YG threw an extravagant launch party for his new album 4REAL 4REAL last night in Los Angeles, and during his performance of the record he wanted to set something straight about Nipsey Hussle. The late Nip was a close friend and collaborator of YG's, and the Bompton rapper hasn't taken kindly to "fake fans" following his death.
As TMZ reports, YG directly addressed his audience near the end of the show. "There's a lot of fake-ass Nipsey Hussle love that's going on out there," he said. "It's a lot of fake shit, his family ain't fucking with that shit. These n***as need to be slapped. This some real Nipsey Hussle shit going on right here. The last record on this album is dedicated to my n***a, it's my last words to my n***a. But it's not really my last words because I'm gonna keep having words to my n***a Nipsey Hussle."
The final track on 4REAL 4REAL (save for a "Stop Snitchin" remix featuring DaBaby) is "My Last Words," which takes audio from Nipsey's memorial service at the Staples Center. YG has been very vocal about how deeply he was affected by the loss of his friend, recently appearing on REAL 92.3 to discuss in two interviews what he called a "special project" he was working on with the late rapper. He didn't offer too many details, but he did let out a smile when he mentioned it, and insisted it's still coming.
Also commemorating 4REAL 4REAL's release, YG dropped his "In the Dark" video Friday:
