Snoop Dogg released his latest single honoring his mentee and late friend in the video “Nipsey Blue,” the day before the 35th Birthday of the late rapper and community activist. In 2019, Hussle was fatally shot outside of his clothing store Marathon Clothing in South Central Los Angeles. Snoop’s song samples Dorothy Moore’s 1976 record “Misty Blue,” and primarily features the rapper singing along with the sample changing a few of the lyrics, like “baby” to “homie” and “Misty” to “Nipsey.”
