Game’s debut album, The Documentary, was released in January 2005 and it produced five singles, including the two US Billboard Hot 100 top five singles « How We Do » and « Hate It or Love It », with rapper 50 Cent in which both singles reached gold sales status.

The album reached number one in the US, and shipped over 2.5 million copies and was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). After the albums release Game was considered to be a driving force in reviving and bringing back the West Coast hip hop scene, which had been overshadowed by artists from theEast and South. Game was nominated for two 2006 Grammy Awards: Grammy Award for Best Rap Song and Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for the smash hit single « Hate It or Love It ».
After Game had a falling out from Aftermath Entertainment and G-Unit Records, he retained his deal with Interscope Records while merely swapping roofs with subsidiary, Geffen Records. Game’s second album, Doctor’s Advocate, debuted at number one on the USBillboard 200 albums chart making it his second number one album in a row, also making it another commercial success with shipping just under 358,000 sales in its first week. Doctor’s Advocate produced three singles « It’s Okay (One Blood) » with reggae singer Junior Reid, « Let’s Ride » and « Wouldn’t Get Far » with rapper Kanye West. The album was set out by Game to prove that he was still able to make good music and be a successful artist as he did on The Documentary without the help of Dr. Dre or 50 Cent.
Game’s third album, LAX, went head to head with heavy metal band Slipknot’s All Hope Is Gone on the Billboard 200, seeing that both albums where released on August 26, 2008, therefore both albums where competing for the number one spot on the Billboard 200 albums charts. LAX ended up debuting at Number two on the Billboard 200, at first it looked like LAX had debuted ahead of All Hope Is Gone by 13 copies, with such a close difference. Initially, Billboard published an article stating that Game had secured the top spot with a margin of 13 units, in what was described as the « closest race for number one since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking Data in 1991 ». Slipknot’s labels Warner Music Group and Roadrunner Records asked for a soundscan recount, a historic first. Nielsen proceeded to the recount, which placed LAX at number two with 238,382 copies, and Slipknot in first position with 239,516 copies scanned, a margin of 1,134 copies. After the recount 12 hours later, the article was rewritten and Slipknot was awarded the number one spot, having sold 239,516 units. LAX produced four singles « Game’s Pain » with R&B singer Keyshia Cole, « Dope Boys » with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, « My Life » with rapper Lil Wayne and « Camera Phone » with R&B singer Ne-Yo.
