In his Instagram post, YG said that he and Hussle had TV shows in the works and that they also were trying to create a joint album called 2 of Amerikkkaz Most Wanted, a play on 2pac’s single “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” featuring Snoop Dogg.
YG and Nipsey Hussle collaborated on YG’s tracks “FDT,” “Snitches Ain’t Sh**,” “#Grindmode,” and “You Broke” and on Hussle’s “All Birds (Freestyle)” and “Last Time That I Checc’d.”
Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot six times on Sunday (Mar. 31) outside of his apparel store in South Los Angeles.
