The Game tours Australia for the final time this year

The US rapper has previously announced that new album, Westside Story, will be his last.

The Game will tour Australia this September in support of his new album, Westside Story; a record he says will be his last.

The US rapper has told fans that he’ll retire after the release, and subsequent tour, of the new record, making his upcoming Australian shows the last chance fans can catch him down under.

Westside Story features beats by Dr Dre and a collaboration with Kendrick Lamar. So it’s safe to say the LA-born artist is ending his 15-year career in style.

In 2005, Jayceon Terrell Taylor, better known as The Game, released one of the seminal albums in rap music – The Documentary. Billboard declared it ‘one of the best rap albums of the year’ and Entertainment Weekly suggested ‘with the brightest hip-hop stars aligning for him, The Game may have willed himself a popular masterpiece.’ West Coast rap legend Dr. Dre was the Executive Producer and sold more than 5 million copies.

His chart success continued with 2008’s LAX, which reached No. 2 on the chart, and 2011’s The R.E.D. Album, which returned him to the top of The Billboard 200.

We’ll have tickets for The Game’s Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney shows in September.
