West coast emcee Game has settled on a release date for his long-awaited “The R.E.D. Album.” The rap star sent out a tweet this week announcing that his next record will be arriving in stores on August 23rd. Game went on to say that fans don’t need to worry about the album being delayed again. He explains that he decided on an August release after a conference call with Interscope Records and music executive Jimmy Iovine. Game recently released the video for “The R.E.D. Album’s” first single, “Red Nation.” The clip for the Lil Wayne-assisted track has been banned by MTV and BET, but has already collected more than two-million views on YouTube.
Game’s last album was 2008’s “LAX.” The record opened at number two on the Billboard 200 chart thanks to hits like “Game’s Pain,” “Dope Boys,” and “My Life.”
