The Game is closing out a major chapter of his life. Barring a change in the plans, the veteran MC intends for his newly released album Born 2 Rap to be the final LP of his career.
Game’s apparent swan song includes more than 20 songs and a stacked lineup of guests. The album features collaborations with Chris Brown, 21 Savage, Mozzy, Anderson .Paak, Bryson Tiller, Ed Sheeran, Travis Barker, the late Nipsey Hussle and more.

The Game is almost ready to drop Born 2 Rap, which he claims will be his last studio album. Ahead of the LP’s November 29 release date, the West Coast veteran unveiled the project’s official cover art and tracklist via Instagram.
“I promise another classic… my day 1 fans know what it is,” he wrote in the post’s caption. “I will not disappoint !!!!”
Game highlighted all of the pregnant women who participated in the album cover’s photoshoot and thanked the photographer for bringing his vision to life. He expressed his excitement for the LP before reflecting on the significance of his upcoming release.
“I’ve had a great run & surpassed my rap goals along time ago…. it’s by God’s grace that I’m able to still be here to deliver full projects at this caliber in an industry where I’ve seen artists come & go,” he noted. “It will always be ‘QUALITY’ over ‘QUANTITY’ from where I stand. The REAL music will always prevail & this album will cap off an amazing run. I’m grateful for all the producers & artists who’ve helped this album become what it is & I am more excited for my fans than I am for myself. This album will go #1…… because it’s CLASSIC !!!”
