Snoop Dogg confirms Game/Dre Reconciliation

11 Oct

Snoop DoggLong before the album is even set to release, Dr. Dre’s Detox has taken a wild turn of events. Since he first began working on this album, so much has happened in his career.

Among the most notable was his participation in the rise of 50 Cent and G-Unit. He produced most of their records, along with Eminem and helped them take over the rap game.

Not too many people know that The Game was signed to Aftermath Entertainment only months before 50 Cent. However, 50’s story and his feud with Ja Rule was more interesting than the guy from Compton.

Not to leave his protege out, Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine had the idea of transferring The Game to G-Unit, making him a member of the group. On paper, the idea was great. Despite their personal relationship, The Game and 50 Cent had great chemistry, musically.

The Game released his debut album in 2005 and the album spawned top five singles and sold five million copies. Along the way, it added to Dr. Dre’s record of success, built 50 Cent’s, and made The Game into a hip hop star. The only problem was the fact that he and 50 Cent were not getting along.

In the end, The Game ended up leaving G-Unit and Aftermath after Dr. Dre sided with 50 Cent. It is something that has had Game messed up ever since. On his two albums recorded without Dre, he pleads for his forgiveness.

By the way that The Game mentions the situation, one would think that it happened only months ago. The truth is, the whole big feud happened over five years ago. It had been that long since Game and Dr. Dre had even been in the same room.

However, last week a photo surfaced on Twitter of Snoop Dogg, The Game, and Dr. Dre. On the message, The Game hinted towards working with Dr. Dre on Detox. Some tried to say that the picture was a fake, but Snoop Dogg confirmed that the picture was real and it was Dre’s idea to take it.

Snoop even explained how the whole reunion came to be. He said that Dr. Dre was working with him and they played some beats that seemed like they would be perfect for The Game. From there, Dre asked Snoop to call him up and ask him to come over.

Expectantly, The Game rushed over and they all began working on music together as if nothing had changed. It felt like it had only been days since the whole situation went down instead of five years. Snoop Dogg confirmed that The Game will be on Detox.

While The Game will be on Detox, it is still unknown if Dr. Dre will be involved with Game’s project, The R.E.D. Album. Snoop Dogg’s next album, Malice n Wonderland, will be released on December 8, The Game’s R.E.D. will be released sometime in December, also, while Detox is currently set for release in 2010.

All of these albums will be released on Interscope Records.
