The light hearted clip showed his 12-year-old daughter, California “Cali” Dream Taylor playfully mimicking the lyrics, “I’m out here in Miami. Lookin’ for the hoochie daddies (Where they at?) Where the n-ggas that get ratchet? My son need a new pappy.”
The clip went viral with many internet users slamming The Documentary rapper for allowing his pre-teen to participate in the video due to the song’s sexually explicit lyrics.
“The song is inappropriate for her age; there are age appropriate songs that he can vibe with his kids for a TikTok video,” one user commented.
In response to the backlash, The Game defended his parenting in the comments section of a post by Hollywood Unlocked discussing the TikTok.
“She my kid,” he wrote in the comments. “1/2 y’all kids got snot frozen on the outside of their noses, yet you’re trying to weigh in on my parenthood… My kid’s in a private school making straight A’s in a uniform… We’re good over here.”
While they may be good over there, this isn’t the first time his parenting has been called into question. Last December, Cali was criticized for wearing a revealing outfit to Diddy’s twins’ sweet 16. The outfit consisted of a metallic minidress, a white fur coat, and high heels. Some people felt that the outfit was too mature for a 12-year-old, and that it was inappropriate for her to be wearing such revealing clothing in public.
However, The Game defended his daughter’s right to wear whatever she wants, and said that he was not going to let other people dictate how she dresses.
“I am her father & her protector and she is & will always be an amazing young woman. I wish everyone happy holidays & thanks for your opinions on a child that belongs to US but we GOT THIS, ” The Game said.
