“It’s so much music this ni**a done did. Like you wouldn’t even imagine,” the rapper said. “There’s sh*t I haven’t even heard when I thought I heard everything.”
Nipsey’s estate has kept much of his unreleased music concealed with the exception of a few tracks that were released after his death, including “Perfect Ten,” which appeared on Mustard’s album of the same name in June 2019.
J Stone added that the late rapper’s close circle is planning on taking their time with the album to properly honor the beloved Cali lyricist. He also took a moment to share his views on the seemingly rushed posthumous Pop Smoke album released just five months after his shooting death in February.
“Rest in peace to [Pop Smoke]. I feel like if they would’ve held on to his music more and put it out the right way, it would’ve been received differently. But, the music was still good, and we needed it at that time,”, J Stone explained.
Nipsey Hussle was tragically gunned down on March 31st, 2019, in his Marathon Clothing store’s parking lot after exchanging words with shooter Eric Holder. Nipsey sustained at least ten gunshot wounds at the hands of Holder, who fled the scene. He was arrested in April and is currently awaiting trial.
Recently, Nipsey earned a posthumous Grammy nomination for his contribution to Big Sean’s “Deep Reverence.” He won two posthumous Grammy awards, one for “Racks In the Middle” with Roddy Ricch and the other for “Higher,” which featured John Legend and appeared on Dj Khaled’s album “Father of Asahd.” Nipsey Hussle also has two posthumous appearances on J Stone’s latest album, The Definition of Pain.
