No reason was given for the new date.
PREVIOUS: Game’s long-awaited new album hasn’t been without its share of delays. The original plan was to drop The Documentary 2 in January, to commemorate 10 years since its predecessor, The Documentary, hit stores.
Now, close to nine months later, Game is ready to deliver. The Compton rap star unveiled the official cover art, and updated release date via Instagram today.
The image, featuring Game up against a chain link fence, was shot by Jonathan Mannion, who photographed The Documentary cover. “Everything about the photo shoot made me feel the exact same way I did when we were there 10 years ago & trust me when I say.... This album is better than my 1st for more than a few reasons," Game wrote on Instagram. "But you don't have to take my word for it because you will see for yourself when it drops SEPTEMBER 25TH 2015 !!!!”
Dropping the album next month was inspired by K. Dot’s To Pimp a Butterfly release and the success of Straight Outta Compton. “After Kendrick dropped his album, then Dr. Dre dropped #Compton then the movie doing 100 million after just 2 weeks..... This album will add to my cities continuous legacy !!!! I'm proud to be from #COMPTON & I wish #EazyE was alive to see us flourish yet again...... We on !!! This album cover represents the struggle to stay alive in a city where CRIPS & BLOODS have been at war since 1972 & it's because of you ‘THE FANS’ I will again get to give you my documented accounts of life here in Los Angeles .... SEPTEMBER 25TH history will be made again #TheDocumentary2.”
