Game: Human Nature

DX follows Game around New York for a series of events that show the man behind the star, as he talks about "R.E.D.'s" significance, and additional recording with DJ Toomp & DJ Premier.

In the midst of that pounding New York concrete heat, Game greets me with a firm handshake outside of his Midtown hotel. Two months prior to the release of his R.E.D. album, The Compton Rap star exudes nothing but confidence. We jump into a black Mercedes Benz van, en route for a series of events that may seem extraordinary to most of us, but are just a day in the life to Aftermath's middle child. Vh1's Hip Hop Honors' taping is just the beginning of my hours with Jayceon Taylor, but it's quickly apparent that he will not leave New York City without making it just a little bit hotter.

It's apparent that Game both enjoys and underplays his stardom. En route to our second destination, the platinum star in white tee, jeans and a tucked-in chain watches an anxious group of students in elegant attire cross 8th Avenue. Bringing his window down, Game yells, "Be careful tonight!" to the teens. They react with glares and eyerolls, unaware that celebrity cautions them.

The rapper slides open the van door and shows them to take heed to these particular words of wisdom. The prom goers stand in disbelief, as Game smiles, and then closes the door. One has to wonder if the charismatic Rap character we've gotten to know over the last six years would be doing this sort of thing anyway, without the fame, the millions, or the "ah, ha" moment.

For all the bragging you hear on his records and in many of his interviews, Game constantly reminds anyone in his company of his humanity. Towards the end of the evening, we are at Power 105, visiting DJ Clue. On his phone, Game has a picture with his grandmother that he stares intently at, unaware that anyone sees. However, everybody's watching.

We know what to expect from Game, the controversial Hip Hop star who drives headlines and speaks with reckles truth. But it's how Jayceon Taylor, the man intervenes that stardom that makes so many fans embrace this man as David, and not Goliath.

HipHopDX: A lot of people believe that this R.E.D. album is representative of your affiliation with the Bloods, but it really stands for your rededication to Hip Hop and music. What made you realize that you wanted to continue putting out music, especially after you said you were retiring after your L.A.X. album? Was there a specific moment that led you to want to “rededicate” yourself to your music?  

Game: If people think it got something to do with my gang affiliation, it do. It’s just red; it’s the color and every aspect of it that sort of attains itself to me. You can think what you want, but it’s really the rededication of myself to Hip Hop and to my fans, to my family, and life...just to life in general. This project feels like starting all over, feels like the beginning again. All the old entities are back, you know outside of 50 [Cent], but we got Pharrell in, so that kind of covers that. But it just feels like the beginning so I called it the Rededicated album.

DX: It was announced that R.E.D. is delayed until late August. We heard that you might be doing some additional recording. Did you just get the premonition that you had more to say, or did someone reach out? What prompted that in the eleventh hour?

Game: Nah, just had a couple of producers I wanted to work with that I feel could have really really took the album over the top and so that’s what we are doing in the next couple of weeks.  We are going to see [DJ] Toomp and try to get in with [DJ] Premier and make it a little more classic than it already is.

DX: The staff at DX was recently agreeing that in the last decade, you've got the best beats from Dr. Dre. Whether it was The Documentary or stuff that leaked later, you and Snoop Dogg's Blue Carpet Treatment were just such massive moments in Dre's catalog. From your studio chemistry, do you think there's a reason for that? What you bring out of each other?

Game: I just think that with [Dr. ]Dre, it ain’t chemistry, it just is what it is man; that’s Dr. Dre. He’s the best producer in the world. No matter who records with him; Dre can make you a star over night. If you go in with Dre tomorrow, and he works on a couple tracks, then all of a sudden everybody is waiting for your album to come out. He’s just so iconic. Everything he does is just classic man. I’m glad that we have a close working relationship, and that when I need him he always comes through.

DX: The Documentary is a fan favorite for many rap fans. Tracks like “Westside Story”, “Dreams”, and “Don’t Need Your Love” were very different from anything that was out at that time. Do you think R.E.D. will have that same effect on fans? How does it show your progression as an artist?

