Despite published reports posted earlier today, The Game is still incarcerated in a Los Angeles county prison facility. In this SOHH exclusive, The Game's manager and Czar Entertainment CEO, Jimmy Henchman, called in to help clear up the false reports.
"We had anticipated that he would be release on or before April 2nd," Henchman explained to SOHH. "[We were expecting] it to be similar to what happened with Paris Hilton, where she was sentenced to 90 days and only did a week in the penitentiary. As of right now, I don't know what county jail he's at. We're anticipating for him to be home probably April, so he can promote his album."
Last month, The Game pled no contest to a felony charge of possession of a firearm in a school zone. The alleged incident occurred at South Los Angeles' Rita Walter Educational Learning Complex on February 24, 2007. Rather than fight the felony gun charges, the platinum rapper opted to serve a 60 days sentence in a L.A. jail.
"We've had extensive talks," Henchman revealed. "At first they weren't allowing him to really use the phones because they had him on 23 hour lock in. But, he's very productive in there. In fact, he's been writing some records. He has a record that he wanted to make sure that he's able to record immediately after he's released."
"I think this experience for him is going to change his outlook of what it is to have your freedom and what it is to have it taken away," Henchman explained. "I think for the positive its going to change some of his outlooks. But, he did say he wanted me to book studio time. He doesn't want to go home, he wants to go straight to a studio as soon as he's released."
The Game is currently working on his third solo album entitled LAX, scheduled for release some time this year.
Correction: SOHH reported earlier today that according to TMZ, The Game was released from the Twin Towers Correctional Facility after only serving 8 days.
