"Celebration" is largely culled from Game's long list of influences. The record itself--from chrous to production--is a reappropriation of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony classic "1st of the Month." Then there's what some would call feature overkill, with Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Tyga, and Wiz Khalifa all making appearances. But somehow it works. The song is just too fun and good-spirited to hold a lasting grudge with. Yes, there's a lot of biting and lifting, but Game's intentions are pure, and the record is clearly more of a homage than a rip. That it was only a modest success is the real surprise.
