YG Won’t Speak As Much About Nipsey Hussle: “I Want To Let The Homie Rest”

He also talked about creating “FGT (F*ck Donald Trump)” with Nipsey back in 2016 months before the last presidential election.

The case against Eric Holder, the man accused of murdering Nipsey Hussle at close range, presses on as the rapper’s fans await news of a trial. It’s been over a year and a half since Nipsey was shot to death in front of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles, and the slain artist has been memorialized worldwide. His family, friends, fans, and collaborators continue to pay tribute to Nipsey, including good friend YG who didn’t hesitate in verbalizing his grief following the rapper’s death.

These days, you may hear a Nipsey Hussle mention from YG lyrically, but the L.A. rapper isn’t as vocal about his fallen friend. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, YG shared that he’s chosen to commemorate Nipsey’s life privately and creatively. “I want to let the homie rest,” he said. “I’m not gonna fall back and just talk about bro in interviews. Not just in breath, but on my records.”

In the wake of the recent protests and looming 2020 election, YG and Nipsey’s 2016 single “FGT (F*ck Donald Trump)” has once again gained traction. YG recalled a conversation with Nipsey prior to releasing the song. “I asked Nip, ‘You sure you want to put this out?’” YG said. “He was like, ‘We already get backlash. We already can’t do this and this and this. So f— it, let’s make it worth something.”

As far as his next album is concerned, My Life 4 Hunnid may show a different side to YG. The rapper told the L.A. Times that he has shifted from his “turnt up and lit” tracks to instead reflect America’s current climate. “I had to go tap into that. I’m so used to being like ‘I don’t give a f— , f— you, boom bam.’ Now I’m like, ‘Damn, I’ve got to really go get into some emo s—.”

Charlamagne Tha God Calls 6ix9ine’s Visit To Nipsey Hussle Memorial “Evil”

The radio host also spoke about 6ix9ine visiting the block where Lil Durk’s cousin was killed.

We haven’t heard much from Tekashi 6ix9ine lately after he released his album TattleTales. The rapper turned up his trolling antics in the hopes of hyping the project to increase album sales, but according to reports, 6ix9ine didn’t pull the numbers that the rapper had hoped. His trolling was highly criticized as he argued with his fellow artists, including Lil Durk and a number of others after he made an appearance in Chicago and showed up in L.A. to visit Nipsey Hussle‘s mural. Charlamagne commented on 6ix9ine’s controversial moment at Nipsey’s memorial and claimed that it was “evil” to show his face there.

“I just looked at it as that’s just some evil stuff to do,” Charlamagne said. “I remember when Nipsey did the interview on [Big Boy’s Neighborhood], still one of my favorite interviews today, and he was just talking about [6ix9ine] in general, you just put that on goofy time. You don’t even pay that type of stuff no attention.” Charlamagne believes that 6ix9ine visiting the mural was a response to Nipsey’s interview.

“I thought it was wack. I just thought it was—no, it’s a level beyond wack. I thought it was evil. That’s just some evil stuff to do. To go to Chicago and stand on [Lil] Durk’s cousin’s block where Durk’s cousin got killed. That’s just some evil stuff to do. It’s one thing to clown somebody that’s here on their appearance or clown them for they record sales to tell ’em suck your d*ck. Whatever it is. But man, when you start playing with the dead like that, just because? For what? For likes? To get people riled up? You not gon’ make me believe that’s worth it.”

Metro Boomin & 21 Savage Unveil “Savage Mode 2” Cover

Metro Boom and 21 Savage’s “Savage Mode 2” gets a nostalgic album cover ahead of its October 2nd release.

Last night, Metro Boomin and 21 Savage confirmed that their long-awaited collaborative album Savage Mode 2 would be arriving this Friday, October 2nd. Given how acclaimed its predecessor has become — some have even considered it to be among the great trap albums in recent memory — the hype surrounding the sequel has reached a feverish pitch. Especially following an appropriately horror-themed trailer, wherein which Morgan Freeman lends considerable talents.

With the album only days away, Metro Boomin has taken to Twitter and Instagram to unveil the project’s official album cover. “Boominati Slaughter Gang taking over for the 2020 and the 21,” he captions, alongside the vintage and heavily Cash Money inspired artwork. Though many were expecting something a little more ominous in nature, the unapologetically nostalgic vibe appears to be a hit with those who look back fondly on the Hot Boys reign. Others, unfortunately, appear less than convinced with the creative direction.

But don’t be mistaken — there is little chance that Savage Mode 2 resembles anything close to the bling rap of the good ol’ days. Look no further than the fountain, filled to the brim with blood. Check it out for yourself below, and sound off with your thoughts in the comments. Do you think this cover captures an intriguing vibe?

Look for Savage Mode 2 to drop on Friday, October 2nd.

Juicy J Is Working With Rico Nasty, Kash Doll, & Rubi Rose

Juicy J appears to be cooking up some new beats for Kash Doll, Rubi Rose, and Rico Nasty.

Juicy J has been consistently putting in work for decades, and the legendary rapper slash producer shows no sign of slowing his roll. In fact, the Three 6 Mafia rapper has spent the last few months holding it down in the studio, lacing instrumentals for A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, and more. And though he currently finds himself embroiled in a massive lawsuit against his former collaborators the $uicideboy$, who served as producers on his acclaimed Highly Intoxicated tape, Juicy has remained focused and kept the new music incoming.

As the man himself made sure to clearly state, “Real hustlers don’t sleep.” And while that in itself is little to go on, the accompanying slideshow paints a telling picture. It appears that Juicy J has been producing for a trifecta of female artists, including Rico Nasty, Kash Doll, and Rubi Rose. While it’s unclear as to when he plans on unveiling a glimpse at the music itself, don’t be surprised to see his name line the production credits of whatever they’ve got lined up next.

In all three images, Juicy J also took a moment to highlight some of his new Three 6 Mafia merch, tagging the official Three 6 Merch IG page in the process; it should be noted that Rubi Rose actually copped one of the Three 6 t-shirts, matching Juicy’s attire in their picture together. Check out the images for yourself below, and keep an eye out for Juicy J’s upcoming collaborations with Rose, Kash Doll, and Rico Nasty. Are you excited?
