West Coast rapper Game has Tupac Shakur in his blood. The hip-hop veteran has stepped forward to remember the late rap icon.

To honor Pac’s memory, Game released his new “Heaven 4 A Gangster.”

Today is the 21st anniversary of 2Pac’s fatal murder and every year the Hip-Hop community and the world mourns his untimely death. The Game pays tribute to him today with the release of a new song called ‘Heaven 4 A Gangster’. (Hip Hop N More)

The hip-hop heavyweight has since explained the motivation behind his new tribute track.

“‘Heaven 4 a Gangster” was my perception of what I thought the mental premonitions of Tupac and hip-hop would be seen as today,” The Game tells Billboard. “Are we understood or are our testimonies categorized as a sin? Again is there a ‘Heaven 4 a Gangster?’ I wanna to know.” (Billboard)

Since yesterday, various hip-hop artists have reflected on 2Pac’s legacy.

RIP to a Real One!!! 🙏🏽👑🐐
