‘Disrespecting the deceased is not news’: Rappers call for Fox News to fire Ingraham over Nipsey Hussle segment

By Timothy Bella April 16 at 5:15 AM

In “FDT,” his hit song with rapper YG, Nipsey Hussle made his feelings clear about Donald Trump. In the music video for one of the most popular protest anthems of 2016, Hussle walked down the streets of Crenshaw in South Los Angeles with throngs of friends, fans and neighbors flashing expletive-laden signs disparaging the then-Republican candidate.

One day after a memorial service for the 33-year-old rap star and community activist who was killed in a shooting in that same part of South L.A., Fox News host Laura Ingraham zeroed in on that song to offer her own laughter-filled analysis of his legacy last week. Referring to Hussle ironically as “this dear artist,” she showed a clip of the “FDT” video and focused on the song’s chorus, which disparages Trump with an expletive — “a very creative refrain,” she noted.

“So, the chorus it goes on and on. Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever basically for African Americans?” she asked on Friday.


Now, Snoop Dogg, T.I., The Game and other notable hip-hop and R&B artists are calling on Fox to fire Ingraham for her “disrespect” of the slain rapper. The artists shared clips of the Hussle segment on their Instagram accounts, drawing millions of views and mounting support for their campaign against Ingraham, who faces yet another public pushback for comments made on-air.
