The Game was quick to hit the booth after hearing of music icon Prince’s untimely passing yesterday (April 21). The product of the studio session is a song aptly titled “Rest In Purple,” featuring songstress Lorine Chia.
“@Prince was such a huge inspiration to my life from a child watching #PurpleRain til the time I met him at Universal Music in 2006,” the Compton rapper wrote in an Instagram post. “I was a fan then & I am a fan now ! His death was untimely & tragic… I’m sure the world is saddened as I was when I woke up to the news today.”
While The Game mourned Prince in song, many of his peers expressed their deepest condolences to The Purple One and his family via social media.
