West Coast rapper Game's final contractual Interscope Records album is gathering up star-studded appeal with DJ Khaled now helping co-executive produce F.I.V.E. (Fear Is Victory Evolving).
Game broke the news of Khaled's involvement Saturday (April 14) afternoon.
"COOLANDDRE Just got off the horn wit @djkhaled & made it official. He's co-executive producing F.I.V.E with me ! #WeDaBest #BW$MG #Epidemic," he tweeted. (Game's Twitter)
Production duo Cool & Dre also confirmed Khaled's involvement on the record.
"Just got off the jack with @thegame and I'm proud to announce @djkhaled will be joining forces with us on FIVE! Oh it's a problem now!," they tweeted Saturday. (Cool & Dre's Twitter)
While he has not made a decision yet, Game recently hinted at going independent after F.I.V.E.'s release.
"Independent. That seems like a really, really good move where I can capitalize off of all the finances being made off of my music for once. But, I don't know, I kinda like having a lot of help, a lot of assistance from a big label," Game told MTV News. "I don't know, maybe we'll have a meeting about a lot of money or I'll be talking to my conscience." (MTV)
A few weeks ago, the platinum-selling rapper discussed his uncertain future following the LP.
"[Interscope Records head] Jimmy Iovine is, sh*t, probably weeks out from opening the budget for my fifth album," Game added. "And then once I do this F.I.V.E. album, it might be a wrap. We'll see. I know somebody going to give me some millions before I do anything. I see myself getting a lot of money to carry out the remaining time in my career. It don't really matter where it's at--it's just the imprint on the back of the album." (XXL Mag)
