The Game or simply Game, is an American rapper and actor. Game is best known as a rapper in the West Coast hip hop scene. Discovered by Dr. Dre who listened to the mixtape and signed him to his Aftermath Entertainment label in 2003. He rose to fame in 2005 with the success of his debut album "The Documentary" (2005) and "Doctor's Advocate" (2006). The Recording Industry Association of America certified his album "The Documentary" double platinum in March 2005 and it has sold over five million copies worldwide.

A rising artist in the 2000s, Game is considered to be a driving force in bringing back the West Coast hip hop scene into the mainstream and competing with many of his East Coast counterparts Game was placed into G-Unit by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. Due to his disputes with 50 Cent, Game left Aftermath Entertainment and signed with Geffen Records, another label under Universal Music Group's Interscope-Geffen-A&M division, to terminate his contractual obligations with G-Unit in the summer of 2006.

The Game's current album, his 5th studio release Jesus Piece has features from Lil Wayne, Big Sean, J. Cole, Jamie Foxx, Wiz Khalifa, Tyga and Chris Brown among others. The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 selling 87,000 copies in the United States.

Game also recently announced he will be starting a new record label titled Rolex Records.There will be an official tour documentary being produced for all 15 cities, as he travels the country he will be looking to sign new Australian talent.
