Born II Rap in 11 days………………. [Nov 29th 2019] I promise another classic… my day 1 fans know what it is… I will not disappoint !!!! S/O to the beautiful soon to be mothers @jazzlynsworld @__kokaine__ @latriecejonae @yagirl.bree_ @ebby.b00 @lilmama_gina @micheladriii @bellaxxmimi & @leexy_renee for coming through on short notice, listening to, understanding my vision & participating in the cover art for this album. The concept behind this photo goes way beyond what you see upon 1st glance & I absolutely cannot wait for all of you to hear the music that goes along with the album. Appreciation for my lil brother @jamilnotjamal for capturing my vision as well as @sandracstevenson & @chalicerecording for always being so welcoming, providing a home for me & my albums for the past 15 years of my career. I’ve had a great run & surpassed my rap goals along time ago…. it’s by God’s grace that I’m able to still be here to deliver full projects at this caliber in an industry where I’ve seen artists come & go. It will always be “QUALITY” over “QUANTITY” from where I stand. The REAL music will always prevail & this album will cap off an amazing run. I’m grateful for all the producers & artists who’ve helped this album become what it is & I am more excited for my fans than I am for myself. This album will go #1…… because it’s CLASSIC !!! & in 11 days you all will get to hear why. I took the liberty in attaching the track listing as I know you guys have been wondering who’s on it…. 24 tracks because @kobebryant is my all time favorite player & has been a friend & inspiration to my career, so I saw it just to pay homage to the 🐐 #24 #Born2Rap #Prolific #eOne [DISCLAIMER: None of the women pictured above are in any way shape or form taking part in the consumption of alcohol or marijuana (THAT’S ALL ME BABY 😉) & certain things on the certificate of birth have been altered to my liking so you stalkers & creeps ain’t on no weirdo shit] #ThisIsMyArt @eone @markjamesscott gfx 💯
“I’m a goat, ni**a / I held Kim Kardashian by her throat, ni**a / I made her swallow my kids until she choked, ni**a,” raps Game before offering an apology to her husband: “I should apologize, ’cause Ye my folks, ni**a.”
The controversial song likely won’t sit well with Kanye, who has previously called out Drake and Nick Cannon for mentioning his wife. Game and Kanye are no strangers to collaborations, having worked together on tracks like “Crack Music” and “Dreams” off Game’s 2005 debut The Documentary.
Game has previously insinuated that he and Kim had a relationship, and he once boasted about sleeping with three of the Kardashians on his 2016 song “Sauce.”
Elsewhere on the album, Game addresses R. Kelly in the wake of Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly” docuseries. “It’s a lot of real superstars with these R. Kelly tendencies / A lot of shit that fans will never understand / A lot of people that change their story on the stand for 100 grand,” he raps.
He continues, “It ain’t OK to rape her just ’cause she came to see you at Summer Jam / Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby with his wine thing / And back to that bump and grind scene / I feel your pain / I got a daughter / It’d be slaughter, I can’t sit back like I’m Azrael’s father.”
Additionally, Game samples Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money” on “Gold Daytonas,” while other tracks include “$500 Candles” and “Gucci Flip Flops.” He has recorded over 90 songs and is eyeing a summer release for the project, which may be his last.
The cover art features nine pregnant women in the studio with Game while he records. “The concept behind this photo goes way beyond what you see upon 1st glance & I absolutely cannot wait for all of you to hear the music that goes along with the album,” said Game, who thanked the women on Instagram.
One of the clear standouts was a collaboration with 21 Savage, which can be heard here.
