Critics have raved about Born 2 Rap, said by the rapper to be his last. Variety wrote that Born 2 Rap is "chock full of hard-hitting bars, aggressive punchlines, timeless samples, and vivid lyrical storytelling, it’s the hip-hop album we’ve been waiting for," while NME wrote that "...it’s a bit of a punch in the gut to learn that ‘Born 2 Rap’ is – allegedly – to be his last album. Luckily it’s a contender for one of his best." Hot New Hip Hop said, "[Born 2 Rap]...remains one of the finest projects Jayceon Terrell Taylor has delivered in recent memory."
ABOUT THE GAME:
Born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum Compton rapper, songwriter, producer, actor, and entrepreneur The Game locked down a place in the pantheon alongside greats of both coasts by a combination of bar-for-bar bravado, provocative observation, hard-hitting hooks, and sharp introspection. On November 29th, 2019 the Prolific rapper delivered his 9th album fittingly titled, Born 2 Rap.
The Game’s prior album 1992 debuted #1 on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums Chart and tied Drake for most #1 album debuts since the chart began in 2004. Also, the album gave The Game his eighth #1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, tying him for third with 2Pac and Lil Wayne amongst all acts. He started this impressive legacy with double-platinum 2005 full-length debut, The Documentary. It not only bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered GRAMMY® nods in the categories of Best Rap Song and “Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group,” but it also emerged as a classic avowed by Pitchfork among the Top 50 Albums of 2005 and chosen on Complex’s Classic Albums of the Last Decade. The 2006 follow-up Doctor’s Advocate retained his spot at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and went platinum. Maintaining positions in the Top 10, he ignited a prolific string of blockbuster releases—L.A.X. , The R.E.D. Album , Jesus Piece , Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf , The Documentary 2 , The Documentary 2.5. , and 1992 .
2018 saw a trio of recent singles achieve RIAA certifications with 100 [feat. Drake] platinum and El Chapo with Skrillex and All Eyez [feat. Jeremih] both gold as his total stream tally exceeded 3 Billion across platforms. Television and film credits span everything from Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and Larry King to Hell’s Kitchen and the upcoming All-Star Weekend directed by Academy® Award winner Jamie Foxx and co-starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Benicio del Toro. Not to mention, he sparked successful ventures in the world of legal cannabis with his Trees by Game brand, The Reserve dispensaries and partnerships with GFarmaBrands, among other launches.
The 2019 powerhouse lives up to the promise of his forthcoming album’s name especially on the street single West Side, and Anderson .Paak featured Stainless, where his rapping remains as on point as ever.
