The Game has shared a tribute song to Prince, “Rest in Purple,” the latest addition to an outpouring of tributes to the late icon (via Hot New Hip Hop). The Game peppers the song with Prince song titles, memories of growing up with his music, and a “When Doves Cry” sample, before a distinctly purple chorus sung by Lorine Chia: “Everything is purple, I see purple in the sky/ I got purple in my cup and I smoke purple to get high/ I say live the way you want, you never know when you gon’ die.” Hear it below the Game’s Instagram tribute message.

@Prince was such a huge inspiration to my life from a child watching #PurpleRain til the time I met him at Universal Music in 2006…. I was a fan then & I am a fan now His death was untimely & tragic… I’m sure the world is saddened as I was when I woke up to the news today…. Long story short, @bongobytheway hit me & told me stop by the studio & record a small tribute to him & his legacy & once I heard the beat, I hit @LorineChia to do the hook….. Hope you appreciate it….
