"The R.E.D. Album is gonna be classic, that's a promise. Executive produced by Dr. Dre and Pharrell. The music is phenomenal.”
Be on the lookout for Game's “phenomenal” release early in the first quarter of next year.
The Game: "I Killed G Unit, I Killed the Brand"

As the news spreads of 50 Cent’s apparent steep sales drop for Before I Self Destruct, former protégé turned rival Game has emerged to take the credit.
In a recent interview with Complex.com to promote his forthcoming R.E.D. Album, the Game pointed to his on wax G Unit feud from 2005-2007 as what began his rivals’ “downfall.”
“It’s just Hip-Hop and I think that he’s more bitter towards me then anyone else he’s had drama with because look what I did to his brand. I killed G Unit,” Game told Complex.com. “I killed the clothes, I killed the brand, I killed Tony Yayo, Banks, and Buck at that time. Like I really fucked up a lot of money for that dude. Not only for him but my label, Jimmy Iovine, who at this point, I’m apologetic to.”
The feud was all but finished record-wise until 50 Cent recently aimed a few bars at Game on “So Disrespectful.”
Along with the lyrical taunts (“Game you’ll never be my equal…I’m in a tax bracket you’re never gone see/When you cross me”), the Queens mogul has rebuffed any attempt to reconcile, despite mentor Dr. Dre and Game making amends.
Regarding 50’s stance, the Compton emcee feels the rivalry has run its course and does not make any sense business-wise.
“Me and his beef is old at this point. It’s pure comedy for me at this point. When he says something, I laugh. If I shoot a shot back it’s just a joke at this point,” The Game explained. “Nobody is going to kill each other. Nobody is gonna beat each other’s ass. I’m not gonna do none of that. So we might as well get along. We exist in Hip-Hop…We’re not fucking WWE wrestlers, we’re not boxers man, it’s just Hip-Hop. It’s just make music or don’t make music. It’s not a gang war, like he’s not a Crip and I’m a Blood, and this ain’t fucking ‘85, and I’m not gonna ride through his hood and do a drive by, like it’s not that serious.”
Instead of challenging Jay-Z in the midst of his Before I Self Destruct promotion, The Game advised 50 could switch up his tactics and garner more attention with a reunion project.
“If we said tomorrow Game and 50 are coming out with an album, you know how many motherfucking antennas would go up? We could still sell a million records just off promoting it alone,” he offered. “I mean, I understand the business aspect of it. I understand that you know, he’s got a big ego. I’m just not one with it, I don’t have one. I forgive and forget and that’s life. One day you’re alive and the next day you die. So why spend it bitter and mad at the fuckin’ world, man? I don’t understand it.”
With “Baby By Me” as the current single, 50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct is projected to sell 160,000 copies and land in Billboard’s Top 5.
At press time, Game’s The R.E.D. Album is slated for a February 2010 release on Interscope.

The Game To Play Baracus, Fool!
The Game is reportedly in talks to star in his third major film. After hitting up the big screen in Waist Deep (2006) and Street Kings (2008), this time one of the West Coast’s finest is rumored to be in talks to take on the role of “Sgt. Bosco Baracus,” better known as “B.A.” for the upcoming film The A-Team. Scheduled to start shooting in August, the role was made famous by body guard turned actor Mr. T. who made the character an icon after playing him for five years on the 80’s action drama.
The film, version of the classic television show has been in the works for years with several people being attached to play the character including Ving Rhames, Ice Cube, Chicago lyricist Common and mixed martial arts fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. So far actor Liam Neeson is confirmed for the four-man A-Team line-up who’ll play “Col. John “Hannibal” Smith.”
The Game: ‘Rededicated To Hip-Hop’ On The R.E.D. Album’
The Game’s new LP, The R.E.D. Album, was not inspired by him being a Blood. It’s not a clever play on words or some type of tip of the fitted cap to Jay-Z’s Black Album. Nah, the Compton native’s CD is all about him restarting his engine.the_game_rapper
“The R.E.D. Album, people think the R.E.D. stands for gangbanging. I am what I am. … R.E.D. — that’s rededicated. Rededicated to hip-hop … to my hood, Compton. Rededicated to my family, rededicated to everything.”
And yes, that rededication means the end of Game’s retirement talk. He says the album will be out in ‘09 and he’s already been in the studio with Timbaland, J.R. Rotem, Drumma Boy and former Aftermath producer Mike Lynn. Cool and Dre are scheduled to come in on the album and Game also hopes to track Kanye West down for beats.
“The R.E.D. Album is about to be serious, man,” he promised. “It’s a step up. The R.E.D. Album, it’s a little soulful, I gotta say. Still gangsta — we getting it in. I’m keeping everything on wraps right now.
“This album … it’s gonna be different,” he added. “I was wondering to myself how I’m gonna elevate myself and even change the field. Three albums … what do you talk about after three albums? I ain’t selling crack and gangbanging and shooting sh– up. My beefs have been down-low. So what do you really talk about? I just wanna rap man. I just wanna do music. Whatever it turns out to be, it turns out to be. Long as every song has that collective feel — they gel — then we good. I’m just gonna rap this time.”
