Rap mogul Master P says he was one of the last people who had the opportunity to record a song with the late and great Nipsey Hussle before his untimely passing.
On Friday (June 7), the No Limit Records CEO and founder spoke to People and shared a snippet of “Street Millionaire,” a new song that he recorded with Neighborhood Nip. According to Master P, he and Nipsey recorded the song two days before the rapper’s death in Los Angeles on March 31.
“This was a talented brother who cared about the community and did a lot [for it],” Master P told the publication. “This man was a star. His legacy is going to change so many lives.”
Since Nipsey’s death, Master P has made it clear that he’s appreciative of all the love the late rapper is getting from his fans, even if he wishes that Nip would have received his praises when he was alive.
“Everything he got after he died, he deserved that before,” P told People. “He could really make music. People know now. His music touches millions of people now. I had people say, ‘You know, I never listened to his music. It’s really good’. But you waited ‘til he died? It makes no sense.”
As for the song “Street Millionaire,” it will appear on the I Got the Hook-Up 2 Soundtrack, Vol. 1, which will hit digital stores on July 12, the same day I Got the Hook-Up 2 will open in theaters.
