The Game Takes Listeners Back to ‘1992’ on New Album: Listen
The Game has kept quite the busy schedule since releasing The Documentary 2 (which hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200) last year, from announcing the new mobile app game Block Wars and dropping a soundtrack album of the same name, to exchanging diss tracks with Meek Mill in their on-going feud. Back with his newest studio album —1992, which he released on Fri. (Oct. 14) — The Game delivers a 13-track experience that uncovers the highs and lows of the Compton MC’s life during that year.
The cover art for the album shows a young man in a tug-of-war battle, with men on one side dressed in blue, and the other side dressed in red, a battle The Game faced during his younger days growing up in the city of Compton.
The album only hosts one feature, from Jeremih, on the bonus track “All Eyez”. 1992 also reveals The Wu-Tang Clan as an early influence on The Game (“I Grew Up On Wu-Tang”), and references the 2Pac-starring ’92 crime film Juice, which followed a group of Harlem teens growing up around violence, and the daily struggles they face — an apparent theme on The Game’s latest LP.
