The Game pushes back release of ‘Drillmatic,’ drops ‘Violence’ with Hit-Boy

After making an unexpected return to the spotlight following a collaboration with Ye, Los Angeles native The Game is streaking towards his forthcoming “album of the year” Drillmatic – Mind Vs. Heart.

Despite its original June 24 release date, the LA rap icon off-handedly announced a week-long delay amid his exclusion from Rolling Stone’s “Top 200 Greatest Rap Albums Of All Time” list. While Drillmatic is set to hold executive production from the inimitable Hit-Boy — the sonic architect behind a Nas’ Grammy-winning King’s Disease series, Benny The Butcher’s Burden Of Proof and so much more — The Game’s new album is now prepped for release on July 1.

As we patiently wait for Drillmatic, The Game decided to bless fans with a new single off the project titled “Violence” (June 21) — a soulful track that addresses everything from his problems with Dr. Dre to his drug dealing days. Hit-Boy’s production brings a refined cinematic aspect to “Violence” — boasting singing strings and epic drums that add to the dramatic quality of The Game’s lyrics.

This is not the end for me

I’m living through my infamy

Every gun shot is a bitter sweet symphony

That’s why Hit Boy brought in the symphony

The Game — “Violence”

As the hype for Drillmatic builds, The Documentary emcee has been drumming up competition with Eminem, saying on multiple interviews with Drink Champs and HipHopDX that he would win against him in a Verzuz challenge, amid other unconfirmed claims.

Along with his Kanye-assisted single “Eazy” in February — an introspective track that goes into the nitty gritty of both rappers’ personal struggles — Drillmatic is poised to be the album that sets The Game apart from his peers once more.
