Westside Connection Rebanding: Mack 10 Out, Whos in??

Just spotted this on HipHopdx.com, seems as The Game is joining Westide Connection as they are rebanding. Exciting stuff me thinks. Personally i think Ice-Cube lyrically is one of the best MCs ever. Combine with Games raw sound and his knowledge for a good beat, could be real good. Don't forget WC

At the minute game has one of the best ears for a beat out there, no doubt. Hopefully this will take the retirement thoughts from Game. Get Ice Cube on some 50 dissing with him, maybe we can see some cude vs Dre dissing, some more post nwa drama

I'm on the fence about this one, I think that Westside Connection stopped recording at the right time. When they got together Cube, Mack 10 and WC had alot of solo momentum and was kind of a supergroup when they formed. It was also a good period for music coming from the west coast and they knocked out some absolute bangers.

But I think they have all lost that momentum at the moment, even The Game would not have as much clout as a few years ago when there was massive hype about him.

But hopefully they click and re-ignite what I think is a lull/coasting point in thier careers....is lull the right word, not meant in a negative way, just saying they are established and are not breaking any major new ground individually.

maybe his first album, theres a handful of quality beats but thats bout it. the 2nd album had very average beats and lyric's. then theres all the unreleased stuff that surfaced earlier this year and if u ask me they shud of stayed unreleased. the game in a very average rapper, his first album was pretty impressive but the follow up was as boring as fffk, he's basically a west coast version of Memphis Bleek and by that i mean all he seems to talk bout is the person who helped put him on, drugs, money and bitches. The Westside Connection had their time, they shud of left it that way.

This topic never was about The game being a great rapper/or bad, so try and stick to what were talking about. What i said was he has a great ear for a great beat.
I appricaite your opinion that you think different but theres no need for the other off topic information tbh.

On the point of ice cube, wc and game, all have great sounding voices too with each having a distinctive sound. Im quite excited to see how this works out.

i seriously hope you are joking about cube dissing 50 and dre. why would he diss dre? they are on good terms. as for dissing 50, that is game's thing which started in 2005 and will hopefully end asap. why drag all that tired beef into westside connection?

Dre and cube havent been on good terms the last few years apparently. Since The last time they toured together. Thats why they never did the proper nwa reunion. Cube has publicly dissed 50 cent. So its hardly dragging beef in if its already there. I can imgaine this album being pretty bad if it happens. Cube is a bit hit and miss these days. Still capable of a few great tunes but a lot of crap. Game is the most overated mc in the world. And wc is your average workaday hypeman always in the background but never his own star type rapper, ala sheek locuh, memph bleek etc

eh....... this discussion is bout the westside connection reforming and the game becoming a new member right? so therefor discussing the Games skills is on topic. btw Bertie Ahern had a fairly distinctive voice u think he shud start rapping? Cube was and is the only outstanding member of W.C. everybody else is just there to make up the numbers if u ask me, and the Game isn't good enough to hold Cubes mic. IMHO the only reason he's in the group is because he's the only guy on the west coast who (besides snoop) is selling any kind of major numbers!!!!!!!!

Wow some serious bashing going on in the hip hop forums of late. clever man bertie ahern ha ha no no. don't talk sh*t please. game has a very original rapping sound to his voice its raspy and aggresive. open your ears lad and stop joining sides like an american hip-hop fan.
