Sit down and listen to the story of the Westside.

Game has dreams of success after looking death in it’s eyes.

You can either hate the hood or love it. But you still living in it.

He can take Cali to new heights.

You already know how Game and 50 do it.

He does what he does and he don’t need your love.

And he won’t hesitate to cap you.

Let him put you on Game.

He had to start over to get where is.

He had to live on the run because life tomorrow wasn’t promised. Lived day to day.

But there’s no more games now. He’s killing shit now.

We ain’t playing around either. Talk shit we returning the favor.

Where I’m from shit died down a little but I’m bringing this shit back.

He’s in love and the hood is breaking that love.

He’s commiting to a better life for his child. Life’s been hell but his child is his heaven.

This album is classic.

Major impact.

The production is tope notch.

The first half of the album has more of gangsta boogie vibe and the second half has more of a R&B funk vibe.

There isn’t a single track that doesn’t bump.

One of my favorite albums ever.

The songs come together perfectly. No rough transitions.

This album is plain stuggle and life depicted in art.

The whole narrative and everything about this project is top notch.

I loved it.

QUESTION: Is this Game’s best album?
What album should I review next?
