The Game Turns Himself In

Rapper The Game turned himself in last night (March 2nd 2008) to begin serving a 60-day weapons possession prison sentence. 28-year-old Jayceon Taylor was sentenced to a 2-month prison sentence last month after he pleaded no contest to a felony charge of possession of a firearm in a school zone.

Dozens of friends and supporters showed up with the rapper rocking “Free the Game” t-shirts as he turned himself in, accompanied by his lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley. Game will reportedly be held in a separate area from the general population. In addition to serving the 60 days, The Game was sentenced to 150 hours of community service and three years probation.

It is rumored that the rapper probably won’t even serve his full term, but once he is released, he is expected to continue work on his upcoming album, titled LAX., which will reportedly be his final album before “going into retirement.” The album features production from Dr. Dre, Cool & Dre, Scott Storch and others.
