The Game Offers Words of Encouragement to Teyana Taylor on Instagram
Late last week, Teyana Taylor announced her retirement and had the music world shook. One of those to express concern was The Game, who hit Instagram to deliver a message to the singer.
“TT, @TeyanaTaylor…….. this message is from the young game who met a very young, talented black girl with the biggest voice I’d ever heard in my life on a cold night in New York City I don’t remember how many years ago,” Game wrote. “The 1st time I heard you sing, I knew what you were & also knew it was only a matter of time before you were a SUPERSTAR. You signed to @pharrell & I remember how bad you wanted the world to hear your voice. You were writing day in & day out. In studio every single day trying to perfect your craft. But sometimes amazing things take time so you waited & continued to be you.”
Game would go on to detail their friendship and the determination she had to her craft despite hurdles coming her way.
“You signed to @kanyewest & I remember how excited you were to start a new chapter. Time passed again…. but you were patient and you never stopped being amazing & kept your head up as you progressed in your talent. You met @imanshumpert, started a family & became the woman I always knew you’d be…. a mother, a wife & still one of the greatest talents I have ever known,” Game added.
He would go on to detail that her last release, The Album, is a classic and for her to “NEVER TIP THE CROWN.” You can see his words of encouragement here.
