The Game is Up!

2/11/2008 6:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Game has pleaded no contest to a felony charge of possession of a firearm in a school zone.

After he entered his plea, a Los Angeles County judge immediately sentenced him to 60 days in jail, 150 hours of community service and three years probation.

The rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, faced three felony counts for making criminal threats and exhibiting a firearm in the presence of a peace officer. Two counts were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

In February 2007, Taylor allegedly got into a heated altercation with a player from an opposing team during a pick-up basketball game at a school in South L.A. After allegedly punching the other player, prosecutors said Taylor then pulled a gun from his Escalade and threatened to shoot the victim.

He has until March 3 to turn himself in.

#9 - The tat on his face is the team logo for the Los Angeles Dodgers. I have been a hard core Dodgers fan since 1981 and I wear the logo proudly, but I would NEVER, EVER tattoo it on my face!

Anyone with a corporate freaking logo tattoo'd on their face needs be put in jail for that alone.

Sick of these sell out jock rappers. They have no soul...just violent, macho, hate-filled mainstream idiots with no talent.

Claire - the LA on his face is for the MLB baseball team, the Dodgers, not the city. Baseball season is going to be in full swing (no pun intended) when he gets out of jail, so good luck with the whole s-e-x thing. If he's such a fan he tattoos it on his face, baseball is probably going to take precedence over anything else.

Can anyone in the rap community be an example of hard work, education, strong male fatherly example other than a flat out thug. Please stop this madness, because you can't blame this behavior on the white man.
