Seattle, WA – Live Nation welcomes The Game to the Moore Theatre on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 8:00 p.m.
The Game is from the birthplace of Gangsta’ Rap, Compton, CA. But this is a new, different Westside story, one that joins with the Eastside while paying respects to rap’s hardcore pioneers of the ‘80s, NWA. The Game, a former gangbanger who turned to rap after being shot five times and left for dead, is about peace not war.
The Documentary, the debut album from The Game (a/k/a Jayceon Taylor), announced the arrival of the most significant West Coast gangsta rapper since Snoop Dogg more than a decade earlier. With guest spots from 50 Cent, Nate Dogg and several others, as well as producers from Dr. Dre to Kanye West to Just Blaze and tracks such as “Like Father Like Son,” “Church For Thugs,” “Dreams,” “Where I’m From” and “Westside Story,” The Documentary resurrected the truth, spirit and hope of hardcore rap.
Doctor’s Advocate — The Game’s follow-up to the multi-platinum Documentary, was released in November. Rolling Stone calls it, “classic West Coast hip-hop streamlined and spruced up for 2006, with sturdy boom-bap and breezy funk decorated with 808 bass, squiggly keyboards and plenty of hooks.”
