Recently, Game said there was ample interest in how his next LP would be released.
“Recently, a free agent,” Game said in an interview. “I was signed to Interscope for my last five albums which, of course, are all platinum and I’ve been taking a lot of meetings and on a lot of conference calls about my next move and I just – I haven’t narrowed it down yet.” (“Larry King Now”)
