Game recently released footage of his studio sessions working on The R.E.D. Album.
"Look, riding through New York, Boston Red Sox, uhh, I'm about to kill this sh*t," Game said in a video. "Drop top rose phantom, call it a headshot/Back up in this b*tch like a red dot. About to sell another milli like the n*gga with the dreadlocks/VIP, that's me, call the waitress before I get there/Have a top model chick taste it/Patron fountain...Haters don't want it with the young Don P/From the back of the club to the front with his whole army."

In addition to his album, he previously promised to release a wave of new mixtapes this summer.
The Game is in L.A. right now, working on The R.E.D. Album with Cool & Dre. Although a release date has not been set, The Game will release unofficial projects this summer. "This summer, it ain't a n*gga that's gonna out-mixtape me," Game said in an interview. "I'm dropping a mixtape every week. It ain't gonna be like no bullsh*t mixtape sh*t. I'm dropping mixtapes that sound better than people's albums. The first one is gonna be the Bloody Thumb with the red thumb print on the front." (MTV)
Aside from his upcoming rap group and album, Game has also kept busy dissing Jay-Z, most notably with the release of "I'm So Wavy."
"N*ggas pop tags, I pop the 4-5," Game raps. "N*ggas got swag, I got the tech nine...Yeah, you got cheese and I kill rats/Translation, I still trap/Now do something with that, or respond to this/And with those big a** lips, you got my name in your mouth I hope it taste like uhhh, no homo, one more time/uhhh, that's your promo/And I been hard to the core since I went solo/Only man on my horse like my all black polo...Got the camel in a choke hold/Tryin' to son me, I'm not from N-Y-C/You can't even have a child by your Destiny/And I ain't mean to take a shot at B[eyonce], I blacked out like you did Free...Too hardcore to be a Jay-Z/Rock more red than Weezy, Baby...And this ain't a diss, I was just out in L.A. with Dra[ke], b*tch...That's Ye's brother so I'ma give him some advice, get rid of Amber Rose/I know how she get down, I was at Diddy's after party/Sippin' on the Cris, she was whispering to Chris, Brown/Then Chris turned his head like 'No'/Then 'Gold Digger' came on, I pointed out like 'H*e'/And this ain't about her, this about Hov/I'm about to drop down the Roc and take it to the stove."
