Game Sued for Missing Concerts in Lebanon
AllHipHop is reporting that The Crystal Group has filed suit in New York City against the California rapper, born Jayceon Taylor, for missing two shows in Beirut, Lebanon in the summer of 2011. Both he and his touring company, BWS Touring, are named in the suit—which is seeking $250,000 from the Interscope signee, saying that they wired Game $30,000, but he canceled the performance—for breach of contract. According to the report, The Crystal Group also claims that they rescheduled the performance, which Game once again canceled.
This is the second time this month that the name-dropping rhymer has been named in a lawsuit. As previously reported, the producer Infamous came after Game in a suit, seeking damages of more than $100,000 for the use of his beat on the song “Skate On,” from Game’s California Republic mixtape.
Earlier this year, five North Carolina police officers were awarded $1 million each after claiming in a suit that they were misrepresented and victims of slander in Game’s 2005 DVD Stop Snitching/Stop Lyin. —Adam Fleischer (@AdamXXL)
