The Game sounded off on Instagram at folks who say he’s exploiting Nipsey Hussle for his personal gain:
“I been the UNDERDAWG in this rap s— for 15 + years so the hate is expected & has fueled my entire career…. I’m good with that ! Yesterday there was a lot of bulls— floating around the net. Whenever you’re trying to do good in life, the devil sends his soldiers. I walk wit God & will not be detoured from my mission. Anything I’ve done since bro passed on to heaven has been pure, honest & from the heart. I been rich damn near 20 years off my own hard work & dedication so there’s no need to scheme or try to profit off anyone’s name especially my n—- “Nip”. I’ve only done my part in keeping his vision alive, his memory floating & his legacy golden. I’ve kept in close touch with “Blacc Sam” (nips big brother) & haven’t done anything with nips name or likeness without Sam’s blessing. A lot of people wouldn’t know that because you don’t know me, him or what transpired behind closed doors. Everyone loves to assume, jump to conclusions or rush to hate on a n—- whose done more for WEST COAST RAP then anyone. I rolled down my window & took nips demo with @jstone_allmoneyin standing right next to him at the prime of my career, brought him to the studio & took him on tour & around the world on my own dime, along with @kendricklamar @jayrock @topdawgent & fought with my own homies from my hood damn near every show over having crips on tour with me. But I held my own & did what I thought was right for my COAST. I’m single handedly responsible for so many careers out here & have never taken money, tried to sign niggas or asked for anything in return but for them to flourish & be great. I say that to say, before anyone fox’s their mouth or get to spewing dirt on my name for being who I am, do ya history. I’m THE GAME, I been THE GAME & nobody on this earth will tell me what I can or can’t do especially when I know I move with a pure heart & good intention. Wasn’t going to even do this but I figured a one solid message would get my point across. Hope I’m not misunderstood.. & while I got you, go to @themarathonclothing & sell out their new #Prolific.
