The Game has just let the world know he is "the best rapper alive" - and his upcoming album will prove it. The Compton native took to the 'gram to let his followers know that 2022 is his year, and no one is taking it away from him. Drillmatic will be The Game's tenth studio album, following Born 2 Rap, which dropped back in 2019. Here's what to know.

By this point, The Game has been in the biz for nearly two decades and has confidently shared that his time in the industry has only made him "the best rapper alive." The talented artist dropped his first independent album in 2004, Untold Story and was eventually signed by Aftermath Records by the one and only Dr. Dre. The Hate It Or Love It singer blew up in 2005 when The Documentary dropped and gained major success, and he continued to thrive in 2006 with Doctors Advocate.

So now that we've traced The Game's success all the way back to the early 2000s, we understand why he is so confident in debuting Drillmatic. The celebrated rapper is certain his newest album will reach new heights in his career and for rap music in general. The rapper took to his Instagram to announce to his followers that the long-awaited album, Drillmatic, is going to be the best album of 2022 "cause the energy feels like I just signed my deal." The artist then promised his followers, "You've never heard me rap like this."

The Game's lengthy Instagram post continued on as he highlighted some of the genre's most celebrated records of the year. The How We Do rapper shouted out, Pusha-T's It's Almost Dry, Kendrick Lamar's latest masterpiece, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, Vince Staples' Ramona Park Broke My Heart, and a few more projects he connected to, calling them "Real Rap," albums. However, The Game is convinced his album will still be number one, saying, "I can honestly say nothing rap related will be able to stand next to this in 2022. When it drops, I promise you that if you put your ear to it, you will then understand why I'm the best rapper alive." The Game closed off his caption, explaining, "This album has a stronghold on being the best album of my career," and confirming Drillmatic will be dropping in less than 30 days. Until then, stay tuned.
