Game Collaborating With Lupe Fiasco
West Coast rapper Game has announced that Lupe Fiasco is appearing on a track called “Skate On” on Game's upcoming R.E.D. Album. The album is dropping August 23rd, and Game explained the concept behind the track and the collaboration.
“The Lupe track, I forget who it’s produced by, I just know I got it from Fabian who mixes most of the Neptunes stuff,” he said. “Lupe was in the studio with me and Pharrell and he got on it, and it’s called ‘Skate On.’ You know the skateboard community, like everybody skates. Lupe skates, and I thought it would be cool to take that and make it reverse psychology. You know, like when some bullshit’s about to jump off, you’re like, ‘I think we should skate.’ It’s kind of like that, that world meets ‘get the fuck out of there because some drama’s coming,’ and you know the drama’s coming from my side.”
Game also addressed Lupe’s controversial comments regarding President Obama. “Yeah, to each his own. I know Lupe, and I know he’s a good dude. I didn’t hear it and I don’t know what he said, but I don’t give a fuck ‘cause Obama’s our president, and I ain’t never met him yet, but he’s a cool guy evidently,” he continued. “And Lupe’s my homeboy, so to each his own. So whatever he said, I’m pretty sure he can stand up behind. That’s him.”
