If you still can’t believe Prince is gone, you’re not alone. The untimely death of the music icon sent shockwaves across the world earlier today—leaving everyone from Justin Timberlake to ?uestlove floored by the sudden and tragic loss.
Throughout the day, we’ve seen friends, family, and fans share their memories of The Artist. And as the night falls, The Game offers his condolences through song—releasing “Rest In Purple” in honor of The Purple One.
Produced by Bongo (who will be the lone producer behind The Game’s upcoming 1992 project), “Rest In Purple” plays off Prince’s “When Doves Cry” and features vocals from Lorine Chia.
Take a listen to The Game’s tribute below.
@Prince was such a huge inspiration to my life from a child watching #PurpleRain til the time I met him at Universal Music in 2006…. I was a fan then & I am a fan now ! His death was untimely & tragic… I’m sure the world is saddened as I was when I woke up to the news today…. Long story short, @bongobytheway hit me & told me stop by the studio & record a small tribute to him & his legacy & once I heard the beat, I hit @LorineChia to do the hook….. Hope you appreciate it….
