Nipsey Hussle’s life was cut short before his legacy could be fulfilled. Some people think what he accomplished with his time on Earth makes him a legendary figure. The Game’s manager, Wack 100, is not one of those people.
On Friday night (Nov. 29), Wack was present at The Game’s 40th birthday party at the Sunset Room in Hollywood, Calif. where he was interviewed by TMZ. The topic of Nipsey’s status as a legend was brought up and Wack quickly shot the assertion down.
“He wasn’t. What’s a legend? Define a legend,” Wack said before laying out his case. “If Dr. Dre, right now, died, we would say we lost a legend, right? Based on what? Numbers, right? Body of work, right? How many albums did Nipsey drop? One album, right? This not no personal shit I’m talking, right? This just real shit. The man died with a million followers, no radio hits, no platinum hits, right? No world tours, right? After he died, he went platinum, sold a bunch of records, his followers went up nine, 10 million, right? First of all, we got to define what the fuck a legend is, what the fuck a legend ain’t.”
Wack thinks, with more time, Nip could have become a legend in his eyes. “Was he on his way? I think in time he woulda been, but at the time of his demise….let’s keep it real. The truth could never be defined as disrespect. If it is, that means you lying to your muthafuckin’ self.”
Blueface, who is managed by Wack, recently came under fire and had to defend himself after appearing to diss Nipsey on Twitter.
