Growing up in a gang-infested neighborhood before becoming a foster child, The Game, born Jayceon Taylor, knew that “if I ever had a child, I would raise my family differently.” Now dad to sons Harlem Caron, 5 ½, and King Justice, 22 months, The Game says that’s “just what he’s going to do.”
Refusing to reflect upon his own experiences as a boy, the rapper explains that he “lives my childhood through my children.”
“If I would have had a wonderful childhood, it would have been the same way. I understand fatherhood. I know that when you have a child, you accept the responsibility whether you like it or not; it’s just what it is. If you’re going to have children, you have to take care of your kids. Me, I’m a father figure. I’m great at displaying affection for my children, and I show them how much I love them all the time.”
The Game is currently on tour, promoting his latest record, LAX.
