LAPD denies involvement in viral Nipsey Hussle audio
The police department doesn’t plan to investigate the situation any further.
After a video of alleged officers from the Los Angeles Police Department saying disparaging things about Nipsey Hussle and his parents went viral, the LAPD has denied any involvement with the audio.
Posted by The Savoy Show on Twitter, the audio shares controversial comments like, “Nipsey Hussle’s mom looks a lot like a male… His dad looks a lot like a female, so go figure,” and “They should’ve drove the motherfucker and put him in the ground before he starts stinking up the place.”
These comments didn’t sit well with fans or The Game.
“Audio of what seems to be LAPD officers intercepted on police radio & caught disrespecting Nip’s parents, his homegoing & celebration SMFH,” the Game wrote in his Instagram caption. “Then y’all stupid mothafuckas wonder why nobody has faith in the legal system or this corrupt police force/government. This shit is disgusting & the voices in this video if they are in fact police officers should be recognized by other officers & they should be brought to the light !!!! Protect & serve right ??!!?!? Fuck outta here !!!”
The LAPD responded to The Game via Instagram insisting it wasn’t any of their officers’ voices in the video.
“We are aware of this disrespectful, disturbing, and offensive recording and responded to it last night on our LAPDHQ Twitter account,” the department wrote in the rapper’s comments. “We can assure you we looked into it, and by all indications, this is not an LAPD radio broadcast based on several factors, one of them being that we use digital frequencies that can not be intercepted using a child’s toy walkie talkie, and this does not appear to be a digital frequency.”
Before his death, Nipsey and Roc Nation scheduled a meeting with the LAPD to discuss combating gang violence in Los Angeles. L.A. Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff postponed the meeting in order to give Hussle’s family time to grieve, as he wants them to take his place during the summit.
Following Hussle’s death, Soboroff said he was “very sad” to hear the news.
TMZ reports that the LAPD does not plan to investigate the radio audio any further.
