Complex says: The Game has been working on The R.E.D. Album for two years now, but we’re not complaining after hearing his new single, “Red Nation,” featuring Lil Wayne. The video may have been banned from MTV, but it made enough noise to restore interest in the project, and we expect the Compton native to on his fourth album.
