Last fall, Game made headlines when he decided to push his new album, The R.E.D. Album, back until 2010. After having his last album, L.A.X., pushed back several times until it was moved from an expected 2007 release to a 2008 release, he vowed to release a new album every year on schedule. But, Game had a solid excuse for pushing his album back because his wish of reuniting with Dr. Dre had finally come true.
Right after the release of L.A.X., Game announced that he was not going to retire. Instead, he began working on his fourth album, The R.E.D. Album. He said that this new album would begin the second phase of his career. On this album, he did not announce production from Dr. Dre. By then, he had realized that their relationship was over. Game also said that he would no longer mention 50 Cent in his rhymes, either. In October 2009, Game announced that he had completed the album.
Once he completed the album, he set the release date for December 1, 2009. He even went as far as to deliver the first single, “Krazy” featuring Gucci Mane. It was after this that Snoop Dogg reunited Game with his mentor, Dr. Dre. They came together for Dre’s Detox album. While the reunion was mainly for Detox, Dre decided that he wanted to work with Game on his new album.
Despite the fact that Game was finished with the album, he let Dr. Dre do some editing to the project. In the end, Cool & Dre’s work did not mix well with Dr. Dre’s work, so they were almost completely removed from the album. In return, Dr. Dre was able to land Game collaborations with Pharrell and Justin Timberlake. His collaboration with Pharrell ended up leading to Game having him become an executive producer for the album.
After it was revealed that Game had returned to the Aftermath Entertainment camp, he boasted about possibly reuniting with Eminem. Much like Dr. Dre, Eminem remained silent when 50 Cent began his rampage against Game. However, even when Game returned to the label, Em maintained his distance. But, with rumors of friction between Eminem and 50 Cent and more and more faith placed upon Game, it is possible that they end up working with each other.
Eminem frequently states that he is willing to work with anyone that makes good music. Dr. Dre makes good music and he is working with Game. Throughout his career, Game has been solid and with Dr. Dre in his corner, he is going to become one of the most popular rappers in the music industry. Possibly sensing that Game is about to blow and with a new album on the way, Eminem is likely to jump on the bandwagon to receive his hit.
