Former Aftermath Records artist Game has shown signs of returning to Dr. Dre's renowned label after posting a photo wearing the company's logos this weekend.
Although Game has yet to confirm or deny a comeback to Aftermath, he did, however, post an image with the record label pendants.
"It's funny how things come full circle. R.E.D.http://tweetphoto.com/10625448," Game wrote prior to posting the photo. "Somebody just hit me n asked: What are those "A" chains for ? now u know u need yo azz whooped !" (Game's Twitter)
The rapper recently spoke on his admiration for the Doc.
"I used to always wonder why [Dr. Dre] would make one face [during photo shoots]. He wouldn't change it. He wouldn't smile. He wouldn't turn profile. It [would] just be straight on. If you saw Dr. Dre in pictures, it's always straight up. It's the same facial expression. And I asked, 'Yo, why do you do that?' and he said, 'It's the only way I like to see myself ... When the magazine cover comes back or the album comes back and when someone istaking pictures and I see it, it's the only way I like to see myself.' You think [Dre is] being rude, but he just knows. So after that, you know, if I don't feel comfortable doing it, I'm not doing it. And, at the end of day, I have to be happy with it. I mean, the photographer's taking pictures, you guys got a magazine to sell, but I've gotta be comfortable with who I am." (Rolling Out Magazine)
Last November, Game revealed his return to working with 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, myfamily, 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."

Game's time on Aftermath reportedly ended in 2006.
Due to his disputes with 50 Cent, Game left Aftermath Entertainment and signed with Geffen Records (another label under Universal Music Group's Interscope-Geffen-A&M division) to terminate his contractual obligations with G-Unit in the summer of 2006. The rapper's second album Doctor's Advocate was released on November 14, 2006. (Wikipedia)
