The Game ‘The Documentary 2’ (Artwork + Release Date)

The Documentary 2 is finally, and officially, dropping. 10 years later, Game boasts this sequel album will be even better than the original. That’s a high bar to top but perhaps Game can ride the wave of his Compton breathren as he indicates below in his message annoucing the news to his fans. Genuinely looking forward to what he has in store on September 25th.

To my true fans: it's been really dope to have you ridin' with me the last 10 years from the 1st Documentary til now…. I appreciate your loyalty & the patience you have displayed while waiting for me to finish #TheDocumentary2 & I am proud to give you my album cover shot by legend photographer & director @JonathanMannion (who also shot my 1st album cover) & graphic designer @CeoSelfmade for collaborating with Jonathan to bring such a classic image of me on the bridge in my hood….Cedar Block Piru in westside Compton, California… Everything about the photo shoot made me feel the exact same way I did when we were there 10 years ago & trust me when I say…. This album is better than my 1st for more than a few reasons…. But you don't have to take my word for it because you will see for yourself when it drops October 9th 2015 !!!! After Kendrick dropped his album, then Dr. Dre dropped #Compton then the movie doing 100 million after just 2 weeks….. This album will add to my cities continuous legacy !!!! I'm proud to be from #COMPTON & I wish #EazyE was alive to see us flourish yet again…… We on !!! This album cover represents the struggle to stay alive in a city where CRIPS & BLOODS have been at war since 1972 & it's because of you "THE FANS" I will again get to give you my documented accounts of life here in Los Angeles …. October 9th history will be made again #TheDocumentary2

Game’s Documentary 2 is still on the way and after Drake’s star-studded foam party at his L.A. mansion the other day, Game and Drizzy split off to Compton to shoot the video to the upcoming single “100”. Here’s a BTS video:

Speaking with The Cruz Show yesterday, The Game revealed some details and progress on his anticipated Documentary 2 sequel album. It’s about 90% done and he’s waiting on Dre to come back from vacation for the finishing touches. Plus, Kanye, Timbaland, Swizz, Just Blaze, and Scott Storch will all return for the sequel album.

In fact, Game spent an entire week with ‘Ye in the studio, saying, “You get a good solid week out of ‘Ye if you have history.”

Watch the interview and a new freestyle over “Nas Is Like” and more.

The Game ‘Documentary 2’ release date

Big news for Game fans and fans of his debut album, The Documentary.

Hood morning (no typo): Spent the last 48 hours in the studio putting the final touches on #YearOfTheWolf & even though the date is pushed until Oct 14th I can promise my fans this #BloodMoney album will be better than anything else dropping this year ! Thanks for everyone who was apart of it & shout to my hittas @OfficialYonni & @MoussaGArt for grinding with to make the last minute changes to put this album in the can….. #YearOfTheWolf is finally done !!!!! Now on to “The Documentary 2” dropping January 18th…. Exactly 10 years from “The Documentary”….. Nobody is fucking with 2 !!!!!!!!! So don’t drop nowhere near me….. You’ve been warned ! For the people out there like me…. I salute all who are relentless at defying the odds to ensure their own success. Those who dream while still awake…. It is us that hold the keys to the future, keep grinding.. #BloodMoney.

I bolded out what’s important. I love the full-circle 10 years to the day moment he’s setting up for Documentary 2. Now it just better not get pushed back. But given that it’s not yet September, I think Game and the label will have plenty of time to get things ready for then.

Not only that, but Game had this quote about the production, which will feature… you guessed it… the man in the photo above.

I’m going back to the Just Blazes, Scott Storches, the Dr. Dres. We gon’ get it handled.

Stream portions of the interview on the L.A. airwaves today. A “Hood Morning” today, indeed.

Game ‘Documentary 2’ 2015

I think I’m not alone in hip hop fans who think The Documentary was Game’s best album. He exploded onto the scene in January of 2005 with the debut album and now, it looks like he’s going to serve us the sequel 10 years later.

In a new interview with Justin Credible, Game announces Documentary 2 as the follow up album to this September’s Blood Money La Familia. He goes on to say he’ll be working with Just Blaze, Scott Storch, and of course, Dr. Dre on the production.
