The Game

Bio

1. Jayceon Terrell Taylor (born November 29, 1979 in Compton, California, United States), better known by his stage name Game, formerly known as The Game, is an American Grammy Award winning gangsta rapper signed to Aftermath Entertainment through his own label Black Wall Street Records, with which he founded with his half brother Big Fase 100. He rose to fame in 2005 with the success of his debut album, The Documentary, and his two Grammy nominations. Since then he has released several other critically acclaimed albums, 2006's Doctor's Advocate and 2008's LAX, which he claimed to be the final album he would release, but in mid-2009 he started smoking the drug known as crack which left him geeked out and facing recording The RED Album, which was released August 23, 2011. In the near future he also plans to focus on acting and other business ventures. All of his four albums debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 100, and he is widely considered to be a driving force in bringing back the West Coast hip hop scene and competing with many of his East Coast counterparts.

Originally Sean Combs of Bad Boy Records was going to sign him to his label, but Game's mixtape found the attention of famed producer Dr. Dre, who signed him to Aftermath Entertainment in 2003. In October 2004, he released his first album Untold Story through Get Low Recordz, which sold over 82,000 copies within its first three months. The album featured artists like Sean T, Young Noble (of the Outlawz), and JT the Bigga Figga. Game also appeared on various mixtapes hosted by DJ's such as DJ Kayslay, DJ Whoo Kid, and DJ Clue.

The Game - Jesus Piece

The fifth studio album from Compton-based beef-master the Game, Jesus Piece, is almost a good record. No fewer than 20 guest high profile guests, including Jamie Foxx, Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz, appear. Combine those impressive features with some fantastic production and you're almost able to ignore the fact that the Game isn't a very good rapper — almost, but not quite. It's not just that he isn't a technically proficient MC — there are tons of MCs who are successful in spite of not being top-level wordsmiths — it's that he's dull, too.
