Compton rapper The Game will release his hotly anticipated follow-up album The Documentary 2 on October 9th via Blood Money/Fifth Amendment/Entertainment One Music. Fans who pre-order the 19-track LP now will also receive an instant grat track titled “Dedicated” featuring Future and Sonyae.
“To my true fans: it’s been really dope to have you ridin’ with me the last 10 years from the 1st Documentary till now,” says Game. “I appreciate your loyalty & the patience you have displayed while waiting for me to finish #TheDocumentary2. 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! 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 city’s continuous legacy! I’m proud to be from #COMPTON & I wish Eazy E 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 that I will again get to give you my documented accounts of life here in Los Angeles. October 9th – history will be made again.”
