When Game does decide to retire, it should be at a time where he no longer needs to validate his legacy. Game can’t leave rap alone now, but his transition from trendsetter to trend hopper makes it seem like he’s chasing rather than leading.

Pitchfork
The veteran rapper’s 29-track, 112-minute album is a bloated attempt to remind everyone he’s a great MC, flitting between styles without rendering any of them memorable.

Slant Magazine
When he’s run out of ideas, the Game predictably resorts to antagonizing real or imagined foes.

AllMusic
It's undoubtedly among the most fascinating and audacious works in the rapper's catalog. Game delivers nearly two hours of material with help from high-profile production collaborators and more guest rappers and singers than tracks.

The Game must pay $7M in damages after losing his sexual assault trial and since he did not have the money, this album was born.

Not only did the jury find him liable for sexual battery, but he also decided to make this never-ending shitty record to try and pay for all of it. The most pathetic part was his 10-minute long Eminem "diss" track, where he didn't say anything of value at all, and which he only made to develop some drama between the two so he could get some numbers.

midmatic: filler vs. skip

You know why 30 songs in a logic album 'Vinyl Days' work?
Because they are 1 or 2 minutes long, so you can't get bored, and logic make some silly skits like Nardwar, and it works. Then you are curious what logic will do next and encourage you to listen. In the game situation, there is nothing like that, just bad, bland songs that make you want to close this album quickly. The game comes from the worst side, where it doesn't know what the album was supposed to sound ... read more

A TEN MINUTE DISS TRACK??? MF THAT’S NOT EVEN A BEEF NO MORE THAT’S JUST REALLY FUCKING DEPRESSING

“If gay is happy, I’m Isaiah Rashad.” yk, after Violence, i genuinely thought The Game was gonna change. i thought The Game was gonna have everyone witness a new renaissance of his work and that he’d stop making projects that sound lack lustre in quality. i was wrong. so wrong. this is a terrible project for multiple reasons. the first of which being that ... read more

This is the definition of bloated. Drillmatic clocks in at just short of 2 hours across 30 tracks, and within it there’s no shortage of mind numbingly bland beats, filler tracks, and weak bars, especially on the “conscious” songs. Game’s pen is at an all time low here, obsessing rappers names as double entendres and repeating concepts and ideas over the immense tracklist. It gets to the point that I feel like I could outrap him right now with how predictable he can get. ... read more
