His death was untimely & tragic... I’m sure the world is saddened as I was when I woke up to the news today.”
The rapper wasted little time recording “Rest In Purple” with help from Lorine Chia. The songs finds the Game contemplating death, celebrating all things purple, and referencing various Prince tracks: “Pop Life,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Diamonds And Pearls,” and more. Listen below.
