West Coast rapper Game is still paying his respect to late hip-hop artists XXXTentacion and Lil Peep. The Los Angeles native went to social media to salute both fallen rap artists with a pic of late music icon 2Pac.
Game went to Instagram last night (July 18) with heartfelt words toward the three late musicians.

Last month, Game explained how much of a personal impact X’s passing had on him.
For some reason, he been heavy on my heart since the day he died. Don’t know what exactly my heart is trying to convey but I definitely feel an obligation to protect this new generation of artist. In studio thinkin bout all y’all… be creative, live life, have fun, enjoy your moment & try your hardest to bob & weave thru the madness. Fuck whoever don’t understand….. hip hop takes on all shapes & forms as it continuously evolves & I love its current state. Take advantage of every second while living out your dream 🙏🏾
A few days ago, Florida cops arrested a 22-year-old in connection to XXX’s murder.
Michael Boatwright, 22, was the one of the two suspects who approached the rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, and shot him when he was leaving the Riva Motorsports shop in Deerfield Beach, north of Miami on June 18, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said. The suspect was first arrested on drug-related charges on July 5 and served with an arrest warrant on Tuesday for first-degree murder while being held at Broward Sheriff’s Office Main Jail, the sheriff’s office said.

Earlier this summer, cops arrested suspect Dedrick D. Williams for his alleged role in the murder.
As we reported … the Broward County Sheriff’s Office also identified 22-year-old Robert Allen as a person of interest in connection with the killing of the 20-year-old rapper. Cops had said Allen was on surveillance video at the motorcycle shop in Pompano Beach where XXX was shopping before he was brutally gunned down. Allen is still wanted. The arrest comes a few weeks after Dedrick D. Williams was arrested and booked for first-degree murder. (TMZ)
