Game Talks New DJ Drama Mixtape, Ashanti Collabo
In anticipation of his upcoming R.E.D. Album, Game is working on a mixtape with DJ Drama, called Red Everything.
The West Coast MC recently spoke to MTV News about the project. “It’s a bunch of tracks I did specifically for Drama,” Game explained. ‘They’re full songs mixed with a few freestyles. I’m trying to finish up ‘400 Bars’ and get it on there. Ain’t nobody piss me off that much. But even if that ain’t on there, the mixtape is still gonna be crazy.”
In related news, Game recently hinted on twitter that he will be dropping R.E.D. on his former label Aftermath Records. Along with the message “It’s funny how things come full circle,” the rapper also tweeted a picture of himself adorned with four Aftermath chains around his neck.
Game dropped two albums The Doctor’s Advocate and LAX with Geffen since leaving Aftermath in 2006 after his beef with 50 Cent. Neither albums have been as commercially successful as his critically-acclaimed debut The Documentary, under Aftermath.
The West Coast MC has also buried the hatchet with Murder Inc. as well. During the heat, of his battle with G-Unit, Game had beef with Ja Rule, Irv Gotti, and Ashanti but has since announced that he’s cool with them and even invited the songstress to jump on one of the tracks for The R.E.D. Album.
“Hey man, it’s ‘No beef 2010.’ That’s the trending topic on this interview, man,” Game told MTV. “Dre called me and he was like ‘You got any current-day problems with Ashanti?’ I was like, ‘Nah. I ain’t got no probles with Ashanti.” She can sing like a muthafucka and you put her on a hook, it’s automatically radio. So he was like, ‘I’mma have her come down.’”
The R.E.D. Album is currently set for release on March 23. —Brooklyne Gipson
