After the success of Doctor's Advocate, L.A.X., the Game's third and supposedly final album, serves as his victory lap. The L.A. native shines when cooking up hard drive-by music, lacing the Travis Barker-produced "Dope Boys" with cocky belligerence and cranky indifference ("I'm sick of bl*wj*bs, b*tch, leave me alone"). "My Life" is more serious, as he and Lil' Wayne hauntingly contemplate why God has spared them while taking so many friends. And while "Gentleman's Affair" and "Touchdown" fall flat, L.A.X. is a solid final chapter to the Game's gangsta saga.