Game: My progression as an artist on the new album will be showed through my lyricism and the way that I tell stories now are very reminiscent of how I did on The Documentary. The beats are always going to be there, I got the dopest beats in Hip Hop for an entire album. So every beat is going to be out of here and crazy, and it should be. With producers like Cool & Dre, and Dr. Dre, and Pharrell, and Timbaland, and I got it in with Swizz Beatz and Ryan Leslie, a whole bunch of dope producers.  I think that when fans get the album they gonna be real satisfied.

DX: Of all the Rap stars on Twitter, your tweets are some of the most entertaining. From the artist's perspective, what's been the most interesting thing you've learned being so accessible to your fans and your critics?

Game: I just go through life. And however I wake up in the morning, that’s just how I carry out the day. I don’t really learn life lessons, I kind of just analyze people, and I take my lessons from other people that make mistakes. These days I’ve grown a little more wise with age; it sort of breeds that. I learn life lessons like every day, from different people, from everybody. But one thing I learned the most is that as long as you keep it absolutely 100% with yourself, then other people will see it the same way.

DX: We recently interviewed your Aftermath label-mate Slim da Mobster. As two street soldiers in the Rap game, how's that working relationship been?

Game: Slim [da Mobster] is fresh, new talent. Dr. Dre really believes in him, so I believe in him. I think he’s dope, he’s raw, and he’s from L.A., so I’m sort of biased.

DX: Can you speak about Black Wall Street. Recently, Mysonne appears to be down with the camp, but will 2010 see that official release debut from your imprint?

Game: I think about early 2011. We just now starting to get these mixtapes rolling. We did one with DJ Skee, The Red Room , that was crazy, and online critics loved it. And then we about to put out another mixtape with [DJ] Drama then one more with Skee, and that’ll cover the rest of the year. Then at the top of the year, we will be coming out with probably a compilation or before next summer, or something like that, depending on how everybody’s work ethic is and how my touring is. We got the cover of Murder Dog this month, and you know I’m laying the foundation. 

DX: Michael Jackson must have been a huge influence in your life since you were a part of the Michael Jackson tribute that dropped the day after his death. What was it like working on the track “Better On The Other Side”? How did his death impact you?

Game: It just felt like I was doing him a justice. He had just passed, and I felt like I was just the first on the job. I felt like, if something happened to somebody, or Michael Jackson…the first person on the scene that sort of helped, I felt like I was that person. I was the first person to get down to the studio and then I made phone calls while I was getting down, we made the beat fast, called Diddy, called Chris Brown, called Usher - Boyz II Men was already in the studio. We just basically got it done quickly.

DX: You recently stated in an interview that you do not feel that it is necessary to promote your new album, because real Game fans will go ahead and buy it.  However, it seems as if your product manager Andrew Flad feels differently about that.  Have you guys come to an agreement about promotion plans for this album?

Game: I think that people took that the wrong way. I just said that I feel like that after three albums, and this one being my fourth one, that my fans - I don’t necessarily have to go out and just say, “Hey, go buy my album.” I don’t have to force people to buy the album. Sometimes with promotion, that’s what labels send you out to do; go sell yourself. I don’t think I have to do that anymore. I think everybody knows who I am and who I’m about. And I still come and make these runs, but I’m not making nobody go buy the album. I don’t give a fuck if you buy it or not. You know, get it how you get it. If you don’t have the money, and you need to bootleg it, do that. Of course the labels going to think differently, and Flad is one of my working partners. He work for the label, but he my friend outside of that. So, fuck him.

DX: The first three songs of the R.E.D. album will not have any hooks. What was your logic behind starting off your album with you just straight rapping, rather than including any hooks on the songs?

Game: It sort of just happened like that. It wasn’t a plan. I did the tracks at different times, and when I tried to go through the sequence, I ended up lining songs together and I realized they didn’t have hooks.

DX: What are your tour plans with your album? Word is that you will be touring with N.E.R.D.

Game: Yeah, we going to tour with N.E.R.D over in Europe, and then after that I’ll come back and do the U.S. I’m all over the place when it comes to touring.

DX: Often times the public refers to your music as “classic Gangsta Rap.” How do you view your own music?

Game: I don’t. I just let the critics and let you guys do that. I just make it.

  • bigdave55

    dj premier is producing some of MC Eiht's new album . now the game wants to work with him too . the game is wack

  • Kiiskis

    Some of Game's tracks are good, but generally speaking he's just another 'meh' mainstream artist talking about guns and women and whatnot. Who cares? You can spend that money on Sabac Reds up and coming album, or Revolution of the Minds up and coming album, or Rakaas album. There are countless less-known artists that are way better and actually deliver messages/stories with their songs, instead of just bragging or acting like someone they're not (the life Game says he's lived is not actually his own life from what I've heard, but his big brother's life). And why is it that people who can't spell or don't know the first thing about grammar seem to be the people who are the first to buy CD's from Game, Lil' Wayne, 50 Cent etc?

    • PAPA GUNZ AKA MR FUCK HIP HOP

      people is entitled to purchase what they feel like purchasing thats like me saying fuck the music you listen to go buy a 50 cent album people is gonna buy what they gonna buy i just had to come to the conclusion that whatever you like you support... reguardless if the content is uneducated and foolish or educated with substance

    • fuuckyaaaa

      fuck that man! yea i fuck with reflection eternal but you know what, i love games hardcore west coast gangsta music!!! sometimes game goes deep and his name droppin always make sense...........and unlike other artists, game aint telling them to buy his records, he says we can even bootleg for all he cares, thats a real artist man, not just thinkin about himself and the green but carin for his fans! meh? hes the only few artists out there that are SUCCESSFUL in the mainstream without selling out and making bullshit cd's not giving a shit about the fans. he still makes hard ridin music for the ppl, for that i give him props and support him! he always trys his best to deliver on his albums with hard spits and good producers, and actually trying his best and not just tryin to sell bullshit pop music like drake or all those other faggots who only cares about sales. for that, im copping RED bitches!!!

    This guy is totally fake. He was going to WSU on a basketball scholarship and looking like Sisqo, then suddenly he's bangin COMPTON. Please. If you saw him behave like a baby on Punk'd, then you know this dude is a giant man-child and about as gangsta as Larry David. Seriously, dude looks like shiny brown play-doh now.

  • RON LEE

    "He work for the label, but he my friend outside of that. So, fuck him." LMAO! hate him or love him, this dude is straight entertainment. and hes more hip hop than most people give him credit for. and one of the few rappers that mentions the artform and lyricism in just about every interview, putting it before the fame and $. I'm not gonna say every track he's on is dope or that he's the best out, but he's definitely one entertaining motherfucker both personally and musically.

      Does anyone have the NEWEST clip of Beanie Sigel comin at Jay-Z? I keep finding ones from last year, but I heard he just put out another song, freestyle or an interview talking about Hov again. A couple years ago, State Prop was bigger than Roc-A-Fella and Beanie was a top 3 rapper at the time. No doubt about it --he fell wayy off but there was a time....

    I'ma cop that album.

  • jeremiahftw

    I've never respected the way game conducts himself as a man. The man seems very underdeveloped in maturity. He dissed Pharrel a few years ago, then when pharrel confronted him about it game said it was because pharrel never made him a beat before... that was the best excuse he could come up with. Now they're working together, which is cool, but that just shows you what kind of person game is, a very petty, immature man. He doesnt understand the value of accountability... always going back on his word. Never depend on a man like that. Pac was deep, game is just confused. But I like his music, I like his music, but due to his character as a man his words will never touch me on a personal level.

      Ur a fucking a lame oooooo game doent act like a man bcuz he says some shit in interviews n hes not mature ur a bitch hahhahahhaha who give a flying fuck

      I agree with everything you say and tbh your shit is on point. But for one thing. Do you really expect maturity in a genre where artists boast about prostitutes sucking their dick and where they are so insecure that they are quick to jump at anything which they perceive as a verbal slight? Just enjoy the music. It would be good if Pac was alive. But he ain't. So just enjoy it for what its worth. Its not like other rappers are any more mature. its not like Jay-z shows any more maturity. His beef with Nas showed how mature he was - lets leave it at that. Same with Lil Wayne, 50, Snoop Dogg and others. There are a few exceptions, but rap probably does not have too many of them. So yeah, Game makes decent albums, but unless you're Game's baby mama or unless you're marrying him, you can spare us the sermon on being a man and being accountable.

