iTunes Review

With his third, and allegedly final, album, The Game returns to the subject he knows best: his home turf of Los Angeles. LAX is conceived as a collage-like portrait of Game’s past and present life in Southern California, as “LAX Files,” “Cali Sunshine,” and “House of Pain” weave references to local avenues, neighborhood flavors, and people. Even the sound design makes subtle reference to classic California electro. “Ya Heard,” “Let Us Live,” and the brilliant Kanye West production “Angel” echo the bass-heavy, squiggly-synth sounds so beloved by fans of L.A. radio. Lyrically, Game is still playing the maverick, unafraid to speak his mind and name names. In regards to his contentious relationship with mentor Dr. Dre (who was originally set to produce LAX by himself), Game says on “Dope Boys:” “And tell Dr. Dre to pick up a phone / Before I climb through his window like, ‘Nigga I'm Home’.” Aside from Game’s emotional dynamism, “My Life” conjures a verse that stands with the best lyricism you will hear all year: “Walk through the gates of hell, see my Impala parked in front / With the high beams on, me and the devil sharing chronic blunts / Listening to The Chronic album, playing backwards / Shooting at pictures of Don Imus for target practice.”

The Game-L.A.X.

Heralded as the next one to be added to Hip Hop royalty, way back during his debut, The Game is finally at album number three, and evident last. Having heavy beef with various artists, particularly G-Unit and 50, he’s ready to finish his trilogy of a career with L.A.X. L.A.X. Files: J.R. Rotem continues to provide great beats, as this west coast rolling is chilled and dramatic, definitely fitting in Game’s style. The smooth hook adds to the good, however Game’s double timing flow doesn’t fair as well. Sounds nice, but lacks in flow. 3.5/5 State Of Emergency: Cali anthemed “State Of Emergency” brings fellow West Coast legend, Ice Cube in for some assistance on the hook. The big pity is that Cube doesn’t actually drop a verse, but merely adds menace through his vicious flow. Lyrically it isn’t bad. 3.5/5 Bulletproof Diaries: Raekwon the chef joins Game to create a coast to coast collaboration. Each brag about their respective hoods, but the repetitive loop in the production gets a bit dull. This makes for a decent track. 2.5/5 My Life: Lil’ Wayne samples his hook on Birdman’s “So Tired” and throws some autotune to make it more soulful and heartfelt. Cool & Dre’s calm piano keys and drums provide the perfect background for Game’s lyrics. The track works nicely, as Game spits about those that have fallen among other issues, while Wayne croons. 4/5 Money: Similar production effect that Rick Ross’ “Push It” had, Cool & Dre use a sample that is constantly used. The production is solid, however Game doesn’t quite connect lyrically and seems quite lazy. The hook is simply mediocre and the track doesn’t fulfill potential. 3/5 Cali Sunshine: The unique and odd production of Nottz works, as Bilal croons a simple hook. Game flows alright, but the track is just mediocre and not that impressive. 3/5 Ya Heard: Game’s lyrics here are nothing new, simply speaking about his jewelry and material luxuries, while he complains about not getting enough recognition and then proceeds to name drop various people. This track would be a skipper, if not for Ludacris’ hilarious and show stopping verse that truy shows why Luda is one of the wittiest out there. Production was decent. 3/5 House Of Pain: Obviously bringing back N.W.A.’s “Real N***az Don’t Die” production, Toomp just pumps up the production with horns and heavier guitar riffs. The droning and monotonous riff is a little too much and doesn’t quite compliment Game’s lyrics, rather drowns him out. The track is just too much production and not enough Game. 2.5/5 Gentleman’s Affair: Chilled production and Ne-Yo’s decent hook create a mediocre track. Game speaks about his sexual endeavors with the ladies, as Ne-Yo plays the nice, gentlemanly player and Game plays the hardcore thug. Its just a decent commercial track. 2.5/5 Let Us Live: Finally Game hits a gem, as Scott Storch’s bassline and Chrisette Michelle’s jazzy hook provide the perfect elements. Game does his thing lyrically and sounds at home on the low bassline. 4.5/5 Touchdown: 1500 Or Nothin’s production works nicely with Raheem DeVaughn’s light and sultry hook. Game spits about getting with the ladies, except the approach is much more direct, as the production gives a dim lit bedroom and Game with his lady. Decent. 3/5 Angel: Common opens things up here with a decent verse that leads to the smooth and building hook. Kanye’s production is definitely on point, as the sample works nicely with the chilled instrumentation. Game sounds comfortable and offers some solid rhymes. 3.5/5 Never Can Say Goodbye: An ode to the deaths of legends Pac and Biggie, as Game uses a different flow here, while Latoiya croons nicely. A solid track here that has Game reminiscing and reflecting, spitting with good imagery. 3.5/5 Dope Boys: Street single that was released, Travis Barker bangs on the drums, while calming keys provide a nice effect. The ticking clock adds to the high energized vibe of the track, while Game fires out lines and gets back to his vicious and angered style. Dropping even some of his best lines like “b****es don’t say to me, I’m like a wedding ring”. Good street track. 4/5 Game’s Pain: Released appropriately during the summer time, Keyshia’s soulful and soothing hook works well with the chilled cali hangout production. Game name drops plenty of rappers to pay homage to them, while creating an enjoyable relaxed summer jam that is probably Game’s most relaxed moment on this album. 4/5 Letter To The King: Hi-Tek’s spaced out production and soulful sample are fitting for the track. Allowing Game and Nas to both spit some meaningful bars. The track finishes the album out nicely. 4/5 Ain’t F***in With You: Solid production by Trackmasters, Game keeps pace with the production. Nice bonus. 3.5/5 Game’s third and supposed final album isn’t bad. It just isn’t quite the classic masterpiece everyone wanted or the album you would want to end a career on. While there are nice tracks, the socially conscious “Let Us Live”, chilled summer cut “Game’s Pain” and the mournful “My Life”, the album is filled with decent tracks. By no means are they horrible or bad, they’re just simply mediocre and not as provoking as some of the tracks on Doctor’s Advocate or Documentary. There’s no stunning single, that Documentary had, or any genuine moments like “Doctor’s Advocate” with Busta, but some decent tracks. “Letter To The King” finishes things nicely, “Dope Boys” serves the streets and “Angel” has a nice sample. Above average album that is a solid addition to Game’s catalogue, but not one to end a career on. Rating: 8 out of 10

Biography

Born: November 29, 1979 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Compton's own Game (aka the Game and Hurricane Game) issued his debut LP, The Documentary, in 2004 through Aftermath/G-Unit/Universal. With everyone from Dr. Dre and 50 Cent to Nate Dogg, Kanye West, and Just Blaze contributing to the album, The Documentary made it clear from the outset that geographic squabbles weren't a part of Game's agenda. Rapping hadn't been at first, either. Having gotten involved in the drug trade after a rough childhood, it took being shot during a home invasion to cause...
