He gave everything he had…rest in power King. As we all mourn, let us all remember his children and family. While the world has lost an incredible loving leader, his family lost their father, son, brother, their hope…May they receive the love and comfort they need forever. pic.twitter.com/1XmUnZacgM

RIP Nipsey. I just spent Thursday with him filming a video for a beautiful new song we created with Khaled. We filmed in Inglewood, close to where he grew up. He was so gifted, so proud of his home, so invested in his community. Utterly stunned that he's gone so soon.
