Game Releases ‘R.E.D. Album’ Artwork; Dr. Dre Raps on Album
We are seeing red over here at PopCrush as the rapper Game unveiled the cover art to his fourth studio effort, 'The R.E.D. Album.' The blood-red covered artwork features the Compton, Calif., rapper glaring into the camera with his index finger partially covering his left eye.
There will be plenty of surprises waiting for rap fans when they finally cop Game's album, due Aug. 24. Among them will be a reunion with his mentor, veteran rap producer Dr. Dre.
The two have been estranged for several years since his 2005 debut 'The Documentary,' followed by his long-standing feud with 50 Cent, who is also signed to Dre's label Aftermath.
Game tells MTV News: "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, [it's] executive-produced by Pharrell, co-executive-produced by myself and [producer] Mars." He also added this one exciting tidbit. "And Dre's rapping on the album."
Game just finished shooting the video for the LP's first single, 'Pot of a Gold' (featuring Chris Brown). We previously reported that producer Mars was robbed at gunpoint while the video was in production. The robber reportedly scored a windfall of $12,000 in cash and some jewelry in the holdup. Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident.
