Here are some indirect references to Nipsey Hussle on Nas‘ The Lost Tapes 2.
Nas also references Mets legend Daryl Strawberry on “Jarreau of Rap (Skat Attack)“; before joining the Mets, Strawberry played baseball at Crenshaw High School and is the influence behind Nipsey‘s signature Crenshaw logo.

- Beautiful Life = same sample as Keys 2 the City
