In New York: A Documentary Film, Ric Burns (brother of the famed documentarian Ken Burns) presents an exhaustive history of New York City from the settling of the area by the Dutch to the attack by terrorists nearly 400 years later. Told in a sentimental tone, Burns weaves a lyrical tale of the great metropolis that encompasses not only the city's streets, but also that of the history of America. Though around fourteen hours in length, this epic documentary presents a thoughtful, entertaining look at our relatively young country.

The Documentary is the debut studio album by American rapper The Game. It was released on January 18, 2005, by Aftermath Entertainment, G-Unit Records and Interscope Records. The record serves as his major-label debut that was preceded by the release of his independently-released debut of Untold Story (2004). In 2001, after The Game was recovering from a shooting, he embarked his rap career. He later was discovered by Dr. Dre, who Dre signed The Game to his Aftermath Entertainment label. The album includes production from high-profile producers such as Dr. Dre, Kanye West, Scott Storch and Timbaland, among others. The album features guest appearances from 50 Cent, Eminem, Nate Dogg and Faith Evans, among others. This would be The Game's only album on Aftermath and G-Unit Records, as he left the label, after a feud began between him and fellow G-Unit label-mate 50 Cent. The Documentary debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 586,000 units in the first week. In March 2005, the Recording Industry Association of America certified the album double Platinum, selling five million copies worldwide. The Documentary received generally positive reviews, with critics praising the album's production. Since the album's release, The Game was credited as a driving force in reviving the West Coast hip hop scene that had been overshadowed by artists from the East, Midwest and South. The record remains as The Game's best-selling album to date. On June 16, 2014, the sequel to the album was announced, called The Documentary 2, which was released on October 9, 2015, followed by the release of The Documentary 2.5.
