YG Pays Tribute To Nipsey Hussle, Delays Album Planned For Next Week

Today, YG joined the friends and artists paying tribute to Nipsey Hussle, who was fatally shot outside his Marathon Clothing Company store in Hyde Park a few days ago. “I took so long to post you kuz I Kant believe this shit, I don’t wanna believe this shit,” YG wrote on Instagram. “I’m not never accepting it. IDGAF what nobody say. It wasn’t yo time to go I’m lost homie.”

YG and Nipsey Hussle were fellow LA natives, friends, and frequent collaborators. They worked together throughout their career on songs like “FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)” in 2016 and “Last Time That I Checc’d” from Nipsey Hussle’s 2018 debut studio album, Victory Lap.

YG later tweeted that he was planning to release a surprise album on 4/12, but is now pushing it to May: “Now that we gotta deal with Big bro goin to heaven I will not drop the album this month.”
