Compton rapper The Game has released a brand-new song, “Stainless,” featuring Anderson .Paak.
The woozy, soul-tinged jam produced by Big Duke is an ode to California’s rap figureheads. It kicks opens with .Paak, who delivers a smooth verse while riding the cruisy production effortlessly. The Game enters right after to name-drop his fellow West Coast emcees, from Dr Dre to Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight to Nipsey Hussle. “Baby Lane killed Pac, n***as killed Baby Lane / Buntry was bustin’ back, Heron died in his chain / A fatal car crash killed Fatal Hussein / RIP Kadafi, ridin’ down memory lane,” he spits.
According to The Game, an accompanying music video will be released soon. In an Instagram clip teasing the “Stainless” visual, The Game and .Paak race each other in their luxury whips as helicopters chase after them.
“Stainless” is expected to appear on The Game’s new album, Born 2 Rap, out November 29. It will include the previously released single “West Side” and a collaboration with 21 Savage, “By the Code.”
