In 2001, when The Game was shot and critically wounded during a failed drug deal, he laid lifeless in a hospital bed for several days. After awaking from a coma, he decided to put his past behind him and pursue a rap career. Seven years later, the Compton born rapper is about to embark on the release of his third studio album. Set for release this June, L.A.X. (Los Angeles Times) will include Big Dreams, a Cool & Dre produced street single which was recorded immediately following The Game’s recent release from prison. Though the rapper has stated in various interviews that L.A.X. will be his last album, an increasingly sublime delivery and amplified lyrical flair will make it difficult to simply walk away.
