The Game is using his public platform in a very overt manner, in light of Nipsey Hussle’s passing and issues it touches on politically. Just yesterday, the Compton-born rapper went on Instagram lauding the essential role Black Americans play in creating the cultural capitals the rest of the country benefits over. “We would cripple AMERICA if we moved back to AFRICA,” The Game posted on his storyboard, in accordance with the Black Nationalist movement taken up by Marcus Garvey in the early 20th Century.
He’s absolutely right, much of America’s soft power is derived from the works of Black artists, especially now that Hip-Hop is viewed the world over as the “Be-all And End-all” of cultural consumption. For starter’s, the idea rooted in political and economic policies he might be articulate enough to pronounce within Instagram’s minimal character limit.
