The Game gave a young Nipsey Hussle's career a big boost when he took him on his LAX tour in 2009.
Nipsey's gone now, and The Game got emotional when discussing his shocking death.
"Over here driving down Slauson, four in the morning," says Game. "Cause I can't sleep behind what happened to Nip, man! Why n***as do the homie like that man? At his own motherf*ckin stop. In his own f*ckin hood, man. He's trying to do good for n***as man. S**t crazy man, I can't even f*cking sleep, I'm disgusted by this sh*t! That's how ya'll do the homie?! In his own city, in his own hood, in his own place of business!? That's how n***as do n***as man?! LA on some bullsh*t, homie on ME!"
Rolled down my window 12 years ago on Crenshaw & Slauson as you handed me your demo & said “Chuck, don’t frisbee my shit homie... give a young nigga 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 !!!!! I can only imagine what your family is going through right now... This was not how your life on earth was supposed to end !!!!!!!! They don’t even make friends like you no more...... @nipseyhussle 🙏🏾 & in LA, at his own store ?!?!? A store & business he put there for his people ?!?!? Los Angeles, how we let this happen ?!?!?!?!? I’m ashamed of you right now !!!!! Can’t even live out ya whole life in this city no more... this shit right here is just krazy to me !!!!!!!!!!!! #RestInPeaceNip can’t even fuckin believe it’s actually your name attached to all these REST IN PEACE posts !!!!!
