On August 13th 2021, the beautiful life of Stephen Gaines was taken from the world suddenly. From that date on we have been trying to figure out a way to properly represent and send off our friend. In the process of mourning our brother, we went back to the first installment that was ever filmed for The Game Knows where we sat down with Steve. In reviewing the footage after his passing, we discovered a message of how Steve wanted to be remembered by the world and his family. This short film is dedicated to his greatness.
We know that justice will be served. He will never be forgotten. We love and miss you. Rest in peace Stephen Gaines.
