West Coast rapper Game is looking to join the likes of Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne and Bow Wow by hinting at plans to ink a deal with Cash Money Records.
According to Game, he only has two album obligations before getting freed from Interscope.
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)
Last spring, Soulja Boy Tell Em said he planned to leave Interscope for Cash Money.
“I met with Baby and Slim down in Miami,” Soulja said in an interview. “He’s trying to get me to come over to Cash Money…I still got paperwork with Interscope Records, so I’m just trying to figure out what I’ma do. I got a lot of great options on the table — I’ve been a fan of Cash Money since I was young. I’ve been listening to Birdman’s music since I was growing up. I would have never thought.” (Rap-Up)
However, Baby later came forward and denied the rapper’s claims.
“YMCMB busine$$ real talk.I neva tried 2 sign n0b0dy thts already sign 2 s0meb0dy.we d0nt r0ck like tht.I neva tried 2 sign s0ulja.but I respect tha lil h0mey wrk keep getn it$$$$,” he tweeted April 30th. (Baby’s Twitter)
Earlier this year, Baby said fans could anticipate more greatness from the Cash Money/Young Money regime.
Cash Money is planning for a busy year, too, which will also include releases by Drake, [Nicki] Minaj, Kevin Rudolf, Lil Twist, Mack Maine, Shanell and Tyga. “It feels like a new excitement around here,” Birdman reports. “We had Nicki blast off, Drake blast off, Wayne’s back…It just feels like a whole new excitement around here. It’s a real family, a team. We look after each other and are there for each other. We dedicate our life to this, and we make sacrifices for success. There’s no stopping with us.” (Billboard)
Game’s R.E.D. Album is slated to drop Tuesday, August 23rd.
