Diddy Honors Late Nipsey Hussle On Social Media

April 8, 2019

It's been over a week since rapper Nipsey Hussle was gunned down in front of Los Angeles clothing store. Many have taken to social media to honor their friend, including former collaborator, Diddy.

On Sunday, the music mogul took to his Instagram and posted a video about his friend, Nipsey. In it, Diddy wrote "There’s NOBODY responsible for US except for US,"

He adds "It has to STOP now. NO MORE hurting and bringing down your fellow brothers and sisters. Tap into LOVE. Remind yourself we are KINGS and QUEENS and reprogram your mind every day. WE’VE BEEN AT WAR WITH OURSELVES. It stops now. I’ll do my best to uplift, love and heal my people. But the responsibility lies with YOU! What are you going to do!?!?!? You must be responsible for yourself!!!!!"

In 2018, Diddy appeared on Hussle's song "Young N----s" on his debut album, Victory Lap. In an interview with Billboard, Hussle said "I went to go play the album for Puff, and I wanted him to get on 'Rap N----s' because my vision for that was like, [Nas’ 1999 hit> 'Hate Me Now'," In the nearly 7 and a half minute video, Diddy's social commentary ended with a prayer for the community to have peace.

He goes on to say "Remember him and Nas? He was just behind Nas, talking his shit. But when he heard, 'Young N----s,' he was like, 'This is the one I wanna get on.' I was like, 'Oh, aight. I’m talking some sh** on here."

On Thursday, the man accused of killing Hussle, Eric Holder plead not guilty on murder charges. If convicted, Holder faces life in prison.
