West Coast rapper Game recently updated fans on his label situation and revealed Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross‘ interest in possibly signing him.
According to Game, Ricky Rozay has displayed interest in snagging him up after his final contractual Interscope Records obligation.
“This is my last studio album for Interscope,” Game told Sway during Wednesday’s episode of “RapFix Live.” “I talked to Ross the other day — shout-out to MMG, Wale and Meek Mill, they started off the MMG Tour in Penn State. I rocked with ‘em onstage and I was talking to Ross, and Ross was like, ‘What’s up with that last album?’ And I’m like, ‘You know, it’s the last album.’ And he was like, ‘Nah, never mind, Jimmy ain’t gon’ let you go.’ So that and talking to [Cash Money’s] Baby and [Lil Wayne] two times a week, you know, it’s cool. I kinda feel like a little free agent in the league real quick.” (MTV)
The Black Wall Street leader also hinted at the possibility of going dolo.
“I been waking up for the last week and just thinking about my own independent grind. I got enough fans to push it. I know if I need media coverage, I got real friends, but I’m just gonna ride it out with Interscope and stay loyal to them and really get this Jesus Piece album going and then make my decision later on.” (MTV)
Last spring, Cash Money boss Birdman spoke on his interest in Game.
“Game is signed to Interscope–I don’t really know his situation. I don’t like to get into talks with other people who are signed to other labels because I wouldn’t want them n*ggas f*cking with nothing that’s mine. So I show respect to whoever they with I know that I told Game, if the time come I would love to sign Game. I think he’s a very talented artist. But right now he’s signed with Interscope, maybe he’s got another album. But when time comes, I’m gonna be there for him too.” (Complex)
Back in summer 2011, the former G-Unit member revealed his intention to consider a Cash Money label move later down the road.
With only one more album left on his current deal (he’s back on Interscope after being shuffled between the ‘Scope and Geffen during his feud with 50 Cent) following The R.E.D. Album, Game said he expects to reach a new agreement with Cash Money sooner rather than later. “We been playing with the idea of going over to Cash Money or trying to marry that and Black Wall Street,” he explained. “So, we’ll figure it out before the end of the day. I definitely think that’s where I’ll probably end up. Cause they winning, they want to win and I been winning and want to continue to win.” (XXL Mag)
