The rapper and actor known as the Game was born Jayceon Terrell Taylor in 1979. Before the Game rose to prominence for his role as one of Dr. Dre’s most successful apprentices, Jayceon grew up in the Compton area of Los Angeles, known for its high-crime rate and gang presence. As a teenager, Jayceon succumbed to the area’s influences, joining gangs and spending his formative years witnessing such horrific events as drive-by shootings. His parents were also drug addicts who themselves were members of gangs, and so in his youngest years Jayceon found himself in the care of multiple foster families.
To say the least, the odds were stacked against the future rapper from the beginning. But Jayceon’s intelligence and athletic talents were evident from his youngest years. It was his skills on the basketball court that eventually turned his attention away from a life of crime and instead to one with great potential. His talents eventually earned him a scholarship to Washington State University, a turning point in his life, but one which did not last.
After being expelled for a drug possession charge, Taylor found himself back on the streets and an eventual victim of street violence; the result was that he spent a number of months recovering from a series of gunshot wounds. It was during this time that the rapper who would go on to become the Game turned to music, listening to classic hip-hop albums and studying the art of rap and hip-hop. Following his recovery, Taylor adopted the moniker the Game and vowed to become a rap artist. The rest, as they say, is history.
The Game released his first mixtape, You Know What It Is Vol. 1, in 2002, and the endeavor garnered the attention of Dr. Dre, who signed the Game to his record label in 2003. The Game’s major label debut, The Documentary, arrived in 2005, followed by: Doctor’s Advocate (2006), LAX (2008), The R.E.D. Album (2011), Jesus Piece (2012), and Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf (2014.) The albums spawned dozens of hit rap and R&B singles, such as: “How We Do,” “Hate It or Love It,” “Dreams,” “Let’s Ride,” “Wouldn’t Get Far,” “Game’s Pain,” and “My Life,” to name a few. The Game has also appeared as a featured artist on a number of singles by other artists, including R. Kelly, Chris Brown, Joe Budden, and Busta Rhymes.
In 2006, the Game also made his foray into the film world, appearing in the movie Waist Deep. He followed the role with ones in Street Kings (2008) and House Arrest (2012.) Most recently, the Game formed Blood Money Entertainment, through which all of his future works will be released. The label has also signed west-coast rappers Dubb and Skeme. Currently, the Game is putting the finishing touches on his next album, the Documentary 2, which is scheduled for 2015.
