The hip-hop community is still mourning the shocking death of Nipsey Hussle, who was gunned down in March 2019 outside of his Marathon clothing store. Emo-rap star Juice WRLD suffered a drug overdose in December of that same year.
Since his death, Nipsey Hussle has had several posthumous features, while Juice WRLD’s critically acclaimed posthumous album, “Legends Never Die,” reached platinum status.
Maroon 5 announced their album on April 29th, titled “Jordi,” in honor of their late manager Jordan Feldstein, who died in 2017 due to blood clot complications.
