With most people’s attention focused on the Game’s beef with Meek Mill, his new record has taken a backseat in the minds of many a rap fan.
Taking time off from dragging Meek and Beanie Segal over social media and wax, Game invited a number of people to Lavo this past week to get a quick listen to the new album he has in the works: 1992. The night was purposefully rather stripped back, to make sure enough emphasis was resting on the music.
Before premiering the album, the in-house DJ ran through classic west coast hits, Game’s number one songs, and also diced in some deeper cuts. After giving time for attendees to mingle and vibe to west coast hits, the DJ threw on 1992 and the talkative crowd quieted down to turn their attention to the Compton rapper’s newest project. Although we didn’t get to hear full cuts of each song, the crowd got more than enough to get them hyped up for the projected release. From what I heard, the record seems to have a theme of flipping LA tracks. One of the lead singles, “True Colors”, flips Ice T’s classic “Colors” track from YoMTV raps. The record seems to have given off a similar vibe to the Documentary 2 & 2.5 so if you enjoyed that double album, then make sure to snatch it off of iTunes when it drops.
