The Game

Charged with Pulling Gun During Game

6/4/2007 6:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0604_thegame_bn_fm-1Rapper The Game has been charged with making a criminal threat and with possession of a firearm in a school zone during a Feb. 24 pickup basketball game, according to the L.A. District Attorney's office.

The rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, allegedly got into an altercation with a player on an opposing team during a basketball game at the Rita Walters Educational Learning Complex in South Los Angeles. After allegedly punching the victim, cops say The Game pulled a gun from his red Escalade and threatened to pop the victim. Not very sportsmanlike!

The 27-year-old is also charged with one count of exhibiting a firearm in the presence of an officer. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday for the three felonies.

Just last month, LAPD arrested The Game at his Glendale home, after police executed a search warrant. He was released on $50,000 bail. If convicted, The Game is facing more than five years in state prison.

First off....I like rap.

But....... When are these guy's going to realize that they are looked up to by kids all around the world. Whether these rappers like it or not, they are role models. Everything they do is mimicked by kids everywhere. I see it first hand as a a counselor in the inner city, it's absolutely heart wrenching.

Like I said earlier, I do like the music, predominately old school, but I do enjoy rap. I do agree it's a thin line about what you're putting in your lyrics, and I also agree it's the parents responsibility, but.................. it does not help when all these kids see is violence in every aspect of their lives. At home, on the t.v, in the music. It's no wonder we have a ever increasing violent youth movement going on.

Well he needs to go for those fiveyears he will probably spend less time his problem is he really has a big head to big for his head and body ,Also he's young and needs to learn that his fame lasts as long as his rap song and his last rap song wasn't that good he had to have help and plenty of scenery(women almost nude)like his name his game is almost over he's stupid he better enjoy it for now.

Just goes to show; you can take the man out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the man. No matter where he goes or what he does, he's still a thug...
