West Coast rapper and former G-unit member, The Game, recently opened up about what fans can expect from his upcoming VH1 "Behind the Music" special, admitting his real life will finally be exposed.
Known for bringing fans closer into its featured artist's lifestyle, Game admits the VH1 special will prove just how much of a family man he truly is.
"The number one thing they're going to find out is that I've grown," he says. "When people think of The Game, they just think of this mean face, of my background and bullet wounds and the coma and the gangbanging, and they let that define me... But there's a lot more to me. I got a family, I got friends, I smile sometimes, I laugh, I have fun in my life. I think that the 'Behind The Music' will open up everybody's mind on that person I really am." (Billboard)
The platinum-selling rapper also said he is fully behind the upcoming program.
For Game, sharing these memories with the VH1 cameras was a more therapeutic experience than a stomach-churning one. "Any time I can let another person inside my life to understand how hard it was to get here -- and how hard it was to stay afloat -- they're more than welcome," he says. "I'm glad, that VH1 put me on this pedestal and let my life be shown. I can't wait until it airs." (Billboard)
The VH1 series will focus heavily on various hip-hop artists and singers, ranging from NY rapper Nas to R&B icon, Brandy.
VH1's five-time Emmy-nominated documentary series "Behind The Music" returns to focus on six of today's most influential hip hop/urban artists. This season's roster includes: Pitbull, Game, T-Pain, Akon, Brandy and Nas. In addition to the dramatic storytelling that made "Behind The Music" a worldwide hit, the series will feature originally shot footage of each artist at work today, anchoring each story in the current day and connecting the past with the present. The new season will premiere Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 9pm ET/PT. (Hip Hop Galaxy)
