The Game pays his respects to three of hip-hop’s fallen soldiers.
In the image, which was shared by a fan who likely crafted it using Photoshop, XXX wears his iconic hairstyle and looks down at his phone while Peep prepares a bottle of lean. We’re sure other photos of the late Gus were available to be used but, for some reason, the creator of the image decided to portray him in this light. Pac stands between the two, embracing both of them with his arms around each artist, looking off into the distance.
Game explained why he decided to repost the image, writing that, “Sometimes hip hop takes a lot more than it gives.” The West Coast recording artist clarified that he is not trying to put the three on the same level but that, “if [2Pac] was here would’ve more than likely embraced this new generation of rappers along with the last because that’s how passionate he was about the children of then that would become the adults of now flourishing in life.”
Choosing to upload the post one month after we lost X was probably a conscious decision for Game. Take a look at the powerful flick below.
