The Game Says Nipsey Hussle Told Him to Squash Beef With Meek Mill
In the aftermath of Nipsey Hussle's tragic passing, more stories of the late rapper's impact on the rap game and his community are coming to light.
"I got mad at you when you called me about the @meekmill beef trying to squash it & I told you “stop ridin for these niggas, this the West” !!!" The Game said in one part of his lengthy Instagram caption he posted Thursday (April 18). "& 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”. I didn’t listen, so the beef lingered & then Meek got locked up & I remember feeling really bad about that."
The Game and Meek Mill's well-documented beef began back in June 2016 when the Compton rapper said he wanted to fight Meek Mill for allegedly implicating him in the robbing of Sean Kingston's jewelry to LAPD. Even after police documents proved the Philly rapper wasn't involved, the former Game unloaded some ferocious bars aimed at Meek, and the two ended up being in a fairly prolonged rap battle (See "92 Bars" and Meek Mill's "OOOUUU (Remix)").
After beefing for nearly two years, The Game finally settled his issues with Meek once the Philly rapper was finally released from prison in 2018. The West Coast rapper says Nipsey was the one who encouraged him to make things right with Meek.
"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," The GHame continues in his caption. "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. Always my brother.... “THE GREAT @NIPSEYHUSSLE” !!!! Feel his energy, I know you do. Look around, the person you see next to you does too ! #TheMarathonContinues 🏁🏁🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway"
