Compton, California rapper Game is presently touring Europe. With appearances in Poland, Germany and France, the Aftermath Records superstar recently spoke to a French journalist and camera crew about breaking the language barrier, and recording with Sony Music France emcee La Fouine. “La Fouine is like my brother,” said Game.
The rapper then revealed that the two have worked together on a song that’s expected to release any hour now. “So I talked to him, he said he wanted to do a song. So we did a song, shot the video, and it’ll drop December 15th. All my French fans, they’ll get a chance to check it out. The [wild] thing about it is, I’m rappin’ in French.”
Speaking about his knowledge of French Hip Hop, Game pointed out Booba and Rohff, before deeming La Fouine as ” the best rapper in France.” La Founine, is from the city of Trappes, a western suburb of Paris. He has released three albums since 2004, and four mixtapes.
While Guru famously worked with MC Solaar on his Jazzmatazz projects, few American emcees have worked with artists in France. Recently, French deejay David Guetta found success, producing for Kid Cudi and The Black Eyed Peas.
Additionally, Game revealed that he has launched a new label. Asked if he’ll continue to work with French emcees and artists, Game stated, “Maybe I’ll find a new up and coming French rapper and sign him to my label. I started a new label two days ago, called Kush House.”
Previously, Game founded Black Wall Street Records, a label that has yet to release an album from any artist, but has artists such as Juice, Mysonne, and Clyde Carson.
