The Game, real name Jayceon Taylor, felt unappreciated by two of his kids on Father’s Day. The rapper took to social media on Monday (June 21) to express his disappointment.
“It really bothers me because I know what type of heart I’ve got and I know the type of person that I am,” The Game told his social media fans. “I take care of a lot of people, and I do for a lot of people,” the rapper shared. “And I’m not talking about strangers or nothing (sic) like that. I’m talking about family [and] friends.”
The Game received a Father’s Day present from his oldest son, Harlem. He also spent quality time with his eldest. The Game’s kids with Tiffney Cambridge did not so much as text their dad on Sunday, according to the rapper.
“As a father, I’ve always went (sic) above and beyond for my children and even the people around me,” The Game shared with his social media supporters. “They should take notice,” he added. “You should understand that Father’s Day is a very important day,” The Game further explained.
“Everybody goes all out on Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is one of my days where I’m like, ‘You’d better show up for the mothers in your lives.’ I always do. I always go above and beyond. But Father’s Day, for some reason, around the board, overall, it gets a little disrespectful.”
The Game told his fans that he did not mean to be petty with his video post. “I’m just tired of the disrespect,” the celebrity father said. “It don’t make no (sic) sense,” he added. “To be perfectly honest, that sh*t kind of really cut deep in a n*gg*s soul. I know, as a father, I know what I put in.”
“Ever since my first son was born, I know the amount of work I put in as a father. And even for my younger two [kids]. I’ve always been there. So I know who I am as a father. Can’t nobody tell me that I’m not the type of father who deserves praise [and] deserves notice.”
The Game and Tiffney Cambridge have two kids, Cali Dream and King Justice, together. Harlem is the rapper’s son from a previous relationship.
