Compton rapper The Game reported himself to authorities this weekend, to begin serving his 60 day jail sentence. Sunday, March 2, the Geffen Records star reportedly accepted his arrested without incident, and began fulfilling the sentence which was determined in a Los Angeles courtroom on February 11, after a no contest plea. The rapper is in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility.
The sentence is in response to incident a year earlier, in February 2006, whereby The Game admitted to assaulting two men and aiming a pistol at one during a basketball game at The Rita Walters Educational Complex.
The rapper is currently working on his album L.A.X. The work is said to be a reunion with mentor Dr. Dre after a storied label-change and falling out in 2006. This album, which had been previously said to be The Game ‘s final, also may sport an Aftermath imprint yet again.
At the time of his detainment, The Game ‘s label The Black Wall Street was also in negotiations for distribution between Warner Brothers, Interscope and Sony. It is presumed that these negotiations will be tabled until the rapper’s release from jail, expected in early May.
According to TMZ.com, the rapper will serve his time removed from general population, in an isolated cell.
