The Game On The R.E.D Album & Beef With 50 Cent

The Game is currently working on his R.E.D Album in Los Angeles, but he took time out of his recording schedule to say that the album title has nothing to do with being a Blood or a gangmember, but it is really a play on Jay-Z’s The Black Album.

The Game said that “the R.E.D Album is about to be serious, man. It’s a step up, it’s a little soulful, I gotta say. Still gangsta — we getting it in. I’m keeping everything on wraps right now. “

“This album … it’s gonna be different,” he added. “I was wondering to myself how I’m gonna elevate myself and even change the field. Three albums … what do you talk about after three albums? I ain’t selling crack and gangbanging and shooting shit up. My beefs have been down-low. So what do you really talk about? I just wanna rap, man. I just wanna do music. Whatever it turns out to be, it turns out to be. Long as every song has that collective feel — they gel — then we good. I’m just gonna rap this time.”

The album is scheduled to be released in 2009.

The Game has ended his beef with 50 Cent and he said that he wants to apologies to 50 as a man and to the fans. The Game said that he is growing up and wants to focus his energy on music. 50 Cent commented that he is not interested in working with The Game.
