A-Game's previous mix tape release, "No Mo Games" hit May 29, 2015 through digital shops world wide.

In IamAGame's new single "I Can't Tell", A-Game depicts family loyalty, a strong dose of reality, and targets those talking about what they don't have with a focused lyrical skill. Produced by K Swisha , the beat is ferocious and bangs in clubs, cars, and homes. "I Can't Tell" is infectious and can be played repeatedly making it strong debut single for the upcoming "My City Made Me A Monster" mixtape.
What do you bring to the Industry?
Good music with authenticity. I strive for my music to be heard and felt and I'm a perfectionist that focuses on making quality songs. Not just rhymes over beats. By reaching to make people want to listen over and over, keeping an magnetic chemistry that is my own is what I bring.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Being on the road so much has already taken us to the sky, across the country extending my music's reach and I truly appreciate the love we've received from every city. That being said, I see shows overseas and across the globe. As independent companies that are continuously building results, I see myself established lucratively in this business and reaching out to take new talent to the next plateau.
Definitely keep your ears to SaintLouisRadio.com IamAGame is in deep rotation with the No Mo' Games mixtape and I Can't Tell is a banging sophomore debut that we're happy to blast!
