West Coast rapper Game, Shyne, Xzibit and more celebrities have taken the time to acknowledge the massive fatal attacks of 9/11 just over a decade after they took place.
Although known for representing his Compton background, Game paid homage to the victims of 9/11.
“It’s September 11th… Just want to say that I personally haven’t forgot about all that was lost. Those who died will ALWAYS be remembered.,” he tweeted. (Game’s Twitter)
Shyne took a more critical approach to his acknowledgement by also painting the former Bush Administration as political gangsters.
“Can’t believe its 11 years since the tragedies of 9-11! Prayers and thoughts to all those who lost loved ones on this horrendous day,” he tweeted.
“Dick Cheney & the bush dynasty are some of the biggest gangsters in American History!” (Shyne’s Twitter)

Public memorials and acts of remembrance are expected to take place throughout the day.
Americans paused again Tuesday to mark the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks with familiar ceremony, but also a sense that it’s time to move forward after a decade of remembrance. Hundreds gathered at the World Trade Center site in New York, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa., to read the names of nearly 3,000 victims killed in the worst terror attack in U.S. history. President Barack Obama was to attend the Pentagon memorial, and Vice President Joe Biden was to speak in Pennsylvania. (Los Angeles Times)