  • rickreserve

    he ridin out on this track i dont know what its called but its hot.nice flow to it

  • rickreserve

    ive made some comments about game as far as some of the moves he makes,which shouldnt be my concern anyway.i always felt game was a talented rapper just a little disappointed by his antics and the way he would be quick to switch shit up as far as what he was standing for.i bought the records he has made like documentary,doctors advocate,lax wasnt as good but still decent.you cant judge someone or something unless you walked in there shoes or been thru it your self.sometimes i think people be bullshittin when they say i dont care if people buy the record or not.then why are you investing your money into something you dont care if people buy or not and millions at that.makes no since to me.its statements like that which make me further believe that hip hop is dead to a degree.when does a artist stop caring about there bottom line when they create the bottom line with budgets,and promo touring and what not.i hope the best for people in the game underground or not,i just think being honest is something people fail to be when they know that if they dont sell at least half of what they put out there especially on something you consider a classic there wouldnt be any form of disapointment,thats bull shit.

    Game needs to release dis album already.. im gettin tired of these other bullshit mc's in the rap game

  • pienman

    good look...good luck blood

  • D.D.410wutup

    I wonder how many times he lied... lol

  • trly yrz

    I think it's a good interview, compared to what I've seen on other sites at least. Last one was better.

  • ???? still best rite now!!

    I think he might actually drop a gem with this one... not sure if he'll be able to catch the mainstream..cuz his recent reaches have been misses. cant wait for this shit! R.E.D

  • problemz327

    This interview could have been so much better..say what u want about Game himself but he never shortchanges people when it comes to production..He always got producers who bring heat (except The Neptunes-time for them to fall back from this project)..toomp and primo on the boards is guaranteed crack though...

  • hiphopsouthside

    GAME NEEDS TO REALIZE THAT PEOPLE ARENT EXCITED FOIR RED ALBUM BECAUSE OF THESE PHARREELL SONGHS SERIOULY GAME READ THE COMMENTS ON THESE SITES PEOPLE ARENT LIKING THE PHAREEL TRACKS MAN TAKE THAT GUY OFF THEN I WILL BUY YOUR ALBUM PHARREELL IS A GREAT PRODUCER ITS JUST HIM AND GAME CANT COLLAB ITS NOT MAGIC WITH THEM

    • ikonent

      PHARREELL ass is ok in the sence that the beat will be produced and arranged professionally but that's about it.

  • ScottSauce

    " I don’t have to force people to buy the album. Sometimes with promotion, that’s what labels send you out to do; go sell yourself. I don’t think I have to do that anymore. I think everybody knows who I am and who I’m about. And I still come and make these runs, but I’m not making nobody go buy the album. I don’t give a fuck if you buy it or not. You know, get it how you get it. If you don’t have the money, and you need to bootleg it, do that." Games that dude!!!

  • shamrock12

    Thank God he had the sense to keep recording cos that music hes been releasing is far from classic

    • ikonent

      the game ass is fake you can't have that many threats in a song- then be friends .... and if they do then the other dude is a bitch most of these rappers need fathers to raise them not pussy women with that be friendds shit!!!

    • PE

      You can say that again. Holla

    • spfc

      i think the tracks that have been leakin in the internet are just left over tracks he wont be using... or maybe most of them... even though many game fans don't have much faith on R.E.D. based on whats been leakin, i think we'll all have a good surprise

    • yoawa

      "Shake" was okay. But I feel like Game gets these big concepts that he tells press about and then Interscope shoots them down, looking for hits. I was a whole lot more excited about this album when it was Dre's show, not Dre & Pharrell's. But I'll end up buying either way. I like Game, for just the very reasons the article says. He's bold.
