Writing on his Twitter page, Game tweeted photos from his grandfather’s funeral.
“Funeral’s are the worst. R.I.P. Papa !!! a.k.a. the Yungest Old man I know,” Game tweeted February 11th.”
“Tigg you holdin in down. Been strong all week. At least Papa got to meet & spend time with ALL his great-grandchildren before left here.”

Late last month, rapper N.O.R.E. announced the passing of his grandfather.
“God bless my grandpops who just now passed away I’m so hurt and crushed right now don’t know what 2 do,” N.O. tweeted January 20th.
“Don’t know how imma pack for Europe all I’m thinking bout is my grand pops in heaven right now”

“My g pops a Chicago Pr og!!! Belee dat” (N.O.R.E.’s Twitter)
Outside of a relative passing, Game is currently dealing with some legal woes.
The Game is officially on the hook … again … this time for $90,999 — after the rapper allegedly failed to pay for some ridiculously expensive custom jewelry he commissioned over three years ago. An L.A. judge handed the order down last week … demanding Game — real name Jayceon Taylor — settle his astronomical balance with jewelry company Lemmerman’s Inc. stat. (TMZ)
Additional information claimed Game ordered multiple customized jewelry pieces.
The order stems from an outstanding debt first made public in a complaint filed last year. The original filing asserted that Game received a 14k white gold chain with white stones and a 14k yellow gold chain with yellow stones for $15,000 apiece; a diamond stud for $4,000; a 14k white gold and a 14k yellow gold 5-row bracelet for $17,500 apiece; and two other golditems for $30,000. The overall debt amounts to $99,000, but Lemmerman’s claims that Game did manage to pay off some of his debt some years back. Since then, Game has refused payment on the items and now must tack on additional interest fees. (The Boom Box)
