YG and Nipsey Hussle

YG Delays Surprise Album After Nipsey Hussle’s Death

YG is putting his album on hold out of respect for Nipsey Hussle.

Following his friend’s tragic death on Sunday, the Compton rapper revealed that he had planned to release a surprise album ahead of his Coachella set on Friday, April 12. But in light of Nipsey’s passing, he has decided to delay the project to next month.

“I was dropping a Surprise album April 12th,” tweeted YG. “But man Now that we gotta deal with Big bro goin to heaven I will not drop the album this month.”

The album, his first since last year’s Stay Dangerous, will now be released in May. “Pushing it to May, Sorry! LONG LIVE @NipseyHussle my brother from the other color!” added YG.

Earlier in the day, YG penned a heartfelt dedication to the slain rapper. Despite their connections to rival gangs, the two shared a close bond. “Lost for words kuz i got so many of em,” wrote YG alongside a throwback photo of him and Nipsey. “We went thru so much shit together tryna make it out of LA with this rap shit, But we always got thru it then talked about it & after we talked. We laughed! You was a real big bro to me no kap. YOU 1 OF A KIND!”

He is still in disbelief over Nipsey’s sudden death. “I took so long to post you kuz I Kant believe this shit, I don’t wanna believe this shit. I’m not never accepting it. IDGAF what nobody say. It wasn’t yo time to go. I’m lost homie.”

The two had projects in the works, including a joint album and television shows. “We had so much shit in the works. TV shows that was being written, A album ‘2 OF AMERIKKKAZ MOST WANTED’ that we tried to work on twice but it never got done, If ni**az know NIP then Ni**az know bro got his own recording process. He rather start doin musik at 10am 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂But we was 4sho gone do it 1 day, damn bro I’m sick. The shit we had is forever bro!”

He ended his touching tribute with blue and red heart emojis to represent the Crips and Bloods. “THE WORLD DIDNT KNOW WHAT THEY HAD TILL YOU WAS GONE I BEEN KNEW! @nipseyhussle 💙❤️💙❤️💙”
