West Coast rapper Game recently reflected on what his next move will be following a final album release through Interscope Records, hinting at an interest to hop onto the big screen.
Still two full albums away before completing a five-LP contract obligation, Game is already plotting his future.
“You know Interscope/Aftermath, that’s my label and I’ma hold it down for them forever,” Game said. “I’ve been there for four albums, and I’ve got one more album before I’m a free agent. We’re gonna try and turn that one around real quick, then I’ll make the executive decision on what I’ll do with the rest of my career. I might get into acting, I might go over to Cash Money. You never know.” (“106 & Park”)
In late July, Game revealed his intention to consider making a Cash Money label move.
With only one more album left on his current deal (he’s back onInterscope 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)
Label talk to the side, the former G-Unit member recently discussed his forthcoming R.E.D. Album.
“The album is real theatrical; it’s a movie,” Game said. “And it’s narrated by Dr. Dre — the entire album.” Dre, who originally signed Game to his Aftermath label and oversaw the rapper’s debut, The Documentary, has played a limited role in the rapper’s career since Game’s fallout with 50 Cent, who is also signed to Dre’s Aftermath. Since then, the West Coast production icon hasn’t contributed beats or vocals to any of Game’s subsequent albums. And though the two have since reconciled and have been spotted in the studio together, this will mark the first time that they’ve actually collaborated on album-worthy material. (RapFix)
Earlier this year, Game cited his forthcoming LP as album of the year worthy.
“The ‘R.E.D.’ album is going to remind everybody of what hip-hop is supposed to be in its prime,” says Game. “The ‘R.E.D.’ album will be the best album this year hands down. There’s nobody putting out an album this year that will even be able to compete with the skill level– the bar is gonna be set after this album drops. I guarantee it now from start to finish.” (Billboard)
The R.E.D. Album is slated to drop Tuesday, August 23rd.
