Game has none other than his own family to thank for confirming the Compton rapper’s stripping past. That’s because Jayceon “Game” Terrell’s stepfather, Hodari Sababu, is speaking out to tell of the days Game hustled around a pole – in a G-string – for a dollar. According to Sababu, both he and Game’s mother provided the stage to make that happen – previously launching an exotic male strip club.
Here’s what Hodari Sababu had to say in the documentary ‘Hood Life: A Hip Hop Guided Tour Of Compton’:
“Me and Game’s mom, we started a male exotic club. The adults-only club started off by employing ex-convicts. 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.
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.”
Is a male stripper a call-boy? Isn’t a call-boy a trick? I think so, but next time I see Game’s mentor Dr Dre, I’ll ask him.
