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.

The Roots Picnic Lineup

This year’s annual Roots Picnic is another event to try and get to. The 7th version of the fest features a jam-packed lineup revealed today, headlined by Snoop Dogg, who will be performing his myriad classics with the backing of The Legendary Roots Crew. I’d also be excited to see singers Janelle Monae and Jhene Aiko and a variety of rappers on the rise in Action Bronson and A$AP Ferg, and DJ sets like AraabMUZIK and Just Blaze. If you’re looking for a weekend to go to Philly, here’s your pick. Video of the announcement below:
