The Game to release a REDedication to rap!

American rapper and West Coast hip hop artist, Game (formerly known as The Game,) is all set to release his next album titled R.E.D. which, after many delays, will finally release this August! The outspoken artist even had time to give to give Urban Asian a little shout out!

With hit album after hit album releasing and tons of chart busting singles, the talented artist is known just as much for his street bangers to his radio-friendly pop singles. Known to work with only A-list producers, Game’s family of “board members” came in droves: J.R. Rotem, Cool & Dre, Boi-1da, Timbaland, Drumma Boy, Jay Electronica and of course long-time collaborator Kanye West, all gave hints that they were apart of  Game’s fourth project, the “R.E.D.” album.

Even emcees like Nas, Busta Rhymes, Jim Jones, Jadakiss and Fabolous – Game’s NY family – all reportedly contributed to the “R.E.D.” album as well. To quiet the rumors and eliminate any uncertainty, Game’s longtime LA gangsta rap “uncle” Snoop Dogg posted a picture of himself, Game and Dr. Dre in the studio prior to a R.E.D/Detox recording session. This sealed the deal! The R.E.D. Album was official when the Dogg-father leaked it.

And now, mega producers Cool and Dre and DJ Premiere had joined R&B artists like Chris Brown, Drake and Nelly Furtado, Game’s music-life mentors Dr. Dre, Snoop and Busta Rhymes and new era rap stars Kendrick Lamar, Tyler the Creator in the R.E.D. Album’s mix of high profile features!

R.E.D. is one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year! Be sure to catch it this August 23rd!
