The Game salutes 50 Cent and Dr. Dre for contributing on his debut album “The Documentary”

For the better part of last year, a prominent emcee from Westcoast, The Game went on multiple interviews and social media posts to say his former Aftermath colleagues 50 Cent and Dr. Dre didn’t help him much in his career and has seemed to change his tune now.

On the 18th anniversary of his debut album which is a cemented classic, The Documentary, Game shared a lengthy post where he thanked the people behind the making of his LP. The Game wrote crediting Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Dr. Dre “@snoopdogg passed me the torch, @bustarhymes kept me focused… @drdre laid the foundation & @50cent helped put the puzzle together.”

The Game’s above statement comes after the fact he said in his Drinks Champ appearance last year saying “Kanye has done more for my career than Dre ever did” he also went on to say in another interview that “Dr. Dre never produced a beat for me”.

The Game also discredited 50 Cent’s involvement in helping his career by saying “A lot of people are like Fifty put you on.’ No, Fifty did not put me on! People do not understand that, at that time in L.A., I was it. I was the n—. it didn’t matter if I signed with Diddy, or Irv, or whoever the f—. I was still gonna be Game!” said The Game during a chat with Fat Joe.


Regardless of The Game’s changing statements The Documentary which was released in 2005 remains a staple in Westcoast classics. It was executive produced by 50 Cent and Dr. Dre and also features Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Nate Dogg, and more.
