Game’s last record, L.A.X., was the weakest of his three major label releases, but his brand new DJ Skee mixtape Brake Lights (download here) suggests that his next, The R.E.D. Album, coming out on August 24, might mark a return to former greatness. Most of the mixtape is produced by Cool & Dre (with DJ Toomp, J.R. Rotem, Lex Luger and others filling out the beat roster), and guests include Busta Rhymes, Nas, T.I. and Snoop Dogg. The best beat (for “Blackout”) features a genius Robert Tepper sample, and the Busta, Dre collabo “Cold Blood” lifts a superb guitar lick.
