Nipsey Hussle tragically lost his life back in March of 2019 after he was fatally shot outside his store Marathon Clothing in South Los Angeles. His alleged killer, Eric R. Holder was arrested and charged with murder in April of that year. It seems nearly three years after his death, Master P is talking about the fake love the late rapper still receives.
When Nipsey Hussle died, there was a worldwide outcry. The third anniversary of Nipsey Hussle’s murder in front of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles just passed, and numerous of the late rapper’s loved ones have paid tribute to him on social media.
Master P reviewed Nipsey’s legacy and the response to his passing in a recent interview with HipHopDX, although he acknowledged to saving his criticism for those who only showed love after Hussle died. Nipsey Hussle’s name was included in “Top 10” rappers lists after his death, and musicians from different genres continued to pay public honor to him.
Look back before that happened. He getting all this negative media and all this stuff. People would tell him, ‘Well, I don’t think that you got it.’ What happened? I mean, it’s the same album. The same album that people love now. That’s the part that I don’t understand. That’s why we got to celebrate us while we here. Stop it with the fake love. It ain’t for me, but I know a lot of people that he did songs with that we couldn’t get approved or nobody would mess [with]. Now, if you say you got a Nipsey song, everybody want to be on it. It’s too late. I forgive them, because I realize that you have to be able to forgive and move on. But those people know, and I think that’s the most important thing. They know if they really would’ve been there for him, he wouldn’t have been in a position [to be killed].
Victory Lap swiftly rose to the top of the charts, and Nipsey’s music was hailed as a favorite, but Master P recalled that this wasn’t the case when the rapper was alive. He recently received a Grammy nomination for the debut studio album, Victory Lap, for Best Rap Album. Check out the post below.
