The Game Recruits Kendrick Lamar To Rock Over A Clean Flip Of An Erykah Badu Classic
The Game and Kendrick Lamar have something of a history as two of Compton’s finest to arise since the days of Cube, Dre, Eazy, Ren & Yella. Their narratives run parallel; gifted, hustle-heavy MCs that were at one point or another taken into the care of the Doctor, and came out on the other end with massive careers. Now, the two are no strangers to sharing space on a track, in fact, a Section 80-era K Dot could be found on “The City” off Game’s fourth studio outing The R.E.D Album, but with his fifth on the way (featuring a massive list of guests with Kanye, Q-Tip, Ice Cube and plenty of others all slated to make appearances) it appears it’s time for their storylines to intersect once more.
Whether by accident or by design, the track “On Me’ surfaced from that quickly-approaching record, finding the duo bouncing back and forth over a brilliantly simple, super-clean flip of Erykah Badu‘s haze-for-days special “On & On.” And if the record sounds even remotely as compelling as this, The Game could be looking at a righteous return to the map. Hear The Game and Kendrick Lamar collide over “On Me” below preorder The Documentary 2 on iTunes today ahead of the official release next Friday, October 9th.
