and the people who dont like him seem to not like him as a man not his music, so good point whoever wrote this, and XXL dont hate on game hes been on cover once maybe twice.

  • grant ny

    aslo AVENGER XL

    annnd also, all you dumb fucks who put “naah black though or tech 9 would murder him”, what have they done, theyd have 3 4 star albums rich as a mother fucker and big star, shut the fuck up we talking facts here not the best rapper in your hood, the list on quality of music facts got to be

    1. Kanye (not a massive fan but no denying it)

    2. T.I (i think hes underated and he murdered everyone on swagga like us)

    3. The Game (Fuck the haters keep the name dropping coming)

    4. Ludacris (Recent stuff is mind blowing)

    5. Nas ( i feel nas is making these lists due to his legacy not his recent work, his flow over the beat is so off point its horrible, but lyrics and his content puts him here)

    no doubt someone has some underground artists who aint done shit to put on they list??

    also name someone whos won beef with game lyrically??? nas jay and Em could that it.
