One of my favorite albums of all time gets represented today for Vinyl Wednesday. While I may be mostly known as a guy who listens to metal/rock I actually listened to this album yesterday as I walked to/from the grocery store. This album has an almost permanent status in my rotation and when I found this release at a local record shop I scooped it up without hesitation.
Bucking the trend of rock & metal releases that I normally showcase here, I decided to go with a fantastic little rap ditty from Game.
The Documentary is Game’s (formerly The Game) first major-label album and was released on Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, which is a subsidiary of Universal. Game is from Compton, California and this album has that fantastic West Coast vibe all over it. It just reaks of sunny days and drive-by shootings. Dr. Dre helped produce the album and other notable rappers such as 50 Cent, Eminem and Busta Rhymes are featured on the album.
