You’re an entertainer that’s pulled your self up by your bootstraps from the ghetto to the limelight, beating the odds along the way and proving your detractors wrong. You’re new album has just been released and is sure to be a bit hit, allowing you to pass your success on to your family, friends and young son. And you’ve just walked off the stage from a set on Late Show with David Letterman, thereby proving you are as on top as it gets.
So what do you do to celebrate?
Walk out of the Letterman building, jump in a cab, tell the driver that you are an undercover police cop, and demand he run a series of red lights for 13 blocks before getting pulled over and arrested by the cops, THAT what!
The NYPD say the 26-year-old rapper (real name is Jayceon Taylor) did just that Thursday night and faces a charge of impersonating a police officer, police Sgt. Kevin Hayes said. Game’s attorney denied the accusation, saying the hip hop cops were tailing his client throughout his stay in the Big Apple and that the cabbie was simply a bad driver.
In an unrelated case, a partner in the recording studio started by The Game was arrested for allegedly laundering money for gangsters.
This is the best album promo ever. Doctor’s Advocate, out now, get it!
