Nipsey Hussle was known for his positive community engagement.
While Future may well be doing great things in Atlanta, he’s far better known for his relentless and continued promotion of the Dirty Sprite — although he’s quit sipping himself — and not being particularly respectful toward women.
So when Future compared himself to Nipsey in response to his Freebandz artist Young Scooter’s tribute to the late Nip, Twitter had some questions.
“Yeah we do need more like us … I been teaching and preaching for a decade also showing and proving what hard word and dedication get u,” Future typed.
Here’s some of the reaction to that flex.
Scooter: We need more niggas like Nipsey
Future: Yeah we do need more like us!
Me: USSSS? pic.twitter.com/yIpgPNkd0r

It ain’t even that Future is active in his community. It’s that he took a moment that should’ve been praise for Nipsey and his life…..to only really praise himself.

Future seriously thinks he on Nipsey's level in terms of community building?
Same man that stopped using lean but still advocates drug abuse in his music?
