In 2001, while The Game was in hospital recovering from a shooting, he decided to pursue a career in music. He released the mixtape, “Q.B. 2 Compton” under his then record label “Get Low Recordz” in 2002, which was later was discovered by Dr. Dre and led to him signing The Game to his label, Aftermath Entertainment. The album includes production from high-profile producers such as Dr. Dre, Kanye WestScott Storch and Timbaland, among others, and guest appearances from 50 CentEminemNate Dogg and Faith Evans, among others.
