After having teased us with some Instagram pics and videos hanging out with each other, Game and Drake have come through with a collaboration that looks to be a single from The Documentary 2, the sequel to the former G-Unit rapper’s 2005 modern classic of the same name. The song, produced by Cardo and Johnny Juliano, sees the two giants waxing lyrical on losing friendships because of the money and fame, and shouting out some of their homies lost to violence or incarceration. Consisting of a soul sample and some trap drums, it’s a slow burner that won’t tear up the clubs, but it’s a strong indication that Game’s actually going to attempt to make the album live up to its namesake.
Mutual pal Lil’ Wayne, who is currently beefing with Birdman, the man he used to call daddy (nothing suss) recently mentioned that he believes that Drake and Nicki Minaj will likely leave Cash Money Records to escape the shady deals that he was victim to during his tenure at the label. This song is rife with references to that situation, including Drake firing off a few subliminals, saying “had niggas tell me to my face how we were family, and how they love me while they was skimmin’ off the budget”. Game also drops former foe 50 Cent’s name in his verse, possibly just for old time’s sake, and to appropriately reignite our nostalgia.
The duo have also apparently already shot a video for the song in Compton, and hopefully that will appear reasonably soon. DJ Envy debuted the song, and has thankfully managed to keep his drops minimal, so you can listen to the track without fear of having your eardrums blown out by excessive gunshot noises.
