Game Acknowledges "Tha Carter IV," But Declares "R.E.D." "Album Of The Year"
Exclusive: Game politely points out that "R.E.D." will be the most remembered LP from 2011.
Last week, HipHopDX spoke with Compton, California's Game about his sneak attack leak on Friday afternoon of "Uncle Otis" . While speaking to DX, Game was also asked about a less controversial recent song, "Pot of Gold" featuring longtime friend and collaborator, Chris Brown. "That record, that's my 'Dreams,' that's my 'Hate It Or Love It,' that's my 'My Life' for this [R.E.D. album]. It's a good record," explained Game, tracking back through singles on his previous three solo works. "Chris Brown came through and did everything that I thought he would do, and more."
The video for "Pot of Gold" released earlier this week.
Asked greater detail about his forthcoming fourth solo album, R.E.D., Game declared, "The R.E.D. album, if I can say [it] - pardon Tha Carter IV; [Lil Wayne] is my nigga and I can't wait to hear that, cop it and then check it, but the R.E.D. album is gonna be album of the year." Game respectfully acknowledged his longtime friend and collaborator's upcoming album in his statement. Lil Wayne is even an expected guest on R.E.D., as he also appeared on 2008's LAX. Game continued, "I gotta say it. I've been working on it so long, and I have anybody who's anybody on it - major players that are contributing. Shit's gonna be crazy."
