News: The Game Goes R&B Heavy On "L.A.X.," Links w/Ne-Yo


By Janelle Griffith

After several delays in the release of his album West Coast rapper The Game is speaking out on what to expect from his LP.

The Compton California native will drop L.A.X., his third studio album at the end of July. As SOHH previously reported L.A.X. was originally slated for a June 24th release which would've pit the Game against his rival G-Unit's T.O.S. (Terminate On Site). Each album has since been scheduled for separate release dates in July.

The first single off L.A.X. "Game's Pain" features Keyshia Cole and climbed up the charts, peaking at #1 on BET's 106 & Park. The track was produced by Knobody and Dahoud.

Game also paired with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker for the street single, "Dope Boys." On the hip hop side, he partnered with Lil' Wayne on the track "My Life" which was produced by Cool and Dre and with Chicago natives Kanye West and Common for "Angel."

On the R&B tip, Ne-Yo appears on both "Camera Phone," another Cool & Dre production, as well as J.R. Rotem's "A Thug and a Gentleman." "Let Us Live" with R&B songbird Chrissette Michelle and "Put Ya Hands Up" with Busta Rhymes were both produced by Scott Storch.

Aside from these collabos, fans can also expect appearances from Raekwon, Bilal, Raheem DeVaughn, Nottz, Irv Gotti, DJ Toomp and Hi-Tek.

L.A.X. hits stores on July 22nd.
