The Game set to release new album

The Game is making some bold statements about himself and his new music.

The Compton, Calif. rapper is set to release his sophomore album, The Doctor’s Advocate, on Nov. 14. In a recent MTV article, he likens himself to a one-man version of the seminal West Coast hip-hop group N.W.A.

Dr. Dre, a former member of N.W.A., is the doctor referenced on The Game’s album title, yet he will have no contributions to the album. Dr. Dre produced several songs on The Game’s debut, The Documentary, which was co-released by 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records and Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Records. Since its release, The Game’s contract was shifted to Geffen Records (another subdivision of Interscope, like G-Unit and Aftermath) due to his feud with 50 Cent.

One must wonder, though, why would an album would reference another artist if that artist is nowhere to be found? When The Game found out Dr. Dre would not be contributing, he should have retitled his album. Instead, he is stuck with references to Dr. Dre on his lead single, “It’s Okay” (which can be heard on his MySpace page), that have little to do with the content of the album.

So far, it has been confirmed that The Doctor’s Advocate will feature production from of the Black Eyed Peas, Just Blaze, Scott Storch and Kanye West.
