I'm the only person who's ever said Game's production has carried him? Wow Steve, I never knew you were such a Game stan.

I don't dislike him but he's not an elite MC. There are tons of guys that are better lyrically. He's a decent storyteller with a cool flow but that's about the extent of his skill. Yes, his albums are all critically acclaimed but I think that has to do more with his production than his lyrics. I like Game, but I don't think he's a GREAT rapper. A good one, yes. But not great.

Actually I think a lot of reviews point to his lyrics when they talk about what they like about him. Also, he drops some pretty good punchlines from time to time.

Hes still above average when we look at the rap game as a whole and include everyone whos out there. He may not be elite but hes better then a lot of the other shit out there. I got this about at 4 stars. I would also say his other 2 albums are about 4 stars, and i have played all three albums at least twice this summer.

I'd give 4.5 to his first two.

I would say that Game is a good rapper. However, I have LAX at #3 behind Documentary and Doctor's Advocate....The Documentary 4.5, Doctor's Advocate 4 and LAX 3.5. My problem with Game is IMO he isn't doing anything to get better. Everything I hear from him sounds the same. If you have heard any of the tracks that are suppose to be on the 4th album, the tracks even sound worse than what was on LAX and I think that's why it keeps getting pushed back. I heard one track with Game and JUstin Timberlake with Pharrell production. That's why the CD keeps getting pushed back.

And Wayne we all knew that Letter To The King would be your favorite track on LAX...lol

As far as RED Album being pushed back, well, there has to be a reason. And yeah, Letter To The King is my favorite, lol.
