Nipsey Hussle’s passing has hit a lot of folks hard and effected many. Dom Kennedy and YG were some of Nip’s frequent collaborators but also real homies outside of this rap shit.
Dom and YG took some time off social media following his death but shared some words for the late, great Slauson Boy on Instagram.
Dom, who broke into the industry with Nipsey was also from South Central L.A. where Nip spent most of his time. They collaborated on numerous songs like “Checc Me Out,” “Don’t Forget About Us,” “I Need That,” “Pleeze,” and most recently “Double Up” off Nip’s ‘Victory Lap’.
“Yesterday we lost everything. My brother knew how GREAT he was. It was a honor to have served with you KING. I’m so sad Nip I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I’m sorry that the people didn’t realize how valuable you were 2 us while u were still here. Thank u 4 being a great friend all the time. I’m happy u got 2 grow and become a man. One who lived with no fear or hate towards anyone. The city loves you Nip and we will FOREVER miss u. #CRENSHAW#NipHusslethegreat,” wrote Dom on an IG post.
Like Dom, YG was rising to success in the rap game with Nipsey. They collaborated on numerous joints and YG shared they were working on a collaborative album entitled ‘2 OF AMERIKKKAZ MOST WANTED’.
“Lost for words kuz i got so many of em
