Though Game is readying the release of his fifth studio album, Jesus Piece, the rapper is looking ahead to life after Interscope. Game’s latest release will fulfill his contractual obligations to Interscope. His new plan moving forward? “I just started a new record label, Rolex Records, and we’re going to get off the ground and see if we can move,” revealed the West Coast emcee to Billboard. Game won’t be going this new route alone, however, saying that Stat Quo would be in on what he described as a joint venture. ”He was signed to Aftermath with me in the beginning. Now we’re business partners, which is cool because he was a good friend of mine and he’s just as equally music smart so we’ll see how it goes,” “We’ve been up and running for about thirty days,” he added. “We’re gonna do it big though.”
Before Eve joined up with Ruff Ryders and set her career into motion, she was known as Eve of Destruction and signed to Dr. Dre‘s Aftermath Entertainment. But when it wasn’t working out between the rapstress and the West Coast veteran, she got dropped from the label – a situation she recalls as “devastating.”
During an interview with MTV’s RapFix Live, Ruff Ryders’ First Lady says that Dre never reached out to her directly to discuss her getting dropped, but says that they weren’t seeing eye-to-eye. “That was devastating. Of course [Dre didn't call me]. It was real stealthy, too. I was in my cute little condo. I was 18, too. I was ballin’. They was like, you gotta go home,” she said.
She also remembered that a particular person called her to break the news. Though she had to move from Los Angeles back to her native Philadelphia, she says that it was for the best.
“There was a person who definitely had the conversation with me, and I thought they was lying. And they wasn’t lying. They sent my ass back to Philly. If I would’ve come out then, I wouldn’t be where I am now. I know that 100 percent. I’m glad I dropped the ‘of Destruction’ part. I just want to be Eve.” Source: hiphopdx.com
