I’m taking this quote a little bit out of context to be perfectly honest, but I think my point is still valid. Vibe caught up with him about the much delayed The R.E.D. Album and it seemed like he was selling his features more than he was selling himself. Typical Game activities. I thought he was in denial about not being relevant, but forcing a Tyler, The Creator feature leads me to believe otherwise. How does a Game/Tyler joint even make sense? It doesn’t but Game needs to leverage other peoples relevancy.
“I think the people will appreciate the collaborations. Dr. Dre is actually rapping on this album. This is the first album that I’ve ever dropped where I have Dr. Dre’s voice actually on the album. Features range from Snoop Dogg to Pharrell to Wiz to Trey Songz to Chris Brown, and Drake’s on the album. I got a good cast of all-stars.”
“Oh yeah, Tyler [The Creator] is on the album. I forgot about him. He ain’t really doing features for nobody. He feels like f*ck everything and I don’t blame him either. It’s a California thing, and I got respect for him and his hustle and what they’re doing and just being kids and being rebels for the cause,” Game said of recently befriending the Odd Future frontman.
“And he respects me for doing what I did for California and the West Coast, I guess. I met him at a Diddy concert and we chopped it up and we got a song called ‘Martians vs Goblins.’ It’s dope.”
