The Game is preparing to release his latest album Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf and for this cut he recruits a wide swath of rappers. The choral chanting gives the song an ominous feel, but Yo Gotti, T.I. and 2 Chainz don't cower to the production: My auntie did twenty years, my pops did like sixteen, my partner did a decade, so what the fuck you really mean? 2 Chainz snarls fearless. The most surprising guest is Soulja Boy, whose hook lands strong as ever since Nicki and Drake got his buzz buzzing this year. The Game damn-near delivers his own "Control" verse (on Kendrick day no less), naming several names including his former Shady label-mates as his voice rips apart the pop filter throughout.
