West Coast rapper Game is looking for the right buyer as reports claim the newest member of Cash Money Records is selling one of his California homes for just under $2 million.
According to reports, the Cali rapper has placed his Glendale crib onto the market for interested buyers.
Jayceon Taylor, the rap musician known as Game or the Game, has listed his house in Glendale for sale at $1.799 million. Built in 1958 and updated, the gated two-story features an open floor plan, high ceilings with skylights, a game room (really), four bedrooms, five bathrooms and 4,667 square feet of living space. The one-third-acre lot contains a swimming pool and custom-built barbecue area. He bought the property in 2005 for $1.9 million, public records show. Kenneth Marker and Edward Dolce of Rodeo Realty are the listing agents. (Los Angeles Times)
Earlier this month, Game talked about owning five homes in the Los Angeles area.
"The biggest thing I spent money on was probably a house, which was a smart thing to do," Game said in an interview with Larry King. "I got a few [houses]. Yeah. You know what? My financial advisor is always saying we need to rent these houses or we need to sell them and I'm always like, I just don't like people in my house, you know? Like, what if they get dirt on something? [How many homes do I have?] Five. [All in Los Angeles,] yeah. [laughs] I haven't been to three in maybe like, six months, but yeah, I try to. [They just sit there,] yeah." ("Larry King Now")
A few weeks ago, Game revealed his unexpected and new affiliation with the Cash Money crew.
Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne have a new labelmate. The Game has officially joined the YMCMB family as the label's newest signee. Birdman made the announcement on Twitter. "S/O 2MY@thegame Westcoast makit Official.RICHGANG.YMCMBusine$$," tweeted the Cash Money CEO. The Game saluted his new team. "@BIRDMAN5STAR time to close the door on these niggas !!!! R$CHGANG," he responded. The Compton rapper, 33, was previously signed to Interscope Records, where he released five No. 1 albums including his 2005 debut The Documentary, which was released in conjunction with G-Unit Records.
