Moments ago, The Game released audio of a police officer on duty during the Nipsey Hussle vigil speaking foul of his parents. While the audio clipping doesn't take away from the emotional gravity everyone felt when watching the speeches. It does, however, reinforce a need for institutions like the Nation of Islam to take up space in situations where the well-being of Black men and women is of utmost importance.

The Game provided both the audio and his own assessment of the officer's disparaging remarks, which I'll annotate for you right now. The audio, which loops around unless you pause it manually, shows the unnamed officers making fun of Nipsey's parents, on the basis of their appearance. The cop feminizes his father and refers to his mother in a similar manner. His colleague nods along approvingly.
"Audio of what seems to be LAPD officers intercepted on police radio & caught disrespecting Nips parents, his home-going & celebration SMFH," writes The Game. "Then y’all stupid mothafuckas wonder why nobody has faith in the legal system or this corrupt police force/government. This shit is disgusting & the voices in this video if they are in fact police officers should be recognized by other officers & they should be brought to the light !!!! Protect & serve right ??!!?!? Fuck outta here !!!"
As this story takes on a life of its own, commenters will revisit the question: where was The Game while the Nipsey Hussle vigil was going down? And on that note, how did get his hands on this audio clipping? Be sure to stick around for the inevitable updates to this developing story.
VIDEO: Malaa Escorted by “Police” To His Ultra Set
Malaa is taking his outlaw image to the extreme with a series of arrest stunts…
Just last week, we saw him being escorted off stage by “police” in San Diego at the end of his set. Last night, he appeared in cuffs and an orange jumpsuit as he was led to the stage at Ultra Music Festival to close out the Worldwide Stage.
For a split-second, he almost had us fooled. But, with the ski mask, Illegal Mixtapes and all, it’s blatantly obvious that Malaa is building on the brand and having fun playing with the audience.
If there’s anything Malaa should be arrested for, it’s his murderous sets.
Oh yeah, and #FreeMalaa.
