The Game Pens An Emotional Tribute To His Late Father: 'Your Absence Is Eating Away At My Soul'

Prayers up for the Compton rapper.

Published February 5, 2018

Over the past week, The Game has invited fans into an extremely emotional chapter of his life as he mourns the painful loss of his fatherGeorge Taylor

Since Taylor's passing on Jan. 17, the Compton rapper has taken to social media to share how he is coping with the unfortunate situation. But, his most recent Instagram posts highlight perhaps the toughest part of the entire ordeal — saying goodbye to a loved one.

Early Sunday morning (Feb. 4), The Documentary 2 rapper took to Instagram to share an emotional tribute to his father after laying him to rest. "The reason I keep posting is because I am very sad & myself, my life & my family have always been shared with my fans & I am thankful for you allowing me to grieve with you," Game began the lengthy memorial. 

"Always know, I am no different than any of you," he continued. "I am human & when in times like this is when I need you the most. I say that to say.... I am very appreciative for all of you... all the comments, the DM’s, the amount of love & support you’ve all shown me in my time of darkness does not & will not ever go unnoticed or unappreciated."

"I come to you fully humbled with an entirely different understanding of LIFE, LOVE & DEATH," Game added.

"Some questions I have about how or why will never be answered and that’s something I will have to learn to live with along with the fact that I’ll never see my father again in this lifetime. That last sentence itself could force an ocean of tears down my face but tonite I am all cried out."

Take a look at the emotional tribute below.
