2011's Most Anticipated Albums- #8: The R.E.D. Album

The Game's career has been full of ups and downs. His debut album, The Documentary, was one of the best-produced Hip Hop albums I've ever heard. Yet, his previous albums have lacked the cohesion and focus needed to back his claim as one of the best MCs in Hip Hop. I guess the one thing that is most disappointing, is that there is no doubt that he has the talent to create a classic album.

That's where The R.E.D. Album comes into play. Rumored to be co-executive produced by Dr. Dre and Pharrell, hopefully they can help put the pieces of the puzzle together and create a truly special project. Expect production to come from the good doctor, The Neptunes, Cool & Dre, Timbaland, Bangladesh, Just Blaze, and Kanye among many others. So far, none of the tracks that have been released have caught on, forcing the album to be continually pushed back. Below, I've posted a link to what was the first street single, "Krazy," and the video for the Cool & Dre-produced "Shake." Both are pretty underwhelming, but give them a try.

Complex, which is by far one of my favorite publications, recently released a list of their top 25 most anticipated albums of 2011, which you can read right here.
