Game’s “Pot Of Gold” Video Robbery

Game’s “Pot Of Gold” Video Robbery

Rapper–producer Mars robbed while shooting video with Game and Chris Brown

Published July 3, 2011

Last week, rumors took off that Game’s video “Pot of Gold” was robbed during the shoot, although the rapper, who was tweeting about the video during production, never mentioned a word of it.


According to, Fox News reported the robbery, saying that “the suspects were said to have taken Mars' jewelry and wallet which contained a few thousand dollars.” Mars (Lamar Edward, 24) is a songwriter/producer who has worked with T.I., Snoop Dogg, and David Banner, among others. At the time of the robbery, the producer was said to have been about a block away from the set, where Game and Chris Breezy were shooting. As a result, they were unharmed and also apparently unaware of the crime.


While Game was tweeting how well the shoot went, noted a string of dramatic tweets from Mars expressing gratitude at not having been killed. "Dang.. Couldve died today but God spared my life! Praying til I pass out! Goodnight and God bless you!!!!!" Even though TMZ says the music maker lost about $12,000, the important thing is that he gets to make more good music and Game’s video shoot is not going to be a memorial.
