Around mid-December, Game spoke on linking up with Stat Quo to launch their new label.
"We compiled a bunch of things that was taught to both of us individually by Dr. Dre and our own separate experiences on Aftermath and we created Rolex Records. It's a no tolerance, only dope music. We're not putting out anything subpar and if we don't get the greatest new artists or the best new artist that we feel can sell millions of records, then we're not even going to do it, man. We got a few people that are in demo mode and hopefully somebody jumps out. It's kind of like a hood 'American Idol' internally. Wait and hopefully somebody jumps out, we'll have somebody soon."

The platinum-selling rapper broke the Rolex Records news a few weeks ago.
"I just started a new record label, Rolex Records, and we're going to get off the ground and see if we can move," he says. The label is a joint venture between Game and fellow rapper, Stat Quo. "He was signed to Aftermath with me in the beginning. Now we'rebusiness partners, which is cool because he was a good friend of mine and he's just as equally music smart so we'll see how it goes," says Game. (Billboard)
In light of the buzz, SOHH reached out to Game protégé Compton Menace about the new venture.
"A lot of people think the Black Wall Street is a record label but the Black Wall Street is not a record label. It's actually just a movement, you understand what I'm saying? So as far as that, the Black Wall Street, the movement, it's always going to be with me and I'm always going to hold that down because that's what I came from. But as far as business goes, it's not the label so I've got to go to other business ventures. As far as [Game's Rolex Records], it's all about what's best for different people and what's best for me is what I've got going on." (SOHH Guest Star)
