Along with a lasting impression on his community, the late Nipsey Hussle also left behind an abundance of unreleased music that he never got the chance to finish. This includes a pending collaboration with global pop star Rihanna.
On Wednesday, Rihanna took to Instagram where she reposted a picture the superproducer Hitmaka uploaded to his personal page. In the screenshot, Hitmaka and Nipsey Hussle were engaged in a text conversation regarding a record Hitmaka wanted Hussle to work on. During the exchange, Hitmaka mentioned that the track, roughly titled “On My Mind,” had the potential to be a “Hot 100 #1” as it would also feature Rihanna.
“We gotta get Rihanna then,” Nip responded. “ima work on this one. This a GO!”
Although Rihanna did not accompany the re-post with a long caption, it is clear that the singer is still overcome by grief. She immediately followed Hitmaka’s post by sharing a video of Nipsey Hussle and his longtime girlfriend Lauren London under which she wrote: “I’m so sorry [Lauren London].”
