YG wants to make sure Nipsey Hussle's children are taken care of in the absence of their father.
The California rapper is donating sales from his upcoming album to them. "4REAL 4REAL" was supposed to come out in April but YG postponed the release after Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed. He didn't want to drop the album and be out promoting it while the community and the world were processing the death of Nipsey. Ultimately, Nispey's brother Blacc Sam gave YG the blessing saying,
"Bro would want you to put your music out and turn up.”
YG goes a step further in honoring Nispey by putting "In Loving Memory of Nipsey Hussle" on the album art work. He said the reasoning behind that in a recent interview with Big Boy,
“I put that ‘In Loving Memory of Nip’ on the album cover because I’m giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album. By time they get 18, from me, they gon’ have a bag.”
