Chuck Taylor says that his kids and international tours kept him from putting in quality studio time.
Game has spent nearly three years working on his oft-delayed project The R.E.D. Album, which he finally finished just last week. Before the LP drops on August 23rd, the Compton, California native spoke with MTV News’ Sway Calloway on RapFix Live to discuss details surrounding the album, most notably revealing that Dr. Dre narrates the entire offering.
“It’s narrated by Dr. Dre, the entire album. So it’s real movie-ish man. It’s going to be crazy,” he said.
Naming the Hit-Boy-produced “Good, Bad & The Ugly” as his favorite track on the LP, Chuck Taylor explained that a few factors kept him from releasing the album sooner, including trying to raise three children while juggling international tours.
“You know, me, I’m probably a little bit different than other artists. I don’t know if they had fatherhood or had kids, but I’m really particular about myself and where I’m at in my children’s lives. There’s three of them - two in the same home with me, and one that’s living with his mom,” he said. “And then just touring. So when I go out on the road for four to six months, touring over in Australia, Europe, Japan, Africa, that slowed me down, too. Not everyone got a high-tech studio, so I’m just not comfortable recording in low budget joints.”
