The Game and his father have had their ups and downs throughout the years. In 2014, he opened up about their strained relationship on “Bloody Moon.” “My father left me when I was seven, at a home,” he rapped on the track. “Left me, but took his chrome / I looked up and blood was gone / Man, fvck it, guess in the world, I’m all alone.”
Last week, Game posted a video of a candle in memory of his father. “I lost my father,” he said in the clip. “I can’t sleep. Just a few days ago, about short of a week. All these feelings inside. I cannot explain how there’s so much love and it turned into all this pain. I locked myself in the house. Guess I needed my space.
“Stopped waking up and looking in the mirror because every time I do, I see your face,” he added. “I ain’t just lose a father. I lost a friend. I’m the one that has to live with the fact that I’ll never see you again. We had some good times, we had a whole lot of bad, but no matter what time it was, you never stopped being my dad.”
