The Game is known for his devotion to his children and has given us many heartwarming moments on his ‘Gram. So it’s only fitting that the Compton rapper spared no expense when it came to his son Harlem Taylor’s Sweet 16. The proud father stopped at nothing to put on a dope birthday bash for his oldest on Sunday (June 30).
The flashy affair included performances from Trippie Redd, Blueface and Tee Grizzley, topped off by The Game gifting his son a bow-wrapped BMW truck. But he saved the sweetest gift for later that night. The 39-year-old capped off the celebration with a moving social media tribute dedicated to his oldest and congratulating him on his growth.
“I named you Harlem because that’s the 1st city in New York I had ever been to & during my time there, I felt its strength, culture & I learned a lot of its history so I felt it appropriate for my 1st born,” the rapper wrote in the lengthy post. “I didn’t even know how to properly love or appreciate anything til I met you. 16 years later & wow... look at you !!! Smart, beautiful & everything I imagined you would be. We made it this far together & we’ve got a lifetime to go.”
