Diddy Pays Tribute to Nipsey Hussle: ‘There’s Nobody Responsible For Us Except For Us’


Thoughts and prayers continue to rain down on Nipsey Hussle one week after his death. On Sunday (April 7), Diddy expressed his grief on the passing of Hussle with a heartfelt tribute post on Instagram. 

"There’s NOBODY responsible for US except for US," reads the caption. "It has to STOP now. NO MORE hurting and bringing down your fellow brothers and sisters. Tap into LOVE. Remind yourself we are KINGS and QUEENS and reprogram your mind every day. WE’VE BEEN AT WAR WITH OURSELVES. It stops now. I’ll do my best to uplift, love and heal my people. But the responsibility lies with YOU! What are you going to do!?!?!? You must be responsible for yourself!!!!!"

Last year, Diddy left his mark on Nipsey Hussle's debut album, Victory Lap, as he was featured on "Young N----s." "I went to go play the album for Puff, and I wanted him to get on “Rap N----s” because my vision for that was like, [Nas’ 1999 hit] “Hate Me Now," Hussle told Billboard last year. "Remember him and Nas? He was just behind Nas, talking his shit. But when he heard, “Young N----s,” he was like, “This is the one I wanna get on.” I was like, “Oh, aight. I’m talking some shit on here.”

Meanwhile, Hussle's Victory Lap has surged back onto the Billboard 200 at No. 2 this week, topping his previous first-week appearance, where he debuted at No. 4.
