Game's 'R.E.D.' To Be Produced By Dr. Dre & Pharrell

For stans of team Game eagerly anticipating R.E.D. season, the delay may very well be worth the wait. As previously reported, Games' R.E.D. album was originally scheduled to be released December 8 but has since been pushed back to an early February release.

Now Hurricane Game is releasing details on the forthcoming release via his @IHateGame twitter. Game tweeted about R.E.D. confirming that he would have an all-star production line up of Dr. Dre and Pharrell. He broke the news to his 85,000 plus followers saying,

"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.

50 Cent Speaks About Detox

Taken from Rapbasement.com:
50 Cent recently talked about his studio relationship with Dr Dre and what he has done for Dre's highly delayed and upcoming "Detox" album. According to the G-Unit leader, Dr Dre used him for a portion of his recording process on the album back in 2007. "I don't even know what's going on with the Detox," Fif admitted. "The last [time] I spoke to Dre, he was actually not mixing my records because he was working on The Detox and then we finally got him to mix the records and you know, I think he's back in here producing records for it but I haven't heard pretty much I think it was five or six songs that he actually recorded but that was a long time ago. He probably has a lot more now but I've been recording for The Detox two years ago."

Detox Track! Dre featuring Nas & TI

Seasoned fans know better by now than to get too excited when material that's destined to appear on Dr. Dre's Detox leaks. No matter how dope a track may sound, there's no guarantee that it'll really end up on the good doctor's infinitely delayed album. Indeed, the very fact that you're hearing a Detox demo may make it less likely that that song will ever see the light of day: Rumour has it Dre has scrapped months of studio work in frustration at seeing snippets leak to the public in unfinished form. So take all that as a word of caution before listening to "Topless," the totally awesome alleged Detox demo featuring T.I. and Nas that leaked yesterday. (Check it out below; some NSFW language.)

Here's one glaring hint that "Topless" is an incomplete demo: Dr. Dre doesn't actually rap on it. Instead, the song opens with T.I. delivering a sick verse that's evidently meant to come out of Dre's mouth. ("Look, Eazy, ain't a damn thing changed, I promise/Still live like we did back on Straight Outta Compton...") It's widely known that Dr. Dre gets the best lyricists in the game to draft verses for him -- check how he flowed exactly like Eminem on "Forgot About Dre," or like credited co-writer Jay-Z on "Still D.R.E." How cool is it to hear T.I. demonstrating his ghost-writing contribution first-hand? Nas' guest verse, on the other hand, seems intended to be rapped by Nas as-is, and it's another winner, packed with the kind of intricate imagery that only God's Son can pull off.

And the beat? Well, it's one of the best things Dre's done in years, all dusty piano keys and boom-bap drums. Those sounds have more in common with the golden age of New York hip-hop than with the glossy synth melodrama of most post-2001 Dre productions -- a welcome evolution for an NY head like yours truly. But like I said, I'm going to cut myself off before I get too psyched about this track, only to be disappointed when a completed version never materializes. How about you?

Death Row Records Up For Auction

Court documents obtained by TMZ.com show that infamous former Death Row Records owner Suge Knight is finally being forced to auction the label off to the highest bidder.

The documents state that "all of the recorded music business assets of the estate, along with substantially all of the music publishing business assets of ... Marion 'Suge' Knight" will be up for grabs on June 24.

With a minimum starting bid of $24 million, the auction winner will walk away with works by the likes of Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and the Dogg Pound. Bids must be received by June 10.

Knight's control over the label slipped in a 2006 court ruling that awarded $107 million to a couple that claimed to have fronted the start-up money for Death Row.

The sale of Death Row records might have taken place already, but has been stalled by lawsuits from Dr. Dre and Afeni Shakur, who questioned rights to Dre's solo début, The Chronic, and several of Tupac's recordings.
