The Game jailed in Los Angeles

The GameUS rapper The Game has been jailed in Los Angeles.

The hip-hop star - real name Jayceon Taylor - arrived to begin his 60-day jail sentence over his arrest last year when he pulled a gun on an opposing player during a basketball match at a Los Angeles school.

The 28-year-old pleaded no contest in February to the felony charge of gun possession in a school zone, after he reportedly punched the other player and pulled a gun from his vehicle threatening to shoot him.

Taylor was given 60 days behind bars, 150 hours of community service and three years probation, with the judge giving him until March 3 to turn himself in to authorities.

He checked into the Men's Central Jail in Los Angeles late on Sunday night [Mar 2], records show.

Despite the 60-day sentence, he is expected to be released on March 4.

The rapper has recently been putting the finishing touches to his third album, called L.A.X., due for release later this year. He rose to fame with debut album The Documentary in 2005.
