Guess Which Rapper Showed Their Love For Nelson Mandela With A Huge Tattoo…

December 9, 2013 ‐ By
The Game Nelson Mandela tattoo


What can I say? Some rappers just really, REALLY like to show that they care about and appreciate people with permanent tattoos. Jim Jones got Chrissy Lampkin’s face tattooed on his arm. And Nicki Minaj’s alleged assistant (but we all know that’s her boyfriend) Safaree sat for hours for a huge tattoo of the Barbie on his arm. Now The Game is showing his appreciation, not for on-again, off-again fianceé Tiffney Cambridge, but Nelson Mandela. No, seriously. And the tattoo is pretty friggin’ huge.

On his Instagram account just hours ago, Game posted a photo of the image of Nelson Mandela staring out of the prison cell bars on Robben Island permanently drawn on the side of his body. Here’s what he had to say about the tat for his fans and followers:

“The finished “Nelson Mandela” lookin out of the prison bars by @NikkoHurtado done on my side. 7 hour sitting…. Few more hours to tie in the tats around it & we solid. #NelsonMandela #RIP #Legend #Leader#Freedom #Peace #Equality #Tattoos #SouthAfrica”

That’s right, he’s not done just yet! We’ll be sure to share the finished product with you when the rapper posts it on his Instagram. While there are many ways to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela, if Game wants to do so in a more permanent manner, hey, I guess it’s his body, right? Plus, the tattoo is pretty nice! Share your thoughts on the rapper’s new body art and let us know what you think.

    thats a beautiful tat.

    He posted this tattoo on his personal IG account if the media takes the image and posted for everyone to see that’s not his fault. When you post pics of yourself are you seeking attention or approval or is it just your IG and you can do what you want. The tattoo is nice it’s his body he can do what he wants. Tiff loves him because he has a big heart and he is a good man. That’s why they are holding on to each other.

  • kickash

    He gets profound images like this tattooed on him but then has a stupid butterfly tattooed on his face. go figure.

  • Rosemary Davis

    This not love this is more light and attention that the Game is bringing to himself he should have shown that love for Mandela while he was alive plain and simple

  • chanela

    i swear people get a tattoo for every time they take a sh*&. smh

  • wveronica7

    Great job by the tattoo artist. That tattoo is beautiful

  • Chassie

    The Game is one of the few rappers who I feel like has his heart in the right place, even when his head is in his butt. I remember him speaking out on the Trayvon Martin situation, giving away food on the holidays, and arranging transportation for people who couldn’t make it to get to the polls and vote. I think he’s a decent guy despite his career choices and lifestyle

    • BabyBlue

      I agree

    • folamix

      I agree. I actually think The Game is decent person, and keeps it real. He is who he is. That’s why Tiffany gets on my nerves so much.

    • Rosemary Davis

      Obviously he has a good heart but must he make public all of his good deeds just do them quietly and people will look at it as something from the heart and not something to bring attention to himself further he should not have waited until the death of Mr. Mandela to do this if he caredj so much about what he did for the world in general but in particular the people in south africa just saying

      • shelly

        I actually like that he does these things publicly because then it can serve as an example for all these other rappers out here. And for example, people like to say that certain celebrities don’t do anything for anyone, but they might actually be very charitable, but they might do it quietly. The Game is an okay example of a rapper because he is so charitable, but if he didn’t do these things publicly, he couldn’t be a good example.

        • Rosemary Davis

          I don’t have a problem with him being an example for others but it certainly doesn’t mean that everything that you do for a person have to be known by others i am sure some how people would have found out about this tatto without a picture of it shown on various websites and yes on the surface he appears to be an okay guy but you nevr know what one does under the cover of darkness and behind close doors after all he was once known as a blood gang banger now wheather he is still one today I don’t know hopefully his good deeds are over shadowing that

  • Dee

    He is still a dumb azz!!!!!!

  • BabyBlue

    How can you possibly make love to this guy when he has dead people looking at you. His daughters eyes are on his chest, Barack Obama, Nat Dogg, I believe he has Aaliyah and now Nelson? Stop! Just stop.

    • theletterbee

      Drake has Aaliyah.

      • BabyBlue

        Either way it’s still creepy.

    • Chey

      Don’t forget Trayvon! Lol

      • BabyBlue

        Oh yea. Him too. He’s wearing the obituaries. That just creeps me out

        • K Mo

          he has Micheal Jackson too!

          • BabyBlue

            OMG O_o

    • FeelsGood

      How can he honor, uplift, and show respect towards everybody except the woman he’s supposed to love? I don’t get it. I know she’s annoying but dang!

      • folamix

        She is annoying

        • BabyBlue

          Yes, Tiffany is annoying. The way she says Jayceon makes my skin crawl. She needs to go and save herself.

      • BabyBlue

        That confuses me too.

      • ni

        commemorating some who has fallen and forcing yourself to be in a relationship with someone before you are ready are two different things

    • chanela

      RIGHT!!!! that’s the creepiest thing ever!
