After a downright epic wait, it’s looking like Game fans will finally get their hands on a new album before the summer’s out. While the R.E.D. Album may be back on track for release, those two-plus years of delays and label rigamarole have left the West Coast repper understandably disillusioned with the industry—a fact that’s crystal clear from new single Pot of Gold. A far cry from last week’s b*tches/money-centric Bottles & Rockin’ J’s, this joint finds Game wondering whether he would have been better off if he had never attempted to “follow the rainbow” to fame and fortune. Over The Futuristics’ pop rock-infused production, Game gets a few things off his chest, reminding disappointed fans as well as haters that he’s only human, and revealing his tentative plans for the future: “Give Interscope two more albums, then I’m done for good.” Topped off with Chris Brown‘s plaintive hook vocals, this moody selection may be a bitter pill to swallow, but fans will undoubtedly appreciate its realness. According to Interscope, R.E.D. Album is set to arrive on store shelves in late August—keep your fingers crossed!
