West Coast rapper Game has announced that Young Money's Nicki Minaj is one of the latest artist to be featured on his upcoming R.E.D. Album.
Writing via his Twitter page, Game said the Lil Wayne protege made the album cut.
"Nicki Minaj made the R.E.D. album. gone be CLASSIC," Game wrote Monday (December 14) night. "RT @THEREALCAWB: @ihategame stop f*cking ignoring my tweets if you keep niki on the album im not buying and i bought all your albums you ... @THEREALCAWB well don't buy it then f*ggot !!! no dis-respect to y'all gay folks but this n*gga might be mo h*mo than y'all."

The rapper recently talked about working with pop singer Justin Timberlake for the solo project.
"Yeah, Justin Timberlake came through last night," Game revealed in an interview. "It just, the vibe changed. It went to where I could see Grammy awards. I had a really dope energy from him just being in the booth last night. Pharrell didn't call him, I don't know how he fell through but he fell through man. Two JT's in the studio at the same time and the PW, it's gonna be classic. Justin Timberlake is big sh*t man. Everybody listens to Justin Timberlake -- from little white girls from Malibu to chicks in the hood. The songs he comes out with to the features on Timbaland's album, and working with Pharrell in the past and all the way back to my little sister loving her N Sync CDs." (Rap-Up)
Game has also reunited with his former Aftermath Records boss, Dr. Dre.
"R.E.D., I'm just painting the whole world red," Game promised in an interview with DJ Green Lantern. "It's basically the re-dedication, it's my most hood and street album since The Documentary so it's basically being rededicated to my fans, my family, my kids, my block, my hood. Like, hip-hop, the R.E.D. Album is gonna be crazy. I'm back in with Dre everyday going hard in the studio doing the little stuff, working on Detox with him and he's working on The R.E.D. Album with me. It's just, we got a good feeling out here...I did my last two albums without Dre and even though, I just did it on my own man. When I talked to him, he [was like] I've been doing a good job and he took a listen and I did my thing. I learned well, my time at Aftermath was spent well, so getting back in, that old feeling came back. The chemistry is crazy, I got a lot of love for that dude and that's why I never really disrespected him or really went at Aftermath, I only did what I had to do to survive man, but I got love for dude and we back in grindin' man." (That's Hip Hop)
Despite Game's Aftermath ties, 50 Cent recently said the former G-Unit member and Young Buck were still signed to his label.
"Hot Rod and Spider Loc are still technically signed to G-Unit Records," Fif said in an interview. "Buck is still signed to G-Unit Records, hopefully he can come up with a record. If he can come up with a song, we can get my money back, you know what I'm saying? I hope he can come up with something right quick. I'm looking forward to that check at least. They gotta pay me not to put the [G-Unit] logo on it." (This Is 50)
The R.E.D. Album is now scheduled to drop Tuesday, February 16th, 2010.
