Faith over fear.
The Game (born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, 29.11.1979) The Game is an American rapper. His album, The Documentary, propelled his initial rise to fame and he has since received two Grammy Award nominations.
Childhood: The Game was born in Los Angeles and raised in Compton, California. When he became involved in gang activity, The Game was initially a member of The Crips, but soon swapped allegiance to their rival gang, The Bloods.
Taylor attended Compton High School and won a basketball scholarship to Washington State University but was expelled in his first term, after being caught with drugs. He turned to street culture at this point and looked up to his brother, 'Big Fase 100', who was the leader of the Cedar Block Pirus gang.
Musical Career: The Game, along with his brother, Big Fase 100, founded Black Wall Street Records. They released records by the likes of Vita, Glasses Malone and Nu Jerzey Devil. In 2002, The Game released his first mixtape, entitled 'You Know What It Is Vol.1.'
Later in 2002, The Game signed a deal with Get Low Recordz. He later signed a deal with Dr Dre's Aftermath Entertainment in 2003. The Game's debut album, Untold Story, was released in 2004 and sold in excess of 300,000 copies in the first three months on sale. 'You Know What It Is Vol. 2' was released on his own label.
In order to create a buzz around a number of their hip-hop artists, Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, of Aftermath Entertainment arranged for The Game to work with 50 Cent and G-Unit. The Game's first appearance on Aftermath was on Jim Jones' 'Certified Gangstas.' This was followed by his own single, 'Westside Story.' The Game was known to have a number of feuds with artists such as Ja Rule, Memphis Bleek and Lloyd Banks.
In 2005, The Game released The Documentary. The original title, Nigga Wit' An Attitude Volume 1 was changed, after Easy-E's widow objected to the use of N.W.A.'s name. The Documentary spawned hits such as 'How We Do' and 'Hate It Or Love It.'
The Game departed from Aftermath Entertainment, because of his feud with 50 Cent and the G-Unit crew. He released his second album, Doctor's Advocate on Geffen Records, in November 2006. This album was created without the help of Dr. Dre or 50 Cent but still went to number one in the US album charts and sold more than 358,000 copies in its first week alone.
The Game's third album, L.A.X. featured the single 'Game's Pain.' In July 2008, an announcement was made to the press that The Game would be joining Westside Connection, along with Ice Cube and WC.
Personal Life: The Game has a son, Harlem Caron Taylor (b. 2003). He was set to marry Valeisha Butterfield, the actress daughter of Congressman G.K. Butterfield. However, in June 2006, the engagement was called off.
The Game's second son, King Justice (b. 2007) was born to Tiffany Webb.
The Game has had a number of ongoing public feuds. Amongst the people with whom he is known to have had 'beef' are Jay Z, Roc-A-Fella Records, Yukmouth and Suge Knight.
In October 2005, The Game was arrested and charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. The Game argued that he was wrongfully arrested and the police officers involved in the arrest have stated that they intend to sue him for defamation.
The Game was arrested again in May 2007, when he was alleged to have threatened somebody with a gun at a basketball game. He was sentenced to 60 days in prison, as well as receiving three years probation and 150 hours of community service.
The Game is accusing Meek Mill of being a snitch after Sean Kingston robbery.
Meek Mill and The Game have some serious beef going on right now, apparently to do with the robbery of Sean Kingston. Last week The Game released a diss track called '92 Bars' and also unveiled a shot of himself with Mill's girlfriend Nicki Minaj. Mill has since responded in kind.
Meek Mill is in serious trouble with The Game
In response to The Game posting a shirtless picture of himself and Nicki Minaj on Instagram, Meek Mill re-posted a video of The Game crying about not wanting to be a part of hip hop following the shooting of groom-to-be Sean Bell by police officers in 2006. He's now deleted the post. From what we've gathered, The Game is angry about the Philly rapper - who was recently sentenced to six years of probation after a parole violation - 'snitching' on him to police detectives following a situation where Sean Kingston was attacked and robbed in a nightclub.

