Following the release of L.A.X., Game solidified his position among the top of the rap game and he said he would never mention Dr. Dre again. Game announced that he had signed with Interscope Records, but he was not working with Dr. Dre. The second half of 2009 consisted of him recording The R.E.D. Album. A considerable amount of buzz was building around Game and the album and Dr. Dre soon stepped in.
Through Snoop Dogg, the two were able to reunite. Their collaboration on Detox led to Dr. Dre signing him back to Aftermath Entertainment. Because Game was again on his label, Dre became the executive producer of The R.E.D. Album. Dr. Dre promised Game that he would handle the production on the album. This led to Game scrapping what he had in favor of recording an entirely new album.
However, as Dr. Dre soon found himself involved in other projects, he brought Pharrell in to help produce the album. Game grew so fond of Pharrell that he got the Star Trak logo tattooed on the top of his head. With that, Game announced that he was now signed to Pharrell’s label. He said that Dr. Dre and Pharrell would both serve as executive producers on the album. In the time since then, not much information has been given about the album.
For the first time in months, Game has decided to speak on The R.E.D. Album and he has confirmed Pharrell as an executive producer on the album. Despite previously naming Dr. Dre as the other executive producer, Game says that he does not know what Dr. Dre’s role on the album will be. Still, Game is signed to Aftermath Entertainment and he has acknowledged that Dre is involved with the album.
The R.E.D. Album is set for release on June 15, 2010 on Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records.
