It’s always more fun in California. That’s not the state motto, but the tourism board should consider it after taking a peek at Game’s new video for “Shake,” an MTV News exclusive.
In the video, Game rubs shoulders with a number of celebs, from actress Stacey Dash to Bow Wow to producers Cool & Dre. The opening scene finds Dash gazing out at the beach from the balcony of a secluded property. Game quickly walks up behind her, taking in the view, before backing away into the house again. There, the camera pans to reveal two scantily clad women asleep on the couch.
The L.A. rapper then strolls into his walk-in closet — which is a modest characterization. Game’s “closet” is about the size of your local Foot Locker and boasts more sneakers and athletic apparel than the retailer. He sports a pair of Air Jordans and a throwback Michael Jordan jersey and begins his adventure.
The ensuing high jinks take Game from behind the wheel of an SUV to riding shotgun in a red Ferrari. Along the way, he stops by Bow Wow’s for a quick pickup, then he’s back on the road. (The contents of the bag the rappers pass from one to the other are revealed at the end.)
Directed by Taydoe and financed by Game, the video marks the first offering from his mixtape The Red Room, out Monday. The mixtape features appearances by Birdman, Nipsey Hussle, Hurricane Chris and others. His next full-length project, The R.E.D. Album, is due June 15 and features guest spots from Dr. Dre and Justin Timberlake.
