West Coast rapper Game has revealed the artwork behind his upcoming Brake Lights mixtape.
The cover landed online via his Twitter page Sunday (July 18) morning.
Game dropped his first leak, "M.I.A.", off the mixtape earlier this week, and now, here is a look at the mixtapes cover. It is predominantly red with Game's signature style name at the top with "brake lights" in lowercase beneath. DJ Skee's name is also featured on the cover as he will serve as the project's host. The mixtape will be released next week and is to be produced entirely by Cool & Dre. (57th Ave)

Cool & Dre were busy in the studio with The Game Wednesday, June 23rd recording a hot new track titled "Good Girl, Bad GirL" at Encore Studios in Burbank, California last week. Cool & Dre have 3 songs on the album titled "THE R.E.D. album." The single will feature a verse by hip-hop recording star Drake. Queen Latifah stopped by to hang with the superstars while they were recorded. (Press Release)
Last April, Game talked about replacing DJ Drama with DJ Skee for his Red Room mixtape.
"I immediately called Skee, but he was in Toronto," Game said about reaching out to Skee once he and Drama amicably agreed to part ways on the project. "He got back, came in and then the tape took a turn left, man. But it's all good, man, 'cause me and Skee got history. Skee's at home right now just going in working on it to get it out to the people ASAP. So there ain't no love lost to Drama, I talk to him. He asked me if there wasn't gonna be anymore G-Unit disses on the tape and I was like, 'Not really,' but I reserve the right to do whatever I want. So it's probably best that I use Skee." (MTV)
