The stars are aligned for Drillmatic. In an interview with Mike Tyson’s “Hotboxin'” podcast, The Game revealed that their new album will feature collaborations with Chris Brown and Chlöe Bailey. The untitled track samples Janet Jackson’s Velvet Rope single “Got ’til It’s Gone”.
“I had a record today with Chris Brown and Chlöe Bailey, which is drugs,” he told Tyson. “We literally did that today, and that was the last song on the album.”
Game and Chris are no strangers to collaborating, working together on tracks like “Celebration” and “Pot of Gold.”

“I like to say that it’s probably my best album to date,” said Game. “I kinda bridged the gap between old and new. I’m real hip-hop oriented and a student of the game, but also appreciate young Black rappers getting up out the ‘hood and being able to use music of any facet to take care of their families and better their life. So I’m mixing old school with the new school.”
Game is confident that his first album in three years will raise the bar. “It’s the perfect timing for someone to stand in the gap of old hip-hop and new hip-hop and put out a project that is really dope from the production, lyricism, everything,” he said. “I don’t know why I’m this good this late in my career, but the album is probably my best album.”
During the interview, he also discussed his relationship with 50 Cent and the late Nipsey Hussle, who he called a “dear friend to me, a brother, comrade, and one of the realest ni**as I ever met in life.”
