Snoop Dogg recently spoke on reuniting Game and Dre for the long-awaited Detox album.
"Yeah, actually, we working on the Detox album right now," Snoop revealed in an interview. "Actually, me and Dr. Dre and D.O.C. and Stat Quo, we in there every day trying to go hard, I came and called Game up so he could come and be a part of this particular record that Dre had that was needing his vocals and needed his assistance on. We just trying to bring it all back together again. One thing about me, I've always been known to bring people together to solidify relationship. It's about what we can do, not what we did. So we doing some things to try and bring this movement back, so that's what this picture was about. It was about symbolizing the West Coast movement..." (Big Boy's Neighborhood)
Producers Cool & Dre revealed new details on Game's album and expressed their intent to produce the entire project.
"It's a f*cking great experience working with The Game," Dre said agreeing with Cool. "To know that you have someone that you consider family and the music you guys make goes, every time. Every time, it's just a great chemistry. Like 'Hate It Or Love It,' it went huge. Our first number one record of our career. 'My Life,' Top 10. 'Big Dreams,' a record that didn't get no push, f*cking charted. He's dope, the new album is so retarded. We did some sh*t, we're going up there this week. We did a couple new records. We're trying to completely f*cking produce the whole thing, but you know, it's tough. People will step up their level of sh*t for Game. So you know, it's dope because it forces us to step it up...It's dope because he goes in there and writes a f*cking classic record. You know what makes Game dope? He respects the art form, he loves hip-hop so much. Like he respects classic records." (Jessie Maguire)
The Game previously said the project 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)
