In his lyrical flows, East touches upon how Nipsey impacted his life and then went on to share his best memories with the late rapper. East also opened up about the grief he experienced after the tragic event. East can be heard rapping, “You just told ‘Congrats East I heard you actin’ n*gga / They killin’ kings and no longer wanna chat with n*ggas / If I could ask God for something, just give me back my n*ggas / Neighborhood Nip.”
