The Game was inspired by Nick Carter's tribute

The Game was so touched by Nick Carter's Instagram post that it inspired him to share his own fond recollection of Aaron Carter. "It was mid year 2005 and I boarded a flight to New York with my now 19 year old son @harlemtaylorr & his mom @___alseska to do 106 & park and we were 1st class so we thought... turns out they over booked & we were one seat short," he wrote. The Game revealed that Aaron was sitting across the aisle and recognized the then-relatively new rapper. "Hey, you guys can have little man.. you can have my seat Game," Aaron had said. He then left his seat and proceeded to sit in coach.

The Game shared how he felt bad that Aaron had given up his first-class seat and went to sit with him. "We ended up talking the entire damn near 6 hour flight & I can remember thinking how kool it was to be talking to a guy I seen on MTV a million times who my lil sister loved to death cause again I had just become a star so this was super dope." The Game ended his heartfelt post with condolences to Aaron's family and told them they can reach out to him for "whenever, FOREVER."

Aaron is survived by his 11-month-old son Prince, whom he shared with his ex-fiancee Melanie Martin, per In Touch Weekly.
