Game Reveals Release Date, Cover Art For “Documentary 2”
10 years later, the sequel to The Game's debut album, The Documentary, is coming.
Due out September 25, The Documentary 2 will follow the 2014 compilation Blood Moon and 2012's Jesus Piece.
The cover is shot in black-n-white by the famed Jonathan Mannion, and features the rapper posed in front of a chainlink fence on the bridge in Compton where he grew up. The title is done in blue, while his moniker is in red, a nod to the Los Angeles gang culture.
While details about The Documentary 2 have yet to be officially announced, Game has been in the studio with the likes of Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Timbaland, Sevyn Streeter and Keyshia Cole.
"This album is better than my 1st for more than a few reasons," said Game. "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 !!!
"Dre said this is the best hip hop album in the last 5 years at least…… & we still here 10 years later," he continued.
