The Game Doesn’t Want To Be Called A ‘Gangster Rapper’

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 03/16/10

The GameCompton rapper The Game doesn't want to be referred to as a "gangster rapper?" True, says a recent TMZ report.

The rapper (real name: Jayceon Taylor) is currently going through a civil lawsuit, stemming a 2007 altercation where he allegedly punched and pulled a gun on a man after the two got into an argument during a pick-up basketball game in Los Angeles.

Because of the stunt, Game was charged with three felonies, but was only convicted of one as part of a plea deal in which he pleaded no contest.

He was sentenced to 60 days in jail, but was released just eight days after turning himself in.

Well, in new court documents in the civil suit, The Game is referred to as either a "gangster" and/or "gangster rapper" numerous times. He wants those references removed, because he feels it would cause prejudice among the jury.

Additionally, Game doesn't want his lyrics brought up in the trial either.

    He's an emo-thug.

    He stopped being a "gangsta rapper" when he made a drunken love song for Dr. Dre & got a butterfly inked on his face.

    He should do some songs with Kid Cudi.

    I'm scratching my head on this one. I wish Game would be one of those mythical rappers. I wish he just do songs and no interviews or statements because he flip flops uncontrollably.

    Word @ anzee11

    If Game would simply make albums and keep his mouth shut otherwise, he wouldn't catch half the shit people give him.
