It was Game time as the leader of the “Red Nation” shot the Parris-directed video for the first single from his R.E.D. Album, due this summer. Filmed under a bridge in downtown Los Angeles, the West Coast kingpin debuted his red Mohawk as he rapped against the gritty walls with an army of rowdy supporters fenced in behind him.
“I haven’t done a video this dark since ‘How We Do.’ But it’s looking crazy,” Game told Rap-Up TV on set. “The first scene I was in army fatigues and had a bunch of lunatics behind a gate going crazy, and I was kinda giving it up in the dirt. It made me feel like Kanye in that one video [‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing’] where he was in the desert doing his thing.”
Lil Wayne, who assists on the Cool & Dre-produced record, will film his scenes at a later date. “We brothers of the same cloth,” Game said of his frequent collaborator. “I reached out to Weezy, let him know I needed him on the hook, and of course he knocked it out for me like he always do.”
Pay a visit to “Red Nation” and hear the Compton MC explain his new look and when we can expect his oft-delayed R.E.D. Album, which is 95% done.
