"L3 Magazine: Game Brothas Album Review"

Game Brothas represents the West with their debut album, 'How The West Was Won.' Using 18 tracks to make their point, the duo stays true to the regions distinct sound with tracks like "Sleep With A Rapper," "Stubby In My Lean" and Bell Rung." Before we get to the hardcore tracks, GB's treat us to the neck snapping joint "Turn It Up" which is percussion, fused with marching band styled horns. We can definitely see this banger on repeat for Friday Night Lights!
Moving deeper in the album, "To Tha Beat" gives a great breakdown as to who the Game Brothas are lyrically which will remind you of NWA when they first began. Lyrics that will definitely catch your attention is 'everybody's rapping like it's a commercial / acting like life is a big commercial / you can get shut down / that's irreversible / don't take it light bruh / take it personal....' "PGA" fuses a little Rock in the Game Brothas mix which is a solid switch up and works with the overall flow of the album.
Nature Boy (left in picture) and Mr. Wonderful (right in picture) continue the legacy set by the masters that walked before them. "We're influenced by lots of different types of music, so our sound is it's own thing. Our Music goes beyond the typical chatter of a lot of current mainstream Rap, with lyric driven story lines, and hooks you can't help but move too."
The GB's mantra is simple: "Ain't no brotha like a Game Brotha brotha 'cuz a Game Brotha brotha got game." - L3 Magazine

"Game Brothas, How the West Was Won"

Everything on this album has a double meaning. Or a triple meaning. Except the word "game," which could connote just about anything you want (money, swag, power, mojo, knowledge). Sometimes the meanings aren't obvious — the song "I Get It," for example, is about acquisition, not comprehension. "Sleep wit' a Rapper" is pretty literal, but it has this weird intro fairytale about a mouse and an elephant. Oh, I get it. (Game Brothas Entertainment) -

Game Brothas – How The West Was Won

Existují lehcí úkoly než jaký si dalo duo Game Brothas. To chce s jejich debutem How The West Was Won vrátit západní pobreží zpet na hip-hopovou mapu.

Dvojice Nature Boy a Mista Wonderful se o to pokouší pokracováním v tradici domovského oaklandského zvuku, který dríve formovali Too $hort, Mac Dre ci Spice One nebo v poslední dobe Keak da Sneak a Yukmouth. Jejich album tak nabízí klasické 808 bicí doplnené o 60 minut plných poulicního života, holek, prachu a parení v klubu.

Ackoli je v tomto ohledu deska konzistentní, nevyvaruje se šlápnutí vedle jako je do absurdna dotažené použití auto-tuneu v “I´m Gone“.

Game Brothas i pres jistou povrchnost celého How The West Was Won dokáží naznacit, že jim není cizí ani komplexnejší vyprávení príbehu než všudyprítomné “PGA“ (Pretty Girls & Alcohol). Príkladem je záverecné “The Lick“ popisující nevydarenou loupež. - Bbarak Hip-Hop Magazine
