Like many in the Hip-Hop community, Compton rapper Game was highly affected by the sudden death of the mother of Tupac Shakur, Afeni Shakur. The rapper made a tribute song to Afeni and all mothers, called “Mama.”
Just in time for Mothers Day weekend, Game releases a song dedicated to the mamas. With Sonyae Eelise on the hook singing “mama,” Game says, “We ain’t sh*t w/o our mamas.” At the end of the song Game makes sure to give a R.I.P. to Afeni Shakur and gives a snippet of Tupac’s track, “Dear Mama.”
Game also dropped a tribute to Prince when he died called, “Rest In Purple.”In the song, Game laments the death of the late legend, while also celebrating Prince’s musical legacy.
Rest In Peace to everyone we lost.
