Nipsey Hussle – Wack 100 Calls Out Radio Stations & Bandwagon Fans ‘Everybody Started Talking Like It Was The Popeyes Chicken Sandwich’
During an interview, he called out radio stations for waiting until after Nipsey Hussle died to start playing his music.
“You got a man who died with a million followers and no radio hit, and no Platinum plaques. But because everybody started talking like it was the Popeyes chicken sandwich, everybody jumped on the bandwagon, and now he done went 10,20 times Platinum. The radio is spinning his song… come on bro. How long did they spin his song? All day, every hour. Nipsey had 2,3 songs I felt should’ve went, last time I checked.”
He also shut down speculation that Nipsey Hussle was independent and pointed out that he was signed with Atlantic Records.
“This rumor about him being independent that’s some bulls***. If you scroll down to iTunes, it says Atlantic Records. Now he has a machine behind him. So where was all these fans? Nipsey’s never been on a world tour. Why? He didn’t die an A-list artist.”
“Let’s be real. Y’all talking about he was a legend, if he was a legend, why didn’t y’all treat him like that while he was here? We’re talking, as an artist and an entertainer. Stop saying a legend as if y’all acknowledged and honored him as a legend when he was here.”
“I feel Nipsey should’ve been a bigger artist.”
He also spoke on his controversial comments about Nipsey Hussle being shot after calling the alleged gunman, Eric Holder, a snitch.

Interestingly enough, his comments come just days after he apologized for appearing to sympathize with Holder (a.k.a S****y Cuz) for allegedly shooting Hussle.
A recording revealed Wack saying,
“It’s a harsh reality, but we’re stepping out of civilization into the jungle of gangbanging. S****y Cuz, the alleged gunman, when it comes to the rules of engagement of gang banging, he did what he was supposed to do when another gang banger calls you a f***ot, a pedophile or a snitch. You supposed to handle your business. And can’t nobody say that’s wrong. Is it some people saddened that it happened to who it happened to? Probably so. Im gonna call a spade a spade. You play football n***a, you better show up with a helmet.”
He later apologized after having a conversation with Hussle’s former manager, Eugene “Big U” Henley.
