Game Releases "California Republic" Mixtape Trailer

UPDATE #2: Game takes it to the left coast with his upcoming mixtape "California Republic."

MTV recently caught up with Game to talk about his upcoming mixtape California Republic. The Compton rapper gave a few details on the impending project, saying that he's enlisted the likes of Rick Ross, Drake, Waka Flocka Flame and more for guest features.

"I've got a mixtape coming called California Republic, so everybody from Waka Flocka to Meek Mill, Wale and [Rick] Ross and Drake [will be on it] - just callin' in Hip Hop favors to get my fans some free music," he said. "Basically, California Republic, it's an umbrella. People come here to do music, a lot of stars are in and out of town for countless awards and what not and everybody appreciates the California sun and everything under it. From the good green, the women, ya know, just our lifestyle. That's pretty much what it's about."

Game also spoke about his tentative plans to part ways with his label Interscope Records. He says that he has been considering moving to an independent label, but that he's worried about losing a lot of the assistance that he had at Interscope.

"Independent - that seems like a really, really good move where I can capitalize off of all the finances being made off of my music for once," he said. "But, I don't know, I kinda like having a lot of help, a lot of assistance from a big label. I don't know, maybe we'll have a meeting about a lot of money or I'll be talking to my conscience."

  • realest quote

    All you new hip-hop fans (15-25 yr olds) have horrible attitudes about life and music. You don't even discuss the music like we did back in the day when Run DMC, Nas, Wu-Tang, Rakim, Biggy, Pac, etc. was running the game. ALL you guys do is have your little online race wars and cry about Eminem vs whoever or Jay-Z is illuminate or who's "real" or not. Worst of all you think there is one way to rap or one style to floss. You guys are too myopic, boring and ignorant to call yourselves "hip-hop" fans. It was never like this in the 80's and 90's. Black and White kids grouped up and pushed for better race relations. We were too smart to suck on the FOX news or CNN teat. This is what's frustrating the pioneers of rap music and new well rounded rap artist. You FANS, YOU FANS, have lost ALL perspective....

He's exclusive with his music. And Game's like everyday thing. Jay-Z is like 4th of July - 1 special day in a whole year." @yung egg. ahahahah

    You're coming off the flop that was The Red Album. Now you're putting your all into a free mixtape? Seriously. What label is going to sit down and offer you a Brinks truck of money? Rappers need to start treating mixtapes like albums and make sure places like Target, Best Buy, etc. stock them. This way, even if they don't release an actual album for years, in between, they could release scores of mixtapes and still be seeing some money.

    • theyalreadydo

      They already do that. How do you think some of these no-name and not mainstream rappers are so popular? Freddie Gibbs tweeted pics of him copping a Porsche. I love the dude's music but he's not mainstream at all. It's because his mixtapes are fire. There are ads on the websites that support the artists, from what I understand. Plus, they can tour off of it if it's that good (ie Drake, So Far Gone).

    Trashery starts all over again. Dude is jus' cleanin' up his hard drive from unfinished FL Studio 128 kbps .mp3 beats and old, stolen features, just like on "Brake Lights". A couple of joints were ok, but the rest is str8 bullshit. And Rae did the same thing lately. Trash and internet quality. People don't appreciate real music no more. I'm not a die hard fan of Jay-Z, but he at least doesn't shit on himself with free-mixtapes. That's why he's so rare nowadays and saught after. He's exclusive with his music. And Game's like everyday thing. Jay-Z is like 4th of July - 1 special day in a whole year. That cover is shitty too.

