It didn’t take a long time for Wack 100 to catch flack from some prominent members of the hip-hop community. Meek Mill and T.I. shared responses to Wack 100’s comments, making it very clear that Nipsey Hussle was and is a legend. “Nipsey a legend and the definition of real black man,” Meek Mill wrote on Twitter.
T.I. shared a bit of a more elaborate response. The human dictionary posted the definition of the world “legend” on his Instagram page and shared a lengthy message defending Nipsey’s name from slander. “This shit say Nipsey all over it… Record sales and #1 hits ain’t the only barometer for legendary status. IMPACT is what’s important. Although his notoriety DID grow exponentially more after his demise… his impact is undeniable. #HadToBeSaid,” Tip wrote on Instagram.
Following all of the backlash in the past 24 hours, Wack 100 did respond on Instagram. Check out T.I., Meek, and Wack 100’s posts below.
