Game Breaks Down Every Track On “The R.E.D. Album”

August 24, 2011

 

Chuck Taylor goes song-by-song with Billboard’s The Juice.

With his latest release The R.E.D. Album finally in stores, Game recently chopped it up with Billboard.com’s The Juice to break down the entire LP track by track. Of the highlights, he touches on “Martians vs. Goblins” featuring Lil Wayne and Tyler, The Creator and “Drug Test” featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Sly.

“‘Drug Test’ is a great Western smash,” he said. “Anytime you can get Dr. Dre and Snoop on the same record, with yourself, if you are indeed legendary or almost legendary West Coast Hip Hop figure, that’s big. So getting it in with them was nothing but a dream.”

He also explained how album standout “Martians vs. Goblins” came to be, stating how the track’s trio has much in common.

Weird, funny, crazy and a little out of pocket. I called it ‘Martians vs. Goblins’ because me and Weezy have been saying that we were Martians as long as I’ve known him. And then on the song, he says, ‘What’s a goon to a goblin?’ And I was like, ‘Maybe he’s not a Martian no more. He’s calling himself a goblin.’ So then Tyler comes out with an album called Goblin and I just wanted to pit all of us up against each other and kind of mix it in.”