  • WestCoast,,,More Like WTF

    Not understand how this even sounds like a Cali album but...ok. I see what he is doing. Just like all the other artist are doing. They aren't trying to make music they love, they want money. And they get money by putting people who are popular on their CD. I remember before when it used to be about people you grew up with and supported you. Now's everyone is just a disloyal piece of shit. People telling on they homies, talking shit about them....getting on the news and snitching on them.........Niggas snitching and calling others snitches........ This must be the new hipster shit.

    yep it's the fuckin needy crowd again. you think it's that easy to drop a tape with no features? no one to feed off of, no other vocal/lyrical help to make the track hot, nothin? A lot of rappers pulled the cord on trying that shit. Snoop tried to do that, he ain't went through with it. Ice Cube. some niggas like Talib made it but fuck that was his feel and he went through with it. tough. stop being entitled pissants, half of y'all know you're gonna cop his mixtape, other half knows they gonna at least listen to one or two bangers on the tape, regardless if Drake, Officer Ricky or Soulja Boy's left testicle had a cameo on there. on a side note, I'm pretty sure when Game said no more features, he was talking about an ALBUM and other shit happened like, y'know, him wanting to leave Interscope, which can change a nigga's whole ball game(new contacts, beats, projects, etc) I'll agree the guest features sound wack. I dunno what kind of shit Game's going for with Drake and Waka.. but whatever. above points though I stand by.

  • jr88

    lil wayne say stuff like, "im on like the television" and "talked to a female dragon, had a fire conversation" and "life is a beach im just playing on the sand" that last one was actually from an old coffe actually noticed it from an old movie and i said to myself "where did i here that line" wayne raps simple words.thats why kids are the majority of his fans

  • Why oh why?!

    Why's he featuring artists that aren't from the West on this mixtape if it's called "California Republic"? He should just feature West Coast artists, but whatever. Hope this mixtape turns out to be dope.

  • alex

    To CrackPipe: If you're gonna sit there and qoute lines from wayne's songs, you obviously have no real ear for music. lil wayne is not an mc, lil wayne is a freestyle rapper+ he kisses guys, and dresses like a white boy. If you idolize a rapper who wears the same leggings as your girl, then you needs to get your head checked, bruh. To me, wayne is garbage, considering he has no content in his music. He talks aboout the same shit, he just puts it in different words. You need to google real mc's, like, eminem, nas, game (he's a true mc, f*ck all you haters), slaughterhouse, jay z, big boi, andre 3000, those are real mc's. Stop making yourself look stupid. Wayne is trash, and the entire ymcmb movement is garbage, with MAYBE the exception of mystikal, and busta.... and they just joined, so you cant really count them as orignal members... mystikal and busta are going to make that group, not whack ass dudes like drake, lil b, limp bizkit for gods sake, tyga... thats the problem with music, weak ass rappers who don't talk about shit. If you think making a great rapper depends on how much money you got, please, don't even start. Check who the top selling artist is in the last 10 years. You might of heard of him, his name is eminem. Respect your elders, and stop polluting your ears with that garbage ymcmb music. If you catch yourself rapping rack city, and quoting words like nacho, pronto, and honcho, you should just slap yourself. If you catch yourself to singing , ' im so, im so, im so proud of you ', kick yourself in those baby nuts you got. CrackPipe... go eat a d*ick bruh, you dont know shit about hip hop.

      Totally agree, he should be in the studio with other west coast artists for this mixtape. Would like to see him reach out to DJ Quik, Battlecat, Khalil, Fredwreck, Alchemist, EP, etc for production. If he's determine to work with popular weak rappers on this project over talented ones I think he should save the 'California Republic' title for when he intends to deliver what he's best at.

      Xzibit worked with game for his new album "Napalm" and Game's Mixtape "California Republic"

Game dropped Red Room, Blood Red Album, Purp N Patron, P N P The hangover, Break lights, Hood morning and the R.E.D. Album. Thats why I bought 2 copies of R.E.D. Album "Game recognize Game" Also if you listen to music the way its meant, and let it seep in to your mental, you realize R.E.D. is a classic. If you hate the game? why the hell are you chking for his shit? U.C. fans I wasnt feeling some of the songs towards the end of the album @ first but now, I bump that shit in its entirety.
