Compton rapper The Game has decided to pull a Diddy by dropping the “The” from his moniker, now only to be known as Game. This change comes as Game prepares to release his fourth studio album “The R.E.D Album.” No official reason was given for the sudden adjustment.

Although the name change isn’t much of a change at all, Game’s upcoming “The R.E.D. Album” may be different that anything we’ve heard from the “Hate It Or Love It” rapper so far. Game, who claimed to retire after the release of his “L.A.X” record, says his next project is “rededicated” to hip hop. He declares the album to be “serious” and “soulful” while still managing to keep it “gangsta.”

Game’s new approach to music has prompted some interesting collaborations for “The R.E.D. Album,” which will feature guests such as Akon, Diddy, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross and Beanie Sigel.

A series of tracks from the album will be released within the next week. The first track, “Crazy,” was produced by Timbaland and features “Wasted” rapper Gucci Mane. The next release is a more mainstream song, “LA Girl,” which features the vocals of Chris Brown and production by Pharrell. Among the other producers for “The R.E.D. Album” are Akon, Pollow da Don, Cool and Dre and DJ Khalil.

Of course the album that caused Game to come out of retirement wouldn’t be complete without the Doc on the scene. Game recently tweeted a picture of Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre and himself in the studio, supposedly working on Dre’s long awaited “Detox” album. Game’s fans can only hope that the tweeted picture was a studio session that may have produced possible tunes for “The R.E.D. Album” as well. Regardless, this west coast reuniting is sure to intrigue hip hop fans.

”The R.E.D. Album” is slated for release on December 8th, one week later than the original December 1st date.
