Game Honors Trayvon Martin On His Birthday

Game celebrates the memory of Trayvon Martin on what would have been his 19th birthday.

Game made an Instagram post and caption today celebrating what would have been Trayvon Martin's 19th birthday. 

"To day Trayvon Martin would've been 19 years old. Happy Birthday & may your soul be carried by angels your entire journey through heaven - The Game," Game said in a caption for an Instagram post featuring a photograph of Martin.

In 2012, Game spoke about Martin's death

"I think that from the beginning of mankind, we as a people have always been targeted," Game said at the time. "For some reason, people don't think that they need any excuse to kill us, beat us, hit us, run us over, disrespect us or anything like that...I'm far from racist. I'm very educated and intellectual and I understand how life works and how people of all colors exist under the sun, but it just seems like more than not black people are, I don't know, there's always some negative occurrence that goes on in our existence. This is just another reminder that stupidity still exists."

In 2013, Game spoke about having a tattoo of Martin and discussed Martin's mother's reaction to the portrait of her son.

"I actually got a text message from [Trayvon Martin's] mom, which was cool," Game said at the time. "She appreciated the gesture. And I get tattoos all the time and that was just that whole story. I got a kid and I just thought that was so unfortunate, so I did it.”

George Zimmerman, the man accused of murdering Martin on February 26, 2012, was found not guilty of second degree murder and manslaughter in 2013. Game recently volunteered to fight Zimmerman in a boxing match

    I hope Game gave Trayvon's parents some money for how much he's been using his name for publicity.

    Damn, Game just gave a salute to a murdered youth and white people are attacking him for it, Black people need to wise up and rise up, let's love ourselves and recognize that we are not each others enemy, the enemy is the white boy mocking the death of your brother.

    game makes a career out of glamorizing crime and gangbanging and now wants to act all self-righteous when a kid raised on that kind of bullshit got himself killed because of it.

      he was just pointing out how ironic it is for someone like Game, who got rich rapping about being a violent blood gang member seems so concerned all of a sudden about 1 dead black kid, even though kids probably dying in his hood everyday, some of which were probably influenced by his music which promotes gangs and violence.

      original comment speaking that real shit. you know his next song is gonna be about guns and violence though.

      lmao the "rap = movies" argument? look kid. rap is entertainment for people who know better. i can listen to the most ignorant trap shit in the world and carry on with my life as a citizen just fine. but if you're uneducated and poor as fuck with no rolemodels you don't have that kind of distance from the material. nobody is throwing on blue facepaint and waving swords and fighting for scotland ala braveheart. but plenty of people are dying over stupid bullshit like being "disrespected." HIV/AIDs infection rates are off the charts in poor black communities because of an appalling attitude toward sex. it's also the part of the population with the lowest life expectancy rates BECAUSE OF HOMICIDE. so take your retarded comparisons and shove them up your ass. you're a goddamn retard and you don't know anything.

      Mel Gibson promotes murder and bloodshed in movies like The Patriot and Braveheart so I get pissed off and turn really red when he speaks out against violence in Palestine like he is some self righteous prick.

      Fucking Agree!

  • Chi-Ill

    Yeah he would have been alive and turning 19 if you wouldn't had been on his shit! No one was there besides Treyvon, George Z and couple of witnesses! All evidence pointed to Zimmermens innocence in a court of law! So stop with the shits already!

  • shiettt

    Game didn't even know this dude and since he got killed he is acting like he was his best friend or something. Don't get me wrong I liked his music a couple years ago but now he is just a attention whore
