Game Shoots ‘Post-Apocalyptic’ Video for ‘Red Nation’

California rapper Game shot a “post-apocalyptic” video for his new single ‘Red Nation,’ under the historic 4th Street Bridge in downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday night (April 5).

Equipped with road flares, flashing red lights, an army of extras and a smoldering set, the rapper — sporting a new red mohawk — described the shoot as a “real rebel scene,” held together by director Parris, who previously shot Rick Ross‘ ‘Blowing Money Fast’ clip.

“I was over there in a bunch of dirt with rocks, and behind the gate were a bunch of guys I couldn’t see, looking all menacing and scary and [with] bats and sticks and poles,” Game told MTV. “And that was kinda crazy, man. I was in sort of like an army fatigue thing, doing my thing. But it was fun, man, the first shot — had a lot of fun, got real sweaty ’cause I was jumping around, man. A lotta dust and smoke — it was crazy man.”

The lead single from his long-delayed ‘The R.E.D. Album,’ ‘Red Nation’ features a guest appearance by Lil Wayne and production by Cool & Dre, who flipped a slowed down sample of Zombie Nation’s jock-club classic ‘Kernkraft 400‘ to create the beat.

“I haven’t done a video this dark since ‘How We Do.’ But it’s looking crazy,” Game told Rap-Up TV. “The first scene I was in army fatigues and had a bunch of lunatics behind a gate going crazy, and I was kinda giving it up in the dirt.”

Game’s ‘The R.E.D. Album,’ though still unfinished, will finally hit stores this summer.
