Hip Hop News: Nightmare Before Christmas for The Game

January 10, 2011 at 11:41 pm

Christmas passed us by a few weeks ago, and hopefully everyone out there took fond memories away from their respective holiday seasons. However one world-famous hip hop star certainly made his way into the New Year on a low note. We’re talking about rapper The Game, who had $75,000 of hip hop jewelry stolen from him on Christmas Eve.


The Game and a friend were doing some last minute festive gift shopping at a California mall when their car was broken into and a Louis Vuitton duffle bag filled with over 75 G’s of bling was swiped. If he was in getting into the spirit of Christmas beforehand, any sign of it had gone by the time the West Coast rapper went on Twitter later that night.

He was adamant that the valet at the mall’s parking lot had been the one to steal his precious hip hop cargo, tweeting “Tried 2 do last minute shoppin 4 da kids & valet stole a Louis duffle out the car & we 2 chains & $75,000 short.” That’s right, for the kids! What a tear-jerker…

Despite his outburst, The Game still had well wishes for all of his followers: “I hope everyone ate good, received the things they wanted, spent time with loved ones and had a miracle of a Christmas.”

Let that be a reminder to everyone, keep your precious hip hop jewelry in a safe place!
