Game Announces New Album Title ‘F.I.V.E.’

Game

Game is forging ahead with his fifth album. The Compton MC has announced a new title and plans for another mixtape.

The follow-up to 2011’s The R.E.D. Album will be called F.I.V.E., an acronym for Fear Is Victory’s Evolution, he told XXL.

“The meaning behind that is like—me as a rapper, you as a journalist, Kobe as a basketball player—you gotta be afraid to do something, or have those butterflies in your stomach,” he explained. “Before I wrote my first rap, or the first time I was in the booth. Fear. But then fear is victory’s evolution. After a while, you become a dope journalist, I become a dope rapper, Kobe is Kobe. You achieve and you pass over that fear. Now it ain’t fear; it’s just victory. It’s victory of all.”

The title takes inspiration from Nas. “I’m gonna always come with a dope concept,” said Game. “That’s word to my ni**a Nas. I’m a huge fan of Nas, now he’s like my brother in this shit. I’ma always try to keep my albums consistently tied into some kind of concept.”

F.I.V.E. will be his fifth album for Interscope, but he’s yet to decide if he will resign. “Once I do this F.I.V.E. album, it might be a wrap,” he said. “I know somebody going to give me some millions before I do anything. I see myself getting a lot of money to carry out the remaining time in my career. It don’t really matter where it’s at—it’s just the imprint on the back of the album.”

The album was previously titled Soundtrack to Chaos. Last September, Game said it would be entirely produced by 1500 or Nothin’ and would not feature any guests. “It’s my last album on Interscope. No features, nobody to clear. That’s it. Once the samples good, we good. Nobody on the hook except us. No Weezy, Jeezy, Drake, no singer, no nothing—just us,” he said.

Game is planning to drop a new mixtape later this month and recently shot a video for “The City” featuring Kendrick Lamar.

    Enough of these acronyms already, ‘Soundtrack to Chaos’ sounds way better, anyway let’s make this a good one, R.E.D was a bit disappointing in my opinion.

    Wait, if fear turns into victory, doesn’t that mean “Victory is Fear’s Evolution”?

    Soundtrack to Chaos sounded better IMO but I guess title doesn’t matter as long as music is good.

    Let me try this again. J’s album is good. Really good. It’s a love album about all the agnst and punishment we erudne. He has a broken voice like Neil’s that evokes nuanced feelings otherwise not conveyed by lyrics or instruments. Unlike Neil, he’s is a guitar player. He can pick a rythm and lead simultaneously that draws you to the mirror. Where you stand in silence wondering what you’re looking at. This album has polish and depth. It carries an ebb and flow. It tells a story of love lost, fought, found and held. I listen to a lot of crap waiting for brilliance. This album percolates with sparkle and grain. I think he’s onto something both personal and universal. This album reaches across the gap between the reclusive artist J’s always been, to the audience he never cared to find.
