Game previously talked about competing on June 15th with Drake's debut album.
"Nah man, it's just a package deal, you should go and support hip-hop, go get Thank Me Later and go grab R.E.D. and you good," Game said in an interview. "You know you're good, then the next week you come back and buy Eminem, great. June is gonna be a big month. So no, it's no competition. Everything don't gotta be a competition and we're not even the same type of [artist,] we're not in the same lane. I respect what he does and I talked to him before, he's a fan of mine so we'll just keep it like that and put it out, people will go and buy them and who cares who's number one, number two, it don't make no sense to me because I've been around and sold millions of records already. I have nothing else to prove." (Rap-Up TV)
Game recently released a statement discussing the project being co-produced.
It has been was announced that Pharrell will be co-executive producing the album, along with Game. Previously, the Star Trak founder did this with albums from Snoop Dogg and Slim Thug. Additionally, Game released a statement, "[Dr.] Dre is a Hip Hop legend and one of the reasons I'm making music. To be working so closely with him again...man, I don't even have words to describe it...my two favorite producers are helping me with the direction of this album, I couldn't be in a better position."

Earlier this year, Game said he would be open to collaborating with pop star Lady Gaga.
"I'm trying to get [Interscope co-founder and chairman] Jimmy Iovine to throw me in the studio with Lady Gaga," he explained in an interview. "She's a rebel, and I go against the grain every day, so, if it happens, it'll be monumental for the state of music...Dre and I have always been on the same team, I've just been too wild for him at times. He's older and legendary and he's been through enough drama in his career and doesn't have to jump into my drama. So, I understood that and why he pulled back." (ABC News)
