Biography

Early life

The Game was born to an African American mother, Lynette Baker and his father George Taylor, who is of Spanish and Native American descent, in Los Angeles, California in 1979. He spent the earliest years of his life in the district of La Brea before his family moved to Compton, California when he was four years old.[1] After his older sister accused his father of sexual molestation[7] when Taylor was five, his family was split up and The Game lived with a foster family for eight years in Carson, a suburb of Los Angeles (located immediately southwest of Compton). When Taylor was 13 his mother was regranted custody and he was reunited with his family in Compton. The Game spent his later life living in a primarily Crip gang neighborhood known as Santana Blocc,[8] although the rapper would grow up to become a member of the Bloods.[9] Taylor claims that his mother and father were both affiliated with Crip gangs. After graduating from Compton High School,[10] Taylor had a short stint at Washington State University on a basketball scholarship. However, The Game was kicked out in his first semester because of drug allegations.[11] It was then that he started fully embracing street life and turning towards selling drugs.[12] At 18 years of age he began to follow his older half brother "Big Fase 100" who was the leader of the Cedar Block Pirus. Taylor was shot five times after a failed drug deal in 2001,[10] receiving bullet wounds to the heart, stomach, and arms. This attack put him in a three day coma and while recovering in the hospital, he decided to pursue a career in the rap industry.

Early career

Studying various classic rap albums, The Game developed a strategy to become a rapper himself, and with help from Big Fase they founded The Black Wall Street Records. The label originally featured such artists as Glasses Malone, Vita, and Nu Jerzey Devil, along with The Game himself. The rapper's stage name was coined by his grandmother, who gave him the nickname because she claimed he was always "Game" for anything. The Game first gained prominence when he attended a hip-hop summit hosted by Russell Simmons and Louis Farrakhan,[13] releasing his first mixtape named You Know What It Is Vol. 1 in 2002, followed by a record deal with the independent label, Get Low Recordz owned by JT the Bigga Figga. Originally Sean Combs of Bad Boy Records was going to sign him to his label,[14] but Game's mixtape found its way into the hands of famed producer Dr. Dre, who proceeded to sign him to Aftermath Entertainment. To capitalize on the growing buzz, The Game continued to release music. In October 2004 The Game released his first album Untold Story through Get Low Recordz, which managed to sell over 82,000 copies within its first 3 months.[15] The album featured artists like Sean T, Young Noble (of the Outlawz), and JT the Bigga Figga.[16] The Game also appeared on many mixtapes hosted by DJ's such as DJ Kayslay, DJ Whoo Kid, and DJ Clue. The Game also released a second mixtape You Know What It Is Vol. 2 through his own record label, and appeared on the video game NBA Live 2004 on a song produced by Fredwreck called "Can't Stop Me".[17] The Black Wall Street Records is a recording company founded by The Game and his half-brother Big Fase 100. ...

Rise to fame

The Game was originally signed as an artist on Aftermath Entertainment, but Interscope Records CEO Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre decided to have The Game also work with 50 Cent and G-Unit. The arrangement was to help build a growing buzz around The Game which would also fuel interest in G-Unit. Since then he made numerous cameo appearances in music videos by 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, and Fabolous. Even at this early stage in his career, he was embroiled in rap feuds associated with G-Unit, including those with Joe Budden, Ja Rule, and Memphis Bleek.

The original title of the album was Nigga Wit' An Attitude Volume 1 (as can be seen in the lyrics to "Dreams"), but an injunction filed at the request of Eazy-E's widow prevented him from using N.W.A.'s name in the album title. Dr. Dre and 50 Cent were executive producers on The Game's major label debut album, The Documentary, which spawned the hit singles "How We Do" and "Hate It or Love It" (the latter receiving 2 Grammy nominations).[18] The album debuted at number one on the Billboard music charts and was the tenth best selling album of 2005 in the United States.[19] It also debuted at number 7 in the United Kingdom and sold over 5 million copies world wide.[19] Dreams is the third official (fourth overall) single by rapper The Game, taken from his debut album, The Documentary. ...

