Rapper the Game Testifies Against 40 Glocc: ‘He Pulled a Gun on Me and My Son’

Crime and courtsThe Game testified Wednesday that he confronted fellow rapper 40 Glocc during a 2012 party in the Hollywood Hills because he was weary of the other singer posting negative content about him on the Internet.

“I just got tired of him threatening me on the Internet all the time,” the 35-year-old rapper said under questioning by his attorney, Lonnie Brandon.

The Game testified that 40 Glocc brandished a handgun at the beginning of the melee and made combative gestures with his hands. He also said that 40 Glocc threatened him with a firearm on a previous occasion.

“He pulled a gun on me and my son,” The Game said.

Asked by Brandon what he meant when he told 40 Glocc, “Let’s finish it,” The Game replied, “Just fight.”

40 Glocc, whose real name is Lawrence White, sued The Game in October 2012. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bruguera is hearing the non-jury trial of his lawsuit.

40 Glocc previously testified he was leaving the July 7, 2012, party when he heard someone say, “Turn up.” He said he turned around and saw The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor.

The Game, a Grammy nominee and prominent member of the West Coast hip hop scene, asked one of the men with him for a handgun, 40 Glocc said.

“He cocked it, put a bullet in the chamber and said, ‘You heard me, I said turn up,”‘ 40 Glocc said. “I turned and ran. I got chased down.”

But The Game said 40 Glocc irked him by posting a photo of The Game’s then-fiancee and children on the Internet. Asked by Brandon how he felt today about the incident three years after it occurred, The Game replied, “I am upset.”

The Game said he was born and raised in Compton and joined a gang when he was 13 years old. He said both of his parents also were gang members, as were brothers of his who died in gang violence. He said he was once shot seven times in a gang-related attack.

The Game said he obtained his nickname when he was about 6 years old and became proficient in many sports. He said he graduated as the class valedictorian at Compton High School and won a scholarship to Washington State University. However, he said the scholarship was revoked when he was caught selling drugs on campus.

The Game said he became a rapper after his then-girlfriend became pregnant with his oldest son.

Earlier today, Brian Perry, a casting associate for the MTV series “Punk’d,” testified that he was present at the party and witnessed the confrontation between The Game and 40 Glocc.

He said 40 Glocc was bleeding and that The Game was the aggressor .

“Mr. Taylor was doing the punching and kicking,” Perry said.

Several other men were with The Game and one displayed a handgun, then asked the rapper, “Should I do him?,” according to Perry.

The Game did not respond, Perry said. The incident ended when The Game got into car and left, according to Perry.

Brandon maintains 40 Glocc is a member of a Colton street gang.

The judge said she wants final arguments submitted in written briefs rather than given orally. She said she will then take the case under submission.
