The Game’s bringing it back to his roots with the edgy new single “Bigger Than Me” – the first preview to his upcoming album, Blood Money La Familia, due in September. The second verse takes aim at the 2014 XXL Freshmen, in general, as Game calls ’em soft and that there’s no 3 Stacks in their class. Game continues addressing up and coming rappers (“emoji-ass rappers”) on the third verse and boasts himself and some peers in the process (even 50) calling himself the “black Marshall Mathers”. He may even cross the line by telling Frank Ocean he can, well… it feels bad to even type. At this point, you gotta hear Game’s latest below (that also has his usual nice name-drops, most notably the Hulk Hogan/Sting line and a nod to Complex).
As part of Pepsi’s 11 track visual album Beats of the Beautiful Game to be released June 10, Kelly Rowland has dropped “The Game” to heighten anticipation for the football inspired project.
“The Game” features some stellar vocals by Kelly Rowland who is belting like never before. Amidst recording her 5th studio album & getting married to Tim Witherspoon, Kelly will also be releasing a short film for “The Game” directed by Spike Lee.
The visual album by Pepsi will feature Janelle Monae, Rita Ora, Timbaland & many more.
Game capitalizes on the unfinished, leaked version of Drake’s official remix to YG’s “Who Do You Love” by taking over the empty space with a verse of his own. This version now becomes the most complete version of this DJ Mustard-produced banger (one of his best beats in my opinion).
As for Game’s bars, it’s nothing spectacular, but his flow and grimy delivery fit the song well and admittedly, the shoutouts are entertaining (vintage Game, huh?) . Listen/download below.
