Los Angeles, CA – The Game is continuing his #OneNipPostADay initiative on Instagram and this time, he’s diving into his past with the Bloods. In another lengthy caption, Mr. Los Angeles Confidential recalled taking Nip on tour and the consequences he suffered as a result.

“Had hella fights & fell out with 1/2 my hood the time I took you on tour,” Game explains. “Most niggas I still ain’t cool wit to this day. A young blood nigga from the westside of Compton bringing a gang of rollin 60’s crips on tour was doing the most. I had to explain daily to my homies, how it was bigger than Compton, bigger than LA & that having that state of mind would only get us so far in this shit.

“My niggas that stayed down with me saw my vision come into fruition & the niggas who didn’t get it then & still don’t now are somewhere mad & bitter as fuck with nothing but hate in their heart because we kept it moving & made our union BIGGER THAN LIFE.”

Had hella fights & fell out with 1/2 my hood the time I took you on tour. Most niggas I still ain’t cool wit to this day. A young blood nigga from the westside of Compton bringing a gang of rollin 60’s crips on tour was doing the most. I had to explain daily to my homies, how it was bigger than Compton, bigger than LA & that having that state of mind would only get us so far in this shit… My niggas that stayed down with me saw my vision come into fruition & the niggas who didn’t get it then & still don’t now are somewhere mad & bitter as fuck with nothing but hate in their heart because we kept it moving & made our union BIGGER THAN LIFE. Nip used to hit the stage & perform and nobody would really be into it because like any new artist, people don’t know your music or aren’t familiar with your face so the 1st time you touch the stage they just stare at you waiting to see what energy you put out before they give theirs back. He started off a lil hesitant but he did his thing & then came off stage after his set & said “Chuck, these niggas don’t fuck wit my shit”. I would say in return “Naw, nigga.. these are Game fans & they just know you or the music yet but watch in a couple shows when you get comfortable, you gone kill it”. I told my nigga the same thing happened to me when @snoopdogg took me on tour, u just gotta push through bro. We were in Dallas, Texas then. Next night we in Houston & I told him before he went on “Tonite, just go out there close ya eyes & spit that shit from ya heart as if nobody was in the crowd” & then open your eyes & I bet you see a a difference. 20 min later, he came off stage smiling big as hell & said “I got these niggas now Chuck, I know what to do”. From that moment on, my nigga had everything he needed to push forward & put everything into motion for himself & look at what he became.. Look at what he did, was able to accomplish for his people & this was only the beginning. The world didn’t know what was to come in the next couple months & the plans he had to expand from Crenshaw & Slauson to other neighboring hoods, cities etc.. They took my nigga way 2 early & that’s what hurts the most #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway 🏁

Game continued by describing what it was actually like being on the road with the late Grammy Award-nominated rapper. He remembered what it was like when Nip was just getting started and the frustration that often came along with being a then-unknown artist.

“Nip used to hit the stage & perform and nobody would really be into it because like any new artist, people don’t know your music or aren’t familiar with your face so the 1st time you touch the stage they just stare at you waiting to see what energy you put out before they give theirs back,” he writes. “He started off a lil hesitant but he did his thing & then came off stage after his set & said ‘Chuck, these niggas don’t fuck wit my shit.’

“I would say in return ‘Naw, nigga.. these are Game fans & they just know you or the music yet but watch in a couple shows when you get comfortable, you gone kill it.'”

As The Game went on, he compared Nip’s situation to his own experience touring with Snoop Dogg several years ago. He marveled at Nip’s perseverance and willingness to learn.

“I told my nigga the same thing happened to me when @snoopdogg took me on tour, u just gotta push through bro,” he says. “We were in Dallas, Texas then. Next night we in Houston & I told him before he went on ‘Tonite, just go out there close ya eyes & spit that shit from ya heart as if nobody was in the crowd’ & then open your eyes & I bet you see a a difference. 20 min later, he came off stage smiling big as hell & said ‘I got these niggas now Chuck, I know what to do.’

“From that moment on, my nigga had everything he needed to push forward & put everything into motion for himself & look at what he became.. Look at what he did, was able to accomplish for his people & this was only the beginning. The world didn’t know what was to come in the next couple months & the plans he had to expand from Crenshaw & Slauson to other neighboring hoods, cities etc.. They took my nigga way 2 early & that’s what hurts the most.”

Nip was shot and killed on March 31 in front of his Marathon Clothing store in South L.A. In the wake of his death, the outpouring of love and support has been insurmountable.

As of earlier this month, the intersection of Slauson and Crenshaw where the murder occurred has been renamed Nipsey Hussle Square in his honor.
