West Coast rapper Game recently talked about Jay-Z and Kanye West's new Watch the Throne album and who he would make a similar project with from his side of town.
Game said he would roll with rap veteran Snoop Dogg if given an opportunity to make a joint LP.
"If I had to link up with someone on the West Coast, first and foremost it would be Snoop - Snoop is my dude, that would be crazy, that would be a crazy collaborative effort right there," Game said in an interview. "[Does the West need a Watch the Throne-esque album?] I don't think the West Coast needs anything, I think we've been perfectly fine doing what we been doing forever, the West don't need nothing we straight, we get everything we need -- we got the DUB! We the only Coast that can throw up the DUB so let's ride with that." (Dubcnn)
Earlier this month, Game rated Watch the Throne a seven out of ten.
"Yeah [I heard the album]. The Swizz [Beatz] one is crazy, the Frank Ocean one is crazy too. Yeah. Some people haven't even heard it yet, that's bad. I think it's a good, good seven," Game said when asked by radio host Jenny Boom Boom to rate it from 1 to 10. "Seven. Yeah. Well, you know six points went to Kanye." ("Jenny Boom Boom")
A few days prior, Game said it was up to him and Lil Wayne's Carter IV to become hip-hop classics this summer.
"Well Weezy, I guess its up to us now to put out a "CLASSIC" !," he tweeted August 8th. (Game's Twitter)
