Ten years since his debut The Documentary, The Game is going back to where it all started.

On Sept. 25, the Compton kingpin will release the highly-anticipated sequel, The Documentary 2. The black-and-white cover was shot by the famed Jonathan Mannion, who photographed his first album cover. It shows Game in front of a chainlink fence on the bridge of Cedar Block Piru in Compton, where he grew up.

“Everything about the photo shoot made me feel the exact same way I did when we were there 10 years ago,” said Game.

He has been in the studio with heavy-hitters including Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Timbaland, Sevyn Streeter, and Keyshia Cole.

He wrote on instagram:

“To my true fans: it’s been really dope to have you ridin’ with me the last 10 years from the 1st Documentary til now…. I appreciate your loyalty & the patience you have displayed while waiting for me to finish #TheDocumentary2 & I am proud to give you my album cover shot by legend photographer & director @JonathanMannion (who also shot my 1st album cover) & graphic designer @CeoSelfmade for collaborating with Jonathan to bring such a classic image of me on the bridge in my hood….Cedar Block Piru in westside Compton, California… Everything about the photo shoot made me feel the exact same way I did when we were there 10 years ago & trust me when I say…. This album is better than my 1st for more than a few reasons…. But you don’t have to take my word for it because you will see for yourself when it drops SEPTEMBER 25TH 2015 !!!! After Kendrick dropped his album, then Dr. Dre dropped #Compton then the movie doing 100 million after just 2 weeks….. This album will add to my cities continuous legacy !!!! I’m proud to be from #COMPTON & I wish #EazyEwas alive to see us flourish yet again…… We on !!!
