After over a decade in the rap game, the Game is now releasing The Documentary 2, the sequel to his highly acclaimed and multi-platinum 2005 Interscope debut, and what better way to celebrate such longevity than by checking off the Compton rapper’s best songs. It’s been something of a rollercoaster ride for the Game, who has seen megastardom, legal turmoil, and a handful of rap feuds, chief among them his beef with one-time associates 50 Cent and G-Unit, in his career. There’s been a lot of storm weathering, but the Game remains a viable name in rap, even now.
Over the course of his seven albums and countless mixtapes, the Game has released his share of menacing deep cuts and straight bangers. The former Aftermath signee has been surrounded by a host of talent since he teamed up with Dre, and it’s reflected by the strength of his catalog. Along with his mentor, he’s worked with super producers like Kanye West, Timbaland, Pharrell, Just Blaze, Cool & Dre, Hi-Tek, DJ Premier, DJ Toomp, DJ Quik, and Boi-1da, among others. He’s rapped alongside Nas, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Eminem, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, (Young) Jeezy, Rick Ross, and 2 Chainz. He’s had his share of big hits.
These are the best of them. Without further ado, here are the Game’s 25 best songs.
