Album Review: The Game – L.A.X.

25 08 2008


4/5

In the early 2000’s, G-Unit achieved success as a crew by dominating the mixtape and mainstream scene, and appealing to all regions on the map. For the East they had 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Yayo; the South had Young Buck, and the West had The Game. The success of his fellow G-Unit members helped introduce The Game to the world with his debut LP The Documentary. With two mainstream 50 Cent assisted singles (three if you include “Westside Story”), The Documentary received positive recognition and has sold over two million units. Shortly after, 50 Cent and The Game fell out resulting in The Game’s departure and a claim from 50 Cent stating that he wrote a majority of the album.

Over a year and numerous diss songs later, The Game had to show that he can make it by himself with his post-G-Unit album, Doctor’s Advocate. While Doctor’s Advocate was a near platinum album, The Game proved he possesses the skills to make a high quality album without G-Units support, show growth and consistency.

Now that The Game is a respected name in hip hop, he is back with his third release L.A.X. (abbreviated for Life and Times).

The Game LAX Bonus Tracks

The Games third LP LAX will be in stores this Tuesday. It’s a nice album and it’s been in heavy rotation in my whip all week. Like most highly anticipated albums, there is a deluxe edition which will get you a couple of extra joints for a couple of extra dollars. The Cool n Dre produced “Big Dreams” was the first song to leak from LAX, and was originally planned to be the first single. Apparently it only made the album as a bonus track. “Camera Phone”, another track with Ne-Yo hit the net last week and is included on the deluxe edition as well.
