On Monday, Blueface posted a picture of himself with Juice WRLD on Instagram, which he captioned "R.I.P." One fan then resurfaced the drama that surrounded Blueface when Nipsey Hussle passed.
"Know what's funny you say RIP to another man from another state but COULDNT EVEN SAY RIP NIPSEY AND POST A PICK LIKE YOU DID THIS SMFH," the user commented. "MUST OF HAD SOMETHING AGAINST NIP."
Blueface saw the fan's comments and responded with a comment of his own. "Never met Nipsey and neither have you," Blueface wrote. "Take his dicc out yo mouth and move on bro."
Following Hussle's death, a lot of people who were unfamiliar with the street culture of Los Angeles thought Blueface should comment on the passing simply because they were both Crips. Blueface's silence led to a lot of criticism. Eventually, the rapper took to his Instagram story where he said "Rip Nip."
During a conversation with the No Jumper podcast, Blueface's manager, Wack 100, explained why the rapper held his tongue following Nipsey's death.
"He don't know him. Never talked, never had a conversation," Wack said. "And the fact of the matter is their two neighborhoods—for 25 years—have been on and off enemies. So him not saying nothing is really him showing respect."
