Game Talks About Knocking Songs Off ‘R.E.D.’, Nelly Furtado & New Album Already


It’s a Friday afternoon in Times Square minutes before rush hour begins. People are bustling through the New York City summer streets, but posted up in the Renaissance Hotel lounge, Jayceon Taylor acts like he doesn’t have a care in the world. The 31-year old emcee is seated among a crew of about 10, messing around with his new Android phone. He’s taking 3D pics of his friends eating buffalo wings and then showing them the photographic proof. “Look at this shit, man,” he says about the noticeable difference in 3D quality. Game doesn’t look like the shit-talking rapper who plots the demise of Lil B while simultaneously seducing Erykah Badu on his fourth studio LP, The R.E.D. Album. Rocking a red Nike basketball Jersey, he smiles like he’s in a boy-band (especially when he’s dissing someone) but stands tall and built like their bodyguard. He doesn’t look crazy at all; he just looks like he’s having a great time making you think he is.

DX: Waiting played into your favor; especially with some of the collaborations you have on the album like Kendrick Lamar and Tyler, The Creator. They might have not been around a few years ago had you put out the album then.
Game: I think about that all the time. I think if we would have went with Justin Timberlake and a Pharrell single, just think of how many people wouldn’t have been on the album. So with that being said, everything that happened with the album, it benefited in my favor at the end of the day because I have the best album, period. From Tyler, the Creator to [Lil] Wayne to Drake to Dr. Dre and Pharrell, I think I’m the only Hip Hop artist that could have featured Dr. Dre and Drake on the same album or Pharrell, Wayne, Tyler, the Creator, Nelly Furtado, Beanie [Sigel], Rick Ross, everyone on the album, Wale, Mario. I put together the best possible album in this climate that I possibly could.

Jakk Frost – What A Thug Like feat Pharrell & Amerie (2007)


Philadelphia rapper and the founder and CEO of Cold World Music Jakk Forst just leaked this unreleased track titled ‘What A Thug Like’ featuring Pharrell and Amerie on the net. So whats the story about this tune, where is it coming from. Most of y’all will say that we’ve heard this before and that the tune sounds like Gwen Stefani’s ‘Candyland’, well indeed. This is actually the original Gwen Stefani version of ‘Candyland’ that didn’t make it on her second studio album ‘The Sweet Escape’, but we’ve only heard the version with the Kill Bill sample mixed by Gwen’s DJ back in 2006 at one of her Fashion Shows.

We all wondered also what happened to Amerie’s Neptunes Studio Session from 2007 of ‘Because I Love It’. So judging by Pharrell’s rapping “Hey Ma, Let Me Show You What A Thug Like”, this could have been given to Amerie but with the title ‘What A Thug Like’ but it didn’t make the final cut, so it went finally to Jakk Frost having still Amerie on the hook, check out both tracks below.
