Wack 100 accuses Blacc Sam of harming Nipsey Hussle’s legacy.
The music director made the claim during a recent conversation at the Clubhouse, where he was pressed about a missing cut from The Game’s Drillmatic: Heart versus mind. The project’s original tracklist included “World Tours” featuring the late Nipsey; however, Wack says he was dropped from the project shortly before its premiere; and all because Nipsey’s brother Sam was “selfish”.
“I got an email from my lawyer around 7:30 p.m., an hour and a half before it was due. Nipsey’s brother asked that it be taken down,” said Wack, who runs The Game.
Many fans weren’t surprised by Sam’s alleged request, as Wack continued to downplay Nipsey’s impact on culture, insisting the late artist was unworthy of ‘legend’ status. .
Wack suggested that his past comments had nothing to do with The Game and should not have affected Drillmatic.
“These niggas are in their feelings,” he continued. “You notice you got Meek Mill and a bunch of people over there Wack really disagree with… Whoever it is [The Game] work with, it works with. His shit ain’t my shit. The game made the rounds in Los Angeles, he was Nipsey’s biggest fan of all time.
Wack went on to say that Sam didn’t understand the industry and was letting “emotions get the better of business.” He said there had been plenty of opportunities to release new Nipsey music, but Sam hadn’t.
“The Game, Nipsey’s song is just working on a memory of Nipsey,” Wack said. “He’s not here to drop the music or promote the music, so it’s just a memory of Nipsey. So at the end of the day, I think where Blacc Sam is wrong, he’s being selfish with his anger…probably towards me.But he totally ignores the acknowledgment Game has given Nipsey since he left.
Wack said The Game x Nipsey collaboration would have inflated the late rapper’s back catalog, which would have increased the royalties Nipsey’s family receives.
“The only way to keep [Nipsey’s] his name goes through his music,” Wack said.
