Game is currently prepping the release of his star-studded R.E.D. Album, but his favorite artist to work with on the project was none other than Dr. Dre. The Compton, California native explained that he relishes any opportunity to collaborate with the West Coast veteran.

“The best person to work with is probably definitely Dr. Dre,” he said during an interview with FUEL TV’s “The Daily Habit.” “He’s always been like a father figure, older brother. And it’s just like going back to school and somebody really putting in the time to help you with your work ethic.”

Though he took a break from working with the former N.W.A. member, he’s glad they had their time apart. “It was five years, but I kind of think I needed the break. I matured a lot, it helped me grow. I had a lot of time to reflect on my life and my career and to go out there and do it myself,” he continued. “But being back with Dr. Dre makes it a lot easier. He’s definitely the greatest hip-hop producer of all time, and one of the best producers of all time. No disrespect to Quincy Jones, but Dre’s great.”

R.E.D. Album is slated for release on August 23rd.
