"I didn't make this record for press purposes or for hype cuz that's not my thing. I got wind of various artists referencin me in a negative fashion. They poked fun at me I'm just pokin back. Its all sport to me. I wish em all the best, they just need to understand who is off limits. MC Lyte is off limits. Rah Digga is off limits. Respect those who kept hip hop raw so that we could still have a culture or get a first hand lesson in a lyrical ass whoopin. Love is love." - Rah Digga
Multi-platinum Grammy-nominated Interscope artist Game released California Republic on Thursday, April 5. Presented by DJ Skee, the Golden State project features the likes of Rick Ross, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Pharrell, 2Chainz, French Montana, Meek Mill and more. 'California Republic' became a worldwide trending topic on twitter within minutes of it's debut with downloads crashing several servers all over the internet.
Game is currently hard at work on his upcoming F.I.V.E. (Fear Is Victory's Evolution) album, with four Billboard #1 album debuts (2005's The Documentary, 2006's Doctor's Advocate, 2008's L.A.X. and 2011's The R.E.D. Album) to his name. Known as much for his street bangers ("Westside Story," "It's Okay," "Dope Boys," "Red Nation") as for his pop pleasers ("Hate It or Love It," "My Life," "Wouldn't Get Far," "Pot Of Gold"), Game continues to be a radio favorite with content ranging from intensely aggressive to deeply interpersonal.
