The 50 Best Timbaland Beats

19. The Game "Put You on the Game" (2005)

Album: The Documentary
Label: Aftermath, G-Unit, Interscope

Production for the Game's major label debut The Documentary paired the West Coast spitter with production luminaries from all over the country. Game and Timbaland met for "Put You on the Game" (with Tim's protege Danja in tow), which was released as a single after the short-lived partnership between Game and 50 Cent's G-Unit dissolved. It was weird hearing Game shout out G-Unit knowing the union had busted up, but Tim and Danja's banging array of shakers, rim shots, sinister synths and mellotron melodies didn't really leave very much room for thinking. "Put You on the Game" wasn't the hit previous Documentary singles were (blame the machinations of a vindictive 50 Cent), but it's still a monster.
