The Game just dropped a colossal double mixtape called Purp & Patron. The 29-track collection, hosted by DJ Skee and Funkmaster Flex, boasts a bountiful of collaborations with Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Lil Boosie, Rick Ross and more. Also included is a special remix to Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" with Snoop Dogg called "Purp & Yellow" in honor of the Los Angeles Lakers.
There's a lot of filler on the mixtape, but there are a few standout joints. The Nottz-produced "R.I.P. Story" features gangster posturing from Game over a violin-laden sample. T-Pain is known for his Auto-Tune, but he is also a formidable producer, as well. On "Khaki Suit," T-Peezy's eerie and thunderous productions is perfect for rolling around in your whip (car). Finally, Dr. Dre blessed the melodic "Soft Rhodes," which features Ashanti. Game does his best impression of Notorious B.I.G. on the track and he sounds just as charismatic as the late New York rapper.
Purp & Patron is a good teaser for Game's oft-delayed LP R.E.D. Album.
