All of you saying bad things about him need to shut up! he is gone now, let him rest in peace, whatever he did was HIS business not yours, so shut up and have some RESPECT. Its so funny how all thee haters start talking after he is gone and cant confront them. RIP RENE <3

How can i start. Well im not from the bay nor from richmond but RESPECT,Im from LA county westside inglewood city. I was browsing thru youtube and i manage to bumped im to LIL G THE GREATs links and i hit the motto remix and listen to his lyrics carefully and he went hard i most admit this dude amazed me i can say he had talent plus he made a track with YABOY he was going places it was just matter of time.I love music,I know music he was doing what he loved doing hiphop he was doing something possitive he was working on succes and it doesnt matter how he was living or what he portray in his music was fake it just dont matter. What count was he was good at he was doing and as a men he was working hard like every father would dohe was working hard on living lavage not only for him but for his child and his childs mom fallow along for his family and friends so fuck every body talking shit about him and look at the good he was doing and if he was alive and he was a national artist i bet he wouldove been everybody that love hip hop favorite rapper i guarenteed that so much love and respect to LIL G THE GREAT friends and family. My point in this is RESPECT

I know Rene, he was a wanna be! He would do lines of coke and smoke weed and think he was on top of the world! He was the low life! He should have took care of his child instead of running the streets! Dont be mad llat peoples opinions cause everyone has skeletons in there closets! He wasnt no saint, he got all you women on his nuts!! Yall women are dumb too! Wake up and s[mell the truth dumbasses!
How was he a wanna be? A human being who has become a doctor, a priest or a plumber, are they all wanna be types also? I ask you this because Lil G became a rapper because he wanted to take this route, he enjoyed it, yes many other people were rappers before he. Although many people were doctors, priests and plumbers before one another has become one, so it's the same thing Lil G was an amazing rapper and even better lyricist the fact he took the option to become a musician was his route in life yes it's a different occupation from a doctor but a doctor and a priest are 2 very different occupations and they are given great respect but in reality you get respect from giving respect, and in this sad situation Lil G should be given enormous amounts of respect because he was a kind, caring person, a son a father, a friend a grandson. So respect cause karma is a bitch and when karma hits it hits hard.

I agree with SJS. May I suggest taking spelling and grammar lessons,prior to posting? I don't want your parents to read this and realize that their son has the education of an average 8 year old. I would be willing to tutor you. We could meet face to face. Amicably, of course. You DO know what that means? Probably not. Communicating with you will be difficult.(Sigh)

I was going through YouTube and iTunes and ran across your page. You did your thing boy, show out and rest! Rapping is hard to begin with and nobody deserves death nor to be judged by anyone. I pray for your family and little boy!! May God have you in his glory.

To all of you dissing this man is wrong. Show your respect by keeping your negative comments to yourself. I am a known rap artist in Cali and want to stop by and show some respect to another falling artist. I can see the comments are all within 2012 but even today 2014... people are praying for your family. God Bless.
