Game recently discussed re-linking with his former Aftermath boss, Dr. Dre, and detailed how their chemistry has been since teaming up to put together The R.E.D. Album.
According to the Black Wall Street leader, his new album will pay homage to his loyal fans and family.
“R.E.D., I’m just painting the whole world red,” Game promised in an interview with DJ Green Lantern. “It’s basically the re-dedication, it’s my most hood and street album since The Documentary so it’s basically being rededicated to my fans, my family, my kids, my block, my hood. Like, hip-hop, the R.E.D. Album is gonna be crazy. I’m back in with Dre everyday going hard in the studio doing the little stuff, working on Detox with him and he’s working on The R.E.D. Album with me. It’s just, we got a good feeling out here…I did my last two albums without Dre and even though, I just did it on my own man. When I talked to him, he [was like] I’ve been doing a good job and he took a listen and I did my thing. I learned well, my time at Aftermath was spent well, so getting back in, that old feeling came back. The chemistry is crazy, I got a lot of love for that dude and that’s why I never really disrespected him or really went at Aftermath, I only did what I had to do to survive man, but I got love for dude and we back in grindin’ man.” (That’s Hip Hop)
Continuing to keep fans updated via Twitter, Game recently revealed the project’s current release date.

He also discussed the album’s overall feel and initial anticipation to drop it in late December.
“It’s just Game now, I took the t-h-e off, you know what I’m saying,” Game confirmed in an interview. “I’m just coastin’ through, day-by-day, somebody got a script, I’ma read it, if it fits me, hopefully I’ll get it. I’m just day-by-day right now. I’m strictly on the color red, I ain’t going no further than that, it’s gonna be the craziest album out of all four of ’em and it’s the most hood album…You know how we do it under the Aftermath umbrella, it be on the low, but it will be in stores December 8th and that’s how we gonna roll with it. We’re putting out two singles next week…” (Hip Hollywood)
Despite Game’s Aftermath ties, 50 Cent recently said the former G-Unit member and Young Buck were still signed to his label.
“Hot Rod and Spider Loc are still technically signed to G-Unit Records,” Fif said in an interview. “Buck is still signed to G-Unit Records, hopefully he can come up with a record. If he can come up with a song, we can get my money back, you know what I’m saying? I hope he can come up with something right quick. I’m looking forward to that check at least. They gotta pay me not to put the [G-Unit] logo on it.” (This Is 50)
