The Game celebrates his son’s achievement by recreating a sentimental moment from his debut album, “The Documentary.”
If you owned the album, you’ve probably saw the CD booklet insert (remember those?) where the Compton emcee held his then infant first-born son, Harlem. On Friday (June 9) marked the eighth-grade graduation for young Harlem (now 13) and Game took a break from recording his upcoming Dr. Dre-featured LP because he couldn’t be any more proud of his valedictorian offspring.
