The Game to Release ‘The Documentary 2.5′ Album Featuring Nas, Lil Wayne and More
Featuring Kendrick Lamar ("On Me"), Kanye West ("Mula"), Q-Tip ("Circles") and Dr. Dre ("Don't Trip"), among other heavy hitters, Game delivers a 19-track project that details the ups and downs of life since he arrived in the rap game in 2005.
While he's busy celebrating the release of his seventh album, it turns out that there's a second full album on the way, The Documentary 2.5. The Game is continuing to bring rhymers from all walks of hip-hop to the forefront for the companion album, due Oct. 16.
As a follow-up to The Documentary, the 35-year-old rapper is setting off his 10-year anniversary the right way. Following the ways of 2Pac and Biggie, who also put out double albums, the "Hate It or Love It" MC is following suit.
"I'm proud to announce to my fans the REASON it took so long to get this album to you... Because it's a MOTHAF-----' DOUBLE DISC!" Game said in a press release. "In a world where labels punk artists to keep their albums down to 10-12 songs... I don't give a f--- because 2 of my favorite artists 2Pac & Notorious B.I.G. put out dope double albums... I figured 10 years into an iconic career I'd give my fans the opportunity to have one from me."
The second LP brings hip-hop royalty on board including Nas, Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, Scarface and DJ Quik. The Game also brought some new blood to the ship. Kendrick Lamar was featured on the The Documentary 2 track "On Me" and more of Top Dawg Entertainment is set to appear on The Documentary 2.5. as Jay Rock and Schoolboy Q snag a feature on "Gang Bang Anyway." Ty Dolla $ign and YG are also listed for collaborations on the forthcoming album.
Aside from the skits, Game only has one song without a feature on the 2.5 album, the last track "Life." The Game is certainly uniting hip-hop artists, just as we imagine Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. would have eventually wanted had they not met their untimely departures.
