Background

Game had confirmed that he would retire after his 2008 album, LAX. [2][3] However, he announced that he would release another album titled D.O.C. or Diary of Compton, if he could get help from the original N.W.A members.[4][5] In November 2009, HipHopDX interviewed Game and he stated that the reason he would not release D.O.C. this time was because he needed help and focus from Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg and the key elements were not there when he started the project. Game also stated "[What I was working on], the fans just started calling it R.E.D. for some reason, I don't even know. I had [previously] said that I would re-dedicate myself to Hip Hop, and they just took that and was like R.E.D. - rededicated. I went along with it, man" [6]

"Krazy", was released as a street single along with the official single, "Big Money", on October 29, 2009.
