West Coast rapper Game is keeping things 100. The hip-hop veteran has come forward to address anyone thinking he’s repping late friend/rap artist Nipsey Hussle for clout and financial gain.

Last night, the Los Angeles native hit up Instagram to defend his image and motivation for repping Hussle.

I been the UNDERDAWG in this rap shit for 15 + years so the hate is expected & has fueled my entire career…. I’m good with that ! Yesterday there was a lot of bullshit floating around the net. Whenever you’re trying to do good in life, the devil sends his soldiers. I walk wit God & will not be detoured from my mission. Anything I’ve done since bro passed on to heaven has been pure, honest & from the heart. I been rich damn near 20 years off my own hard work & dedication so there’s no need to scheme or try to profit off anyone’s name especially my nigga “Nip”. I’ve only done my part in keeping his vision alive, his memory floating & his legacy golden. I’ve kept in close touch with “Blacc Sam” (nips big brother) & haven’t done anything with nips name or likeness without Sam’s blessing. A lot of people wouldn’t know that because you don’t know me, him or what transpired behind closed doors. Everyone loves to assume, jump to conclusions or rush to hate on a nigga whose done more for WEST COAST RAP then anyone. I rolled down my window & took nips demo with @jstone_allmoneyin standing right next to him at the prime of my career, brought him to the studio & took him on tour & around the world on my own dime, along with @kendricklamar @jayrock @topdawgent & fought with my own homies from my hood damn near every show over having crips on tour with me. But I held my own & did what I thought was right for my COAST. I’m single handedly responsible for so many careers out here & have never taken money, tried to sign niggas or asked for anything in return but for them to flourish & be great. I say that to say, before anyone fox’s their mouth or get to spewing dirt on my name for being who I am, do ya history. I’m THE GAME, I been THE GAME & nobody on this earth will tell me what I can or can’t do especially when I know I move with a pure heart & good intention. Wasn’t going to even do this but I figured a one solid message would get my point across. Hope I’m not misunderstood.. & while I got you, go to @themarathonclothing & sell out their new #Prolific drop !!!! #TMC #LongLiveHussle 🏁 #REALNIGGASKNOWWHATIVEDONEOUTHERE #FuckWhoDont 💯

The rap star also relied on his Instagram Story to address the rumors claiming he used Hussle’s popular “Prolific” face tat to make money.

This week, various people went online to claim Game’s new Prolific merchandise helped make him big bucks.

Earlier in the week, the rap heavyweight announced the successful release of his Prolific merch.
