After facing backlash from Nipsey Hussle fans following a visit to the rapper’s mural for what is now believed to be a disrespectful “tribute,” rap friends of Nipsey have issued an official warning to 6ix9ine.
On Friday (Aug. 14), hours after a video of 6ix9ine kneeling in front of a Nipsey Hussle’s mural began to circulate on social media, The Game and TDE’s Reason have warned the “Gooba” rapper about his most recent shenanigans.
“Disrespectful🐀…keep playing,” The Game wrote.
The “Kurupt” rapper chimed in, setting the record straight about how the video of 6ix9ine’s visit to the artwork meant to pay homage to the beloved rhymer actually went down.
“Aye bro, it’s a video already out, you were there for 60 seconds for this and got escorted by police back to the car, Reason’s comment started. “Troll all you want, but leave our legend out of it.”
The concerns expressed by the two Calif. based rappers come after 6ix9ine posted a “tribute” video in front of Nipsey Hussle’s mural. In the caption of the post, Tekashi insinuated the “Higher” rhymer was watching over him.
“REST IN PEACE NISPEY! I KNOW YOU LOOKING DOWN ON ME IM OUT HERE IN THE HOOD PAYING MY RESPECT 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 P.S THE STORE WAS CLOSED BUT THEY PAINTED THIS ON THE SAME BLOCK,” 6ix9ine writes in the caption for the post.
It’s possible that if 6ix9ine were not the star of the clip, the video’s motives would probably not be in question. However, given his history with trolling mixed and the Crenshaw-bred lyricist’s view on snitching and street code, the widespread speculation regarding 6ix9ine’s motive has caused much uproar. The 24-year-old Brooklyn-native was met with a lot of pushback over the collective disrespect felt by fans missing Nip’s presence. Many commentators threatened 6ix9ine and suggested these actions could result in his death.
6ix9ine has yet to comment on these recent allegations.
