The Game is definitely one of the most popular and recognizable rappers in the Hip-Hop world. He is highly successful but it wasn’t always that way for the rapper.
He had a tough upbringing, growing up in Compton, California, where the Game was subjected to gang life early in his life. The Game took to Twitter and looked back on his days of extreme poverty, revealing that he only had $26 to his name and was scared to spend it. He also recalled sleeping in his car during the hard times.
I remember a time when I had $26 to my name & was scared to spend it. Didn’t know where the next meal was coming from. Slept in my car in Hollywood just to wake up in the action & pass out my demo…. never give up, your dreams live around the corner from your struggle !!!
The Game went on to produce several albums, including his No. 1 Billboard 200 debut The Documentary. While speaking to HipHopDX in March, the rapper confirmed he will be coming out of retirement.
“It fucking sucks there’s no real substance in music anymore, but we have to go through it until it’s fruitful again. Logic is working with Madlib. And of course, Kendrick and Cole, and then I’m coming back again. Shit’s coming.
Kendrick and J. Cole can only sit quiet for so long, so you’ll get some good shit. And again, I like the fucking Polo Gs, the Pooh Shiestys, and of course Lil Baby, I love it. I’m in my car, I throw on Lil Baby, but everybody’s not Lil Baby. So again, we got to pick and choose what has substance.”
We certainly applaud the Game’s determination to never give up despite hard times and finally making it big in the Hip-Hop world. We will have to see when he will release his next album as fans are undoubtedly eagerly waiting for it.
