Game Asks Judge to Nix Gangster References in Assault Case

Game doesn’t want to be known as a gangster…in court that is. The West Coast artist is trying to separate himself from his negative image as he prepares for a lawsuit.

As previously reported, the Compton-bred MC is currently entangled in a suit that stems from an alleged 2007 incident during a basketball game in Los Angeles. Shannon Rodrick claims that The Doctor’s Advocate hit him and then threatened him with a gun at a pickup game. While Game already served eight days in prison for the assault charges in 2008, the victim filed a lawsuit against the rapper seeking an undisclosed amount in damages.

Now, according to tmz.com, Game wants to distance himself from his rap persona at his upcoming trial. He is asking the judge to not call him a “gangster” or reference his lyrics in the court, because he’s afraid it will taint the jury.

As of press time the judge has yet to respond to Game’s requests. It is uncertain when the trial will begin. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com as more information becomes available. —Elan Mancini

  • KLETEWOOD

    It sounds like the GAME has a weak lawyer.

    My brother is a Blood. Serving time in San Quentin. Everytime he gets out. He goes back because of evading police officers. He gets a year everytime he runs from the cops. But, he’d rather do a year than get caught with his thumper with tops. When you get caught with tops (cop killer bullets)….the judge will give you 10 years.

    Rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    • DV8

      ummm…..I dont think I would have told that (in Katt Williams voice)

      Too much info that probably shouldnt be outthere na’mean?

  • You guys are HATING!!

    Listen Im NO Game fan but actors dont get their movies put on in court or their scripts read to the jury-shit is entertainment.

    Who gives a fuck if he a “real” blood……they all in jail ,broke or dead or will end up that way. Shit aint positive-beefing over colors=ridiculous, while white kids getting education….I bet some white man created that shit for y’all to be occupied. But not this black man…..
    Im from NYC I am Decepz till I die! And im in law school Assholes!!
    PS And u Cali asses got the terminator as governor but wonna hate on fake ass Game….Your Governor can do more damage to ur life-recognize!

    Also, hes getting sued dummies-why would he want to give his paper up. He’s a G for not claiming that shit when gettin sued! Dumbasses!
    Other than that….yeah The Game is a fraud!

  • http://xxlmag.com BZ

    I understand what he is sayin but what can you do about the tats on ya face man!Next thing he will ask is to have a blur on his face!!!!

  • j

    Judge: “Please let the court records show that in place of gangsta is the word wanksta”

  • El Tico Loco

    Is not a criminal case is a lawsuit, unless this is a judge that’s known to be biased, the only thing that should be discussed in the trial is losses and damages. I can see the plaintiff lawyer using the whole gangster shit to persuade the decision, but pulling out a gun at a pick up game is such a fail given his status(how bad were you fouled?) He (Game)just needs his lawyer to negotiate a fair settlement and call it a day.

    • STOP ROCKIN SILVER & CZs

      CO-SIGN. I dont blame him for tryin to present himself like a grown man/gentlemen/professional on some Supreme shit in the presence of a judge in the court of law, (FUCK THE POLICE) instead of a being seen as a “gangster”, being labeled as a “gangster” sounds fuckin retarted anyway, the word itself, your just a product of your environment, period. Just imagine Game strolling into court throwin shit, “nigga, fuck the police!!”, just straight wildin tha fuck out on some G shit. It aint about bein fake or whatever you stupid ass niggas above me are bitchin about, you’d do the same fuckin thing. He just aint tryin 2 give himself a bad look, knowin the jury probably consists of a buncha assholes who dont listen or take part in his music, let alone give a flying fuck about him, they’ll throw him in for years just for laughs. & speakin on that red 5 pointed star on his face, shit looks too big N tacky, nigga shoulda just kept LA N called it a day.

  • looooooool

    if u don’t want to look like a gangsta in court…just show ur butterfly tattoo loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooollllll

  • qk

    oh fuckin well he shouldn’t try to be hard and then when shit gets real act like a bitch!!!!!! dude is trying to cake up 4 damages and game acting like a bitch if u not a gangster stop fakin!!!!!!! bitch ass nigga!!!!!!!

  • Trille$t

    The Game has a gangster persona. The problem is saying that shit aint gangsta. A real g would remain silent. It seems like a buster manuever

  • Grimey G

    You guys are so fucking stupid. His lawyer is the one pushing for this cause he doesn’t want to lose a lawsuit and pay out some cash. Its not like Game is standing up going “I’m not really a gangster please go easy on me!” Its just a business move it has no bearing on whether or not he was a gang member.

  • Trille$t

    A real gangster wouldn’t say that.

  • fuckyou

    you motherfuckers talking shit think you got all the knowledge on the right way to do things, and talk about oh he gets what he deserved, shut the fuck up you sound like a bunch of white boys who ain’t never been in some bullshit, which is prob the truth anyway.

    Why would anyone wanna be judged as a gangster in the court of law that is some of the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard, even a real blood wouldn’t want to be labelled as a gangster in prison that makes the jury find you guilty without even hearing the case, so all you wannabe Einstein motherfuckers need to go get a life and stop acting like you the fucking G police!

    BTW XXL you need to start making motherfuckers sign up to comment instead of letting everyone fake an email to post, thats why every article is filled with a bunch of kids hating everything.

    I’m gonna do my own investigation on these dudes and start pulling up their IP addresses and we gonna see how “real” you are! I’m gonna start with lllllooooolll and qk I hope you guys use a VPN cuz I’m about to expose you bitches!

  • Luis Alvares

    I agree this does not make The Game any less of a gangstar.It’s perfect sense the Jury will hang him if he is labeled that.So whether its the lawyer or the game who suggested it,it’s a smart move.And that is what being gangstar is all about,being smart because smart gangstars are alive making money and dumb ass gangstars are below the ground.Oh and by the way once a “gangstar” crosses over to mainstream hip hop it all ends,he may rap about it,glorify it but he aint living it.That goes for all your favourite rappers from the beginning to the present dead or alive.

  • beaver
