Was 50 Cent lying in diss songs when he said The Game was once a male stripper? According to The Game‘s stepfather, 50 wasn’t lying.
For years 50 Cent has said The Game was once a stripper by the name of Doja and on the cover art for the classic mixtape G-Unit Radio 21 an image of The Game in a g-string could be seen. Many including myself always thought the image was photoshopped, and that made us take 50‘s story with a grain of salt. But according to The Game‘s step dad, 50 Cent wasn’t lying.
Today Pitchfork released a video about the Hip Hop lifestyle in Compton and The Game‘s stepfather Hodari Sababu is featured. Hodari gives us a tour around Compton and around 19 minutes into the clip he drops a shocker by revealing the truth. He says that he and The Game‘s mother started a male strip club back in the day and Game (real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor) worked there a few nights as a stripper. After revealing this news, he then says “50 won’t let him forget it.”
Watch the video that has to have 50 Cent laughing his ass off below.
