Although he never shows his face in any of the footage, the rapper is talking the entire time. It is easy to see The Game is distraught over the fact Nipsey Hussle was shot outside his place of business.
In one of the videos, the rapper is disgusted by the reality his friend was shot in Crenshaw because Nipsey Hussle was doing so many great things for the Crenshaw area. The Game is putting the streets of Los Angeles on blast in a similar manner to what Jay-Z did when rapper XXXTentacion was gunned down in broad daylight in Florida. Beyonce’s husband put the streets of Florida on blast back then.
The entire music community has been reeling since the news Nipsey Hussle was gunned down in front of his Marathon Clothing store, which is located south of Crenshaw, broke yesterday. He was a talented rapper who worked with several hip-hop artists, including The Game. The latter had a tough time last night as he broke down in utter disbelief over the day’s events.
