Mourning and tributes for the late Nipsey Hussle continue to pour in, as The Game recalled a time where the LA rapper help quell a feud involving Meek Mill. The Compton, Ca. rapper took to Instagram, reminiscing over his slain friend and his “always pure” heart in trying to find the better in his common peers.

“I used ask you like “Nip, why you just a better human than me” & you would say “Naw Chuck, you do the same shit as me it’s just harder to notice from the inside.. but I see it”. But really, you were. I mean, I love, I care, I give, I help, I motivate, I…… do the best I can for as many people as possible but your love for people was different. I got mad at you when you called me about the @meekmill beef trying to squash it & I told you “stop ridin for these n*ggas, this the West” !!! & you told me “you gone do what you wanna do Chuck & I’m always with you but that’s the bro I’m telling you, I talked to Meek & he ready to let it go,” he wrote on Instagram.

Game decided not to adhere to Nip’s advice but later had a change of heart after feeling disheartened once Meek was sent to jail for violating his probation and was later released on bail in April 2018.

“I didn’t listen, so the beef lingered & then Meek got locked up & I remember feeling really bad about that. Then he got outta jail & in the midst of everything he was going through that day, he called me & said he’d been thinking about me in jail & one of the 1st things he wanted to do when he got out was put our differences aside. So we did. I called you, told you & I could hear the smile thru the phone before you saying “Told You Chuck…. we can do so much more if we are unified in this shit”. Your heart bro, your heart. Always pure, always solid,” he continued.


A month before his passing, Nipsey spoke about a collaboration album with the Philly emcee that was expected to drop this summer. The interview —which was on The Cruz Show for LA’s REAL 92.3— can be heard here:
