The Game will be performing at 4th & B this coming Thursday night. This San Diego stop will kick off the Game's R.E.D. Tour in promotion of his recently released The R.E.D. Album, which was released at the end of August and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts, making it Game's third No. 1 debut.
Much like his other releases, the Game's The R.E.D. Album features excellent beats from a number of producers and high-profile guest rappers, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Tyler the Creator, E-40 and many others. The Game is all about that tried-and-true gangsta rap of the '90s West Coast/Dr. Dre variety.
If his latest album is any indication, the Game's live performance should be very fiery. R.E.D. is lauded by many for the passion that the Game injects into it. Each lyric is screamed with high intensity, as if he's trying to resurrect the entire West Coast hip-hop scene with each word. His presence in his live shows should be the same. With any luck, he'll also use this opening leg of The R.E.D. Tour to officially declare war on ... whoever he happens to be beefing with at the time. The Game doesn't stray far from controversy, and neither do rap fans. Hopefully, we can experience something truly epic.
Also performing on Thursday are E-Man, Lil Joe aka the Clinic, Jewelz P and Random Citizens. You can buy tickets at 4th & B's website. Details below:
