The Game plans to concentrate on becoming the next great hip-hop mogul after he retires from rap at the end of 2008.
The Los Angeles-based star recently announced his upcoming third album would be his last, stating he plans to devote more time to his kids.
But he insists he won't be turning his back on rap - he hopes to become the next Diddy or Dr. Dre.
As the force behind the label Black Wall Street, The Game insists he'll become a major player as an industry bigwig.
He says, "I've been spending 100 per cent of my time being Game, so I haven't been able to focus on my producers and my artists, so this year I'm gonna get it crackin'... the same way Dre, Quincy Jones and Diddy do it (sic) - by being a rap mogul.
"There are a lot of ways to keep hip-hop alive without being an artist. I don't have to be vocal to make it happen."
