Hands Down The Illest...
In the fall of 2009 I wrote and recorded a remix to Drake's "Best I Ever Had" and sent an unfinished, rough copy to an artist online whose opinion I highly admired. As an artist, I wasn't anywhere near the skill level of the individual aforementioned, so I figured I'd never hear back and I would chalk it up as wishful thinking... However, within five minutes, the artist responded and demanded that I free up a verse for him! He told me that he had recently split up with someone he truly loved and resonated with my song and lyrical content more then he could express. He sent me his recorded verse within the hour and I was awestruck, to say the least. I never posted the song online because he outshined me in every aspect of songwriting and performing, which was expected but nonetheless embarrassing.
I decided against making the material public until I could create something decent and not sound horrid when paired next to his mere four stanzas. Unfortunately, before I was able to polish up my lyrics and presentation, he passed away just a few weeks into the new year of 2010 - at the young age of 27. It's been almost 2 ½ years since his passing and I'm finally ready to share our collaboration.
The artist's name is Brandon Burris, better known by his stage name "Point Game". He was an amazing lyricist, ever-progressing artist, and a down to earth human being with an enormous heart... And that description is an understatement. He was a regular visitor of the website RapMusic.com V3.0 Emcee Battles, where you were sure to know his name even if you weren't familiar with his music. He influenced and inspired an overwhelming amount of artists, and a thread was dedicated to him in honor of his life that was shared with so many of us via forum posts, instant message conversations, mp3 files, and face-to-face relationships. Point Game was an extraordinary individual, and I'm honored to have been given the opportunity to share in his art form. His music, and life, will not be forgotten by the many he was able to touch... RIP.

^ His verse on that was amazing ....Damn ...I didn't know dude from adam, but homie was a big talent ...R.I.P!
I think about u every day bro.the world needed u fam, but god needed u more. I love u my nigga we gon keep your name alive believe that.
His name sounds familiar but not his stage name. I've never heard his music as well. Either way, he clearly had a lot of fam and I don't think anyone had anything bad to say about the guy. I know how it feels to lose people so close to you so my condolences to the guy's family. I know it was a while ago but that's the kinda shit that takes decades to heal.
missing you my dood, sorry about that track taking longer than expected, some shit with my setup as always..ha...just wanted to stop by and say what's up...see you when I see you...
