October 14, 2011 - Los Angeles, CA - Game will be hitting cities nationwide this fall on tour in support of his R.E.D. Album, which debuted #1 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart the week of its release.
 
The R.E.D. album, said to dually stand for Game's "REDedication" to rap and family, showcases production from Dr. Dre and DJ Premier and features from established south region stunners Big Boi, Young Jeezy and Rick Ross and west coast collaborations with Snoop Dogg, E-40 and scorching newcomers Kendrick Lamar and Odd Future's Tyler the Creator.

The R.E.D. Album is Game's fourth album to debut #1 on Hip-Hop/Rap album chart and his third on the Top 200 chart.  Game's platinum selling debut, The Documentary, was released on Aftermath/G-Unit/Interscope Records in 2005 and produced a two-time Grammy nominated single, "Hate It or Love It," which reached #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs chart. Game's second album and #1 debut, Doctor's Advocate, also sold upwards of 1 million records and his third album, "LAX,"  missed the #1 spot by just 1000 copies, debuting at #2 on the Top 200. Known as much for his street bangers and Pop pleasers as he is for his deeply interpersonal reflection albums Game continues to demonstrate his flourishing versatility.

One Of Detroit's Finest Joins In For A Remix From Roach's Bitch, I'm A Player EP

Leading up to the release of his Bitch, I'm A Player EP, Roach Gigz released "Drugs," a track that featured fellow Bay rapper DB Tha General. Unsurprisingly, the song fast became a fan-favorite, with Roach and DB trading their energetically under-the-influence bars atop producer C-Loz' equally bouncy, synth-driven production. Now, Roach Gigz is excited to release a remix for the track featuring Danny Brown.

Author blurb

J-ZONE is a connoisseur of humbling reality checks, lesser-known rap albums from the early ‘90s, self-deprecation, and full-fledged lampoonery. His primary hobby is assailing our daily acts of bullshit. Throughout his decade and change in the music business, he's worked with the likes of Gnarls Barkley, The Lonely Island, Biz Markie, E-40, and Prince Paul, to name a few. As a writer, his work has been published in the Common Culture pop culture textbook series, SLAM Magazine, The Source, and London's Hip-Hop Connection (HHC), among others. He's a regular contributor for ego trip NYC and moonlights as a high school sports reporter in the New York Metropolitan area. J-Zone has also taught music classes in the SUNY (State University of New York) system. He's an insubordinate curmudgeon and a New York native who will invoice you if you send him emoticon and acronym-laden text messages. He lives in Queens, New York with his beloved grandmother, "Evil E".

It’s been two months since John Dew dropped Tech-NASA, and since then he has remained hard at work. The latest release from the Houston emcee is a video for "King On A Throne," the song that served as the lead single from Dew's new album and fast became a fan-favorite "My intentions were for people to receive this video as it was meant, simple and to the point," explains Dew. "I didn’t want to have to many distractions, I wanted the viewer to be focused on my lyrics. I needed to portray how it feels to be on top of the world, while staying grounded in the streets.”
