Producers Cool & Dre recently spoke on working with The Game for his upcoming R.E.D. Album and said they have already recorded nearly ten songs with the rapper.
While Dre labeled the Black Wall Street leader as "dope," Cool broke down Game's intensive work ethic in approaching the new album.
"Since we have that chemistry, I think a lot of producers could just crack 'I can't do nothin' right now! Like, listen to these beats!' and we'll knock out like three, four in one night, one session," Cool explained. "The first day we went to L.A., we had already done a bunch of sh*t for him, and we're just playing 'em [and he's like] 'All right, I'm ready to go in the booth.' Boom, we knocked out like seven different ideas so me and Dre are like 'F*ck, we done let all of our arsenal off in this first night!' [laughs] Next day, [Game says] 'What else you got? Let's get it going!' We let off all our arsenal, he recorded to seven, eight records on the first night. Laid a verse, a hook here, two verses here, a whole song. I'm like, 'Yo Dre, he's recording to everything we did on the way up. D*mn, now we gotta start up some new sh*t with him.' Certain artists we just have that great chemistry with, man and Game is definitely one of 'em." (Jessie Maguire)
The Game recently spoke on his forthcoming R.E.D. Album and said it would give fans a similar vibe to his debut, The Documentary.
"The R.E.D. Album is a little soulful," Game said in an interview over the summer. "It's crazy because it could be pre-Documentary, and it could be post-R.E.D. Album, like it's early and late. It's early and late, so it's just on time. If you could understand that. It's like I'm raw. Like [on] some of the songs my flow is as raw as before I got with Dre...Then the songs are so big and melodic and so music-filled that you could tell that I've been around for a while...So, you know, that's the vibe and it's soulful, but it's still right where you need it to be. It's not too sample-heavy and not just that soulful where it takes away from what I do, and it isn't gonna bore you or tire you out. This album is going to be incredible, man, and I would say it's going to be my best album." (MTV)
He also said the project could be one of his most lyrical records to date.
"The album will be out later this year," Game said in an interview last July. "I know people say it all the time, this album re-rooted me, took me back to The Documentary days and this might be my hardest-spitting album. Can't wait to finish that, the anticipation level is through the roof. I'ma give the people what they need." (103 Jams)
A portion of Game's studio sessions for the album landed online earlier this year which featured him rhyming over an R&B-laced track.
"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."
