As he prepares for his fifth studio album Game is still hard at work promoting The R.E.D. Album which features the singles “Red Nation,” “Pot of Gold,” and “Martians vs. Goblins." On Thursday (March 22) Game dropped a new video for “The City,” featuring Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar. The video, directed by Matt Alanzo, gives us a look inside the L.A. gang scene, while Game and Kendrick rap on top of buildings and around Los Angeles.
In the video Game defends hip-hop coming from the West, emphasizing that West Coast rap isn't dead as long as his heart is beating. On the track Game also puts himself on the top of the best rapper list, saying “Name your top 10, I’m harder than the most of them. Matter of fact shorten your list ni---- top 5, Game, Biggie, Hov, probably Pac, Nas.”
Kendrick Lamar handles the hook on “The City,” and delivers the last verse without a beat.
The video release comes just as VH1 is set to premiere Game’s Behind The Music episode. You can catch a sneak peek of Game’s Behind The Music episode here.
Game’s last music video release came in December, when he teamed up with Tyler, The Creator of Odd Future for ”Martians vs. Goblins”, the third single off The R.E.D. Album.
The R.E.D. Album was released on August 23.
