Sneak Peek: Game on ‘Behind the Music’

Jayceon Taylor

Game shares his rise from being a gangbanger in Compton to becoming one of the West Coast’s biggest hip-hop stars on VH1’s “Behind the Music.” Born the son of a postal worker and poet/hair stylist, Jayceon Taylor describes a rough childhood filled with drugs and violence, with testimonies from his parents, grandmother, and fiancée.

During the one-hour episode, he shares harrowing stories of his father’s troubled past, including the times he abused his mother and sexually assaulted his 11-year-old stepdaughter. “He turned into a monster overnight,” recalled Game.

Jayceon was placed in foster care at age 7 and had dreams of being an NBA star until he got involved with the Bloods and started selling marijuana. “They offer you everything that you ever wanted in your life—a lot of money, camaraderie,” he said.

After losing his best friend to gang violence, he started to reevaluate his decisions. Find out how he turned his life around when “Behind the Music: Game” airs Thursday at 9 p.m. Watch a 9-minute sneak peek below.

    Rap-UP bloggers!

    If you really don’t give a damn, just ignore this comment…

    But…If you happen to come across a comment by a blogger named “brainfood.com” and their comment is pretty much negative…kill ‘em with kindness! It HATES kindness! Do not be alarmed…it’s someone who is mad at me and wants to spread more hate than it can with it’s own name. Pretty wicked, huh? I can’t deny, it’s clever, but I know it’s weak point!

    It has no argument against positivity! It only knows how to be judgemental, picky, and negative! You wanna shut it up? Say somethin’ positive! It burns ‘em like acid!

    For those who don’t give a crap (and you do that’s why ya’ll keep respondin’ to it’s negative comments), forget you read this. To those who are tired of it talkin’ about Lil kim bein’ better than Nicki and basically keepin’ people fightin’? Just say somethin’ positive. It’ll eventually either stop or be forced to say positive things back.

    Sorry if I wasted you time as that was not my intention. Keep bein’ positive!

    I always thought when you do a Behind The Music, it pretty much means your career is over. The Documentary was the only album that was good from The Game.
