West Coast rapper Game has reached for new heights, as he claims that his upcoming R.E.D. Album is far better than past efforts including his multi-platinum selling 2005 debut, The Documentary.
Hyped about enlisting Dr. Dre and Pharrell Williams‘ production on the LP, Game said fans can anticipate the Doc returning to his rapping ways.
“This album is the most incredible album of my career,” Game promised in an interview. “First, I’m back with Dr. Dre, which is a bonus and dope for me. Second, executive-produced by Pharrell, co-executive-produced by myself and Mars…And Dre’s rapping on the album.” (MTV)
A few weeks ago, Game revealed a Lupe Fiasco collaboration called “Skate On”.
“Lupe skates and I thought it would be cool to kind of take that and make it reverse psychology,” Game tells Rap-Up TV. “You know when some bullshit’s about to jump off and somebody’s like, ‘Yo, I think we better skate?’ It’s kinda like that. … Lupe kicks this 20-bar verse that’s like crazy.” (Rap-Up TV)
In early June, Game discussed what guest appearances fans could expect to hear on the forthcoming project.
“The album changes, the dates change, the climate changes,Interscope changed and went in another direction for a minute and then they come back,” Game explained in an interview. “It’s just the business; sh*t gets pushed back. Either wait for it or don’t buy it. I don’t give a f*ck. I never beg anybody to buy my albums…I think the people will appreciate the collaborations. Dr. Dre is actually rapping on this album. This is the first album that I’ve ever dropped where I have Dr. Dre’s voice actually on the album. Features range from Snoop Dogg to Pharrell to Wiz [Khalifa] to Trey Songz to Chris Brown, and Drake’s on the album. I got a good cast of all-stars.” (VIBE)
Last month, Game announced the latest release date following a conversation with Interscope Records CEO Jimmy Iovine.
“#alliwantis for my fans to know that the R.E.D. album will be in-stores AUGUST 23rd !!! Thanks for the continuous love & support. #REDnation,” he tweeted Wednesday (May 17).
“Just got off a conference call with Jimmy Iovine & @interscope . Aug 23rd is the release date & it’s like a FAT GIRL….. It won’t move !” (Game’s Twitter)
Game’s R.E.D. Album is slated to drop Tuesday, August 23rd.
