The Game shows lyrical improvement over his major label debut, and even though some accused him of being a "name dropper" back then and still will today, the references seem more in keeping with his "soldier of the West" philosophy and less like a filler for lack of content.
BillboardEven though "Doctor's Advocate" has its failings, it's a prescription that comes recommended. [18 Nov 2006]

MASTAMINDENov 17, 2006Whoa, The Game has really impressed me this time around. While I appreciated The Documentary primarily for its incredibly solid production Whoa, The Game has really impressed me this time around. While I appreciated The Documentary primarily for its incredibly solid production and generally good guest verses The Game himself had rather weak flow. He had virtually the same pace on each song. On the Doctor's Advocate the solid production is back, but the guests are even better. Verses provided by Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Will.i.am, Kurupt, Nas and Xzibit easily beat anything that could've been provided by 50 Cent, G-Unit, or Eminem. Most importantly though, Games rapping has greatly improved. Lyrically its stronger (though the rampant name dropping is still present) and his flow is smoother and his pacing varied. There are genuine surprising moments like on the song Wouldn't Get Far. Where the Game adapts effortlesslyto any beat provided. All in all a great achievement, the incessant name dropping could be avoided and his rather bloated ego also detract a bit. Nonetheless, easily one of the best rap albums of the year.… Collapse
