The Game took us into the weekend with the release of his album 1992, which took us on a journey of his life during that year. 1992 was a significant year for the West Coast rapper, so much so that he named his album after that year. The album boast 13 tracks with the last one being a bonus track featuring Jeremih.

The album was dubbed a #NoFeature album, however, I guess the bonus track had to make it to the album. There were samples from Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues", Grandmaster Flash's "The Message" and Soul II Soul's "Back to Life". Game also showed love to Wu-Tang Clan in his song "I Grew Up on Wu-Tang" and Tupac in "The Juice". 

When asked about the album titled, the rapper explained: "1992 was the first year that I joined a gang. At that point of my life, I was getting pulled in both directions. I grew up in a Crip neighborhood but my brothers were Bloods. It was sort of a tug-of-war" he explained to talk show host Wendy Williams. He went on to say, "That's how it is in Compton. Once you get close to your teenage years, gangs start pulling at you. Its almost 99 percent that you'll probably join a gang."

Sheesh, that's real..... a little too real as a matter of fact! It's almost like you don't really have a choice of being a gang member or not. Anywho, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey that this album took me on. I felt like I was right there experiencing the high's and low's with The Game. My favorite tracks from the album have to be "Baby You" featuring Jason Derulo (another feature on the #NoFeature), "The Juice" and "92 Bars". I could appreciate the variety of songs that were given on this album.

Did you get a chance to check out the new album? If so, what were your favorite song off the album? If you didn't get a chance to check out the album, you can listen below and it back to 1992.
