The Game Details 2007 Prison Stint: “Longest Time On Earth”

The Game recently reflected on his six-month stint in prison in 2007 for allegedly threatening a man with a gun. He detailed his time behind bars during an interview with VladTV. He says he spent most of his time “reading and reflecting” but didn’t learn his lesson.

As for how his level of fame impacted the experience, he explained: “10 times worse because by default, you go into solitary confinement because they don’t want any lawsuits from your family members if something happens to you and that’s what made it the longest time on earth.”

He continued: “I was in a cell basically 24 hours a day except the hour that you get out for either a phone call or shower. You have to choose. You don’t get both. So, you either taking a shower or making a phone call. Me, my cleanliness is next to godliness, so it wasn’t a lot of phone calls. I spent a lot of time reading and just reflecting on sh*t. It’s always funny because when you in jail, you always reflecting and reading and becoming more knowledgeable. Then when you get out, sh*t, you just go back to whatever the f*ck you was doing like you weren’t ever in jail.” He concluded by noting that, when he got out, he “still didn’t learn [his] lesson.” Check out his full comments with DJ Vlad below.
