On Thursday, July 8, 2021, Indian Boy Red was murdered in his car while on Instagram Live. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed he was dead at the scene of the incident. There were rumors online that the late rapper was a member of the Bloods gang and he was killed for dissing a mural of Nipsey Hussle.

Following the death of the rapper, The Game went live on his Instagram account on Monday, July 12, 2021. During his Instagram Live, the rapper shared a freestyle; where he referenced the consequences of disrespecting Nipsey Hussle. His lyrics:

All white Air Force 1s/N***as coming through the hood with them air force guns/We got more Drakes than the Billboard/Disrespecting Nip, type of shit you n***as get killed for/We not gon’ stand for the disrespect/Get this .45 Bell pressed against your neck.

However, The Game has come out to address the situation, revealing that he wrote the lyrics months ago, and he meant no disrespect to Indian Red Boy.

I’m on here to address a situation that’s been coming to my DMs and my phone all morning about some bars I said yesterday on my Live.

Number one, I ain’t mean no disrespect to Indian Red Boy, RIP, his family, anybody close to him and definitely not the Inglewood families at all or no Blood set in LA or none of that shit. Not only did I not mean no disrespect to them n-ggas, I don’t mean no disrespect to no LA gangs, no Crips, no Bloods, no eses, none of that.

This my city, shit, I stand on my rag, I done took this Piru shit around the world, you know what I’m saying? I’ve done been at it with Crips coming up in my career, I’ve done been at it with my old homies sometimes and all that shit. I ain’t even too much know about what happened to blood or his whole situation or none of that, definitely not to be speaking on it.

Like I told some of the homies, I be having bars in my phone all the time. I had them bars in my shit since like April or May or some shit… it’s just bad timing. And since it’s bad timing, and n-ggas feel a way or n-ggas feel how they feel, I’ma rectify the situation right here and I’ma get with blood family and straighten it out. Whether I got to help bury blood or put money on his funeral, do whatever I gotta do.
