YG is adding his voice to the endless list of tributes pouring in for Nipsey Hussle.

On Wednesday (April 3), the Stay Dangerous rapper opened up about the grief he’s experiencing in the wake of Hussle’s unexpected death. The rapper was gunned down in front of his clothing store in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 31). It has since been reported that YG was one of the people who rushed to the hospital after learning of the news. The 29-year-old was also there when Hussle’s death was officially announced.

“Lost for words kuz I got so many of em,” he wrote on Instagram before paying tribute to his friend and frequent collaborator. “We went thru so much s—t together tryna make it out of LA with this rap s—t, But we always got thru it then talked about it & after we talked. We laughed! You was a real big bro to me no kap. YOU 1 OF A KIND!”

According to the California native, the two had TV shows in the works as well.
