Could The Game (Jayceon Taylor to his mama) do it on his own? Probably not. While he's a pretty good rapper for someone who's only been at it for, like, a year or two, he's never better than pretty good on The Documentary. The beats are almost uniformly great, but The Game can't hang with the marquee lineup the way Snoop Dogg did when Dre brought him off the bench for The Chronic. Trying to find his own voice, he shoots for a combination of 50 Cent's sing-song style and Eminem's anything-goes subject matter. Unfortunately, he ends up with rhymes like this one, from "Higher": "I'd do anything, but I wouldn't fuck Mariah/Even if she had Ashanti butt-naked in bed/'Cause she's got a forehead just like Tyra/I can say what the fuck I want." Guess that's true, but that doesn't mean anyone has to listen. Check back in a few records, when The Game has the skills to stand on his own.
