Los Angeles-based rapper The Game has posted a new photo on his official Instagram page and mourned his close friend and late rapper Nipsey Hussle with a heart-melting letter by sharing an incredibly beautiful mural.
As you may recall, on March 31, 2019, Nipsey Hussle was killed by his enemies in front of his store called The Marathon in Los Angeles at the age of 33. His tragic death deeply wounded the hip-hop community. One of the famous names that devastated his death was his close friend, The Game.
The Game penned down a touching letter in honor of Nipsey Hussle’s death anniversary and shared a mural of the late rapper. This amazing mural made by Californian artist Mark Paul Deren.
Here’s what The Game penned:
“Hussle man….. I can’t believe it’s been one year since you departed from this crazy world. ‘Time flies’ has an entirely different meaning these days. I know you’re proud of what your life’s mission has accomplished in the past 12 months. You have truly touched the hearts of people all around the world. Your face is everywhere…
Your music is timeless & your words are heard loud & clear. There are newborns named ‘Ermias’ & I can’t get on anything and not see someone quoting you. A true king to his people with a heart of gold. A pure soul who knew exactly what the world needed for motivation. My only wish is that you could’ve been here to see it all unfold yourself.
Here for times like now when people need to be uplifted the most. The ultimate sacrifice: surrendering your life to God so that others would learn that there is much more to life than to care only for one’s self. The world is about to hard reset & I’d like to think that you were one of the reasons for what’s to come in the future.
A world where we have to think before we act. Care for those around us. Remember the importance of the everyday essentials, clean food, water, herbs & taking care of the most important thing on earth… Humanity. Being forced to stay inside & with those closest to you is not a bad thing in my eyes.
Yes, the pandemic is claiming lives & my loves goes out to the families of those lost… But, I see this as a peaceful time that we will never see again in our lifetime. A time to reflect, empower, strategize & focus on how to make a true impact on what will soon be the new world.
Things will never be the same after this & it is on all of us to adapt efficiently & contribute positively for all of us so that we can live in a world as one. The earth as we know it is sick…
We are all home waiting for what’s next. While we’re waiting, let’s not add to the problem but prepare to be apart of the solution. We all need the U.S. Especially now…
My love is with every single person on this earth during these times. This is the mark of a new beginning. I’m ready enough for all of us. #TheMarathonContinues #LongLiveNipseyHussle 🏁 [@madsteez thank you for this piece, can’t wait to hang it]”
