Los Angeles rapper The Game has made a decision to stop posting daily tributes to the late Nipsey Hussle on Instagram.
Following the “Victory Lap” rapper’s death, The Game vowed to post about Hussle everyday for the rest of his life, and he did so until now, calling his daily tributes #OneNipPostADayTillFadeAway.
On Thursday (May 16), The Game took to Instagram to inform his followers that out of respect “for his wife & family most of who follow [The Game],” the “100” rapper would no longer post about his friend everyday.
“I woke up today with a bunch of mixed emotions as sometimes we as humans do. My 1st thought was to find another inspiring picture of Nip & post it because I know there are thousands, maybe millions of you who use it & the messages below it as daily motivation,” The Game wrote.
“Then I thought, for his wife & family most of who follow me… might be saddened by the constant reminders not just on my page but everywhere they look online & on social media making it harder for them to find peace.”
The Game said that now “the best option” is for him to perhaps post about Nipsey Hussle once a week and call it “#MarathonMondays.”
