DJ Haze has been behind a lot of bangin’ mixtapes over the past few years, highlighted by projects with Fat Joe, Nu Jerzey Devil, and, most notably, The Game. For the recently-released Black Wall Street Radio (Part 5) the dynamic duo has linked up once again. On Baggage Claim, production trio Cookin’ Soul whips up a perfect recipe of heavy bass riffs and signature Cali piano stabs over which Hurricane Game slides in a Jay-Z subliminal, shouts out Beyonce, and gets his Phil Jackson on for the Lakers. Of late, Game has hinted that he belongs on that ‘best lyricists list’, but the mixed reviews of his L.A.X. release haven’t solidified his spot. Regardless, with so much venom being spit from his corner, it’s safe to say that a retirement party won’t be needed any time soon.
