The Game Keeps Gun For Protection

Rising rapper THE GAME is prepared to risk going to jail by keeping a gun at his California home, because he deems the firearm vital to his survival.

The hip-hop star - a protege of rap giant 50 CENT - was recently given cause to step up his security measures when he discovered his abode in the notoriously tough Compton neighbourhood of Los Angeles had been sprayed with bullets.

And The Game, real name JAYCEON TAYLOR, has no plans to hand over his AK-47 weapon to authorities - because it could ultimately lead to his death.

He says, "I wanna stay in my hood in Compton, and Compton is violent sometimes. I've been shot before, and rather than let another attempt happen, I'd prefer to go to jail.

"Rather do five years in jail for the AK than do an eternity in the hole, right?"
