Hurricane Sandy left thousands of people without power or water, and some without homes. While the 2012 Presidential Elections were taking place Game was lending a helping hand to the people that were affected b y the storm in New York.

“The story got a little misconstrued as it flowed through the media,” explained Game. “They tried to make it seem like I was paying people to go vote.”

Game explained that he just helped voters with transportation, so they can go vote for the Presidential Elections.¬†”The gas situation was crazy. I was in Jersey, and I didn’t understand until I got into New York City and saw 200 cabs lined up, with cars and people out there in a walk-up line with little gas cans. So what I did was, once they opened a couple of the trains again, I just was giving people $20 because I felt that would get you to and from a poll,” he said.

“We said we were gonna keep it at $10,000 and give 500 people $20 and let them rock. We even put some people in a car service, dropped them off at polls and kept going.”
