The Game Says He’s Joining Cash Money After Interscope Deal Ends
If Cash Money is an army, then Birdman is a five-star recruiter. The June 2011 XXL cover star recently lured Bow Wow to the team and mined Miami for DJ Khaled and production duo Cool & Dre. Now, it looks like he has his Marc Jacobs-framed eyes set on The Game.
“I talk to Baby everyday,” Game told XXLmag.com.
On an unreleased track from the rapper’s forthcoming album, The R.E.D. Album, “All I Know,” produced by Boi-1da, Chuck Taylor reveals the Cash Money co-CEO’s overtures.
According to Game, who’s recorded a number of tracks in the past with Weezy, he’s been tight with the YMCBM clan since NBA player Baron Davis’s days with the New Orleans Hornets. Davis is the godfather to Game’s son and the rapper said the relationship between himself and Birdman dates back before The Documentary release when the Compton star used to visit the Crescent City.
With only one more album left on his current deal (he’s back on Interscope after being shuffled between the ‘Scope and Geffen during his feud with 50 Cent) following The R.E.D. Album, Game said he expects to reach a new agreement with Cash Money sooner rather than later.
“We been playing with the idea of going over to Cash Money or trying to marry that and Black Wall Street,” he explained. “So, we’ll figure it out before the end of the day. I definitely think that’s where I’ll probably end up. Cause they winning, they want to win and I been winning and want to continue to win.”
Game’s The R.E.D. Album hits stores on August 23. —Jayson Rodriguez
