Following the release of The Documentary sequel last fall, The Game is back… appearing in an upcoming docuseries for A&E called Streets of Compton.
The hometown rapper has recorded a companion music project of the same title, boasting 11 new songs.
The three-part series that will air on A&E will chronicle the city’s history, while illustrating how the iconic music, culture and style that came out of the area in the ’80s and early ’90s were influenced by the drugs, gangs and political turmoil of the time.
In addition to rappers from N.W.A., The Game and Kendrick Lamar telling their personal stories of growing up in Compton, it also features interviews with current and former Compton residents — including actress Niecy Nash, comedian Paul Rodriguez and musicians like MC Eiht, AD, Payso and Problem. The Game’s mother Lynette Baker, father G.A. Taylor and manager Cash Jones as well as Venus and Serena Williams’ father Richard Williams and former Black Panther Robert Johnson are also interviewed.
Parts one and two of Streets of Compton premieres on A&E on June 9 at 9PM & 10PM ET/PT, with the third and final hour airing June 16 at 10PM ET/PT.
Game’s project releases June 17 via his Blood Money imprint. Listen to the first leak off the project, titled “Roped Off”, below.
