Game's "California Republic" Mixtape On the Way; Talks "Behind The Music" Episode

(AllHipHop News)After announcing the title of his fifth studio album, F.I.V.E. (Fear Is Victory's Evolution), last week, Game has revealed some information about his upcoming mixtape, California Republic, which is set to drop before the end of the month.

The Compton rapper told Billboard that California Republic will "have some new and upcoming artists from out this way," and that fans "can expect my mixtape to do what it always does, which is consist of a lot of good music and be a lot better than most artists' albums."

While no official release date was given, Game promised that the project will be out this March.

He also spoke on his upcoming VH1 "Behind the Music" episode, set to premiere on the entertainment network on March 22.

"The number one thing they're going to find out is that I've grown. When people think of The Game, they just think of this mean face, of my background and bullet wounds and the coma and the gangbanging, and they let that define me," he continued. "But there's a lot more to me. I got a family, I got friends, I smile sometimes, I laugh, I have fun in my life. I think that the 'Behind The Music' will open up everybody's mind on that person I really am."

"Any time I can let another person inside my life to understand how hard it was to get here -- and how hard it was to stay afloat -- they're more than welcome. I'm glad, that VH1 put me on this pedestal and let my life be shown. I can't wait until it airs."

Game's "Behind The Music" episode will premiere on March 22 at 9 p.m. on VH1.
