Audio: Common, “The Game” (Official)

May 11, 2007


Love that photo. Here's the official, no radio DJ version of "The Game" with production by Kanye and scratches by Premo off Finding Forever. And here's what we had to say about it in our album preview:

The use of Ahmad Jamal's "Swahililand" (as heard on De La Soul's "Stakes Is High") is an obvious nod to Dilla by West, but "The Game" also incorporates ’90s boom-bap hip-hop. The duo even brought in DJ Premier to scratch a chorus out of lines from OC's "Half Good, Half Sinner" : It's only right that I address this/ You gotta be in it to win it.
