Rapper The Game Searches For Unpaid Assistant On Instagram
Rapper The Game took to Instagram earlier this week in search of an assistant willing to work for free.
In a post that has since been deleted, the G-Unit rapper began his message saying, “Good morning young world… I am looking for a new assistant…. (male or female) someone who wants to intern for a few months with the possibility of working your way into a paid position pending you can get the job done, learn the ins & outs of the industry & help me with my day to day.”
The 37-year-old rapper also specified that he would prefer the candidate to be college educated but that he is also “willing to take a chance on someone who doesn’t have a degree & is strong minded, focused, determined & ready to assist immediately.”
The only other qualification The Game listed was that the candidate must have a car and live in the Los Angeles area, where the rapper is originally from.
He asked that fans interested in the job message him privately on social media. It is unclear at the time why the post has since been deleted.
In November 2016, The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, was ordered by a jury pay Priscilla Rainey, a contestant on the rapper’s now-cancelled VH1 show She’s Got Game, $7.1 million for sexual assault.
Taylor, who denies all charges, has since brought a suit against Viacom, VH1’s parent company, claiming that the network did not properly vet Rainey, leaving Taylor in a dangerous situation.
In the claim filed by Taylor’s attorney, the rapper claims that Viacom “chose ratings over protecting the Plaintiff and others,” considering that they “had knowledge of Rainey’s violent and extensive arrest history,” according to Rolling Stone.
A rep from Viacom, speaking with Rolling Stone said, “[Taylor] is now seeking to shift the burden of his damages to Viacom through a misdirected legal action that is totally without merit. We will work with the production partner on this series to vigorously defend against this claim.”
