Earlier this month, Game said he was trying to place his "400 Bars" song onto a DJ Drama mixtape.
"I got so many amazing records, I don't know if I should go hard to the streets or go radio," Game said about his upcoming R.E.D. Album. "But before the album there will be a mixtape with DJ Drama, Red Everything. Red Everything mixtape -- it's a bunch of tracks I did specifically for Drama. They're full songs mixed with a few freestyles. I'm trying to finish up '400 Bars' and get it on there. Ain't nobody piss me off that much. But even if that ain't on there, the mixtape is still gonna be crazy." (MTV)
Last month, the rapper hinted at the track being worked on via Twitter.
"@djdrama I'm sendin u ALL da music tonite for the mixtape "2010" just been trying to finish "400 bars", that's been the hold up. but i got u," he wrote Monday (January 11). "@snoopdogg just told hit me....... hit you back inna min & let you know what WE ON !!! my n*gga @snoopdogg always keep his nefew laced da fuck up !!! goodlookin cuzz ........

During his brief Jay-Z conflict last summer, Game threatened to drop a "400 Bars" record directed toward Hov.
"If Jay responds with a song, it'll be on his album because he's a pretty smart dude, witty, and he knows it'll benefit him more to put it on The Blueprint, if and when he does, just be on the lookout for '400 Bars' ...I'm a really put my pen on the paper and really strike a match." (103 Jams)
