This Wednesday, June, 6, multi-platinum hip-hop recording star The Game will release six new tracks EXCLUSIVELY on AmieStreet.com. The new songs from The Game and his label Black Wall Street include "Around the Way," "Murda," "My Bitch," "Beautiful Life," "Still Me," and "Won’t Stop." These songs will be accompanied by songs from Riz and Nu Jerzey Devil from the label Livelihood Entertainment. The Game’s music is the most recent in a string of content releases on Amie Street including Nettwerk Music Group’s catalogue and the Barenaked Ladies. The Game partnering up with AmieStreet, where his songs will start free and be without DRM, marks a turn in digital distribution for artists big and small.
Launched on July 4th 2006, Amie Street is the first online music store where the community determines the price of songs and members are rewarded for their music recommendations. Amie Street helps increase exposure and revenue for artists through an innovative, demand-driven pricing model, where all songs start free and go up in price the more they’re purchased.
The Game released his first album, Untold Story, on an indie label in October 2004 to much critical and retail success. His career grew as he worked closely with other recording artists including Dr. Dre who helped him to collaborate with Interscope recording artists and others. His major label debut, The Documentary, came out in 2005 at number 1 on the Billboard charts and went on to garner The Game two Grammy nominations for the single, "Hate it or Love it." His sophomore
album, Doctor’s Advocate, was released in 2006 on Geffen Records and sold almost 400,000 albums its first week.
