“Ali Bomaye” is a solid, bass-heavy record by Game, featuring 2 Chainz & Rick Ross and lifted from the deluxe edition of his latest album, Jesus Piece.
The Black Metaphor production is inspired by the film, Ali, and titled in reference to Muhamaad Ali’s 1974 “Rumble in the Jungle” fight against George Foreman in Congo where the natives heckled “Ali Bomaye!“; which translates “Ali, kill him!”
In addition to the featured emcees, Chris Brown, DJ Khaled and French Montana shoot cameos for the video, shot in Los Angeles. Read More
Game has realized he can’t stand on his talent alone, hence his overuse of featured artists, constant attention-whoring and frequent ripping of other rapper’s style. Apparently he can’t put on a show himself either, so he relied on the guest appearances to maintain the momentum of the House of Blues show.
The Compton rapper launched the show in the most blasphemous way possible–a costumed Jesus puts a “Jesus piece” around his neck. Tyler, the Creator, Tank, Mac Miller, Tyga and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony later stormed the stage. Read More
Flutes, rattles and creepy cooing introduce “Murder,” the latest installment of Game’s Sunday Service series. Being the uncouth individual he is, Game voluntarily references vague topics that are best left in the rumor mill.
“Who the f*ck killed Michael Jackson, his physician? He died slow in his music, you ain’t really listen. Now his daughter getting slapped by his sister and that’s probably gonna kill their mama. So I’m sorry Ms. Jackson, I’m sorry Ms. Houston. Cissy, might shed a tear, but ain’t no sissy ’cause Whitney’s still with me. And her death kinda hurt a ni*ga.” Read More
During the pre-production of Game’s Jesus Piece, he claimed the album, titled Soundtrack to Chaos at the time, would not host any features. Somewhere in-between then and now, he came to the realization that his clout with radio and the album-buying public was not as strong as he may have perceived. Out of the 16 songs included on Jesus Piece, there are only three where he’s the sole artist, and I’m assuming the samples used may contain some sort of voice reference.
‘Put the purp in the blunt and get high’ with Game, Chris Brown, Lil’ Wayne, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa, per their request. “Celebration” is the first song and video from Game’s forthcoming album, Jesus Piece, due out in December.
The video is as contrived as the song, and the fashion among the rappers (CB excluded) is… bizarre. Game goes from wearing a Trukfit tee to a red tank top with feline print lips; Tyga is seen sporting a leather tank top and snakeskin snap back (remember, it’s summertime); Wiz wore tight, capri jeggings. It was like a Milli Vanilli video for new-age thugs. If you’re into fair-skinned women mindlessly prancing around a park while a pseudo helpless darker-skinned woman gets drenched in beer, this video is for you.. Read More
Although touring in support of The R.E.D. Album, The Game is courteous enough to offer his fans a mixtape filled with new music. California Republic is the mixtape, and it boasts features from Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, Lupe Fiasco, Lil’ Wayne, Pharrell, Meek Mill, Fabolous and more.
‘California’ has a whopping 24 tracks, with beats produced by Tyler of Odd Future, Lex Luger, the Neptunes and more. Read More
Pharrell provides a cinematic production for Game to spit over. The braggadocios ”It Must Be Tough” is the product of the collaboration, and it will appear on his upcoming DJ Skee-hosted mixtape, California Republic(due out April 5). ‘California’ precedes his upcoming fifth studio album, FIVE: Fear Is Victory’s Evolution.
Along with ‘Tough’, “Greystone” has leaked ahead of California Republic’s Thursday release date. The former G-Unit soldier enlists Fat Joe and Young Chris for the soulful ode to the Beverly Hills mansion.
Earlier tonight, I questioned VH1′s judgement for privileging Game with a behind-the-scenes special; after watching the video for “The City,” I’m reminded of the intensity Jayceon reintroduced to the industry.
Nowadays, it’s a rarity for a hip-hop video, or any video for that matter, to be visually captivating from start-to-finish. Matt Alonzo presents a cinematic experience with Game’s latest visual accompaniment. And Kendrick Lamar‘s contribution elevates the song to a height unsurpassable by any current rapper. I’m thoroughly impressed. Watch below! Read More
