Jayceon Terrell Taylor – The Game – is an American rapper who was born November 29, 1979 in Los Angeles, California. His current estimated net worth is $25 million. The Game grew up in a notoriously dangerous neighborhood that was run by the street gang known as "The Crips." The Game, however, swore his allegiance to a rival gang, "The Bloods." In trouble frequently during his teen years, The Game turned to music and, in 2003, signed his first recording contract with 50 Cent's G-Unit record label. Shortly thereafter, he left that company to form his own record label, Black Wall Street Records. The Game scored a knockout in 2005 with his debut album, The Documentary." It opened at Number One on Billboard 200 and a single from that album, "Hate It or Love It" received two Grammy nominations. The Game has become influential in the rap community and is credited with being a driving force in his attempt to resuscitate West Coast Hip-Hop and restore its mainstream status.
