Review: Silkk The Shocker – Change The Game

Silkk The Shocker – Change The Game was one of the highly anticipated albums that was supposed to be released on No Limit Records when they rebranded themselves as The New No Limit Records. Silkk was really going to change the game with his Change The Game album.

Some of you No Limit fans may remember Silkk The Shocker – Change The Game was advertised in the 504 Boyz – Ballers album in 2002. The album was also advertised in Billboard Magazine the same year. In December of 2002, Silkk confirmed his Change The Game album was 70% complete. This album would be one of his more club oriented albums which cashed in on and captured the Crunk era of the mid-2000’s.

The album Silkk The Shocker – Change The Game was set to be released in stores in spring 2003 but his album was never released. The reason why Silkk The Shocker – Change The Game was never released is because No Limit Records changed distribution companies from Universal Records to Koch Records in 2004. Master P sold The New No Limit Records catalog to Universal Records in late 2003 and Silkk The Shocker – Change The Game was part of The New No Limit Records catalog which was sold to Universal Records. That is what happened to the album.

We Gon Party was a crunk party rap song with super thick beats produced by XL. Those staccato drums are super thick and are backed by heavy bass. We Gon Party was the first buzz single for his Change The Game album. However the song failed to chart. The song was issued as a CD single promo.

You Eat, I Eat was the pre-single for the album which was supposed to issued as a CD single promo but never was for some reason. The message of the song is Blood is thicker than water. It’s just a song saying whoever got it, it don’t matter. Master P elaborated on the song saying, elaborating on “It’s just a song saying whoever got it, it don’t matter. If I got a dollar, he got a dollar. If he got a dollar, I got a dollar. Blood is thicker than water.”

The song Hey was of those club songs with that hyper crunk sound backed with big trumpets and horns. The Earth, Wind & Fire trumpet section play the horns in it.

I rate this album 4/5****!
