News: Game (@thegame) Announces Album Title
With a video for The City (featuring Kendrick Lamar) ready to be released and a new mixtape in the works, Game reveals to XXL that he will be titling his fifth studio album F.I.V.E. (Fear Is Victory’s Evolution).
The meaning behind that is like—me as a rapper, you as a journalist, Kobe as a basketball player—you gotta be afraid to do something, or have those butterflies in your stomach. We all get that feeling. Before you did your first interview, you probably was like, ‘Damn, I don’t want to ask the wrong questions. I want to do this right.’ Me, before I wrote my first rap, or the first time I was in the booth. Fear. But then fear is victory’s evolution. After a while, you become a dope journalist, I become a dope rapper, Kobe is Kobe. You achieve and you pass over that fear. Now it ain’t fear; it’s just victory. It’s victory of all.
