Not trying to start anymore E-BEEF between all the G-unit groupies...

Seriously though why does NAME-DROPPING matter?

The phenomenon of 'name dropping' (i.e. including brand names within song lyrics) in hip-hop in resent times has seen a phenomenal increase.

Dude grew up on Dre and NWA you got to think that what GAME was around of course he gonna RAP about that...

That what the West Coast was about...2Pac, Dre, Nwa, Cube, Snoop, etc

Like it has been said before people just use 'NAME DROPPING' for a reason to HATE on GAME...Just b/c he brought down G-Unit [NYC version] down all by himself...of course the G-Unit groupies love to HATE...

Every rapper NAME DROPS, either PEOPLE or BRAND NAMES...
Chuck D famously said that rap is the black CNN, and James says that helps explain why rap contains so many brand references: “It talks about the here and now, rather than eternal themes of love and death.”

Does this phenomenon have an underlying consequence on this lyrically dominated art form?

Yea that n*gga does say Dre alot. It's gotten irritating now. Like n*gga STOP!!! I listen to game occasionally but i swear sometimes i feel like thats his cry to Dre everytime he does that. Like some 'n*gga I MISS YOU!!!' type sh*t

You missed two name in Angels. He said Barrington Levy right after saying Shyne's name. And he says Shock G on the last line of the song.

His first album he name dropped waaaaaay more then this, his second was a lot to, he cut down a lot. Also he said that name dropping was his style, and he also said that if ya don't like it, don't listen to his music because he doesn't care lol. Also I like when he name drops because he just doesn't drop rappers names, he drops names on everything, which paints a better picture in my mind which in turn makes the song better

lol what university u go to cuz?

but anyway thats that man style. just like em always raps about poppin e and k!llin kim and his moms. 50 always k!ll like 500 n*ggas on his albums, or diss 50 rappas. or wayne talk about baby or hoes or how he eats rappers. i can go on! but personally i think game is creative wit it, even tho i do get sicka him cryin to dre. but he take different names and relate em to the subject. and he make good music while he doin it so find somethin else to hate on him about.

State Of Emergency, hands down. Straight up sounds like some old school NWA and he also brings out the essence in Ice Cube.

I wonder if this name dropping thing is just a Game phenomena or not. Go listen to 50's album, and tell me how many times he references a gun, a car, or a drug. Listen to Wayne and tell me how many times that dude talks about being the greatest, sippin on syrup, purple and cars. Listen to Jay-Z and see how many times he mentions a brand name or how much his money's worth.

Game doesn't name drop for no reason anyway, he name drops because he has a point to make. And what's up with including Game's Pain in there? He's shouting out all the "legends" and pioneers of rap and made that song as a tribute to them.
