As of late, some of your favorite rappers are going above and beyond with small tokens of appreciation for their respective fans. Last week, via a radio contest, rapper Wale laced a Hampton University student with a scholarship. And this week, rapper/reality star The Game held his very own fan appreciation contest. The 32-year-old Cali native held an Instagram contest, picking two lucky winners to accompany him on a family vacation to Cabo, Mexico.