Due to his disputes with 50 Cent, The Game had to leave Aftermath Entertainment and sign with Geffen Records, an imprint of Interscope, in order to terminate his contractual obligations with G-Unit in the summer of 2006. The rapper finished working on his sophomore album Doctor's Advocate, which was released on November 14, 2006. This album was set out by The Game to prove that he is able to make good music and be a successful artist without the help of Dr. Dre or 50 Cent. He is also working on getting his own label, The Black Wall Street Records, signed to a distribution label. While The Game originally claimed Dr. Dre would still do production work on the album in the November issue of XXL magazine,[20] he admitted in September (after the XXL interview was conducted) during an interview on radio station Power 105 that Dr. Dre would not be producing any tracks on the album. The Game's constant references and praise of Dr. Dre has led some to criticize The Game for what consider to be an obsessive love for the great producer.

The Game (far right) appeared on an episode of "Change of Heart" in 1998.

The origin of the feud with Joe Budden began when 50 Cent criticized Joe Budden's album for "lacking street credibility." Joe Budden took offense and released various insults directed at G-Unit. The Game previously did a freestyle for DJ Clue, and then Joe Budden used the end of the freestyle without notifying The Game. While on the end, Joe Budden took shots at G-Unit. In defense, The Game made several records against Joe Budden, most notoriously the track "Buddens." Joe Budden mocked The Game's appearance on the dating game show Change of Heart. The Game has consistently defended his appearance on the show. Later, at a party in New York, the rappers mutually announced their intention to stop making hostile records about each other, but The Game has subsequently suggested in songs and videos that he won the feud.[29] Image File history File links TheGame_Cheangeofheart. ...

Yukmouth

Yukmouth first met The Game at a club, and at the time Yukmouth was engaged in a feud with 50 Cent and G-Unit.[30] The Game released a diss track aimed at the rapper over the beat of "I Got 5 on It," a song which Yukmouth recorded when he was a part of Luniz.[31] Yukmouth responded with a track that mocked The Game's appearance on Change of Heart. The two later tried to bury the hatchet, due to a personal friend and even recorded a song together, named "Peace." However, the beef continued afterward, since The Game dissed Yukmouth on "Peace" (they recorded their verses separately).[32] Since then, Yukmouth responded by releasing a free style music video over Fabolous' "Breathe" single. In the video there is a look-a-like of the rapper getting robbed and beaten up. In that song, Yukmouth claimed that The Game had a tongue ring and was slapped by mogul Suge Knight. Since the West Coast Peace Conference, both rappers ended the feud. Yukmouth (born Jerold Dwight Ellis, II October 18th, 1974 in Oakland, California), is a rapper from East Oakland, California. ...

Death Row

Dr. Dre's old nemesis Suge Knight had an ongoing feud with The Game stemming from when Yukmouth claimed that The Game had been slapped by Suge Knight. The Game responded on his website, saying that if Suge Knight had ever touched him, he would be "six feet under." After the 2005 BET Awards, associates of Death Row had their invitations to a party hosted by Ciara rescinded. Supposedly, a member of Death Row had tried to steal The Game's chain. The Game stated on his Black Wall Street web site that he dislikes Suge Knight because of "the lives he has endangered." In Miami for the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards, Suge Knight was shot and wounded at Kanye West's party by an unknown gunman.[33] The Game vigorously denied involvement in the shooting, but the incident renewed efforts to pacify hip hop feuds and The Game has consequently been discouraged from attending certain events in hopes of averting retaliation.[34] Later, The Game and various representatives of California's rap cliques formed a West Coast "peace treaty" to end many rivalries between various West Coast rappers.[35] Although Suge Knight did not attend, he and The Game declared their feud over.

