Great documentary, really shows his progression as an artist (fueled by personal issues)

I haven't listened to the R.E.D. Album yet, is it as good as The Documentary?

From what I heard of the R.E.D album i didn't like, too much name dropping, too many songs sound the same, nothing too memorable on it to me.
Documentary is his best album by a mile imo.

No. There are 3/4 good songs on it. That's it.

A good album but nowhere near as commercial and accessible and as banging as the Documentary.

Half of the songs are very good though, so worth buying it definitely.

It's not worth buying mate, get the 2 or 3 good songs on iTunes or whatever and save yourself the money.

The city, Martians v goblins and Ricky IMO are the only decent songs, the rest is terrible, his worst album by far.

For 9.99 I would always buy the album but that is just me.

There are 10 songs worth buying imo - The city, Martians v goblins, Ricky, drug test, red nation, good girls, (the good, the bad and the ugly), speakers on blast, pot of gold and born in a trap

Paying for even 8 of them costs more than the 9.99 for the album.

Can't agree with that. Game was good enough on it. The beat was brutal though. Weezy ruined yet another song.

Chamillionaire's version is way better. The beat is sped up and sounds proper. Game would have been better on that, and doing the hook himself. Then it'd have been a good song.

Well the song in general is good, bad ft or not imo. Sample is excellent imo.

What is the Cham version? Link?

Well I know it as the Chamillionaire version but it was actually a beat that he jacked by Three 6 Mafia.

You have Pimp C doing the hook here. He brings way more to it than Weezy does.

Pimp C, it is hardly fair comparing anything to Pimp C now is it?
It is like comparing Nate Dogg to pretty much anyone else.

Nah not really. I was kinda half joking .

Game's version had the makings of a great song. His verses were nice. The beat let him down imo. It was far too slow. And having Weezy doing the hook was probably a great commercial move, but a terrible quality move.

IMO if you're really going to get someone like Wayne in then at least get a verse from him. Leave the hooks to someone who can actually do them. Wayne sounds like a constipated goat when he tries to sing. It's not pretty at all.
