Black Wall Street's The Game was recently on tour poking fun of the Rick Ross vs. 50 Cent beef when he broke the news about his forthcoming album.
Along with debunking his alleged retirement from rap talk, Game seemed to enjoy being on the sideline of a prominent beef.
"I love y'all, I swear to God I love y'all," Game told fans at a recent concert. "I'm not gonna lie, I'm in the studio working on my fourth album." "I ain't finished a show out in Cali in how long," he told another set of fans at a different performance. "I've been in the f*cking house trying to stay the f*ck outta trouble, get my probation right. I even grew out a f*cking beard like Rick Ross. Did I say Rick Ross? I'm sorry 50, I didn't mean that. I didn't mean to say Rick Ross. I don't wanna say Rick Ross, 50 might get mad at me... " (World Star Hip Hop)
While an official name has yet to be confirmed by the West Coast rapper, blog sites have begun reporting on the project's production and title credits.
It seems the rapper has changed his mind and is working on a new album titled Global Warming entirely produced by Cool & Dre. The production duo have been responsible for several of The Game's previous hits including the L.A.X. single "Big Dreams." The album is set for release this summer 2009. (Street Hop)
In the beef between Ross and 50, Game has not jumped to Ross' defense in the battle against his former rap nemesis and boss.
"For the first time in four years, man, I'm kinda low key riding with 50 on this one," Game said in an interview. "I'm siding with this dude homie. It's crazy, I don't know what's gonna come of it but yo, Ross, call me on my phone man...Call me on three-way so I can get you outta this mess, man... took his baby mama shopping. She's trying on fur coats with the Stevie Wonder jamming...Eh, Rick Ross, man, holla at your boy! 50 eating you boy!" (KUBE 93)
Game is currently on a nationwide tour in support of last summer's L.A.X.
He has assembled a coast-to-coast US trek to support his latest effort. The club/theater outing is scheduled to visit nearly 30 cities, starting with several California performances in mid-February. Beginning Feb. 18 and concluding Mar. 29, stops include Los Angeles, Phoenix, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, Boise, Denver, Tulsa, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, New Haven, Providence, Norfolk, New York and more.
