Rihanna regrets missing out on a possible collab with Nipsey Hussle, commiserates with late rapper's girlfriend
Rihanna shared a screenshot from a conversation between Hussle, and Yung Berg aka 'hitmaka', where the two men are discussing a possible collaboration between Hussle and Rihanna.
A collab with Rihanna is a big deal for any contemporary musician, but the reigning queen of R&B and pop is mournful right now for missing a chance to collaborate with recently murdered rapper, Nipsey Hussle.
In a Twitter post, Rihanna shared a screenshot from a conversation between Hussle, and Yung Berg aka 'hitmaka', where the two are discussing a possible collaboration between Hussle and Rihanna. The screenshot shows Berg, real name Christian Ward, sharing the rough version of a track titled 'On My Mind,' which as per Hussle's response, the late rapper really wanted to work on.
Berg can be seen telling Hussle that if this track was his and Rihanna's, it would have reached the number one position on the Hot 100 charts. An enthusiastic Hussle seems to agree to that and replied "We gotta get Rihanna then," and in follow up texts he adds "ima work on this one This is a Go!"
The original screenshot was shared by Berg himself on April 1, shortly after news of Hussle being shot to death came out on March 31. But Rihanna shared it a week after the rapper's brutal murder, captioning the post with the word 'repost' followed by the crying emoji and a heart.
That Rihanna would have adored the opportunity to collab with the talented rapper is no secret, but what's even more touching is that her tribute on the departed soul didn't stop there.
Taking to Twitter again, 'badgal Riri' followed up the screenshot with a short video clip of Hussle, and his girlfriend Lauren London, where photos of the couple appear as a slideshow. The 31-year-old singer captioned the photo "I’m so sorry @LaurenLondon" followed by a couple of blue hearts and the prayer emoji to share her condolences with her.
Hussle was murdered on the morning of March 31 allegedly by a man named Eric Holder, who he was acquainted with. While it is not known what exactly prompted the attack, it is known that after a heated conversation, Holder returned with a gun and shot the rapper before fleeing the scene in a waiting car. As of now, Holder has been charged with the murder of Hussle, but he pleaded not guilty on April 4.
