Tyrese Does Beautiful Thing For His Friend/Rapper, The Game, After His Dad Suddenly Dies

Posted On : January 20, 2018

“Family will always show UP for family,” those were Tyrese’s words for his friend/former G Unit rapper, The Game. Right now The Game is going through a really tough time, following the sudden death of his father, George Taylor.

In case you haven’t heard, on Wednesday, January 17, 2018, Game’s dad died unexpectedly in his sleep. He was 65 years young and it was reported by TMZ, that a ‘family member found him unresponsive in his home in Apple Valley, CA … and alerted a neighbor who called 911. The Fire Dept. arrived at 8:30 AM [Wednesday] morning. He was unresponsive, and transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.’

Ever since his father’s passing, The Game hasn’t spoken out and has remained off social media, understandably so. But it wasn’t until Tyrese popped up at The Game’s front door without warning, that he finally surfaced. Tyrese revealed that he wanted to lift the brotha’s spirits up, so he brought his personal chef, Chef Forbes, with him to  do what family does for one another at times like this- cook him a meal and be that shoulder for him to lean on if need be.

In an Instagram post Tyrese shared on Friday, he showed how he and The Game they chopped it up over a meal of grilled salmon and risotto, with a side dish of steamed asparagus and cauliflower. The Game seemed low in spirit, yet very grateful that his homie stopped through to show support. He admitted that if Tyrese hadn’t popped up unannounced, “I would literally be crying for 24 hours man.” Check out the posts below…

The Game’s Rocky Relationship With Dad

Although The Game is very upset over his father’s passing, there was a time in their relationship when it was pretty much nonexistent. The Game rapped about his on-again/off-again relationship with his dad on his 2014 song, “Bloody Moon”:

My father left me when I was seven, at a home
Left me but took his chrome, I looked up and blood was gone
Man, fuck it, guess in the world I’m all alone
My mother was too naïve so when he left she followed along

Once The Game became a man, he and his Pops eventually began to rebuild their relationship, which reportedly still was not an easy task and had bouts of on-again/off-again reconnections peppered in between. It’s unclear what the status of their relationship was at the time of George Taylor’s passing, but hopefully The Game and his family are holding as best as they can.
