The Game honors Afeni Shakur. Just in time for Mother’s Day, the Compton rapper shows his appreciation for Tupac’s late mother on “Mama” featuring Sonyae.
He quotes lyrics from Tupac’s 1995 classic “Dear Mama” and salutes all the mothers including his own on the touching tribute, produced by StreetRunner and Tarik Azzouz.
“And even though your only son grew up to be a thug, you ain’t never stopped showin’ me love,” raps Game, adding, “We ain’t shit without our mamas.”
He also honored Afeni’s memory with a post on Instagram. “In the wake of Afeni Shakur’s untimely death, I would like to wish her well on her journey to heaven,” he wrote. “My condolences are with Sekyiwa Shakur & their immediate family in their time of mourning. You have endured a great loss but her soul can now fly free & she is reunited with her only son in time to hug him for Mother’s Day.”
