10 years ago, an album named “The Documentary” changed the face of the entire West Coast Hip-Hop/Rap music scene. The man behind the album, Jayceon Terrell Taylor, better known as THE GAME soon grew to become one of the best rappers in the business. We are delighted to announce THE GAME will tour Australia in February 2016 for a string of headline shows around the country.
Known for being a part of 50 Cents G-Unit and as the protégé of Dr. Dre, THE GAME worked his way to become one of the most prolific rappers in the hip-hop scene. With 5 albums out, he has landed #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts 3 times, with the other two coming in at #2 and #5 – an incredible achievement. He is now back with his 6th album “The Documentary 2” – determined to further build on his amazing career. The album, which is a sequel to his critically acclaimed debut, features appearances from Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Diddy, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Drake and more!
“The Game has single-handedly revived the West Coast hip hop scene, and continues to be one of hip hop’s true superstars” (All Aussie Hip Hop)
Known for his highly energetic, anthemic and engaging live performance, THE GAME’s tunes are incredibly catchy and will have you rapping and screaming along in no time. It’s about the crowd as much as it is about him, and a bunch of the crowd is often invited up on stage to join in the madness. It is no coincidence that THE GAME’s arrival on the West Coast rap scene, and consequently around the world, marked the beginning of a new era in rap music – he has thoroughly earned this reputation.
“The Game gave a great performance, and played songs from each album. He kept the crowd and engaged and even brought fans on stage at the end”
Don’t miss the return of this Compton Kingpin, who boasts multi-platinum albums, selling over 10 million albums, and having several chart topping singles. THE GAME is sure to perform fan favourites – Westside Story, It’s Okay, Scared Now, Put You on the Game and more as well as highlights from “The Documentary 2”. THE GAME never accepted nor received any handouts. Nothing was given. He worked his way up and earned his place amongst the Rap Elite and Urban Music Folklore!
“He had the whole place buzzing within seconds! His stage presence was amazing and he knew how to rock the crowd with back-to-back hits… He gave everyone what they came to see – a real hip-hop show!”
‘”The GAME KILLED IT. He had the crowd going nuts”
“No one better live in hiphop/rap scene. He connected with the audience at every chance all through the night”
