It’s been one week since we learned of Nipsey Hussle’s untimely death. The rapper has been hailed as one of the most influential rappers in his community, continually giving back and ensuring that his neighborhood is as advanced as it can be. He grew up around Crenshaw and Slauson and, as we now know, that corner also ended up being the area where he took his final breath. The majority of the hip-hop community have sent their condolences to Nipsey’s family and friends on social media and although some people have taken a little longer to formulate their thoughts, like YG, others have chosen not to speak out at all. Blueface finds himself in the latter category and considering his West Coast upbringing and his ties with the Crips, some people are not happy about his decision not to tribute Nipsey.
Blueface is one of the quickest rising young rappers on the entire planet. His song “Thotiana” is a certified bop, guaranteed to elicit a reaction every time it gets played at the club. As reported by RapCurrent, one member of the Crips isn’t pleased with Blueface after the artist failed to post a single tribute to Nipsey Hussle on his social pages.

“Blueface the only motherfucker on the west who don’t got a post about Nipsey on his page,” said the man. “What type of n***a is you? You don’t like neighborhoods or something bro?” He goes on to state his confusion as to how somebody like Blueface, who identifies as a West Coast Crip, failed to write anything about Hussle’s passing.
“You from the west and you don’t even got Neighborhood Nip on your shit, and you represent this Crip shit though? That shit weirder than a motherfucker,” he said.
Do you think Blueface is in the wrong for choosing not to say anything about Nipsey Hussle’s death?
