Rapper The Game learned yesterday that he is to serve
two months in a California jail. The sentence stems from a no contest
plea from a firearms charge in 2007. In February of that year, the Geffen Records star got into an altercation with a another man at Rita Walters Education Learning Complex in Los Angeles, and resulted in battery and the rapper removing a pistol from his car and threatening the victim.
In addition to the two months of jail time, The Game received
three years of probation and 150 hours of court-ordered community
service. According to reports, other charges were dropped in the case.
The sentences is said to begin next week.
The incident comes after reports that The Game and mentor Dr. Dre would be reuniting on the rapper’s next album, L.A.X.
Questions have risen already due to statements that this would be the
rapper’s last album, after three official releases, and nearly
half-a-dozen unauthorized releases. Geffen Records and Black Wall Street have yet to comment or release a statement on the incident.
