Sunday evening’s news of beloved rapper, philanthropist and community activist Nipsey Hussle passing away has understandably brought the hip-hop world to a standstill.
Among the many tributes was one from close-collaborator Kendrick Lamar. Lamar famously joined Nipsey on 2018’s “Dedication,” which had become one of Nipsey’s signature tracks.
Kendrick was informed of Nipsey’s passing shortly before taking the stage at Lollapalooza Argentina and began his set with an emotional and thoughtful tribute.
