Early this morning (Apr. 1), The Game broke down crying about his friend Nipsey Hussle’s passing while riding through Hussle’s Los Angeles neighborhood.
The Game shared his thoughts about the unfortunate deathw of Hussle on his Instagram story.
You can hear the “100” rapper break down crying as he says, ” Over here driving down Slauson man. Driving down Slauson, four in the morning man cause I can’t sleep behind what happened to Nip man. Why they do the homie like that man? At his own muthaf***ing stop. In his own f***king hood man. Just try to do good for n****s man. Sh** crazy man. I can’t sleep man! I’m disgusted by this sh**! That’s how yall do the homie. In his own city! In his own hood! In his own place of business. That’s how n****s do. LA on some bullsh**.
Yesterday (Mar. 31), The Game also shared a photograph of himself with Nipsey Hussle on Instagram. In his caption he wrote, “Rolled down my window 12 years ago on Crenshaw & Slauson as you handed me your demo & said “Chuck, don’t frisbee my sh** homie… give a young n**** a ear”. From that day to letting you open up for me on tour & us going around the world together, creating a bond & watching your growth to today…… Murdered my friend in front of his own store on a Sunday at that !!! After just talking to you on the phone just last night about the Dr. Sebi documentary, family, the kids & how we were both bout to f&$k the summer up with this music, the world loses a true king. A man that was truly about everything he spoke & stood up for all that he believed in. I keep seeing your name in these headlines bro, but it seems unreal to me…. like, I just cannot believe you gone !!!!”
“I love you….. I’m really broken & saddened by the fact they did this to you SMMFH !!!!!
