J. Cole Sings Tribute Song To Nipsey Hussle Dreaville Festival With “Special Dedication”.

During his well-received set at Dreamville Festival, J. Cole took a moment to reflect on the life and legacy Nipsey Hussle. “I gotta take time on stage and acknowledge someone who had a huge impact on the community, on the f-ckin world,” he told the crowd before dedicating his performance “Love Yourz” to Nipsey’s everlasting image of consistency (in character).

Fittingly, “Love Yourz” off 2014 Forest Hills Drive, is a song about eternal reflections. The intimacy of the song gets lost when performed in front of thousands of concertgoers. Then again, it’s the gesture that counts.

Mind you, a thoughtful J. Cole chose “Love Yourz” for a reason: because of the didactic powers that are insinuated in the final measures of the song. “Heart beatin’ fast, let a n—a know that he alive/fake n—-s, mad snakes. Snakes in the grass let a n—a know that he arrived,” he raps to close “Love Yourz” in a softer more reflective voice.
