The Game Honors Nipsey Hussle With Tattoo & Message At Memorial Site “God Will Rise”

The Game honors Nipsey Hussle with a giant tattoo on his chest.

The Compton rapper was one of Nipsey Hussle‘s celebrity friends who took his death really hard. The Game previously posted a video of himself in tears while expressing how saddened he was about Nips death. This week, he hit up his favorite tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado at Black Anchor L.A. He posted a video clip of the tattoo artist getting the ink done. The portrait features Nipsey Hussle with Crenshaw written below it.

The Game also visited the fan memorial site where Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in front of his The Marathon clothing store in South Los Angeles close to where Nip grew up. “As we prepare to lay you to rest tomorrow, the city is hurt,” the rapper wrote on IG.

“Family, friends & fans from far & near are unified in your memory bro, your legacy will never be forgotten as long as I walk the earth,” Game continues. “Thank you for everything that you were. I love you forever Nip & I will do my part in making sure THE MARATHON continues #LongLiveKingNip.”
