The Game announces release date for new album

The Game has revealed the release date for his upcoming album, Drillmatic – Mind Vs. Heart.

The album marks the veteran rapper’s tenth album, and The Game, who has never been short of self-belief, previously said it will “be the best album of 2022” and he “feels like I just signed my deal”. He’s been releasing tracks from the record throughout the year, and now there isn’t long to wait.

In an announcement, The Game told his Instagram followers his new album will be dropping on June 17th, and it has also been executively produced by Hit-Boy. Additionally, he shared an old photograph of himself and his son, however, it is unknown whether this is the album art.

Hit-Boy recently discussed the project on Sway Calloway’s Sway In The Morning radio show, and also played a sneak preview of a track from Drillmatic. “I gotta hear that Game shit,” Sway told Hit-Boy, which convinced him to drop a snippet.

Meanwhile, The Game recently revealed he only challenged Eminem to a ‘Verzuz’ battle because 50 Cent “can’t rap”.

“I like Eminem, he’s one of the fucking good MCs, great MCs. I used to think Eminem was better than me,” he admitted on the Drink Champs podcast. The rapper was then asked if he feels that way, to which he replied: “He not. He not. He’s not. Challenge it.”
