Earlier today, HipHopDX announced that The GameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s album L.A.X. was pushed back (with a similar move on G-UnitÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s part). On San DiegoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s radio station 93.3, The Game called in to verify the date, as well as talk about a few other matters.
Known for his name dropping, The Game explained his reasoning for listing several past great MCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on his newest single Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Pain,Ã¢â‚¬Â featuring Keyshia Cole [click to listen]. Ã¢â‚¬Å“My whole rap thing, my whole thing in Hip-Hop is to always educate or to take it back and pay homage, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m all about.Ã¢â‚¬Â
This was his first chance to get in the studio with the bay-native Keyshia Cole since his career took off in 2005. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Keyshia Cole, you know sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s from California. She is one of the dopest young up and coming R&B singers out man. I always wanted to work with her since the beginning. SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s like a little sister to me and always has been since the beginning of both of our careers.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Of course, no love has been lost between him and G-Unit, so it was inevitable that he would throw a couple verbal punches in the interview. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I pushed his album back, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m Mr. Interscope. I pushed his back to the 1st and then a week later on the 8th IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m gonna come behind it and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m gonna clean up all the broken CDÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s.Ã¢â‚¬Â
He also announced a possible tour with LilÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Wayne. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We trying to get something together now. I think me and Weezy going out this summer on the Blood Brothers tour, we gonna do all the states. Nothing solid [yet], but you gonna see Game out with somebody or somebody out with Game man cause itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s time to get back to work.Ã¢â‚¬Â
L.A.X. is due out July 8th.
