"Lauren London that's baby, though. And rest in peace to [Nipsey]", he said.

However, the Tunnel Vision rapper changed his tune a little later, after receiving criticism from T.I. and The Game, and getting his music pulled from Los Angeles' Power 106.

"For me the outrage against Kodak Black is less about Lauren London and more about Nipsey Hussle", adds the 27-year-old.

The controversy also comes at a time when Kodak, who changed his legal name from Dieuson Octave to Bill K. Kapri in 2018, awaits trial in SC on allegations he raped a woman in a Florence, S.C., hotel room.

This follower opted to defend Black by saying: "I don't think Kodak had any bad intentions he's just awful at articulating his points. It's "You disrespected his woman". I'll be the best man I can be for her.

"We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black", the radio host tweeted.

"Women are not seen as deserving of respect and boundaries and personal space", she says.

Black later gave a half-hearted apology to London saying he was sorry for disrespecting her, "even though he didn't".

When a friend is heard asking Kodak is "he's shooting his shot", Kodak backtracked and answered 'I'm not trying to shoot at her'. Don't try to little boy me on the internet'.

He then reportedly kicked the dying man and fled the scene.

Numerous players such as Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook and LeBron James have also paid homage through social media posts, sneakers and memorable on-court performances as Nipsey Hussle's legacy continues to live on.

Nipsey Hussle's alleged killer returned to the spot where he shot the rapper after hearing him speak once he fired the first shots, according to witnesses.
