The Game Gives Crips & Bloods History Lesson, Talks Working With Nas
The Game explains the gang history in LA, shares his top 4 rappers of all time, and talks working with Nas & Dr. Dre on “The Documentary 2.”
The Game’s NYC press tour ahead of The Documentary 2 continues as he sits down with Mass Appeal to discuss gang history in LA, what it was like working with Nas and Dr. Dre on the album, and much more.
The Game explains why he doesn’t just rock red (“I like blue. Shit is a cool color”) and gives an awesome history lesson on the genesis of the Bloods vs Crips rivalry in Los Angeles, which dates back to 1972. He says he’ll fold gang history into a skit on his album.
He talked working with Nas on the album on a track called “Ghetto” and listed Nas as a member of his “Mount Rushmore” of greatest rappers, which also includes Jay Z, Biggie, and Tupac.
He went on to explain why The Documentary 2 will be 38 songs and detail the history of his friendship with Kendrick Lamar. All in all a great interview. Watch part 1 above and parts 2 and 3 on the links above.
