West Coast rapper Game recently updated fans on his highly-anticipated The Documentary 2 album and revealed how much it impressed longtime mentor Dr. Dre.
According to the former G-Unit member, Dre called his album the best hip-hop project in the past few years.
Barring any setbacks, Game’s studio release will arrive later this summer.
“Next album is coming August,” Game revealed in an interview. “The Documentary 2, the follow-up from the first album. It’s going to be classic – shout-out to all the producers that helped me – Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Alchemist, DJ Pooh, Scott Storch.” (Power 98 FM)
Game previously hinted at plans to release the album in June.
“I feel like I could have released it after The Documentary one but sometimes, you know how they say sometimes things happen for a reason, ten years later, it seems perfectly fine. It’s my sixth album, my sixth solo album, I think that the tenth anniversary is huge and why not put it out – the actual Documentary 2 is going to drop on my son’s birthday June 30th.” (Revolt TV)
Recently, the rap star said his new album would feature high-profile hitmakers including Dre.
“It’s on the way, I’m about 90 percent [done],” Game revealed in an interview about his upcoming new album. “I want [Dr.] Dre to get back from his vacation on his yacht. … You can expect the Kanye’s, Timbaland’s, Swizz Beatz’s, Just Blaze’s, Scott Storch, rare, Scott Storch. I’ll get with Dre next week when he gets back and wrap it up. … Kanye? You can get a good, solid week out of Ye,” Game added. “We got history” (“The Cruz Show”)
