Game's R.E.D. Album Set for August 23rd Release
Guest appearances include Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Pharrell Williams, DJ Premier, Lil Wayne, Drake, Rick Ross, Chris Brown, Nelly Furtado, Tyler the Creator, Kendrick Lamar and more
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 22, 2011 -- Multi-platinum Grammy nominated artist Game delivers a hit single in "Pot of Gold," the official lead single from his highly anticipated fourth studio project The R.E.D. Album, available August 23rd. Featuring R&B singer Chris Brown, "Pot of Gold" charted on Billboard, soared at urban radio and the music video, shot on location in downtown Los Angeles, reached more than 2 million views just days after its VEVO debut. The album is executive produced by Pharrell Williams and co-executive produced by Game and super producer Mars of 1500 or Nothin'.
R.E.D. features production from legendary producers Dr. Dre and DJ Premier and features from established south region stunners Big Boi, Young Jeezy and Rick Ross that compliment Game's west coast collaborations with Snoop Dogg, E-40 and scorching newcomers Kendrick Lamar and Odd Future's Tyler the Creator. Drake and singer Nelly Furtado round out the heavy hitting features. The Compton-bred MC delivers the type of Hip-Hop unification album we have come to expect in a classic.
Fans have waited eagerly for a Game and Dr. Dre reunification in the studio. The R.E.D. Album provides "Drug Test," produced by Game's Compton neighbor, a possible contender for the album's second single, showcases Game straight west coastin' alongside his gangsta' rap accomplices Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, on a club banger which reminds listeners of the three G's collective California chemistry.
"Red Nation" which featured long time collaborator Lil Wayne effectively garnered Game a recent viral buzz. The "Red Nation" music video made its VEVO debut after being banned from BET and MTV networks and went on to garner more than 8.2 million views online. MTV has since included the music video in rotation due to its high demand.
Ever the self-promoter, Game has flooded the blogosphere and download domain with a succession of DJ Skee hosted mixtapes including "The R.E.D. Room," "Purp and Patron," "Purp and Patron 2: The Hangover," and "Hoodmorning (no typo): Candy Coronas."
Game achieved mainstream success with his 2x platinum debut "The Documentary." Released on Aftermath/G-Unit/Interscope Records in 2005, the album boasted two chart-topping singles in "Hate it or Love it" and "Dreams" en route to a #1 debut and opening week sales of 586,000 copies. Game followed with the platinum selling "Doctor's Advocate" in 2006 under his own supervision, with the hit singles "Wouldn't Get Far" and "One Blood" making his second album to debut #1, a Hip Hop classic. In 2008, Game released "L.A.X." The album was certified Gold and delivered the hits "My Life" featuring Lil Wayne, "Dope Boys" featuring Travis Barker, and "Game's Pain" featuring Keyshia Cole.
