Even though Dr. Dre is a legend in the hip-hop game, there are a number of people on social media that claim he’s exploiting Nipsey Hussle’s death.
Ever since an Instagram story of Dre, Snoop, and the Game appeared on YouTube that had the three rappers in the studio with a portrait of Nip in the background fans have had an issue.

Dre posted a picture of him along with the Nipsey portrait, and fans remembered lyrics from Nispey songs that suggested Dre wouldn’t work with the rapper while he was alive.
Fans have been leaving messages accusing the legendary producer of clout chasing on social media saying things like, “Nah, Dre ignored Nipsey while he was still alive, f*ck him.”
Instagram photos from the session also show Dre and Game posing next to a portrait of the slain rapper, which evidently sparked controversy online due to an old interview Nip did with Bootleg Kev in 2013.
During Nip’s conversation with Kev, Nip addressed a line on “Mr. Untouchable” referencing Dre and the notion Dre didn’t support him or other burgeoning West Coast gangsta rappers.
“What I said about the Dre situation was just me being a real nigga,” Nip said. “It wasn’t like a direct shot. It was just like me speaking what was true to me at the moment. We doing us, and we gonna push regardless of co-signs, help, people coming down dropping ropes. I felt like if I’m sitting back in the game, and I’m watching Nipsey Hussle, and I’m watching Dom Kennedy, and I’m watching YG at that moment developing a situation, I just felt like what I would do — I wouldn’t spend money.
