[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After West Coast YG broke down his "Like This" track, producer S1 unwinds Game's new "Blood Diamonds" track.]
Bigs up to my co-manager Ricky Anderson for this record, man. He was in the studio with Game and he said Game started going through some joints and he actually had two joints from me. This was one of the joints that he liked.
As far as making the beat, me and my team produced the beat. It was me and I had another producer named J Rhodes and another producer, Greg Fears, and it was kind of one of those things where J Rose sent me the idea and once I heard it, I heard elements in it that I liked.
So I took those elements that I liked, stripped it down and started to rebuild on the idea. Then I sent it to my producer Greg Fears and he's like a super composer. He added some strings to it and it was a real collaborative effort on that record.
When it came out, it came out really super. I'm just excited for them [my production team], more so than me because I'm excited for them to have their own major placement with this Game record as well.
