Rihanna has expressed her heartb-reak after discovering text messages from Nipsey Hussle about his plans to record a collaboration together before his d-eath. Nipsey d-ied two weeks ago at the age of 33 after being sh-ot and k-lled in south Los Angeles, and Rihanna was among the first celebrities to pay tribute to the beloved rapper.
Days after Nipsey’s d-eath, hip hop producer Hitmaka posted a screenshot of his messages with Nipsey on Instagram.
It showed them agreeing that a new song they were working on, titled On My Mind, would be perfect for Rihanna to feature on.
Hitmaka writes: ‘If this was U and Rihanna. Hot 100 #1. I just did that last night.
Got plenty s–t 4 u [sic].’ Nipsey replies: ‘We gotta get Rihanna then. Ima work on this one. This a Go! [sic].’ De-vastated at the missed opportunity to work with Nipsey, RiRi reposted the screenshot with the crying and b-roken heart emojis.

Fans are now pushing Rihanna to record a guest verse on the track in Nipsey’s honour, with one of her followers stating: ‘Do it for him.’ One fan agreed: ‘Sis gotta release the track,’ while another added: ‘We NEED it!!!! For the culture.’
The Work singer has been particularly affected by Nipsey’s d-eath, and later shared a tribute video featuring a montage of photos of Nipsey and his longtime girlfriend Lauren London.
RiRi captioned the video: ‘I’m so sorry @laurenlondon.’
After news of his tr-agic d-eath b-roke, Rihanna said in an emotional Instagram post: ‘This doesn’t make any sense! My spirit is shaken by this! Dear God may His spirit Rest In Peace and May You grant divine comfort to all his loved ones! I’m so sorry this happened to you.’ A public memorial service for Nipsey will be held at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Thursday morning.
