The Game is standing up for a young Canadian man whose death could have been prevented. About a month ago 20 year-old Mohamed Abdi was overserved at a show at The Ranch Roadhouse and then kicked out of the venue. He was found the next morning hiding under a truck frozen to death. He was disoriented and was attempting to take shelter from the freezing temperatures. The Game said the incident was, “negligent & heartless behavior by security & staff who did not follow “Pro-Serve” (serving alcohol) policies.”
The rapper has canceled his performance in Edmonton saying, “I’ve always been an artist that has deeply been appreciative to all of my fans worldwide & will always be indebted to you all for helping me secure my future as well as my legacy. With that being said, I stand in full support of my Edmonton fans & their petition & here as stated above, forfeit the money that was given & hereby withdraw myself from my performance at that venue. I made my decision without talking to my team which I will do this morning in hopes to secure another venue for the Edmonton show. If I cannot, then we will all have to sacrifice that night in Mohamed “Mo” Munye Abdi’s name as well as Tyler Emes who died a year before due to the same heartless negligent venue & its staff.”
This is The Game’s first tour in Canada in over 13 years since the country wouldn’t allow him a visa because of his criminal history.
