Shortly after Nipsey Hussle’s memorial service Thursday, LAPD officers were accused of making disparaging comments about the late rapper’s parents. The allegations stemmed from an audio clip of an alleged police radio exchange that was picked up by a child’s walkie-talkie. The Savoy Show was the first to post the recording, in which voices could be heard insulting Nipsey’s family.
The Game shared the clip via Instagram on Friday, calling the statements “disgusting.” He also made sure to indicate that the comments were allegedly made by LAPD officers, but states incidents like this is why many people simply distrust law enforcement.
“Audio of what seems to be LAPD officers intercepted on police radio & caught disrespecting Nip’s parents, his home-going & celebration SMFH,” the Game wrote in the caption. “Then y’all stupid mothafuckas wonder why nobody has faith in the legal system or this corrupt police force/government. This shit is disgusting & the voices in this video if they are in fact police officers should be recognized by other officers & they should be brought to the light !!!! Protect & serve right ??!!?!? Fuck outta here !!!”

Audio of what seems to be LAPD officers intercepted on police radio & caught disrespecting Nips parents, his home-going & celebration SMFH. Then y’all stupid mothafuckas wonder why nobody has faith in the legal system or this corrupt police force/government. This shit is disgusting & the voices in this video if they are in fact police officers should be recognized by other officers & they should be brought to the light !!!! Protect & serve right ??!!?!? Fuck outta here !!! Nips mother was beautiful yesterday & his father stood by her side & showed strength in a time we all needed to see it !!! & although this doesn’t speak for every officer in the world I’m pretty sure it does for a vast majority & therein lies the problem. I wasn’t even going to post this but I had to use my platform to speak to people & make as many people aware as possible. If it’s two civilians on radio conversing it is still disheartening & sick to hear someone talk about his parents etc in this manor…. & this is really how they feel about us. I’m only one man as was Nip & now that he’s perished due to another’s jealousy & envy it is on ALL OF US to step up individually one at a time until that is a UNIFIED rock & defend not only his honor & legacy but that of all of us that grew up & lived in the same poverty stricken neighborhoods, cities around the world. This is sickening & cannot be tolerated !!!!! Nipsey’s passing has shifted the world & his memory is FOREVER !!! We cannot allow this to be heard & turn the other cheek….. & like I stated above, if these are in fact #LAPD officers we want their badges & for them to be brought to the forefront & made example of as this is a time of awakening for all. We don’t always have to respond with violence, especially in a time where our brother’s mission & passing is bringing about so much love felt around the world. But this, is UNACCEPTABLE by all means !!! #LongLiveNip #TheMarathonContinues 🏁🏁🏁
The LAPD has since responded to the Savoy Show and the Game’s posts, insisting it was not their officers who were heard on the radio frequency. How do they know? Because they claim to only use digital frequencies, which can not be picked up by a walkie-talkie.
