The Game to Star in A&E Documentary ‘Streets of Compton’
On the heels of his Documentary 2 and 2.5 albums from last year, Game will appear in the three-part series Streets of Compton, which will focus on the history of the city. The new series also comes with an 11-track soundtrack of the same name courtesy of Game, set to drop June 17.
The new music further pays homage to the city Game, Kendrick Lamar and other MC's call home. Game keeps it close, recruiting fellow Compton artists Problem, Boogie, J3, Payso, Micah, AD, Av and more for the album. He's already dropped the first single “Roped Off” featuring Problem and Boogie over a West Coast G-Funk production by League of Starz.
Outside of his new A&E collaboration Game is also working on his next solo effort. In April he announced that he was working on his next project 1992. He posted an image of the cover, featuring a baby-faced Game inked with his infamous L.A. facial tat.
Streets of Compton is produced by Creature Films and eOne for A&E Network. The Game, Cash “Wack 100” Jones and Alan Grunblatt also serve as executive producers. The first two parts of the series premiere on Thursday, June 9 at 9 P.M. E.S.T. and the third and final hour airs Thursday, June 16 at 10 P.N. E.S.T. on A&E.
