THE GAME cancels festival appearance; sister reportedly shot in drive by days later; documentary DVD about his life to be released October 18, 2008

The Game, born Jayceon Taylor, canceled his scheduled headlining appearance at the SAIG Entertainment and International Arts Festival earlier this month without giving a reason, reports Allhiphop.com.

       The event took place Oct. 11 and 12 and also featured performances by Tamia, Morgan Heritage and New Orleans native  Lloyd.

       According to the Festival’s founder Ernest Kelly, event producers were told that The Game had failed to board a 3:30 pm flight on Sunday (Oct 12) for unknown reasons and that his management had cancelled all New Orleans hotel and transportation accommodations.


       *AllHipHop.com is also reporting that The Game’s sister was shot during a drive by shooting in Compton on Oct. 14. Sources told the Web site that she was sitting on her front porch when she suffered minor injuries after being grazed by a bullet.


       *The Game is set to release a DVD entitled, “The Game…Life After The Math,” a documentary from Polychrome Pictures about his turbulent rise to fame.

        In telling his story, the film contains rare, never-before-seen footage of Katt Williams, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Kanye West, among others.

        “Rarely do you find an artist who is so confident and secure with themselves and their abilities that they are willing to let fans into their head to see the demons they’ve battled,” said Danny Rodriguez, co-founder of Polychrome Pictures. “Game has exposed his soul in his music and in ‘Life After The Math’ he reveals the reasons he was driven to street life, not justifications for it. We could not be more honored to be a part of the project.”
