The album's first disc, Documentary 2, was released on Oct. 9 and featured a stacked list of guest artists as well, like rappers Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and Future. The double-disc album is a sequel to The Game's 2005 debut, The Documentary. The two discs reportedly represent the Los Angeles gangs the Bloods and the Crips.
The rapper told MTV on Oct. 9 that he's been working on the album for three years because Dr. Dre wasn't pleased with the first few drafts. "I went through a few different drafts of what it was," he told MTV. "Once I played the first for Dre, he was just like, thumbs down. Not because the music wasn't up to par — it just wasn't Documentary-level."
