West Coast rapper Game’s stepfather Hodari Sababu speaks on starting up an exotic male strip club and how much involvement the former G-Unit member had in the venue in a new Compton-based documentary.
According to Sababu, the adults-only club started off by employing ex-convicts.
“Me and Game’s mom, we started a male exotic club,” Game’s stepdad revealed in an interview. “What we used to do, we used to get guys that come fresh out of jail, they was buffed up and needed money. A lot of these guys can’t go and fill out a application and get a job but hey, if they look good, they been working out, we put ‘em on man, we get them a thousand bucks a week dancing.” (Hood Life: A Hip Hop Guided Tour Of Compton)
He also confirmed Game spent a short stint dancing in the club.
“Jayceon danced there maybe twice, and 50 Cent will not let him forget it and somehow, somebody got pictures of him dancing in that club with his g-string on and boy, boy, boy. Whether he likes it or not, I tell him the truth. Because just like most people that achieve a certain amount of fame and fortune, that comes with the sycophants or the a** kissers, because they’re around all the time to say ‘Yes, yes, you’re the greatest thing.’ Because most of time, they’re on the payroll. But fortunately, or unfortunately, I’m not on the payroll so I can tell you exactly what I think.” (Hood Life: A Hip Hop Guided Tour Of Compton)
Back in the mid-2000’s, G-Unit’s 50 Cent taunted Game over his pre-fame days.
This rumor first started back in 06, when 50 Cent released the mixtape G-Unit Radio Part 21: Hate It or Love It, bearing a photo of Game in a strip club wearing a g-string. At the time Fif maintained that Game had once been a stripper working under the alias “Doja,” although most fans assumed he was simply trying to get back at Game for depicting G-Unit as the Village People.

Back in the early 2000’s, Game appeared on dating show “Change of Heart” where a female contestant spilled the beans on the strip club.
“Actually, he said he wanted me to meet his mom at his mom’s club,” one of the “Change of Heart” contestants said referring to Game. “When we got there, I didn’t know it was a strip club and I walked in and saw this butt-naked man pouring something all down the front of his chest in front of me, just dancing.” (“Change of Heart”)
