Game’s R.E.D. Album Coming in August

After a sit-down with his label, Game says that his long-delayed fourth album, The R.E.D. Album, will see a late August release.

“I had a meeting with [Interscope head] Jimmy Iovine last week, and he told me the album was slated for the end of the summer, and it will not be pushed back any more than that,” The Game told Billboard. “So we’re looking towards late August.”

In the meantime, Game will release the video for the Lil Wayne collabo “Red Nation” next week. He described the downtown Los Angeles video shoot as “pandemonium.”

“It’s like ‘Mad Max’ mixed with Nas’ ‘One Mic’ video, where there’s riots going on in the background,” said Game. “We did this thing where I’m on top of a burning car rapping, and we had some flares and a lot of fire, fireworks and all of that. It’s definitely the most fun video I’ve ever shot, and I think it’ll be the best video I’ve ever shot to date.”

Game’s last official release was 2008’s LAX. In January, he released the 29-track mixtape “Purp & Patron.” —Lauren Carter

    Rappers still don’t get it. They keep bigging up their production and guest apperances and then they wonder why their album sales are the lowest in all of music. I know it has to do with the demographic they are targeting but at the same time rappers have no beef with letting anyone know their albums aren’t worth anything without super producers working on it and guest appearances. The fact that rappers all want to work with the same people is both comical and sad at the same time.

    I tip my hat to the people who are still trying to be some what original in hip hop and I hope people know that the guys and girls with true talent don’t have their album pushed back for years and years. Its always those who are hiding behind tons of samples, guest appearances, and super producers; who complain about ‘label politics’.

    Game is one of the best artists out right now in my opinion but he shoulda released this a long time ago if he actually had 90% of the songs done and he shoulda made another album by now, said “fuck you jimmy ivene” and forgot about all these terrible singles he keeps making…Justin Timberlake??? that would actually be ‘REDedicated’… thats what hip hop is missing these days its, too much about the money. back in the 80s and early 90s they didn’t have to worry about getting 90% of their sales ripped off by the internet so they just made good music bc record labels weren’t shit. Now you have good rappers like game all caught up in trying to satisfy some fucking idiot named Jimmy Ivene
