He said all that shit about what he did over the weekend in the first 2 minutes, and spent over 5 minutes straight on Nipsey. From what I see, he mentioned the charity game over the weekend because it gave him the opportunity to speak on how Nipsey helped his charity game become a success. You reaching on that "inauthentic" shit.
