Jimmy Iovine Has Promised the Game’s R.E.D. Album Will Be Out This Summer

With his excellent recent mixtape Purp & Patron, the Game rekindled anticipation for his upcoming album R.E.D. Album. The problem is, R.E.D. Album is the latest project in a long, proud history of hip-hop albums that can't get a release date to save their lives. But the Game swears this thing will be out by the end of the summer, and he says this with the word of Interscope head honcho Jimmy Iovine behind him: "I had a meeting with Jimmy Iovine last week, and he told me the album was slated for the end of the summer, and it will not be pushed back any more than that. So we're looking towards late August." Don't lie to Game, Jimmy! [Billboard]
