The Game has thankfully taken a break from his feud with Meek Mill to drop his latest mixtape/album, 1992.
The 13-track project features music inspired by Wu-Tang Clan (“I Grew Up On Wu-Tang”) and Tupac Shakur (“The Juice” and “All Eyez”) and Ice-T (“True Colors/It’s On”). The title also honors what was obviously an important year in Game’s life.
No rappers show up on the project, which was billed as a #NoFeatures project, but Jeremih and Jason Derulo do show up to assist on vocals on the aforementioned track “All Eyez” and “Baby You” respectively. “All Eyez” recently climbed to #7 on Billboard’s Rhythmic National Airplay Chart. The project ends with the diss track “92 Bars.”
“After being a part of hip hop for over a decade, I’m just appreciative of the fact that my fans have been so supportive & remain to be a driving force when I release albums,” Game said. “#1992 is a drift through my childhood, transitioning into my teenage years in a city that was on fire & plagued by gang activity. I can’t wait for people to listen to how I survived & the stories I lived through to tell…”
