The Game Net Worth $20 Million
Jayceon Terrell Taylor was born on November 29, 1979, in Los Angeles, California. The Game wasn’t raised in a very good and calm atmosphere – his native district was controlled by a dangerous street gang “The Crips”. Life for The Game became even more difficult during his youth because of his loyalty to another gang called “The Bloods” which was one of the main rivals to “The Crips”.
Though Jaceyon was even planning to associate his future with sports as he was a good basketball player, he finally decided to try himself as a musician. Actually there is no wonder about that – after graduation from school The Game attended Washington State University, but was expelled as he was considered to be addicted to drugs. So he had to return home and start selling drugs around his hometown. No matter how sad this would be, it was the beginning of increasing Jaceyon Taylor’s net worth. However, another accident made everything worse – as he became active in the gang life, he was shot during a drug transaction and was in hospital in a coma for three days. Then his brother was able to introduce Jaceyon to hip hop music, and that’s how Taylor started increasing his net worth as an artist.
The first contract which should have increased Taylor’s net worth was signed in 2003. The owner of the record label G-Unit was the famous rapper 50 Cent. However, soon after that The Game decided to form a new record label by himself and called it “Black Wall Street Records”. His debut album entitled “The Documentary” appeared in stores in 2005 and definitely became a hit. The next one called “Hate It or Love It” also was a real success – it received nominations for a Grammy Awardand became extremely popular. Since then The Game has sold more than 10 million copies of his five different albums. This successful career has increased Taylor’s total amount of net worth and made him one of the best-known rappers.
Of course, Game’s net worth was increased because of his career as an actor too, but still he is mostly known for his great musical talent and amazing songs. His name today is associated with Timbaland, Kanye West and Nate Dogg.
