FANS of Nipsey Hussle claim the musician “would not have condoned” the killing of Indian Red Boy who was shot dead for allegedly disrespecting a mural of the late artist.
A clip from an old interview featuring Hussle resurfaced on social media – days after Zerail Dijon Rivera, 21, was shot in the head three times in Hawthorne, LA.
It appears to suggest that Hussle "would've been opposed" to the killing of Indian Red Boy.
In the clip, the late musician said people “ain’t supposed to do nothing you can’t fix” and “you’re supposed to learn I was wrong.”
One fan tweeted: "Nip did it best" as they accompanied the post with love heart emojis.
Grammy Award nominee Hussle, a member of the gang Rollin’ 60s, was shot three times in the head and chest in 2019.
Indian Red Boy was reportedly gunned down for allegedly mocking gang signs and a Nipsey Hussle mural.
On the day before the shooting, Rivera was reportedly seen in a video throwing up gang signs, MTO News reported.
The outlet claimed that the signs were disrespectful of other gangs in LA and the artist reportedly went on Instagram Live the next day to explain why he made the signs, which is when the shooting took place.
Meanwhile, The Source claims that the rapper was killed in retaliation for disrespecting a mural of the late artist Nipsey Hussle.
