Black Wall Street‘s Game has explained replacing DJ Drama with DJ Skee for his upcoming The Red Room mixtape.
According to Game, Drama wanted to avoid getting involved in any of the rapper’s possible 50 Cent beef.
“I immediately called Skee, but he was in Toronto,” Game said about reaching out to Skee once he and Drama amicably agreed to part ways on the project. “He got back, came in and then the tape took a turn left, man. But it’s all good, man, ’cause me and Skee got history. Skee’s at home right now just going in working on it to get it out to the people ASAP. So there ain’t no love lost to Drama, I talk to him. He asked me if there wasn’t gonna be anymore G-Unit disses on the tape and I was like, ‘Not really,’ but I reserve the right to do whatever I want. So it’s probably best that I use Skee.” (MTV)
The rapper revealed Drama’s involvement on the tape earlier this year.
“I got so many amazing records, I don’t know if I should go hard to the streets or go radio,” Game said about his upcoming R.E.D. Album. “But before the album there will be a mixtape with DJ Drama, Red Everything. Red Everything mixtape — it’s a bunch of tracks I did specifically for Drama. They’re full songs mixed with a few freestyles. I’m trying to finish up ‘400 Bars’ and get it on there. Ain’t nobody piss me off that much. But even if that ain’t on there, the mixtape is still gonna be crazy.” (MTV)
Earlier this week, Game said Skee was impressed with the material he recorded.
“The mixtape is like an album,” Game said in an interview. “DJ Skee is hosting it and he hit me like 20 minutes ago and was like ‘Wow,’ and I’m like ‘Wow what?’ and he’s like, ‘The sh*t you gave me is crazy. I just finished downloading everything and am starting to water it.’ He’s like ‘It’s crazy,’ and that’s how mixtapes should be. I’m glad that ‘400 Bars’ is the featured song off of there and everybody loves it because now I can follow that up with hood smashes.” (Rap-Up TV)
Game’s “400 Bars” took a slight shot at G-Unit over the span of 20 minutes.
Over the wistful, soul-sampled Just Blaze beat that backed Jay Electronica‘s Booth-acclaimed “Exhibit C,” the Left Coast heavyweight empties out his rhyme book, spitting extensively about his cars, his mic skills, his beef with G-Unit, and pretty much everything else under the sun. Though its epic length may scare off the faint of heart, this freestyle succeeds in proving that Game has lyrics for days (and days, and days). (DJ Booth)
