According to police sources, officers are currently transporting him to a station, where he will be booked on charges of making criminal threats. We're told he's being extremely cooperative.


The Game, a multi-platinum selling rap star, was formerly a part of 50 Cent's G Unit group.

miss j....that may well be the way their life is....Why do they want to continue to stew in their own negativity....?
The violence and HATE TALK in the majority of rap is an extremely dangerous and irresponsible message to send to the younger set...those who idolize them.
They don't encourage kids to try to get out of that way of life and to make something of themselves....and so it continues...They are keeping their own down.....but continue to blame everyone else...All rap is, is a rough and tough (acting) pity party.

I agree we should be more wise how we choose our words look at what happen to Imus. We should be carefull of the energy we give out because it comes back to us 2 fold as well. Unfortuantely these rappers dont get it , they are easy targets and they need to be more leaders to there communtiy and help give teenagers A positive image.(Let Us Pray On That)

Teach the kids/teens how to man up and not be influenced by artists. Don't blame the rappers. It's their life. Not yours.

Well at least he has on underwear which is a whole lot more than I can say for the "perfect" white celebrities like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. Good they don't have any skeletons in their closets like black celebrities. I wonder which one will stay in jail longer, the Game or Paris?? I have a good idea about this one.

#14...THANK YOU!! I was in the middle of writing the same thing but had to get off the computer. I am so incredibly SICK of the racist, ignorant remarks!!! Why get on this thing if all you are going to do is race bash? Your racism is fueld by fear and if you think it isn't then take a look at why you feel that way (your parents? Something bad happened to you and you were so stupid about the whole thing you decided to blame an entire race of people? etc.) GET OVER YOUR SELVES!!! Nobody is going anywhere so you might as well deal with it! TRY LOVING SOMEONE INSTEAD OF HATING SOMEONE...YOU ASSHOLES!!!

SO YOU DON'T THINK KIDS ASPIRE TO BE WHAT THEY SEE, MS J.? YOU NEVER DREAMED OF BEING A SOMETHING LIKE A SINGER OR TALK SHOW HOST WHEN YOU WERE SMALL? THE KIDS SEE THE THESE RAPPERS DOING IT AND THEY FEEL THAT THEY HAVE TO LIVE THAT WAY TO GET WHAT THE RAPPER HAS! AND FOR BLACK KIDS AND HISPANIC KIDS, THAT MAY BE ALL THEY HAVE. THE MUSIC, THE HOOD LIFE STYLE,SO THEY FEEL THAT THEY MUST LIVE IT OUT LIKE THE ARTIST.THE ARTIST PUTS THE TRUTH OUT THERE, BUT RARELY OFFERS A WAY OF VERSATLITY.INSTEAD OF HANGIN' AND BANGIN'----PUSH HIM TO GO HARD INTO SOMETHING POSITIVE. SAY SOMETHING WORTH HEARING! DO YOU THINK THAT ALL THE BLACKS THAT WENT THRU THE HARDDEST STRUGGLES OF SLAVERY INTO FREEDOM DID IT SO THE CURRENT BLACK GENERATION OF TODAY CAN SABATOGE IT? IT WAS ALL IN VAIN?YEA UR RIGHT,SIS,IT IS THEIR LIFE---SOMETIME IN HISTROY, SOMEONE DIED IN GAINING THE RIGHTS FOR OUR CURRENT GENERATION TO SELF-DESTRUCT B/C OF THE TALKING HEADS(A$$E$) DON'T KNOW HOW TO ACT NOW THAT THEY HAVE WHAT THEY HAVE.NO MORE BEIN' POOR!AND I AM NOT SUPPORTING ANOTHER ARTIST WHEN I CAN SUPPORT MYSELF AND FAMILY--WHILE HE'S SUPPORTING THE LIFESTYLE OF BEING A PIMP, BEING A CHEATER, KILLER, YOU NAME IT. AND AS A "BABYS' MAMA" OF 2 CHILDREN FATHERED BY A BLACK MAN THAT WANTED TO LIVE THAT LIFE(GOT CAUGHT UP) THAT LEAD TO HIM EVENTUALLY TAKING AWAY FROM HIS FAMILY. RAP MAKES THE GRIMEY SEEM SO GOOD,DON'T YOU THINK? THE KIDS ARE SPONGES. AND HIP HOP /RAP HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE "FORBIDDEN" AND NOW I SEE WHY! AS FOR THE CLASSIC HIP HOPPERS(BAHAMADIA, RUN DMC ETC.)THAT'S WHERE HIP HOP IS. TRUTH FOLLOWED BY EMPOWERMENT THEN TO MOVEMENT! DO YOU EVEN 1/2 WAY UNDERSTAND?

miss j    

I under stand your point Qurse. However, isn't it more realistic to teach our kids right from wrong, change the old ways, and give them the ability to see that they don't have to be a gangsta? Some just fall through, i know that that is just the way it is.

It is funny that the racist on this site call us blacks ignorant. If you believe all black people are like the people you see on tv, then i hate to be the one to tell you this but you are stupid. Anyone who is foolish enough to believe all black people are like the gangster rappers and the video girls is retarded. There is life beyond what entertainment industry presents to you. The industry shows a small fraction of our people and you are ignorant if you believe that is all we are. We are doctors, lawyers, engineers, students and so much more, but you don’t want to see this. It more fun for you to think that you are better than us all, but you might believe it, but it will never be true.

Criticize the game if you want, but please do not group us all and call us monkeys based on some people’s actions. It is unnecessary and hurtful. I come to this site for news and it takes the fun out of it when my people and i are insulted without cause.

P.S. Not all our men dress like that.

You gotta remember Ama most of these people are middle aged white folks who are uncultured and somewhat close-minded about rap and hip-hop in the first place. Everyone is a product of their environment, and if anything, Game should be given props for making it out. I'm sure Game has problems just like any of us, and most folks if not all I'm sure couldn't even fathum having to grow up in his shoes in the first place. MOST Rappers don't glamorize negative things, they shed light on to it and people take from that what they will, wether it be relatable or fascinating, I myself am a white guy who is from the hip-hop generation with most of my friends being black, so any kind of retardedness won't be coming from me. I'm a Game fan and I enjoy his music, I think he's a talented young dude and I listen to him for his poetry put behind gritty beats.. That's what Rap is. With success comes tribulation, it happens to actors, entertainers, etc of all nationalities.

Like Chappelle says, "Hate Hate Hate!" LOL.

WHAT EVER    

It is so amazing this story just broke and you piteous people are crying how he is going to play the race card. What is the race card? Is that what your hero Paris Hilton is using?
For those who said they don't know him and he is just some BLACK person who made a little money and doesn't know what to do because he was so poor as a child. Here is just a little information for you poor trailer trash with no lives. Jayceon has never said he was arrested because he is black or a rap star. His siblings graduated from Brentwood Prep and Columbia university and Columbia Law school. He came from a family with money and you people have to understand the industry. A poor rapper sells better than one who comes from money and never straved or went with out. So you people will see in the end. Why don't yal as Britney Spears says get a grip on reality. Why don't you people write about something you know about like that rock star arrested for murder, he stabbed to death his ex-girlfriends new lover. UHM what do you know poor white trash
go figure.
