Despite his fluctuating relationship with Interscope Records over the years, Game isn’t opposed to signing a new deal with Jimmy Iovine when his current contract is up.The Compton MC has to deliver one more album to fulfill his deal with Interscope, and even though his newly titled Jesus Piece doesn’t have a concrete release date, he’s already thinking about his next move.
“This is my last album with Interscope under my contract, I’ll say that. Interscope has a lot of money, and money makes me happy, so we’ll see,” Game told MTV News on Friday when we paid him a visit on the set for his “Celebration” video.
Birdman has expressed interest in signing Game on previous occasions. The move would make sense, considering Game has collaborated with much of the YMCMB roster and holds strong ties to their team; at this point the former G-Unit soldier is keeping all of his options open. “It’s a possibility I might sign with MTV Records, I don’t know. Anybody that got the right situation for me and the right money,” he said. “Baby is like a big brother to me, Wayne is like a brother to me, Mack Maine, the whole Cash Money/Young Money team, it’s always been love with them so we’ll see.”
Wherever he winds up, Game looks forward to finding out what free agency has to offer. “It’s gonna be a real, real cool situation to be in,” he said.
