Maybe he was better off with G-Unit. The Game's latest album upcoming "The R.E.D." has been delayed numerous times on many occasions and still has no set release date (probably hes following in his mentors the great Dr.Dre footsteps), but the California rapper says he isn't faded by the albums ongoing mishaps. In fact, he feels he's still "one of the last artists that really cares about hip-hop, when compared to upcoming artist such as Soulja Boy, Waka Flaka, and so forth and so on. The butterfly tattooed artist continues on saying "I just think that every now and then in hip hop, there's a dead space so we need some substance,I think that I just might be one of the last artists that really cares about hip hop and not rap, not the culture, not poppin' bottles, not the cars, chains, broads, I just actually care about nurturing and giving back to this sort of foundation on which I grew up on, which is real hip-hop. I'm I the only person who find this statement very funny coming from him. While Aftermath/Interscope figures out the album's street date, Game continues to release music via the internet to hold his fans off. He recently released mixtapes "Purp & Patron" and "The Hangover,". "I think that Purp & Patron has done a good job of sort of calming my fans, giving them something that they could just run with," he says. As for "R.E.D.," which stands for the rededication, Game says it's "20 times better than the mixtape. The last year and a half, I've taken my time. R.E.D. is sort of my baby and I want to make sure that I water my seeds and I lay the foundation for R.E.D. with my mixtapes." The album features production from Pharrell, who is executive producer on the set, as well as Dr. Dre. Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, Lupe Fiasco, Snoop Dogg, Robin Thicke, Beanie Sigel, Rick Ross and Jay Electronica make guest appearances so far.
"The 'R.E.D.' album is going to remind everybody of what hip-hop is supposed to be in its prime, the 'R.E.D.' album will be the best album this year hands down. There's nobody putting out an album this year that will even be able to compete with the skill level-- the bar is gonna be set after this album drops. I guarantee it now from start to finish."
well we shall see.
