Rapper and actor The Game was born Jayceon Terrell Taylor on November 29, 1979, in Los Angeles, California. Taylor had a rocky childhood and adolescence, eventually leaving college in favor of a life of drugs and crime. When a drug deal went awry, Game was shot five times and went into a coma for a number of days. He turned his hospital stay into a learning process, reviewing all of the classic hip-hop albums and studying various patterns so that he could become as successful as the artists he listened to. Eventually, he and his brother Big Fase founded a label, and together released the mixtape You Know What It Is Vol. 1 in 2002. Game eventually signed with Aftermath Entertainment, Dr. Dre’s label, in 2003, and in 2004, he released his album The Documentary with help from Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. The album went to #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, featuring the singles “How We Do” and “Hate It or Love It”.
Game would go on to release Untold Story in 2004, selling just under 100,000 copies in the first month, followed by Doctor’s Advocate in 2006, LAX in 2008, The R.E.D. Album in 2011, and Jesus Piece in 2012. Throughout his career, Game has been nominated for a variety of awards, including two Grammy nominations for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group, both for “Hate It or Love it” with 50 Cent. In 2008, he won at the Ozone Awards for Best West Coast Rap Artist.
