The Game LAX Reveiw

The Game LAX Reveiw
Fresh off of The Doctor's Advocate, The Game returns with his third LP "LAX".

"LAX" starts off with a prayer from embattled rapper DMX. The intro sets the

tone for things to come. On LAX Files the game takes the listener on a ride

through what a day in California is like. He narrates in detail a an unknown

crooner sings "raised in the city of angles where safe and danger switch lanes

so stranger drive slow/ Where beggars and gangstas fast women and dank are Just

part of the face that we show/ We got mountains and ocean We move in slow motion

Off that sticky that you all love to blow/ I swear ain't nothing better there

that's why we all take our hats off to you for one mo'". "LAX Files" gets the

album off to a good start. Throughout the album, Game stars pretty consistent

but doesn't seem to connect well on some tracks. Gentleman's Affair feat. Ne-yo

comes is the game trying to be a gangster and a gentleman and accomplishes

either. Instead this comes off as a cheesy approach of trying to increase his

female fan bash. "Bulletproof Diaries" features New York legend and Wu-Tang

brethren Raekwon. Game and Raekwon trade bars over an erie soundscape supplied

by west coast production staple Jelly Roll. Raekwon fans will be sure to run

this one back a few times. "State Of Emergency" features West Coast Pioneer Ice

Cube. This just is one of the stand out tracks guaranteed to get everyone

hyped. The game supplies the verses as Ice Cube does the chorus. This track is

reminiscent of N.W.A and has that classic west coast gangster feel. For the

first half of the album Game sounds like he's onto something good. The second

half of the album is where it takes a detour. Halfway thorough the album

everything starts to slow down. The game still delivers decent verses but the

production doesn't seem to be as on point ans the previous songs. Also, the Game

seems to not have as much energy and conviction as the previous songs. The good

news is that this doesn't last too long. Towards the end of the album the Game

gets back to business. All in all, LAX shows us that Game still has the west on

his back.
