The Artist: Game
The Mixtape: 2010's Brake Lights
Why It Didn't Live Up To The Hype: Game's next project, The R.E.D. Album, has seen its' fair share of starts and stops over the course of the last few years. So, if nothing else, Brake Lights was appropriately-titled. However, that's about all it had going for it. It had too many tracks, too many random features, and too many songs that sounded like throwaway cuts from his pending album. Fortunately, he returned in 2011 with another mixtape called Purp & Patron to redeem himself, but Brake Lights served as little more than a bump in the road when he dropped it.