Roc-A-Fella Records

The feud between The Game and Roc-A-Fella Records grew out of an earlier rivalry with Memphis Bleek over the name of his label (Get Low Records), which was similar to the one The Game was previously signed to (Get Low Recordz). On the single "Westside Story", The Game raps that he "I don't do button-up shirts or drive maybachs", which was perceived as being directed towards Jay-Z. Later Jay-Z performed a freestyle called "Dear Summer" and in it he repeatedly used the word "game" which many hip-hop fans believed Jay-Z was directing towards The Game. The Game apparently felt that the rapper was trying to discredit him and made several remarks directed at Roc-A-Fella Records.

While The Game was feuding with Roc-A-Fella artists his first album featured production from Kanye West and Just Blaze, two Roc-A-Fella producers. In an interview with Ed Lover and Monie Love, The Game said the Maybach line on Westside Story was referring to Ja Rule, he also said he has a lot of respect for Jay-Z and would never take shots at a legend. Jay-Z later insisted that "game" references were just about the rap game itself, not the rapper.

Stop Snitchin, Stop Lyin is a controversial documentary released by The Game in 2006.

In early 2005 The Game began a feud with G-Unit. Even before The Game's first album was released and their feud became public there was tension between The Game and 50 Cent.[37] Soon after The Documentary's release, 50 Cent felt that the rapper was disloyal for saying he didn't want to participate in G-Unit's feud with other rappers, and even wanting to work with artists with whom G-Unit were feuding, such as Nas and Jadakiss.

50 Cent also claimed that he was not getting his proper credit for the creation of the album, including writing six of the songs. During that dispute, a member of The Game's entourage was shot after a confrontation at the Hot 97 studio in New York City.[38] After the situation between them escalated, 50 Cent and The Game decided to hold a press conference to announce their reconciliation.[39] Fans had mixed feelings as to whether the rappers created a publicity stunt designed to boost the sales of the two albums the pair had just released.[40] Nevertheless, even after the situation had apparently deflated,[41] 50 Cent and G-Unit continued to feud with The Game, denouncing his street credibility in the media and claiming that without their support, he will not score a hit from his second album. The Game responded during a performance at Summer Jam and launched a boycott called "G-Unot".[42] G-Unot is a boycott against 50 Cent and the other members of G-Unit Records.

After the performance at Summer Jam, The Game responded with 300 Bars and Runnin', a hard hitting diss going at G-Unit as well as members of Roc-A-Fella Records on the mixtape You Know What It Is Vol. 3. Many of The Game's fans felt that the diss song was the pivotal rebuttal that gave The Game the advantage in his beef with 50 Cent and G-Unit. While it addresses his labelmates, The Game made clear that his attacks was also meant for Memphis Bleek, Benzino, and the Young Gunz. The Game chose to distance himself from addressing Jay-Z negatively on the song. 50 Cent responded through his "Piggy Bank" music video, which features The Game as a Mr. Potato Head doll and parodies many other rivals.

In the song he speaks about Game's fallout with his half brother Big Fase 100. Along with this, G-Unit started to respond on numerous underground mixtapes. G-Unit member Spider Loc, one of the newest members of G-Unit, began dissing The Game soon after. The Game responded with "240 Bars (Spider Joke)",[43] a song mainly aimed at Spider Loc, but also addressing Tony Yayo and rap group M.O.P.[44] Stop Snitchin - Stop Lyin is the third mixtape album by rapper The Game against G-Unit. ...

Lil' Eazy-E has since directed numerous diss songs targeting the rapper and expressed his anger over what he felt was The Game misusing his father's name. The Game responded by claiming that Lil' Eazy-E is trying to establish himself off the success he had made since releasing The Documentary.[49] The Game responded on "120 Bars" where he claimed that Lil Eazy-E doesn't write his own lyrics.[50] However, The Game states on the same track that he would rather not feud with Lil Eazy-E, due to the deep respect he feels for his father.
