Throughout his career, Game has been exchanging disses with Jay-Z. In the eyes of many, Game has been obsessed with Jay-Z. Everything Jay-Z does leads to some sort of comment from Game about the situation, including the 2011 release of “Otis.” When Game revealed his album would be called The R.E.D. Album, many felt he named his album after Jay-Z’s The Black Album.
Game revealed his work on The R.E.D. Album while he was promoting L.A.X. The final single released from his L.A.X. album was his Ne-Yo-assisted “Camera Phone.” When he was recording L.A.X., Game worked closely with Ne-Yo. Both artists were recording new albums and Ne-Yo provided two tracks on Game’s album, both of which were well-received.
Four years later and months after the release of Game’s The R.E.D. Album, Ne-Yo has revealed his album will carry the same title. In the past, Game has feuded over similar names, as the root of his feud with Jay-Z stems from a feud with Memphis Bleek over the label name, Get Low. Because of this, many wondered how Game would react to the new album title from Ne-Yo.
Game was asked about Ne-Yo’s album and he said he does not know why Ne-Yo has named his album, R.E.D., but he said he knows Ne-Yo as a cool dude, so he has no problems with it.
