Contrary to published reports, The Game is still locked up in a Los Angeles area prison, a representative for the Compton, California rapper confirmed with AllHipHop.com today (March 10).
The Games lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley reportedly stated that the rapper was released from the Twin Towers Correctional Facility earlier today (March 10), after serving eight days of a 60 days jail sentence.
A representative for The Game denied the reports, stating the rapper was simply transferred from The Twin Towers facility, to another jail.
“He was transferred to an unnamed prison, due to his gang related background,” the source told AllHipHop.com.
The Game, who turned himself over to authorities on March 2, pleaded no contest to a felony charge of gun possession in a school zone in February.
The charges stem from an altercation at the Rita Walters Educational Learning Complex in South Los Angeles, in which the chart-topping rapper pointed a gun at another man during an argument after a game of basketball.
The Game is scheduled for an early release, but that will not occur until some time in April.
