“Violence” is the first preview of The Game’s long-awaited 10th album “Drillmatic,” which will now be released on July 8 via Prolific/eOne, after being pushed back a couple of times from its original release date of June 17.
The track was first teased by Hit-Boy last month during an appearance on Sway Calloway’s “Sway In The Morning” radio show. “I gotta hear that Game shit,” Sway told Hit-Boy, after which the producer pushed play on the track which features his uncle Ian on the intro.
“Heard y’all want REAL RAP again,” Game wrote of the track on Instagram. “We got you. Game x Hit-Boy woke up & chose ‘VIOLENCE’ today !!!!!!”
Game called his upcoming project the “Album Of The Year” on numerous occasions and has continued to preach that the 30-track LP will certify him as the G.O.A.T.
“I know my album gone be the best album of 2022, ’cause the energy feels like I just signed my deal,” he wrote on Instagram back in May. “You’ve never heard me rap like this, I promise you.”
“When it drops, I promise you that if you put your ear to it you will then understand why I’m the best rapper alive,” he continued. “My controversy has always stepped on my greatness, but that’s all about to change. This album has a strong hold on being the best album of my career.
“It’s just different… the last time I pulled over & wrote in my car was ‘I don’t need your love’ on The Documentary. Only thing is, back then it was a U-Haul. Today I pulled over the G-Wagon on Labrea because I couldn’t believe how dope the shit in my head was.”
“Drillmatic” follows 2019’s “Born 2 Rap,” which The Game claimed would be his final album.