The victim was in stable condition as of Sunday night.
BET Awards weekend started with a tragedy this year, when a guest at Meek Mill’s pre-awards party ended up in hospital with stab wounds. The incident took place on Saturday night, June 28, at Lure nightclub. Meek Mill was hosting a rousing pre-BET bash, when a fight broke out. The 20-something man was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital, but TMZ has obtained footage of him laying on the curb waiting for help while a friend yells at the police officers to hurry the ambulance.
Meek Mill himself was not directly involved in the brawl.
The man incurred two stab wounds in the stomach, but his condition is stable, the website also reports. The reason for the fight has not been uncovered so far. The man’s identity and that of his attacker are being withheld. The party was also attended by The Game, Lil Boosie, Mase and actress Kyla Pratt.
The 34 year-old rap star is ordered to stay at least 100 yards from his ex-fiancé after allegedly breaking her nose.
Rap star The Game has slapped with a restraining order against his former fiancé Tiffney Cambridge after an alleged attack that occurred last month (March).
Cambridge filed the order, which states The Game has to stay at least 100 yards away from her at all times, after she suffered a broken nose and was badly beaten by the rap star on March 16th, TMZ reports.
The order is scheduled to be in place until their court hearing next month, but due to the pair sharing two children together, The Game will be able to see them on weekends.
The rapper says he'll "beat the living s**t" out of Trayvon Martin's killer.
Rapper DMX is to fight George Zimmerman in a so-called celebrity boxing match, courtesy of Damon Feldman the owner of Celebrity Boxing. The hip hop star, AKA Earl Simmons, will take on the man known for the fatal shooting of teen Trayvon Martin in February 2013 and ensuing high-profile court case.
DMX Is Set To Take On George Zimmerman In The Boxing Ring.
Zimmerman was acquitted for murder in the manslaughter trial but the heavy media coverage of the case means the 30 year-old Virginian quickly became a household name and is a highly controversial figure. Feldman, who famously pairs bizarre opponents in the ring, announced last week that he was looking for volunteers to step into the ring for a three-round, pay-per-view fight with Zimmerman.
Two rappers have offered to lend their names to the George Zimmerman celebrity boxing match just so they can get in the ring with the former security guard. The Game and DMX have both offered to fight Zimmerman.
The Game and DMX have offered to fight George Zimmerman in the upcoming celebrity boxing match, scheduled for March 1st 2014.
The Game has offered to fight Zimmerman in the upcoming celebrity boxing match.
Zimmerman is the security guard who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012, allegedly in self-defence, and was acquitted during trial last summer. The case was hugely controversial as Zimmerman was accused of racially profiling the teenager, as a result numerous protests were organised throughout the US and attracted the attention of high profile individuals.

Zimmerman already has over 4,700 eager opponents lined up.
Earlier this week blogs and news websites exploded after the announcement that A. George Zimmerman is somehow considered a celebrity and B. he’s going to fight on Celebrity Boxing and take on anyone who steps up to be his opponent. Zimmerman might not have seen this coming, but it was completely predictable for everyone online: a lot of people want to fight Zimmerman, who was acquitted last year for the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Like many others, The Game is outraged at Zimmerman's surge in popularity.
So far, 4,700 people want to step into the ring for a round with Zimmerman, according to TMZ. The list includes The Game, who said: “I just think that how Zimmerman is playing it, just being a media w***e and looking for all this attention that he shouldn’t be getting for these things,” he said in a call with TMZ. “If there’s a chance to box him, I want in.”
The Game is joining the Cash Money ranks.
The Compton rapper entered a brief period as a free agent after his five-album deal with Interscope Records expired in 2012 following the release of Jesus Piece.
However, Cash Money rarely miss an opportunity like this and CEO Brian 'Birdman' Williams announced the news on Twitter over the weekend. "S/O [email protected] Westcoast makit Official.RICHGANG.YMCMBusine$$," he said, prompting The Game's response, "@BIRDMAN5STAR time to close the door on these (expletive) !!!! R$CHGANG."

The Game runs to Khloe Kardashian's rescue as he warns photographers he is worse then Kanye West!
Rapper 'The Game' cautioned photographers that Kanye West's infamous rage is nothing compared to him.
The 33 year-old was warning photographers to leave his friend, Khloe Kardashian, alone when she and her rather large entourage were leaving Tru nightclub in LA on Monday night (Oct 7th).
The threat was captured on camera by gossip site TMZ, which showed the 'Hate It Or Love It' rapper threatening and shouting at the paparazzo's;

Last week saw the mighty talents of Alicia Keys displace Rihanna’s Unapologetic from the top of the Billboard 200 in a big way, with the former holder of the number one spot falling down to sixth. Girl On Fire was Keys’ fifth number one record in the States, taking in sales of 159,000 on its way to the top spot. Those are solid figures to be sliding off coming into the new weekend, but will they be enough to hold on? The good news for Keys is that, with Christmas approaching, new releases are thin on the ground. The bad news is that one of them’s the new Bruno Mars album.
Yes, though he may appear to physically have the consistency of candle wax, Mars has written a darn fine second album, with Unorthodox Jukebox a canny exercise in carefully choosing the right combination of influences to click together; allayed with the Grammy Award-winning star’s penchant for a big whole-hearted chorus, we can see this doing just as well as his 2010 debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans, which went on to sell over six million copies worldwide including 1.7 million in the States.

Invest in your woman’s dreams & keep her woke at the same time.
“You’ll never be criticized by people doing better than you, but you’ll always be criticized by people doing less.”
Do women still put on lingerie for men in private or is it just for social media these days ?? Asking for a friend.
People will stand right next to you & won’t support you, but jump to support some shit others are supporting just to seem kool.
Inspiring people at the highest level & still remaining true to yourself is a lost art.
Yo nigga outside walkin up crates, I’m inside dropping off the milk.
