Game to Drop New Mixtape Before Releasing "R.E.D. Album"

Game announced that he and Mars of 1500 Or Nothin' will drop a new mixtape before "R.E.D." hits shelves in August.

Even though it's taken him longer than he expected to release his The R.E.D. Album, Game has been keeping his fans in no short supply of new music this year. Now, Game is teaming up with producer Mars of 1500 Or Nothin' to release his third mixtape of 2011.

Last night, Game took to Twitter to announce that he and Mars would join forces for a new mixtape, slated to be released before his long-awaited The R.E.D. Album's August 23 release date. Then, earlier today, Mars followed suit, revealing that the tape, titled Hood Mornin', will hit the Internet on August 1.

Over the past few years, Game has worked extensively with 1500 Or Nothin', most notably on "Dope Boys" and "Touchdown" off 2008's L.A.X.. Mars is also acting as co-executive producer for The R.E.D. Album.

This past January, Game dropped his double-disc Purp & Patron mixtape to much critical acclaim. He followed up the project with The Hangover, a ten-track tape comprised of b-sides from Purp & Patron.

DX will keep you updated when more information on the mixtape comes to light.

    The game has fallen off and he'll be in for a shock when he sees his first week numbers. He cant generate a buzz for shit

  • HRH

    If he's laced those mixtapes with those few tracks that were album material I would expect a dope album. But, he don't seem wise enough to spit rhymes anymore. He's been sounding spit out, and since there was hardly any anticipation given after so many mixtapes I think he's done for. Still be nicer than L.A.X tho

    This nigga game will do anything for a buzz. Truth is not many people fuck with him anymore

    there really is some dense peeps in the word the game has been in the top 5 since he came out not once has he lost his touch i find it scary that we get loads of diffrent artists in and out of hip hop who r classed as the next best thing and mc's like the game dnt get the credit he deserves and imnot even a massive fan of the game but u cnt fuck with his flow,passion,wordplay,aggreshion and love of hiphop

    GAME knows he's gonna flop. interscope knows he's gonna flop. they're just getting it out of the way so they can get him the fuck out of there. they're sick of paying for videos, sick of paying for features, and sick of dealing with his hot and cold bullshit. this fool has recorded like 3 or 4 videos for the RED album, there's no way the label is seeing a return. this album will have GAME in the RED, for the rest of his career. guaranteed to be the last album game ever drops on a major. wait and see.

    Say what you wanna say about game but every mix tape he has drooped has been some good shit. I will get this new mix tape as well I just hope with all this mix tape droppin that the red album will be flawless.

  • Hannya

    Fuck yes!! I'll be there. Makes absolutely no sense why anybody would complain about free music. This tape should be good, especially if Mars of 1500 is being involved.

      and don't forget The Hangover too -- Game's releasing FIVE albums this year if you count the double P&P, Hangover, this new mixtape, and RED

    • otto

      game's singles i.e. red nation and pot of gold are yet to really catch fire though they,especially the latter,have the potential to.but til' then he is using mixtapes to serve the purpose of singles which is a very smart idea considering that he has a lot of good material recorded judging from purp and patron.

      true, if you're gonna drop a mixtape make sure they're good 'Redroom' and 'Brakelights' were good , #'purp and patron' was shit except one or two tracks.

    • HRH

      Me 3. This album is overhyped for a year too long. Even when I heard The Kill I was just RED'd out by then.

    • MANOTTI
