Game brought out his three kids for the filming of the music video for his Chris Brown-assisted single, “Pot of Gold,” in Los Angeles on Tuesday (June 28), where he takes a walk back to his humble beginnings in Compton.
The boys at Rap-Up.com caught up with the rapper, as he filmed the clip with director Bryan Barber in an abandoned East L.A. residence, explaining the concept behind the visual and song.
“The video is kinda walking back through the days when I didn’t have anything, taking my son with me and showing him how we used to live,” Game told the mag/website, adding that his son is still in disbelief after seeing where his famous dad grew up.
“My mom took my son back to Compton and showed them the house I grew up in, that used to be our on the block,” the rapper continued. “My son just couldn’t believe. He fights it ‘to this day, like ‘My dad’s not from here, he’s not from this place. It’s dirty around here.’ He just doesn’t know.”
Rap-Up.com says that in one of the scenes is filmed in an attic adorned with Tupac and Biggie posters, where Game spits verses about reminiscing about his earlier days with dreams of being a rap star.
Then later, at least one of his kids makes a cameo. His son Harlem is hopping into Game’s yellow Chevy Impala.
