Young Thug shares snippet of Nipsey Hussle tribute track Young Thug performs onstage at night three of the STAPLES Center Concert, sponsored by Sprite, during the 2017 BET Experience at Staples Center on June 24, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.  

Mourning looks different for everyone and musicians either distance themselves from their craft or are inspired in the wake of tragedy. Young Thug recently shared a snippet of an unreleased song honoring Nipsey Hussle, who was killed in Los Angeles over a month ago.

The unnamed track, which Thug shared with the caption "I luv u twin", sees the rapper talk about Nipsey's death and the effect it had on his family. "I can't see how niggas let him get shot/ That lil baby ran up on him ain't nobody but him die," Thugger rapped. "Trying to give niggas the benefit, but really I cannot/ And I can only imagine the tears on him mother's and his wife's eyes."

It's still unknown whether the song will be part of a larger project, and the caption didn't reveal a title or release date. It's possible it may end up as part of the rapper's next studio album, which will be executive produced by J. Cole.
