A few days ago, Young Thug made headlines after saying that if he were at Nipsey Hussle's store at the time of Nip's murder, he would have caught a body. Thugger is clearly shaken up over the Los Angeles legend's passing, speaking out on several occasions about his untimely death. The most recent instance shows the Atlanta spitter employing a similar mindset to that of his original tribute, suggesting that if everybody had stuck to the "G Code," Nipsey Hussle would still be with us.
The artist updated his Instagram story with a message to his fans, commenting once again on the passing of the "Last Time That I Checc'ed" rapper. "If we would've stuck with the G code and killed all rats my brada Nipsey would still be alive," wrote Jeffery. The statement is bold but it makes sense considering the circumstances. While it was first reported that Eric Holder, the suspected shooter, was gang-motivated, it is now being reported that Hussle's murder was likely the product of jealousy and envy.
Hussle gave a lot back to his community. In fact, the only reason he was at his shop on Sunday was to pick up clothes for his friend that had just been released from prison. The situation is incredibly sad and many are not finding it easy to deal with his loss. Just yesterday, YG spoke out about his close friend's passing, revealing that they were working on a collaborative album and a few TV shows.
Police Release Bodycam Video Of Willie "Bo" McCoy’s Shooting
The rapper was taking a nap in his car when he was shot by police.
We’ve already had to deal with so much tragedy in the first few months of this year. With the passing of Nipsey Hussle this weekend, we’ve had to stand witness to yet another artist losing their lives to gun violence. Earlier in the year, Willie McCoy, who was also known as Willie Bo, was shot dead by police after he was found sleeping inside of his car in a Taco Bell parking lot. Willie wasn’t bothering anybody – he was simply catching some quick shut-eye before heading back onto the road. Now, body cam footage of the shooting has been released, which shows just how bad this all was.
The city of Vallejo, California has released a video of Willie McCoy’s shooting, slowing down footage and offering context by way of a written introduction. Several police officers can be seen approaching McCoy’s car when they notice a gun sitting in his lap. One officer attempts to open the driver’s side door to “snatch” Willie out of the vehicle and grab his gun before they realize the car is locked. Willie is then allegedly ordered to raise his hands when he wakes up, leans forward and reaches for what officers believe was the gun. That’s when shots are fired.
The video is extremely graphic as it shows clear body cam footage of the shooting. Please view it only at your own discretion.
