Born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, two-time GRAMMY® Award nominated multiplatinum Compton rapper, songwriter, producer, actor, and entrepreneur. The Game locked down a place in the pantheon alongside greats of both coasts by a combination of bar-for-bar bravado, provocative observation, hard-hitting hooks, and sharp introspection. And now the prolific rapper returns with his 9th album fittingly titled, Born 2 Rap.
The Game’s prior album 1992 debuted #1 on Billboard’s “Top Rap Albums Chart” and tied Drake for most #1 album debuts since the chart began in 2004. Also, the album gave The Game his eighth #1 on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart” tying him for third with 2Pac and Lil Wayne. He started this impressive legacy with doubleplatinum 2005 full-length debut, The Documentary. It not only bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered GRAMMY® nods in the categories of “Best Rap Song” and “Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group,” but it also emerged as a classic avowed by Pitchfork among the “Top 50 Albums of 2005”. The 2006 followup Doctor’s Advocate retained his spot at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and went platinum. Maintaining positions in the Top 10, he ignited a prolific string of blockbuster releases—L.A.X. , The R.E.D. Album , Jesus Piece , Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf , The Documentary 2 , The Documentary 2.5. , and 1992 .
2018 saw a trio of recent singles achieve RIAA certifications with “100” [feat. Drake] platinum and “El Chapo” with Skrillex and “All Eyez” [feat. Jeremih] both gold as his total stream tally exceeded 3 Billion across platforms. Television and film credits span everything from Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! to the upcoming All-Star Weekend directed by Academy® Award winner Jamie Foxx and co-starring Robert Downey Jr. and Benicio del Toro.
