Today is Trayvon Martin‘s birthday. He would have turned 19 years old. Among many paying respect to the late teenager, rapper The Game took to his social media to share his thoughts on the situation and pay his respects to Martin.
“To day Trayvon Martin would’ve been 19 years old. Happy Birthday & may your soul be carried by angels your entire journey through heaven – The Game,” Game said in a caption for an Instagram post featuring a photograph of Martin.”
The Game also got a tattoo of the teen soon after he was murdered on February 12, 2012.
“I actually got a text message from [Trayvon Martin’s] mom, which was cool,” Game said at the time. “She appreciated the gesture. And I get tattoos all the time and that was just that whole story. I got a kid and I just thought that was so unfortunate, so I did it.”
