The Game Posts Touching Tribute To His Son On His Sweet 16 After Throwing Him An Epic Birthday Bash

Grab some tissues.

Published July 1, 2019

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). 

  1. 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.


     

  2. “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.” 

    Grab some tissues before you read the rest of the touching message, below.

    16 years ago today I became a father for the 1st time. At that moment, I had no idea on what to do, how to do it or what fatherhood would truly entail. But no matter what it was, I felt deep in my soul I was ready. Battle tested, rough childhood & all... I was ready. I let love be my guide & dove in head first learning more & more about parenting along the way. I named you Harlem because that’s the 1st city in New York I had ever been to & during my time there, I felt it’s strength, culture & I learned a lot of its history so I felt it appropriate for my 1st born. It’s been 16 years & not once have a failed you or not been there when you needed me. I know I was missing in the beginning due to my early career tours, shows etc.... but I knew you were a baby & that by the time you could understand what was going on, you wouldn’t remember me ever not being by your side. You are & have always been my strength & the true motivation behind everything that I have been able to achieve in my career & life. If you weren’t born who knows where I’d be in life, but I am 100% positive it wouldn’t be here, as 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. Catch every tear, trace every step, listen as well as learn, love whole heartedly & never stop loving you... not even for a split second is how I parent. You are everything to me boy & I hope that I’ve truly made you happy on your birthday son. God knows I gave it my all - Dad #Happy16BdayHarlem @harlemtaylorr 👈🏾 I NEED EVERYBODY TO HIT THE FOLLOW FOR MY 1ST BORN ON HIS DAY !!!
