The rapper will potentially be punished for his involvement with Paragon.
The Game is facing legal troubles because of a recent business venture. Paragon, founded by 2014 Miss Iowa Jessica VerSteeg, received $70 million through its ICO (Initial Coin Offering), a new form of non-regulated fundraising used by startups to avoid the exhaustive process required by traditional venture capitalism. Those who have contributed to this phase have since formed a class action suit against the company in January 2018. The suit claims that Paragon has failed to meet their promises of revolutionizing the cannabis industry, having bought real estate with their funds instead. The plan was to bring a percentage of the cash-based industry to cryptocurrency, which would entail a high-value return for investors.
The Game, who is part of Paragon's "advisory board," has been added to the original suit as a defendant on June 22nd. His role, as agreed upon with Paragon, was to use his celebrity status to promote the company as well as its ICO. The Game complied, using his platform to spread the word. He could even be seen with the CEO in one of his tweets as well as on Versteeg's Instagram.
The lawsuit asks for unspecified damages, in addition to a halt of any transactions with the raised capital as well as its recession. The Game might end up reconsidering calling his new album "the last" one.
