Game, Hood Morning (No Typo): Candy Coronas

Despite a solid track record through his first three LPs, Game has amassed a growing number of skeptics on the road to his fourth album—the perpetually delayed—The R.E.D. Album.
Since then, Jayceon “Game” Taylor’s career has had more twists and turns than the 405 Freeway, yet the undeterred Black Wall Street commander offers up his newest street release, Hood Morning (No Typo): Candy Coronas.

With in-house producer Mars handling the bulk of the soundscapes, Game attempts to reclaim as one of California’s finest on the Kanye West-inspired title track before backing up that boast on the horn-heavy “Mr. West,” spitting, “Beat sound like some crazy shit that Tim would do/Now when you see me, I’m the brown Eminem to you.” Chuck Taylor reunites with the good doctor and Snoop Dogg on “Drug Test,” which features a pulsating beat provided by DJ Khalil.

Unfortunately, Game’s unpredictable nature often results in confusion. After baring his soul over Boi-1da’s keys on the somber “Monsters In My Head” and the soulful “Grave Yard,” the Comptonite rehashes his age-old beef with G-Unit on “25 to Life” and then randomly jabs at Kanye West, Jay-Z and Kreayshawn on “Uncle Otis.” Fortunately, Hood Morning (No Typo): Candy Coronas has enough potency to keep listeners zan with that lean until Game prescribes The R.E.D. Album.—Meka Udoh
