West Coast rapper Game agrees with Anderson .Paak. In response to the R&B star’s new tattoo about posthumous music, the former G-Unit member has come forward with nothing but support.
Game Agrees With Anderson .Paak’s Tattoo About Posthumous Music
Game went strong with the same attitude as .Paak. He gave nothing but love for the Silk Sonic singer and also asked how the theoretically passed away artist’s vision is supposed to be carried out if they aren’t here.
“Number one, you gotta respect his — and everyone’s — artistry. Anderson is like my brother, and I think for him, when I read it, I thought it was dope. I think I’m in agreeance with that, man. I don’t want my shit out either. People always fu*k the vision up. If you’re not here, how can they finish it for you? Puffy after Big died, Life After Death hit. If it’s not Puff or Dre, don’t touch my sh*t. If it ain’t Puff, Dre, Pharrell, or Timbaland, don’t touch my sh*t.” (TMZ)
Anderson .Paak’s New Tattoo Is A Must See
The R&B musician is making a statement with his latest tattoo and clearly people are agreeing with it. In the midst of criticism about posthumous albums that re-ignited after the release of deceased New York Drill artist Pop Smoke‘s second album Faith, the fellow West Coast crooner has found himself wanting to clarify his instructions for the release of his music after his own passing.
The hip hop community has unfortunately seen quite a few early deaths recently ranging from Juice WRLD, XXXTentacion, Mac Miller and the late Pop Smoke. All of these artists have posthumous music that has been released. While some projects, like Mac Miller’s “Circles”, have been generally well received, others such as Pop Smoke’s ‘Faith”, not so much.
That’s why when Anderson .Paak revealed his latest tattoo, not many were surprised and others began speculating that he watched what happened with other artists work and heeded the warning. View the tattoo and read the comments below.
The tattoo reads: “When I’m gone please don’t release any posthumous albums or songs with my name attached. Those were just demos and never intended to be heard by the public”
“He saw what they did to Pop Smoke lmao.”
“Facts. They did Pop Smoke dirty with that album.”
Silk Sonic’s ‘Skate’ Video Is Full Of Summer Time Fun
Neo-Soul duo Silk Sonic, which is comprised of musicians Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars are back with another song after their smash hit “Leave The Door Open” took over airwaves.

Anderson .Paak + Bruno Mars Aren’t Used To Third Place
Silk Sonic is enjoying their success. However, It’s not enough. So the two are pushing for even more.
