On his second major-label release, Compton rapper and former Dr. Dre protege The Game returns with more of the West Coast gangsta flavor that has been his trademark since the 2004 indie debut, Untold Story. Doctor's Advocate's production credits include a long and eclectic list of super-producers such as DJ Khalil, Will.I.Am, Just Blaze, Kanye West, Scott Storch, and Hi-Tek, but not, oddly, Dre.


That might be the point. It's a testament to Dre's industry weight that he can dominate an LP without touching it. While his beats are conspicuously absent, Dre's influence can be heard on every track. And on the rare occasions when Game isn't directly talking to or about him, the Compton MC's vocal tone, lyrical content, and delivery are paying Dre homage. At the same time, the Game's Chronic-inspired lyrics and arsenal of clever punch-lines add up to an undeniable charisma all his own.

Artist Overview

Rapper Jayceon Taylor, better known in the hip-hop world as Game, turned to music for redemption after his wild youth led to a near-fatal shooting. By the time he recovered from his wounds, he had developed a formidable style rooted in old-school West Coast gangsta rap. It's fitting then, that he wound up recording for Dr. Dre's Aftermath label, which helped propel the rapper to massive success with his debut album, 2005's The Documentary. One year later, Doctor's Advocate also performed well, followed by 2008's LAX, and one of his biggest career successes in 2011, The R.E.D. Album.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (pp.111-112)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "He's more nimble and more assured than before, and he switches up his flow more often."

Entertainment Weekly (p.121)
- "[T]he rapper's gruff delivery juxtaposes nicely with beatsmith Scott Storch's ABBA-inspired disco-thump and singer Nate Dogg's clean tones on 'Too Much.'"

CMJ (p.35)
- "DOCTOR'S ADVOCATE is wall-to-wall intensity and danger, but never forgets to keep your head bobbing..."

Mojo (Publisher)
(p.105)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "Game sketches himself into his genre's history and eulogises his gangsta rap forefathers against melodic, golden-age-worthy beats..."
