YG shared on Twitter that he was planning to release a surprise album next week but will push back the LP until May to pay tribute to his late friend Nipsey Hussle. “Now that we gotta deal with Big bro goin to heaven I will not drop the album this month.”

Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot outside his Marathon Clothing Company store in Hyde Park last Sunday (March 31). YG also went on Instagram and wrote about his grief over the death of his friend.

“I took so long to post you kuz I Kant believe this shit, I don’t wanna believe this shit,” YG shared. “I’m not never accepting it. IDGAF what nobody say. It wasn’t yo time to go I’m lost homie.”

The two West Coast rappers have known each other for years and have been frequent collaborators with songs such as “FDT (F*ck Donald Trump)” in 2016 and “Last Time That I Checc’d” from Nipsey Hussle’s 2018 debut studio album, Victory Lap.
