Kanye West and Jay-Z aren't the only ones with the bright idea to join forces in an effort to make powerful music. In an interview with XXLmag.com, Game recently revealed that he almost teamed up with Rick Ross and Beanie Siegel to form a supergroup à la Jay and Ye, called ESPN (Everyday Stacking Paper N-ggas). However, the Compton rapper also revealed that the plan to combine forces never quite came to fruition due to conflicting schedules.

"Me, Rick Ross and Beanie Sigel [were going to call ourselves] ‘ESPN (Everyday Stacking Paper Niggas),’” Game told XXL. “That’s what it is. We entertained doing a group before, but then Rick Ross went crazy with the Maybach Music Group and he signed Meek Mill and all of them. So that reality didn’t come to pass. But that’s where it was when we did ‘Heavy Artillery.’ If you can imagine an album with us three."

"Heavy Artillery" will be featured on Game's long-awaited The R.E.D. Album, due in stores August 23.
