In a touching response to his oldest son’s high school graduation, The Game pays tribute to him.
Harlem Caron Taylor, Game’s oldest son, graduated from Calabasas High School with a high school diploma.
It was fascinating to me when your mother @___aleska told me she was pregnant with you, and me and my girlfriend had no idea what to do or how to proceed…,” he wrote. At the time, I told her I would be a millionaire by the time you were born. The cap was 100% at the time.
Watching Shyne on “106 & Park” made Game decide to learn to rap. “It was the time that I decided to do it,” he said. He became better with practice and Harlem on his side, so he was signed to Dr. Dre before his first child was born.
“I have no idea how I was able to move as fast as I did to secure that deal but I did it,” he wrote to Harlem. From your birth to your graduation from 8th grade to now, I have given you all I have and even shedding tears would not be worthy of the deepest joys I feel for you.
As I have always supported you, you have been more than I could ever have imagined. Your mother and I see you as a true champion for graduating from CALABAS HIGH-SCHOOL CLASS OF 2021. I am incredibly proud of you. Thank you for everything & I love you more than life,” he added.
Game has credited Harlem, who appears on the album cover of Documentary, as the reason he left Compton and changed his life.
A bullet hole was discovered in his car seat as he was preparing to leave the house with his son, he once told NME. “I moved from Compton to Beverly Hills the next day and bought a condo.”
As well as being an acclaimed rapper, The Game has a son and a daughter, one of whom he congratulated for graduating in subsequent posts.
