After listening to a couple of songs off this mixtape I was reminded of how excellent The Game is as a rapper. It’s a shame that his ego and 50’s ego got in the way of GOOD music, but hey, that’s life and at least The Game is once again on Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. In an attempt to give the people what the want, as his long-delayed R.E.D. album still has no release date, The Game has dropped this HUGE mixtape titled Purp & Patron, hosted by DJ Skee and Funkmaster Flex. The West Coast rapper has hooked up with some of THE biggest names in the game on this 29 track, double disc mixtape, including Lil Wayne, Dr. Dre, Fabolous, Wiz Khalifa, Pharrell, Ashanti, T-Pain, and more. Also included on the mix is the remix to Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” with Snoop Dogg, appropriately renamed “Purp & Yellow”, the colours of the L.A. Lakers.
