All good things come in twos. With sharp lyrics comes a banging beat. With good weed comes hard liquor. And with Game comes DJ Skee. Over the years, they’ve collaborated to release some of the best mixtapes ever, including the infamous You Know What It Is Volume 3. For their next act, the two have linked together again for the 2-disc mixtape Purp and Patron, in the latest step along the path of Game’s attempted career revival.
The first half is dedicated to “Purp,” while the closer is “Patron.” With features from the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Lil’ Wayne and Fabolous, expect Chuck Taylor to bring out many different flows and use just enough lyrical prowess to hold his own in the ring. He’s made a steady improvement since his two mixtapes last year and if this one follows a similar pattern, who knows what the future holds. If you can hold your breath long enough, The R.E.D. Album just might come out before you go blue in the face.
Here’s the entire tape in one setting.
