The Game Honors Fans
I wake up in Vilnius, Lithuania today & the 1st thing I see is this picture. I was just a little boy from the projects…. never thought in a million years, anything I would ever do in life would touch anyone in my own city let alone across the globe. I’ve always said that I share fans with no other artist in the world & this is a reminder of how true that is. Over the years I’ve seen so many tattoos with my face, logo or lyrics & every time I see a new one I feel like I did when I saw the 1st…. surprised, so appreciative & honored to have touched people on that large of a scale….. My fans are THE GAME fans & I’ve always dedicated my music & my life to them & my children. I am where I am in life because of a decision made by each of you individually to support me year after year & for that support I will give you the same love & loyalty for as long as I breathe. I am forever grateful & indebted to you all…… Thank You, sincerely Hurricane Game #45
