Nipsey Hussle‘s memorial service was on Thursday, April 11 in Los Angeles and now there is reported audio of LAPD making disgusting comments about the rapper’s mother and father. The LAPD is trying to do damage control.
The rapper The Game posted the audio on his IG page, writing, “Audio of what seems to be LAPD officers intercepted on police radio & caught disrespecting Nips parents, his home-going & celebration SMFH.”
One alleged officer says the slain rapper’s mother “looks like a man and his father looks like a female, go figure.”
Another possible officer is heard saying, “What they should’ve done after the funeral is drove the motherf***er and put him in the ground before he starts stinking up the place.”

Audio of what seems to be LAPD officers intercepted on police radio & caught disrespecting Nips parents, his home-going & celebration SMFH. 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 !!! Nips mother was beautiful yesterday & his father stood by her side & showed strength in a time we all needed to see it !!! & although this doesn’t speak for every officer in the world I’m pretty sure it does for a vast majority & therein lies the problem. I wasn’t even going to post this but I had to use my platform to speak to people & make as many people aware as possible. If it’s two civilians on radio conversing it is still disheartening & sick to hear someone talk about his parents etc in this manor…. & this is really how they feel about us. I’m only one man as was Nip & now that he’s perished due to another’s jealousy & envy it is on ALL OF US to step up individually one at a time until that is a UNIFIED rock & defend not only his honor & legacy but that of all of us that grew up & lived in the same poverty stricken neighborhoods, cities around the world. This is sickening & cannot be tolerated !!!!! Nipsey’s passing has shifted the world & his memory is FOREVER !!! We cannot allow this to be heard & turn the other cheek….. & like I stated above, if these are in fact #LAPD officers we want their badges & for them to be brought to the forefront & made example of as this is a time of awakening for all. We don’t always have to respond with violence, especially in a time where our brother’s mission & passing is bringing about so much love felt around the world. But this, is UNACCEPTABLE by all means !!! #LongLiveNip #TheMarathonContinues 🏁🏁🏁
The LAPD told The Blast they are “investigating” and they “believe it is not their officers on the tape for several reasons. We’re told LAPD broadcasts on a digital frequency, and the audio in question appears to be analog.”
That said, “Even though police are fairly certain it’s not their officers on the audio, they have not completely ruled it out, and therefore are continuing to investigate the situation.”
Let’s hope they get to the bottom of it expeditiously.
Nonetheless, Hussle’s parents will not be swayed by this foolishness. Even before the service, his mother Angelique Smith posted a beautiful message to everyone mourning the loss of her son.
Smith said,” When you live your life and you have God on your side. When God dwells inside of you, there is no fear. Everything is in perfect, everything is in the divine perfect order of our creator. I have perfect peace and I have strength and I want to lift you up. Please, do not stay down. Do not stay stuck. Do not mourn because Nipsey is great.”
She continued, “And now he is even greater because he has no bounds in no limits. His energy is everywhere. He’s there with you now and he’s here with me now. Please be encouraged.”
Watch the full clip below:
The man accused of shooting Hussle is 29-year-old Eric Holder. He was arrested in Bellflower, California, which is located in southeast Los Angeles.
Los Angeles police Chief Michel Moore implied there was a feud between Hussle and Holder. He “declined to elaborate on the feud between the two, saying he didn’t want to jeopardize any potential prosecution, but he said the suspect approached Nipsey and others multiple times, engaging them in conversation,” CNN.com reported. Moore did say the dispute does not appear gang-related.
Rest in power, Nipsey Hussle.
