The Game Plans Weekly Mixtape Series

Although he’s been noticeably absent from the spotlight for a while, West Coast mainstay The Game is plotting a return to the hip-hop scene and he promises to hit the streets with some brand new material real soon.

In an interview with MTV News the Doctor’s Advocate revealed his plans to deliver a weekly mixtape series in the coming weeks. “This summer, it ain’t a nigga that’s gonna out-mixtape me,” he said. “I’m dropping a mixtape every week. It ain’t gonna be like no bullshit mixtape shit. I’m dropping mixtapes that sound better than people’s albums.”

Chuck Taylor, who is currently working on his new studio album The R.E.D., already has a title for his introductory tape in the series. “The first one is gonna be the Bloody Thumb with the red thumbprint on the front.”

The R.E.D., Game’s follow up disc to 2008’s L.A.X., will feature production from Miami hitmakers Cool & Dre. The duo provided the Compton rapper with one of his biggest hits to date, “Hate It Or Love It” from his debut, The Documentary.

As of press time there is no release date for Bloody Thumb or The R.E.D. – Max G

    Intersting…..I hope he can do all this without mentioning Dr.Dre or 50 Cent.

    I’ll be looking out for those mixtapes because Game is a dope rapper.

  • allhiphop>xxlmag

    i like Game but i think this is a bad move
    he already ran out of shit to talk about (gangbangin, 50, Dre) and LAX sucked concept wise (except Never Let You Go)
    still Game always surprises me
    i say hes gonna have a lot of collabos with Young Buck

  • $ykotic

    I’ma go out on a limb here.

    Game held down the west when no one else was buzzing. Bi-polar or crying. This dude does the damn thing.

  • BeerGangsta

    Game will teach you gay rapping bastard how 2 rap. The man Spit 300 bars. How many rappers have you seen do that. Killed G-UNOT! I told you Fuckers anything got to do with the West Coast count me in. Game is weird at times. He do shit and realize that it was stupid. When it comes to Rapping he is doing a good job.

        Lol @ $yk.

        Thanks for translation.

        I stopped trying awhile ago.

  • dark vanilla

    Hopefully he’ll win mixtape artist of the year for this. His mixtapes are 10x better than any mixtape Weezy put out.

  • magnum

    game dont lie, bang along and champion are straight bangers…

  • http://myspace.com/federalranga Federal Ranga

    What up, $yk? We in here…

    Game’s a dope rapper and if he gets his shit together I’ll check out all his mixtapes and probably give R.E.D. a look.

  • Coopd509

    Game is the most underrated MC! The nigga has sold something like 5 million records and gets no respect! LAX was a top 5 album last year…anything he puts out is Dope! I don’t give a fuck if he name drops on every song cuz his lyrics are still better then Weezy, Yeezy, and Jeezy!! He single handedly is keeping the West Coast relevant…him and Jay Rock(that’s my Nigga!)

    • Cashkidd

      Dont forget Nipsey!

    • Federal Ranga

      Yeah, he did… but you gotta admit, when the Machine pulled it’s support plug… just saying, no hate…

  • Trenton Watts

    BUTTERFLY SERIES CONTINUES. THIS NIGGA IS TOO EMOTIONAL 4 ME, AND IN BALTIMORE THAT SHIT WILL GET YOU KILLED..

  • Real Talk

    Game is a ill rapper holding it down… im suprised nun u mutha fuckas are hating big up nigga

  • latino heat

    i thought L.A.X. was his last album then he was retiring. why do rappers even bother saying that? we already know there lying. also, what is the obsession with rappers giving away a bunch of free mixtapes now. Wayne fucked the game up when he opened that door.

  • Cashkidd

    I think this is a bad idea I think he should drop less mixtapes and focus on quality instead of quantity.

