The Source Grows Some Balls


Now that's a cover! I personally like the Suicidal Dre-Obsessed Game more than I like most rappers so as far as I'm concerned this is a good look. Fuck the pussy-ass hyper-masculinity of Curtis and his ilk. Bring me some creepy attention-grabbing vulnerability!

(And the Game stays winning against G-Unit.)

You ever notice how all Game talks about is six-fours and other rappers? I don't even know what to make of it. Maybe he's one of those people who spends his life on SOHH, debating who's better, Jay-Z or Nas. I think that's the only way to explain him.

corniest dude in the rap game

"corniest dude in the rap game"

Possibly but his stalker sincerity is kind of a oddly charming. I infinitely prefer it to the teflon Jay-Z biting super hustler that everybody else seems to be doing.

Plus, I think his corniness makes him an infinitely more interesting artist.

What makes him interesting, every song is like

I'm in my six-four, wearing red air ones, listening to Jay, Nas, NWA, Ice Cube, Dre, my eazy-duz-it tape cassette pookie gave me for christmas when I was three, and your bitch is bouncing her ass in my lap like hydraulics, what's up? Christopher Wallace was fat, Sean Combs was skinny, you couldn't namedrop as much as me if you tried, what a pity. When I go to Philly, I wear timb boots and talk to Eve. I don't like Beyonce because I'm a hater and she has bad weave. last night I sat in front of dre's house and peered inside. I have big chips, like Intel Inside. My male stripper friend is giving me brain, I make it rain, I used to sell caine, let me mention my six four again, it's off the chain. Why do I sound like Dr. Seuss, why are all my punchlines corny, like Papoose, because I could no sooner write a good line than have sex with a moose. In conclusion, Tony La Russa is from St. Louis, like Nelly; Nas and DMX once made a bad movie and it was called Belly. I wear chucks. Fuck Young Buck.

agreed.

What makes him interesting is the subtext of what he's saying, and the fact that he's either bi-polar or batshit crazy.

In between the generic shit he says on all of his albums is the apparent cries for help to go along with the homages.

Also, dude seems to exhibit this incredible lack of self-awareness or restraint. Who else would admit (seemingly jokingly, but not really) that Eminem "murdered him on his own shit?"

Shit like that makes him interesting as hell, and really makes me want to listen to what the hell he does next.

Pretty much accurately hilarious but when Game gets like hyper-sincere like on "Doctor's Advocate", he's pretty damn compelling.

Plus, "300 Bars" was the best diss track in a loooooong time. Absolutely destroyed G-Unit.

I take it Game never saw Southland Tales. If he did he'd realize that he is a pimp, and pimps don't commit suicide.

One.

Trey Stone said...

i dunno, i feel like this is just another case of a rapper benefiting from being "different," even if it's in the lamest way possible. not only is his obsessive/rap stan persona irritating but his rapping style is mind-numbingly dull. if he rapped in the unhinged way, say, Wayne does, things might be different, but he's just boring. rhyming fairly well and consistently doesn't excuse a general lack of charisma, much as heads' favorite emcees seem to fall under that category

Trey Stone said...

also, doesn't dude live in Glendale, SoCal now? speaking from first-hand experience -- decidedly un-gangsta. considering how many rappers have used the devastating fact that Curtis lives in Connecticut as a "diss" you think someone would get at Game for that

and much as i generally don't like the guy, i thought that diss 50 did where he mimicks Game's voice was more amusing than anything i remember from "300 Bars." he's the master of shit-talking
