The Game & Drake Keep It 100 in Compton (Video)
With the Game’s much anticipated The Documentary 2 scheduled to drop August 28, the Compton MC has put out two singles thus far, beginning with April’s “Ryda” featuring Dej Loaf. The second single, “100,” features Drake and the two put in some serious lyrical work on the track. In addition to the music, the Game has released an extensive album trailer, a nearly eight-minute teaser stylized as a preview for a blockbuster film. Excitement for the album is particularly feverish because it serves as the follow-up to his breakthrough debut, 2005’s The Documentary, which led to his being mentioned as the King of the West at the time.
Now he has released the Theo Skudra-directed visuals for “100,” in which he and Drake keep it real, L.A. style. The two MCs spend a day in Compton, where the neighborhood comes out in swarms to support. Dressed down in ultra-casual threads, sippin’ out of red plastic cups, throwing dice, and not venturing too far from the apartment complex, the two are clearly not concerned with the highfalutin. Shots of the carwash, Rosecrans Avenue, and the souped-up hydraulics on the lowrider make it a distinctively West Coast affair. Check it out.