  • http://yahoo.com drop1

    mixtapes are fucking garbage. garbage garbage garbage. this dude aint beefn’ wit nobody so wtf he gna be talkn’bout? 50? build a bridge and get over it “gangsta”

  • nickelnueve

    this is a stupid idea. game has good songs every once in a while but there is such thing as too much exposure. by the time his album comes out everybody is already gonna be sick of dude. now dropping a song a week like crooked I, that is a little better. can build a nice buzz, but this is too much. plus like somebody already said game has nothing to talk about as it is….this wont help. as the years go by i become less and less impressed with what this guy is doing. WEST Coast is in trouble these days even more then new york imo. Jay Rock is dope though

    @drop1

    Just shut the fuck up. Quit crying. You need a diaper change? Blankie? Pacifier? Shut theee fuck up

    I cosign whoever said he should focus on a quality album instead of all those mixtapes. Technically, the vehicle that the mixtape is isn’t needed by him right now. He’s more/less established, he’s made his noise & created his lane. He’s already “showed”, now it’s time to “prove” (longevity-wise).

    If he was a stylish, slick-talking, battle rapper, then it might be kind of ill (like Crook), but he’s not. He a gangsta rapper, who wanted to show his level of hip hop education.

    I say, stick to the formula that got him here. I don’t need anymore CRT’s. I need some well thought-out albums.

  • Emperor Doom

    The Game is the dopest rapper out for quite some time. He’s personally one of my favorites.

    The only thing I could do a little less of is name dropping and tone down the “like” style of rapping (ex: Something something something LIKE something something something. Every rapper does it, but not to the excess Game does)

  • gkid12345

    Wow ever since Wayne put out a high quantity of trash mix-tapes rappers think that’s the key to blowing up. It was good when G-unit did it because they had a lot of quality but come on man

  • fireforreal

    I thinks the Game is a dopr rapper but Rappers always talk about albums,mixtapes,collabo’s that never happen then blaime it on the lable or say niggas ain’t ready it’s over there heads lol The game was suppose to release u know what it is vol 5 and 6 last summer what happen since then ?

  • http://yahoo.com Compton kidd

    to trenton watts, butterfly,dragonfly,sugar sweet fly,…you talk down on a nigga like dat n compton n find yo ass missin. u betta google dat shit cuz, we go harder den baltimor all day!!!

  • Outlaw

    If the Game is talking about 50 and Dre in his songs, who cares? coz as for 50, 50 cent deserves a forever diss.. that nigga a**. Drop the albums Drop the mixtapes we looking forward to them

  • Trenton Watts

    You won’t do shit you bitch ass compton kid. Your no G just another Maaaaaaaaaad Blogger lol ! go home and jerk off to the Game’s new mixtape Bitch nigga

    i always liked The Game music, but when i heard that nigga verse on Make The World Go Round w/ NaS & C.Breezy…whoa! he merked dat verse. but im a southern hip hop type nigga, so if the beat & knockin or banging or something shit kinda hard to pay attention.

  • Q! tha Great!

    The Game is way underated and right now the West need some exposure! ain’t nobody really shining from the West except Crooked I and he still not shining like he should be. The Game droppin tapes every week is a good look plus the nigga can ryme and flow so it will be interesting to see I just hope dude don’t get burned out by the end of the summer and then R.E.D ends up suffering or gettignpushed back until next year.

    Where You at West Coast !!! this game is wide open for the taking!! take the Crown back!

  • Dizz…

    The Game was big wit the documentary and when the beef wit 50 and the unit was poppin, but now he need to focus on quality. Bang Along is straight fire! need more music to that quality cause the west aint shinin right now, Crooked I doing his thing Jay Rock and Nipssy put some ill shit out but the hottest artist from the WEST right now hands down to Ya Boy! Check out his last mixtape Kush 2009. ya its all Dre Beats but, think of any other rapper that would sit there and kill every fuckin beat on there! Ya Boy hands down keepin the west up right now, Bring back the Hyphy Movement, Mistah FAB need to start goin dumb again gettin on that new york shit and southern shit, Yukmouth, Messy Marv, Pack, Federation, San Quinn, Keak Da Sneak, WHERE THE FUCK YOU AT???

    and E-40 needa switch his style back, go back to the Hyphy movement, go back to the Sprinkle Me Days even the Tell me When to go!! shit you sold out!!! BRING THE HYPHY MOVEMENT AND THE WEST COAST GANGBANG’N MUSIC BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RIP to MAC DRE! WEST WEST Ya’ll!!!
