Rapper Game recently talked to MTV News about leaving Interscope Records, even though he just released the video for "The City" from his latest Interscope album a few days ago. He told MTV that signing with an independent label is a possibility, although he does like the help a big label can provide.
"That seems like a really, really good move where I can capitalize off of all the finances being made off of my music for once, but I don’t know. I kinda like having a lot of help, a lot of assistance from a big label. I don’t know, maybe we’ll have a meeting about a lot of money or I’ll be talking to my conscience."
As for new music, Game is currently working on a new mixtape titled California Republic. The new mixtape will feature artists such as Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Wale and Drake.
"Everybody from Waka Flocka to Meek Mill, Wale and Ross and Drake [will be on it]. I’m just calling in Hip-Hop favors to get my fans some free music," Game said.
"Basically California Republic, it’s an umbrella. People come here to do music, a lot of stars are in and out of town for countless awards and what not and everybody appreciates the California sun and everything under it. From the good green, the women, ya know, just our lifestyle. That’s pretty much what it’s about,” he said about the title of the mixtape.
Expect California Republic to drop this spring.
