Compton rapper The Game is doing his part to help the family of murdered 6-year-old, Tiana Ricks. The girl was shot and killed in Moreno Valley last weekend while with her father.
After hearing about the news, the rapper donated $10,000 to help cover her funeral costs. He also posted this heartfelt message on Instagram about what happened:
The picture above is of 6 year old ‘Tiana Ricks’ who was gunned down in Moreno Valley this past weekend holding onto her fathers leg as men approached & opened fire wounding both Tiana & her father.
Tiana did not know she was shot & kept asking was her father okay until 2 1/2 hours later when lil Tiana was passed away just after midnite on Sunday… I read about this story here in Australia & immediately tracked down her mother @lost_the_love_of_my_life & noticed her & the family trying to raise $10,000 for funeral costs…. So I got her on a 3 way with my accountant & now I’m in the process of transferring $10,000 from my account to hers !!!!!
Follow her now @lost_the_love_of_my_life & show her support thru this tough time…… Prayers are definitely needed. My sincerest condolences to you & your family Marquia. Glad that I could be of some help….. I don’t know what else to say, but @therobinhoodproject got you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #TheRobinHoodProject.
