The black-and-white cover was shot by the famed Jonathan Mannion, who photographed his first album cover. It shows Game in front of a chainlink fence on the bridge of Cedar Block Piru in Compton, where he grew up.
“Everything about the photo shoot made me feel the exact same way I did when we were there 10 years ago,” said Game.
He has been in the studio with heavy-hitters including Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Timbaland, Sevyn Streeter, and Keyshia Cole.
“This album is better than my 1st for more than a few reasons,” said Game. “After Kendrick dropped his album, then Dr. Dre dropped #Compton then the movie doing 100 million after just 2 weeks….. This album will add to my cities continuous legacy !!!! I’m proud to be from #COMPTON & I wish #EazyE was alive to see us flourish yet again…… We on !!!”
