The Game – The Documentary 2.5 Review

This album is the second disc of his release last week and it continues the standard of greatness. There is at least a few tracks for every Hip Hop listener and they are done very well.

The production is good and keeps his west coast feel well and truly alive. Each song may have the diversity to keep its individuality, but it definately has that west influence through all of it. There are no issues with the backings on this as he covers every aspect of Hip Hop with it.

The lyricism is good and shows he is still improving upon his previous performances. The way he moves within the beats shows great talent as Game has shown every step of his discography. There is little to improve on here, but maybe some radio friendly songs to appeal to the mainstream.

The features all help flesh this out and, while they all put in a lot of effort, show that Game is one of the best out there. Each guest shows that they have some talent and that they can put passion into thier work, but few come close to the main artist. There are no issues with his selection however because each helps make the project more cohesive.

Overall, this album is a fantastic continuation of his previous work that shows Game is not missing a step. If Game can keep this up, then he will truly be one of the greats.

Big Grams – Big Grams Review

This project is great as it brings a lot of different aspects to the table. Big Boi bringing his veteran status while Phantogram utilise thie great production and vocals to swirl into a lot of great moments.

The production is amazing with a lot of unique sounds and patterns to show that both Phantogram can play instruments as well as craft a smooth sound. the beats are refreshing with the use of conventional instruments instead of machines that help lift the project to new hieghts.

The lyricism is good with Big Boi doing his thing, and doing it well, while Phantogram use thier singing to add another dimension to the songs. The combination of rapping and singing blends together to make tracks that everyone can enjoy.

The features are good and help bring Phantogram’s skills further into the rap game. While Run The Jewels use thier rhymes to add more layers to thier tracks and Skrillex brings his unique backing to show what they can do over the top. For the length of project, this level of guests is perfect.

Overall, this is a good project for Hip Hop and a great project for Big Grams. This is a good landmark for Big Boi and it helps to put Phantogram on the map for rappers.
