Being the influential rapper he is, it's unsurprising to learn that The Game makes a fair bit of money.
But just how rich he is may come as a surprise to some after the West Coast hip-hop artist inadvertently let the figure slip on his Instagram page.
It all started so well: after pledging to donate $500,000 (£350,000) to aid the 100,000 residents of neglected Michigan city, Flint - who are currently enduring a disastrous water-contamination crisis - The Game followed up this kind act by proving to his fans he's a man of his word.
Sharing a screenshot of the online transfer he made to bottled water company Avita Water, he conveniently failed to omit the part that revealed his available balance. Read it and weep...
#WATERFORFLINT PROOF !!! So, I'm on tour & not in the US as I'd like to be to help with this water crisis in Flint, Michigan 1st hand.... #1 because my younger sister & her children live there & 2nd because I care. Most celebs on here faking using the word "Pledge" in their so called donations are not fooling anyone ! The truth is the population in Flint, Michigan is about 105,000 people & it takes at least 9 bottles per person a day just to use to bathe, brush their teeth, drink & cook with... So on behalf my charity @TheRobinHoodProject I am donating $1,000,000 in water bottles..$500,000 coming out of my own pocket (which is everything I've made on tour up to this point) & the other 1/2 being met by @AvitaWater & the 1st drop is being made TODAY 1pm eastern time at "Food Bank East Michigan" 2300 Lapeer Road flint Michigan 48503 & the 1st drop will be 1400 cases of water equaling about 33,000 bottles today & everyday that follows until 1,000,000 bottles of water are dropped !!!! To those who think it's easy getting this water to Flint, it's not so the people who are PLEDGING they are, show us.. We want proof !!! Stop using others tragedies for your own celebrity gain... You're not fooling ANYONE ! I seen @Madonna & @JimmyFallon's $10,000 donations... that's cute, but not nearly enough.... So I challenge both & anyone else in the world to match me & DONATE $1,000,000 in bottled water to Flint, Michigan & we want proof, shipping order receipts, bank wire receipts, pictures etc........... No more pretending to give a fuck..... I donate money all the time & it comes out of my pocket & never once have I written anything off on my taxes because that's not why I do it !!!!!!!! So, if any other celebrity wants to MATCH MY MILLION here's the site where you can donate http://selfmadefoundation.org or pick your own.. JUST MAKE SURE THE WATER ACTUALLY GETS TO THE PEOPLE WHO NEED IT !! & I don't wanna see anyone else using the word "PLEDGE" in their donation or press release because we know that that means. "YOU JUST TALKING & TRYING TO MAKE YOURSELF LOOK LIKE A HUMANITARIAN" !!! #WaterForFlint #TheRobinHoodProject #AvitaH20Corp #SelfmadeFoundation #HUMANPOWERBALL
That’s right - he's got over $13 million sitting in there (that's over £9 million in the UK).
He went on to accompany the screenshot with a lengthy heartfelt caption underneath which criticised singer Madonna and US chat show host Jimmy Fallon for donating just $10,000.
“That’s cute, but not nearly enough," the rapper - real name Jayceon Taylor - wrote.
Last year, The Game was arrested following an altercation with a police officer.Reuse content
