The GameWe’ve just learned some news about Compton rapper The Game … some small news. The rapper is following Diddy and undergoing a name change. Well, sort of.

He’s been officially known as The Game throughout his career, but now, he’s shortening it, dropping “The” and is now to be known as simply “Game,” reports DubCNN.

As we previously reported, his next solo album — titled The R.E.D. Album — is set for December. However, the date is now December 8th, instead of the 1st, as originally reported.

DubCNN reports that the first street single will be a new track called “Crazy,” featuring Gucci Mane and production by Timbaland.

And the first, official single will be “L.A. Girl,” featuring Chris Brown, with the boards manned by Pharrell.

As far as guests, the album is said to include Akon, Diddy, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross and Beanie Sigel. Production includes Akon, Pollow da Don, Cool & Dre and DJ Khalil.

Stay tuned for further updates.
