The Game Just Posted His Bank Account Balance On Insta And MY GOD I Need To Start Working On My Mixtape
I had the same feeling wash over me when I was told that rappers don’t own the cars and houses they claim in their music videos as I did when I found out Santa wasn’t real. I couldn’t understand how the artists I adored could use my naiveté to strengthen their brand in my mind. I even questioned if the big booty hoez in the video were actual big booty hoez or just CGI or some advanced special effects shit. To this day, I’m still not convinced Amber Rose is a real person.
Regardless, one of the looming questions of my adolescence was whether or not these dudes had the “stacks on stacks” they were rapping to us about or if they just had stacks of steaming piles of bullshit they were feeding us.
Well my man The Game has come in hot with a Instagram post depicting his checking account balance and, well, I’d say he’s pretty financially stable.

Granted, The Game has been a power player in the rap game for over 10 years, namely with his 2005 debut album The Documentary (which went double platinum and sold over 5 million copies worldwide), but GOOD LORD, $13 mill just CHILLIN in checking?!
The motive behind The Game’s Instagram post–besides letting big booty hoez know he rich–was to show that he has donated $500,000 to the residents of Flint, Michigan, where his sister and her kids live.
For bros not in the know, the people of Flint are undergoing a serious water crisis as a series of state governmental blunders caused lead from pipes and fixtures into the drinking water, deeming it unsafe. The Game teamed up with AvitaWater, who doubled his donation, raising the total to $1 million.
The rapper also took aim at mega-stars like Jimmy Fallon and Madonna for pledging $10,000 each to the cause, calling the gestures “cute.”
The Game’s account balance is almost as big as his hog. I would attach a link but Instagram deemed it too large for social media.
