DOCTORS ADVOCATE ALBUM INFO:
The Game Doctor's Advocate is the second solo studio album by The Game, and was released on November 14, 2006 in the US. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 358,988 copies, making this The Game's second number one album. The album's title "Doctor's Advocate" is in reference to pioneering rap producer and artist, Dr. Dre, who essentially found, and then signed The Game to his Aftermath record label. The album has many of the same producers that his first album, The Documentary had, including the likes of Kanye West and Just Blaze. In contrast to his debut, this album features no production from the Aftermath Entertainment CEO and famed hip-hop producer Dr. Dre, although long-time Dr. Dre collaborator Scott Storch produced two songs on the album.
The Game wanted to prove that he could still make good music as he did on his first album, The Documentary, without help of Dr. Dre or 50 Cent. The album has received many positive reviews from critics, including a 4.5 mic rating from leading hip hop magazine The Source, and All Music Guide wrote that while the album "is nothing new" from The Documentary, "the fact remains that every track here is as good as or better than those on his debut." Although 50 Cent is not featured, there are many new and re-occurring guest appearances on this album. Notable artists are Busta Rhymes, Nas, Nate Dogg, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, will.i.am, and Xzibit.
"It's Okay (One Blood)" is the first single from Doctor's Advocate released on July 24, 2006. The song was originally set to be released on July 4th, but was pushed back by The Game. Jimmy Rosemond, head of Czar Entertainment and The Game's manager, explained how "One Blood" would receive positive radio airplay and prove how talented The Game is. When news of The Game's first single was announced by Rosemond, it was revealed simply as "One Blood" and is the name it commonly goes by. The song samples Junior Reid's "One Blood" and features Junior Reid himself. Several lines in the song stirred controversy in Hip Hop, especially as to who the line: "You 38 and you still rappin, ugh.", was aimed at, as many believed this to be aimed at Dr Dre. The Game made a music video for the song, which debuted on BET on August 22, 2006. The Game is walking alone through the streets for most of the video to symbolize that he is the 'One Blood'. There are appearances in the video by Juice, Ya Boy, Nu Jerzey Devil, DJ Skee and Tyrese. One Blood is also included in the video game Def Jam: Icon which was a hit for the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.
A ground breaking official remix of "It's Okay (One Blood)" was released on November 7, 2006, featuring an impressive 24 other hip-hop artists alongside The Game himself, somehwat proving to Dr Dre that The Game has the support to do things away from Aftermath and 50 Cent. The featuring rappers rap in this order on the song: Jim Jones, Snoop Dogg, Nas, T.I., The Game (rapping a new verse), Fat Joe, Lil Wayne, N.O.R.E., Jadakiss, Styles P., Fabolous, Juelz Santana, Rick Ross, Twista, Tha Dogg Pound, WC, E-40, Bun B, Chamillionaire, Slim Thug, Young Dro, Clipse, Ja Rule.
The Game followed up the success of the remix with an additional 4 regional remixes. They are: "One Blood Dirty South Remix" featuring artists from the south, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Twista, T.I., Chamillionaire, Pitbull, Slim Thug, Young Jeezy, Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Young Dro & Bun B. Game's "One Blood Midwest Remix" featured Kanye West, Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, Common, Obie Trice & hip hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. "One Blood Eastside Remix" was aimed primarily at fans of Eastcoast rap featuring rappers Jim Jones, Fabolous, Clipse, Juelz Santana (extended verse), Diddy, Cam'ron, Cassidy, Busta Rhymes, Nas, Jadakiss, Styles P., Fat Joe, Papoose, Sheek Louch, N.O.R.E. & Ja Rule. The Game then dropped "One Blood Westside Remix" featuring legendary westcoast MC's Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, Crooked I, WC, E-40, Glasses Malone, Ice Cube, Bishop Lamont & The Game hismelf rapping a new verse from the official single version.
"Let's Ride (Strip Club)" is the second single from Doctor's Advocate. The song was written by The Game and Scott Storch and was released on September 25, 2006. The song peaked at number 46 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The music video for the track premiered on BET's 106 & Park on October 23, 2006. On November 14, 2006, the video debuted on MTV's TRL (Total Request Live) at number ten and stayed on the chart for over 2 weeks. In The video The Game can be seen riding in a 1964 Chevrolet Impala with hydraulics and the video contains a cameo appearance by fellow West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg. The video was also the subject of an MTV Making the Video episode as was a previous single of The Game's, "Dreams", from his The Documentary album.
"Wouldn't Get Far" is the third single from Doctor's Advocate. The song is produced by and features a verse from Kanye West. It contains a sample from Creative Source's "I'd Find You Anywhere", and a small sample from 2Pac's "All Bout U", and also a sample of Jadakiss' "By Your Side". In the song, The Game mentions and criticizes, by both name and alias, many up-and coming and established video vixens, models, and actresses. The women addressed include Nicole Alexander, Karrine Steffans, Vida Guerra, Gloria Velez, Halle Berry, Meagan Good, Lil' Kim, Kelis, Charli Baltimore, Toccara Jones, and Melyssa Ford. As a response, Vida Guerra made a 30 second rap diss to the The Game in retaliation to his negative remarks about how video models succeed in the hip hop business. She insinuates that The Game is desperate to sleep with her, and earlier, she had claimed that The Game was mad at her for turning him down. After the final verse of the song, The Game can be heard talking in a similar style as Snoop Dogg did in 2Pac's song "All Bout U" from his 1996 album All Eyez on Me. This portion of the song is not available on the radio edited version, and was also not premiered in the video. Prior to filming the music video, The Game said that he was hoping some of the video vixens he mentions in the song would come down for the shoot to lighten some of the tension that had built because of the track lyrics. In the end, only Gloria Velez turned up and is seen in the video; the others are played by look-alikes. "Why You Hate The Game" was planned as the fourth single from Doctor's Advocate. The Game revealed that the song would be a single on April 9, 2007, but it was not released.
