Did the Sisters ever comment on The Game's dedication of Dreams to Yetunde?

In rapper The Game's 2005 hit he says

This song is dedicated to Yutandey Price the sister of Venus and Serena Williams who was slain
during a gang shoot-out in Compton, Sunday September 14th 2003, Rest in peace


Was just curious if Venus or Serena have referred to this song or The Game in any interviews or anywhere?? Did they even know the guy? Just seemed kinda random to me.

Re: Did the Sisters ever comment on The Game's dedication of Dreams to Yetunde?

I actually saw Yetunde Price's wikipedia article yesterday...

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Gotta be careful where you go to pick up some stuff.

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

Yes, Venus did. She was absolutely unaware of the song or even who The Game was.
And The Game is from Compton and he was gang affiliated, so its not really that random.

I knew that he's from Compton but I thought it was odd that he dedicated an entire song to someone I assumed he never knew.

Something about him lways seemed a little off to me. Didn't he have mental issues a couple years ago?
