Compton Hip-Hop star The Game has announced the release date for his highly anticipated third major label release, L.A. X. (Los Angeles Times ).
According to The Game the album will hit stores on June 24, the first day of summer.
“I have a highly controversial album coming this summer and not the typical controversy you are used to in rap,” The Game said. “On L.A.X. I’m addressing real issues that other artists might be scared to talk about on record; issues that need to be heard.”
The Game was released from jail on March 10, after spending eight days incarcerated at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles.
According to a lawsuit filed by Rodrick, The Game, born Jayceon Taylor, allegedly punched Rodrick during a game of basketball in February 2007 at the Rita Walters Educational Complex in South Los Angeles.
Rodrick claims The Game threatened to “blast” him while brandishing a gun during the game.
The rapper pleaded no contest to felony possession of a firearm in a school zone in February of 2008.
In addition to the time served, The Game is currently serving 150 hours of community service and three years probation.
