Game to sign with Star Trak, not Aftermath

12 Dec

Game shocked the hip hop world for a second time when he reunited with Dr. Dre in October. With the help of Snoop Dogg, Game was recruited to record with Dre on Detox. Immediately after the recording session, Game announced that he was back on Aftermath.

After the feud with 50 Cent, Game left the entire Interscope label in favor of sister label, Geffen Records. In 2006, he signed a three-album deal with the label. The biggest-selling rapper for the entire label group is 50 Cent, but he announced that he would leave after the release of Before I Self Destruct.

Behind 50 Cent, Game is the biggest-selling rapper for the entire label group. While the aim of the company is to have all of their labels operating at their peak, the head of the company is Jimmy Iovine, the founder of Interscope Records. After the sales of his 2008 album, LAX, he decided to move Game back to Interscope to replace 50 Cent.

Back in July, Game revealed that he had returned to Interscope Records. In October, he announced that he had returned to Aftermath Entertainment. Dr. Dre had spoken about his collaboration with Game, but he never said that he had re-signed him. Later, 50 Cent revealed that he was still under contract with G-Unit Records, but that was never confirmed.

Game’s first album back with Interscope Records was supposed to be released on December 8, 2009. He had completed the album before the end of October, but Dr. Dre wanted to work with him on it. Because of that, his entire album was scrapped and he went to work with Dr. Dre. Only weeks ago, it was revealed that Pharrell will also be working on the album.

Since they have been in the studio together, Game and Pharrell have really hit it off. Because of that, Game has decided to sign with Pharrell’s Star Trak Entertainment as opposed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label, which is still home to 50 Cent. To get the people ready for the union of Game and Pharrell, Game got a tattoo of the Star Trak logo on his head.

He is expected to sign with Star Trak sometime next month, before the release of this album, The R.E.D. Album. Game plans to release this album on February 16, 2010 on Black Wall Street, Star Trak, and Interscope Records. To fulfill his contractual duties with Geffen Records, Game will record another album, called Diary of Compton that Geffen will release sometime late in 2010.
