Black Wall Street leader Game has opened up about his time in the studio with pop star Justin Timberlake and said their collaboration could land them a Grammy Award.
Game detailed his admiration for Timberlake's willingness to collaborate.
"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 hinted at working with Timberlake in a Twitter posting last week.
"just gettin home from studio. was n wit Pharrell listenin 2 new beats & out of nowhere "Justin Timberlake" walks in, 2 b continued... R.E.D.," he wrote Tuesday (December 8). "Had the kraziest session last night n the studio. I made a #1 hit so I'm sendin my ENERGY 2 all the aspiring producers & new artists. R.E.D." (Game's Twitter)
The West Coast rapper recently revealed how many tracks he has done with Pharrell for his R.E.D. Album.
"Pharrell is my new favorite producer," Game said in an interview. "I got a whole new respect for Pharrell and The Neptunes but especially Pharrell and how he do his thing. The way that he coach me when we're in the booth, it's like a Pat Riley to a Tim Hardaway or a Pat Riley to a Magic Johnson. The way that he let me run point guard when I go inside that booth is just crazy. And The Neptunes, people don't really understand who The Neptunes are but if you take away The Neptunes from hip-hop, you take away the color in hip-hop. You take away these new kids that are jerkin', you take away Jay-Z's 'Change Clothes,' Neptunes brought a whole new sound, a whole new aura to hip-hop and it manifested and turned into something that nobody thought would be this big, I'm just excited about being in with Pharrell man, he's my new favorite producer and we established this friendship and bond that goes beyond the music. Me and Pharrell, we did four records yesterday and three today. We recording man and I asked Pharrell if he would executive produce the album and he said 'H*ll yeah.'" (Dubcnn)
He also discussed the album's overall feel.
"It's just Game now, I took the t-h-e off, you know what I'm saying," Game confirmed in an interview. "I'm just coastin' through, day-by-day, somebody got a script, I'ma read it, if it fits me, hopefully I'll get it. I'm just day-by-day right now. I'm strictly on the color red, I ain't going no further than that, it's gonna be the craziest album out of all four of 'em and it's the most hood album...You know how we do it under the Aftermath umbrella, it be on the low, but it will be in stores December 8th and that's how we gonna roll with it. We're putting out two singles next week..." (Hip Hollywood)
The R.E.D. Album is now scheduled to drop Tuesday, February 16th, 2010.
