Behind The Music Explores Game’s Misunderstood Hip Hop Persona

by (@kat_george)

Behind The Music is taking a look at the complex life of hip hop artist Game. In this exclusive sneak peek, you can get an idea of where the artist came from, and where he’s going. In the opening scenes of the sneak, Game proposes to his girlfriend at the school she works at, and says he’s growing out of his tumultuous past; “Day by day I have altered my lifestyle into who I am now… A better person, a better friend, a better father, a better everything.” Including interviews with his abusive father and abused mother, the sneak paints a pretty bleak picture of Game’s childhood. The story is absolutely heart wrenching, and Game’s story is a complete tear jerker, and filled with pain and sadness. Covering his dangerous teenage years, the documentary would be much more difficult to watch if we didn’t already know there was a happy ending for Game, who found his way through the chaos of his gang life, including his violent beef with 50 Cent, to forge a successful career as an artist. You can check out the promo trailer after the jump.
