I am happy with the service received on my purchase as I was kept up to date with regard to my order not only by the status on the website but also through email notifications. The price was excellent as well, on top of that I also received a voucher which I redeemed which also brought down the total purchase price even further down. The products are awesome as well :).
I have a couple of products on my basket that I am about to purchase. I wish you could also have a discount for purchases over a R1000.00.

The Game is the west coast's best chance at a revival, he's fresh, he's got the street credibility, he's got the doctor behind him and he is G-Unit approved (at least prior to the release). Guerilla Black couldn't do it, the load was too heavy for Xzibit to carry, Dilated Peoples, Jurassic 5, Planet Asia do not have the right profile, and at a rate of one album every seven years Dr. Dre will not be the West Coast's resurrection. Unfortunately after listening to The Documentary the west coast will have to wait a little longer for their resurrection.
That's not to say that the album is bad, in fact this album is definitely leading the race for best album of the year so far. "Westside Story" is already a classic, "Dreams" is one of Kanye's best beats, "Hate it or Love it" is my submission for song of the year (50 kills it), "Higher" is the perfect fix for those of us who've been fiendin' for a Dre beat, "How We Do" is a hit and that is just the first 20 minutes of The Documentary. The rest of the album does not let up either with Just Blaze, Timberland, Scott Storch, Eminem etc. all lacing Game with the perfect soundtrack to narrate his documentary.
Most people have complained about the fact that The Game is just name dropping the whole time but I do not have a problem with that. The Game knows and loves Hip-Hop and hearing how hip-hop has influenced him makes me relate to him better because I also love and know hip-hop. The Game's lyrics are honest (whether they are true or not) and are delivered with a humility that's hard to find in the majors these days. Rather than claim to be the west coast king The Game readily admits that he is a student of the game. His gruff voice and clear delivery commands attention unlike 50 and Lloyd Bank's mumbled raps or Tony Yayo's annoying voice. His flow although force at times never sounds it. Lyrically he is not the greatest but he is no slouch either and The Documentary is littered with gems that would even have the backpackers head nodding.
This is a great album with the best production since Dre 2001 and if you don't mind the name dropping then you'll enjoy it even more.
