"We working right now as we speak," Nipsey said during an appearance on 92.3 Los Angeles. "We on album time right now. Next thing we going to put out musically is an album. ... We've been cutting ideas and just getting in. We got a couple records that's going to go off for the summer. It's not hard at all we just got to lock in and get the records done."
The West Coast rapper was fatally shot weeks later.
Since then, many fans have questioned the status of the collaborative album, wondering if it would get a posthumous release. Meek addressed this topic during a Friday #AskMeek Q&A session on Twitter, reiterating that there were a few songs in the vault, but the project was incomplete.
"We still getting that Meek & Nip project?" one user asked. "The world need to hear that if possible."
"We never finished it...it’s songs left but they for his family!" Meek responded.
Meek previously confirmed he and Nipsey had recorded a number of tracks. During his interview with Charlamagne tha God in December, Mill claimed the joint project was about 20-30 percent done. He also told GQ they "probably had about three or four songs," but did not indicate whether or not they would ever see the light of day.
Unfortunately for fans, it's still unclear if those cuts will get a proper release—but there's no doubt that Meek's tweet is keeping the hope alive.
The Q&A session went down just hours after the Philadelphia rapper shared "Believe" with Justin Timberlake. It was his first release since he and Roddy Ricch dropped "Letter to Nipsey," a tribute record that they premiered during the 2020 Grammy Awards.
