Let’s get this out of the way right now: I think Game’s The Documentary is vastly overrated. Sure, it’s a pretty good album but there are probably about 50 different MCs could have made the same quality album. The album had literally every great producer around that time: Just Blaze, Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Kanye West and more. Add in hooks by the best hook man of that year, 50 Cent, and all Game had to do was rap decently and he had at the very least a pretty great album.
To me, The Documentary was the early-00s Patriots. Plug in Matt Cassel to that system and you’re still going to win 10 games. The album really sounds like this in my head: dope beats + name dropping + blah blah blah + great hooks.
So there, that’s my take on the most overrated album I can think of. And I’m sure I’ll get a good deal of disagreement and slander but guess what…
Now, it’s your turn. What’s the most overrated rap album in your opinion?
