On Game Tight, JT the Bigga Figga continues to polish his rhymes with quicker flow and more to say but still struggles to craft a solid album. Anyone already owning his Dwellin' in the Labb album will be frustrated to find that quite a few songs from that album reappear on this album along with some songs from the Playaz n' the Game. This mix of old and new presents some major consistency problems, mostly because JT has changed his style considerably since these early albums. For the first time, he shows a melodic R&B flavor on the new songs, integrating background soul vocalists and a smoother style of production. The appearance of Snoop Dogg on "Game Tight" and "Father Figga" also presents some problems. Snoop can lay down some tight rhymes, but his style doesn't exactly fit in with that of the other rappers on this album, especially on "Father Figga," a song he practically handles by himself with little assistance. It's sad to see that just as JT begins to master his rhymes and hook up with premium guest stars such as Snoop, he moves towards R&B and thinks that it will work on an album filled with many of his older songs with a strong gangsta flavor.
