One day after facing backlash for rapping some lyrics people believed to be directed at slain California rapper Indian Red Boy, The Game stepped forward to clarify his bars.
On Tuesday (July 13), Game jumped onto Instagram and said that his lyrics, bars in which he rapped “Disrespecting Nip, the type of shit you niggas get killed for,” were not about Indian Red Boy, a person people said vandalized a Nipsey Hussle mural.
“Understand that I meant no disrespect to no Pirus, no bloods, no L.A. niggas, no gangbangers, period,” Game said in the video. “Speaking on the Indian Red Boy situation, number one, R.I.P. to the homie. Love to his whole family, his close homies, the whole Inglewood family, and all the Pirus across the world, period.”
Elaborating further, the 1992 artist said that the bars he spit to his IG Live audience were old ones.
“I been wrote those bars, those bars been in my phone since May or April,” the Compton rapper revealed. “Yesterday, I decided to put the shit out on the Live, bad timing on my behalf. I feel niggas, niggas feel like I disrespected somebody but it’s really just bad timing. On me, I’ma get with the big homies, some of the lil homies and I’ma get with blood’s family and help bury blood and throw some chips his way for the funeral.”
The lyrics in question are bars Game let loose during a Monday Instagram live session. In them, he raps: “All white Air Force 1s/Niggas coming through the hood with them air force guns/We got more Dracs than the Billboard/Disrespecting Nip, the type of shit you niggas get killed for/We not gon’ stand for the disrespect/Get this .45 Bell pressed against your neck.”
Indian Red Boy was shot and killed in California while he was on Instagram Live with a friend last Thursday. While people have suggested that his death was in retaliation for a Nipsey mural being vandalized, there’s nothing that points toward him ever touching the mural.
