Nipsey Hussle received a ton of love on what would have been his 37th birthday, an honorable gesture…but JA wish the rapper could have seen the honor for himself.
TMZ Hip Hop met YG at Unveiling of Nip’s Hollywood starwhich also included announcing August 15 as Nipsey Hussle Day in Los Angeles.
The Compton rap superstar acknowledged that the amount of love Nip has received is more than warranted, given he was a leader for so many he touched, but said he would not anything for Nip to come back to earth.
YG and Nip were as big as thieves on many levels. Together, they set positive examples within LA’s gang culture while collaborating on several hip hop staples, including “Last Time That I Checc’d” from Nip’s “Victory Lap” album.
YG has continued The Marathon in its own right since Nips’ death…having expanded its portfolio into its own fashion house and signed a joint venture deal with Epic Records and its own 4Hunnid Records to allow its artists Sulan Day and D3 to shine solo.
These days, YG is having fun with music – and videos these days.
Just watch her new ‘Toxic’ video with the social media star and former Washington PJ flame Brittany Renner. The comedy clip is just the latest musical novelty that YG tells us is on the way.
Nip would definitely be proud of his friend.
Our sincere thanks to
