Album track "It's Okay (One Blood)" featuring Junior Reid is No. 16 this week on Billboard's Hot Rap Songs chart; the first official single, "Let's Ride (Strip Club)," was produced by Scott Storch and will hit radio next month.
Although additional details have yet to be announced, Game is known to have worked with producers Cool & Dre as well as the Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am. Guest appearances are also tipped from Mary J. Blige and Nas.
"He rolls with a different type of people," will.i.am told Billboard.com last week. "I was nervous; I didn't know what to expect. But I got to know him in the studio, and he had fun just like everyone else. He loves music just like I love music. That was the bond and respect that we took from that studio session."
It is unknown if Dr. Dre has contributed production to "Doctor's Advocate," as he did on "The Documentary." The Game was formerly signed to Dre's Aftermath label but split with the company in the wake of his long-running feud with 50 Cent and G-Unit.
Meanwhile, the Game guests on rapper Xzibit's new album, "Full Circle," due Oct. 17 via his own Open Bar Entertainment/Koch.
