Game Drops New DJ Skee-Presented Mixtape “California Republic”
Earlier today (April 5), Compton rapper Game released his new 24-track, album-worthy mixtape, California Republic.
The DJ Skee-presented project is the pair’s seventh collaboration, which includes projects like Brake Lights, The Red Room and last year’s double-disc mixtape, Purp and Patron, as well as its sequel, Purp and Patron:The Hangover. Purp and Patron, downloaded over one million times within three days of its release.
After releasing a number of the mixtape songs over the past few days, Game still provided fans with a hefty gathering of artists, such as Rick Ross, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Fabolous, Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe, Lupe Fiasco, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Lyfe Jennings, Shyne, Nipsey Hussle, and a slew of emerging MCs from the West Coast.
The production on California Republic is handled by Tre Beats, Just Blaze, Cool & Dre, Tyler, the Creator, Lex Luger, Infamous, The Neptunes, Boi 1-da, Mars, and many more.
California Republic came out a little over a week after Game spoke with Billboard about his inevitable departure from Interscope and the inspiration behind the project’s title. “People come here [California] to do music,” Game said. “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.”
Earlier in March, he informed people that they could “expect my mixtape to do what it always does, which is consist of a lot of good music and be a lot better than most artists’ albums.”
Game also has his new, fifth studio album, F.I.V.E., on deck for a release later this year.
