Tributes have been pouring in from all over the world for Nipsey Hussle who lost his life to gun violence in L.A on Sunday evening. The police is still to arrest anyone in the case but the LAPD homicide detectives reportedly have a suspect in their sights and it’s someone the rapper knew. They believe the incident could be a result of a “deal gone wrong.”
Drake is the latest star to pay respect to the late great, stopping his show at London’s O2 Arena to reflect on his life. “Somebody that provided for his people. Somebody that always treated you with respect when he saw you. Somebody that demanded respect when he walked in a room,” Drake said to the crowd about Nipsey. “So, I really just.. wanna do this shot for Nip tonight and I just want everybody to look around and be grateful and happy that we’re all here together alive and well because life can end at any moment.”
