While Game’s ‘The R.E.D. Album’ was being considered a major thing itself, the attachment of Dr. Dre’s name to it, develops the potential of it turning into a headlining event. As if it wasn’t enough, the rapper out of Compton added Pharrell Williams to the production lineup and that explains why he is so excited in the buildup to his fourth studio album’s August 23 release.
In a quick word with MTV News on the shoot of his ‘Pot Of Gold’, Game said, “This album is the most incredible album of my career. First, I’m back with Dr. Dre, which is a bonus and dope for me. Second, executive-produced by Pharrell, co-executive-produced by myself and Mars.”
The rest of the production team is quite impressive as well, with names such as Hit-Boy, Lex Luger, Cool & Dre and Maestro. And to change the flavor a bit, Game also invited artists like pop singer Nelly Furtado, rap ace Lil’ Wayne and veteran Busta Rhymes for features on R.E.D. Game’s first album ‘The Documentary’ was powered by Dre, but after his public feud with Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment-signee 50 Cent, the legendary beatsmith and Game went their separate ways and no further musical collaborations took place between the two parties until now.
However, in 2009, pictures of Game, Dre and Snoop Dogg working in the studios surfaced on the internet, leading to speculation that the two parties may have reconciled their differences, which later turned out to be true. Dre on The R.E.D. Album looks like a sure thing, but there are still question marks on the Detox-star’s level of involvement. Will he be doing full verses or just the hook? All will be answered on August 23, when the new disc hit the stores.
