The Game – American “west side” rapper

The Game’s real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor. He was born on 29 November 1979 in Los Angeles. Then his family moved to California. However, pretty soon, Jayceon went back to the Los Angeles suburbs because he was temporarily adopted by another family. It happened after Taylor’s sister accused their father of sexual harassment. When Jayceon turned 13, her mother got the parental rights back, and he came back to California. Taylor became involved in the local crime society controlled by two gangs, "Santana Blocc Compton Crips" and "Cedar Block Pirus Bloods”. The boy joined the latter.

Jayceon barely finished high school in Compton and enrolled in Washington State University. He was getting a basketball scholarship. However, he was caught for drug possession and had to leave college. Taylor went back to the streets and started dealing drugs and getting involved in other criminal activities. In 2001, the young man was heavily wounded in a shooting and spent 3 days in ф coma. At that time, he decided to change his life and look for legal ways to earn money. That’s where his love for rap came in.

Together with his brother Big Fase 100, who was also a gang member, The Game founded a record label The Black Wall Street Records. At that time, he was studying the albums of different rappers, looking for something that could catch the audience’s attention. The rapper adopted a pseudonym thought up by his grandmother, who was sure Jayceon was a big fan of the same-name movie, which was popular in 1997.
