AceShowbiz - Future has landed in hot water over his Instagram comment regarding fellow rapper Nipsey Hussle. In the wake of Nipsey's tragic death, many people including Fewtch have been sending prayers and supportive messages for Nipsey, who was shot to death in front of his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles on March 31. However, Future's words have raised some people's eyebrows.
It came down after Young Scooter posted on Instagram an image of an old tweet from Nipsey. The tweet saw the late musician explaining that he was teaching "the game" to his friends so they could succeed in life. Captioning the screenshot, Scooter wrote, "We need more n****s like [Nipsey Hussle]...It's too much greed and n****s hating on they own people."
Responding to the post, Future wrote in the comment section, "Yeah we do need more like us...I been teaching and preaching for a decade also showing and proving what hard work and dedication get u." At the end of his comment, he added the hashtag #RIPNip.
While Future most likely didn't have an ill intention in the comment, people didn't seem to take the comparison well. "I get what Future was sayin but nah you not in Nipsey lane at all. U a terrible role model and you treat your baby mamas like s**t," a fan blasted at Future.

Another user on Twitter, meanwhile, accused Future of "trying to class himself into the same category as Nipsey in terms of inspiration and mentoring," adding that it was "funny" to his/her. The fan continued, "it just shows that everything you do on this earth is noted. Don't assume you're respected just because you're famous."
Nothing Nipsey ever did was for validation, you can tell he genuinely cared about the next generation. Spent his time spreading knowledge and wisdom that the system couldn’t provide whilst Future is out here degrading women and encouraging us to drink lean— . (@naixche) April 3, 2019
"Future never motivated me Like nipsey did! I'm sorry," read another tweet. Another fan thought that Future comparing himself to Nipsey was "the most disrespectful s**t."

This arrives after Nipsey's brother Samiel Asghedom recalled his brother's final moments in a new interview with LA Times. Samiel said he jumped into his car parked outside his grandmother's house upon learning about the shooting. He raced down the streets, ignoring the red lights to arrive at the scene as soon as possible. He remembered saying, "1, 2, 3, 4," noting how a crowd had formed around Nipsey.
Calling his brother's death an "execution," Samiel opened up about his rage. "If somebody would've been there - if I would've been there - I would've shot back," he said. "I just wish I would've been there."
Samiel paid tribute to Nipsey in an interview with ABC News. "He was a brother, a musician, an entrepreneur, a people's champ," he said. "He was somebody that believed in the process of hard work, determination and just the positivity of somebody staying in the area that he grew up in and making something out of nothing."
Samiel added, "He was a role model to the community, to the kids, and to the mothers and the grandmothers and the community that watched him grow up and seen him as a youngster, a family man, a father, raising his kids."
