Nearly 15 years since his debut The Documentary, The Game celebrates his birthday with his ninth and final album Born 2 Rap on Black Friday.
The Compton rapper, who turns 40 on Friday, assembles a star-studded lineup for the 24 tracks (plus an intro), an homage to his “all-time favorite player” Kobe Bryant. The album kicks off with “City of Sin” featuring Ed Sheeran and closes with the British crooner on “Roadside.”
Other guests include Chris Brown, Bryson Tiller, 21 Savage, Miguel, Travis Barker, Dom Kennedy, Trey Songz, and Anderson .Paak, who appears on the single “Stainless.” The late Nipsey Hussle also makes an appearance on “Welcome Home.”
“I’ve had a great run & surpassed my rap goals along time ago…. it’s by God’s grace that I’m able to still be here to deliver full projects at this caliber in an industry where I’ve seen artists come & go,” said Game. “It will always be ‘QUALITY’ over ‘QUANTITY’ from where I stand. The REAL music will always prevail & this album will cap off an amazing run.”
