In the latest addition to his Instagram story, Drake made sure to follow up on his previous tributes with a new one, pouring out some beer on the pavement in honor of the late Nipsey Hussle. Drizzy can be heard in the background, speaking up to the heavens and remembering his friend. “For Nipsey,” said one of the Canadian’s friends. “Yeah, exactly,” added Drake. “Exactly. Rest easy. Yeah, the whole thing. Trust me, like that.”
Drake and Nipsey Hussle had previously collaborated in 2009 and they planned to link up again this summer for a new song. This week, the artist paid his respects to the late Hussle during his live show. Drake has been one of the more vocal celebrities honoring Hussle. His passing has shaken up the entire music industry and yesterday, it was reported that the primary suspect in his murder had been arrested.
