Black Wall Street's Game has upped his level of appreciation for Pharrell Williams, the executive producer of the upcoming R.E.D. Album, by tattooing his record label logo onto his body.
According to Game, the ink is a symbol of his loyalty to the Neptunes hitmaker.
"Pharrell's gonna take my career to the next level, keep me 'hood and cross me over at the same time by executive producing my album, so that's how I show my loyalty," Game explained in an interview. "Pharrell is my friend. We've created a work bond and established a friendship. Star Trak is gonna make me money in the future -- that logo, that brand, that man helping me. That's something that's gonna put milk in my refrigerator and help me feed my kids, keep them in private school, and keep them doing what they do." (Rap-Up)
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)
Game previously revealed Pharrell's executive producer role last month.
"The R.E.D. Album is gonna be classic, that's a promise," the rapper wrote. "Executive produced by Dr. Dre and Pharrell. The music is phenomenal." (Game's Twitter)
He recently discussed the album's overall feel and initial anticipation to drop it in late December.
"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 slated to drop Tuesday, February 16th, 2010.
