The Game has announced a new release date for his upcoming fourth studio LP, The R.E.D. Album. After revealing a March date in January, the rapper has now pushed the album to June, just in time for the summer.
The project is now due to hit stores on June 15th.
The album will be executive produced by Game and Pharrell Williams, who jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with the Compton rapper.
“Game is good kid … and I’m excited for the world to hear the many facets of his character,” Pharrell said. “What’s even crazier is that as a fan, I cannot believe I am actually producing songs on the same album as Dr.Dre. Humbling, man …
I owe Game for that one. His album is gonna be a problem.”
Leading off The R.E.D. Album will be the Pharrell-produced street anthem, “It Must Be Me,” a West Coast-influenced trunk rattler that features Game spitting “venomous lyrics reminiscent of an early, I got something to prove, Ice Cube,” says his camp.
Following will be the Justin Timberlake-assisted “Ain’t No Doubt About It,” where both JT and Game sing and rap over the radio perfect beat.
“I never thought I would have the chance to work with Justin, but to come up with a smash like we did, it’s only fitting,” Game asserts.
In addition to working closely with Pharrell on the project, Dr. Dre is back in the mix, leading both his production skills and raps. Game is excited about working with his mentor once again.
“Dre is a hip-hop legend and one of the reasons I’m making music,” said the rapper. “To be working so closely with him again … man, I don’t even have words to describe it.”
“My two favorite producers are helping me with the direction of this album, I couldn’t be in a better position,” he added.
