Horrible news about Nipsey Hussle. Dude was a hustler and did a lot for his community. Watched him turn into a great artist thru the years as well. Honor to say he rapped on a few of my beats as a man. Rest peacefully.

I never had the chance to meet or work with Nip, but I salute any brother working to turn his life around and make a positive impact on his community. 33 is far too young to die. Rest well, soldier.
