Jayceon Terrell Taylor (born November 29, 1979), known by his gang name The Game (increasingly just Game) is a rapper from Compton, California. He was discovered by Dr Dre, who decided he should be taken under the wing of 50 Cent. This wasn't a particularly good idea, since the two had a big argument and became Evil Former Friends for the better part of 12 years. He has released 7 albums, and for the 5th - Jesus Piece, he reconciled with Dr. Dre (but not 50; that came four years later). He is a member of the Blood Gang.

Tropes applicable to him or his music:
- Call-Back: Refers to his three previous albums at the time on "The City" from The R.E.D. Album
- Refers to his feature on Kanye West's "Crack Music" on "Jesus Piece" (which features West and Common).
- Cluster F-Bomb: As expected from a rapper, The Game takes it up to 11.
- Damn, It Feels Good to Be a Gangster: In particular, a Blood. One egregious example being The R.E.D. Album and specifically its first single "Red Nation". Despite his claims that the "R.E.D." in the title stands for "RE-Dedication" and not a reference to his Blood Gang affiliation, the album cover is black and red and "Red Nation", featuring fellow Blood-affiliated rapper Lil Wayne on the chorus, is a love letter to the Bloods' red color motif with a few open shout outs to the gang itself.
- Dream Team:
- Evil Former Friend: 50 Cent.
- Gangsta Rap
- N-Word Privileges: Duh.
- Intercourse with You
- Loads and Loads of Characters: His albums are filled with features; which is another criticism many have of him.
- Shout-Out: Gives so many of these that he often gets criticized for it.
- Slut-Shaming: "Wouldn't Get Far".
- Take That!: Much like his former associate 50 Cent, he's well known for delivering these. Their feud had plenty of this content.
