West Coast rapper Game has revealed Interscope Records CEO Jimmy Iovine approved his long-awaited R.E.D. Album solo effort.

Writing on Twitter, Game informed his 411,700 followers of the album’s progress.

Earlier this week, Miami production duo Cool & Dre revealed Game’s upcoming new single.

“Excited about @thegame single Red Nation dropping in the next 2 to 3 weeks. Finally!,” Cool & Dre tweeted Wednesday (March 2). (Cool & Dre’s Twitter)

In late January, Game said his R.E.D. Album was practically completed.

The R.E.D. Album is pretty much 95 percent done,” Game explained in an interview. “Until I find a record that is just so amazing to me, and it’s next level and doesn’t sound like anything that’s out, makes me feel comfortable with it being played on the radio… I won’t give R.E.D. Album a date. At this point, it’s pretty much in my hands. I had a meeting with Jimmy Iovine and the label heads about a week ago, and they gave me the green light to pick a date when I want. The album is so classy, that I can’t sell it short with any single man. I wanna come with the right song, and make sure it’s a song that’s classic and iconic, and then we’ll know.” (Complex)

The rapper previously blamed the process of creating an album and his personal life for the project’s delay.

“There’s a lot more that goes into it than just putting a burn in the CD, throwing it in the package, and putting it in Best Buy,” he explained. “I’ve been touring, I had a daughter, the label politics, the timing, other people having to drop, picking the right single… There’s a lot of things that go into a major distributed album and the timing hasn’t been right yet.” (Rap-Up)
