The Game stated on the Full Send Podcast that he saw a corpse for the first time at the age of 7. The Compton native said he was playing football in the street when one person died, and it was the first murder he had ever witnessed.
“It was just a drive-by shooting, somebody got a hit. It was late out. And we were outside playing and you know. Of course, people are always like, some people run left, away, and other nosy ass people come towards whatever happened. So, me and my homies were outside playing. I mean, we weren’t homies, we were seven.
“But yeah. We were throwing a football in the street, which is crazy. Because when you think about playing football in the street with cars parked on both sides, it’s the wildest shit, right? You can be running in that shit all the time. But yeah. We just walked down there man. and were just like, ‘Oh, so and so got shot.’ And it just be over like that.”
The famous rapper also talked about a death story that he found very strange.
“The craziest one I’ve ever seen is probably. I saw two Spanish dudes get shot in a Buick Regal,” he explained. “Two bullet holes through the back window, both dead, and one of their eyeballs was stuck. You remember how the old locks used to be, you could kinda pull them up? His eye was like stuck in that.”
He continued, “I can remember just wanting to lift his head up out of that ’cause it was kind of a fucked up way for people to see you, you know? I remember feeling real bad about that. But yeah man, I’ve seen tons of murders and shit.”
