The Game

50 Cent and the Game have made up for now. But their recent feud has kicked up a lot of dirt, emphasizing that Game's platinum debut The Documentary was a product of a hit machine manned by 50 and Dr. Dre; 50 co-wrote and guests on the three most popular songs ("Westside Story," "Hate It or Love It," and "How We Do"). West Coast Resurrection, a clutch of songs recorded in San Francisco before Game met Dre, provides a greater, if messier, indication of a young talent before it was shaped into an American idol.
