While gearing up to release his forthcoming album 1992, The Game takes a break from thrashing Meek Mill to show fans his more sensitive side on his new slow jam, “Baby You,” featuring Jason Durelo. This joint is a smooth and soulful record that carriea an early 90s vibe, while touching on jilted relationships.
The Compton native gives us an old school soul tinged track that has him going deep into his feelings as he reflects on a relationship gon awry, leaving him feeling that his lover doesn’t appreciate the hard work he does to provide a better life for him and his children, but he still is crazy about her. He raps some well written and emotional lyrics like
“Tell me how you think we living how we live?/Like you the one that put us in these cribs/Not me but baby you/Like I ain’t getting money for these shows/I guess you think I’m tripping on these h*es.” And the pop star Jason Durelo, making another rare appearance in the Hip-Hop world, masterfully flexes his underrated R&B chops on the record giving it that early 90s feel. A common theme across the album he alluded to in many of his recent interviews.
