The first single, titled "Ringtone", was released June 8, 2008. A second single, titled "Crush", featuring singer Ray J was released July 27, 2008. Warren G has also leaked the well-received "Mr. DJ", though later admitted that it would not be included on the album because he had forgotten where he found the sample.
