Reflecting on the shocking and tragic death of Nipsey Hussle, Eazy-E’s daughter, EBIE, has released a cover and visuals for “Double Up,” as an outlet to her grief and tribute to his life in Los Angeles.
Having lost her father young, she’s constantly heard from his fans that listening to Eazy-E and NWA somehow keeps him alive in their hearts. She finally understood this as she dove deeper into Nipsey’s music and legacy; feeling deeply connected to his modern day stories of a Crenshaw gangster turned businessman and father.
As a singer and songwriter herself, she was introduced to the rapper through the local hip hop community and had been building a friendship based on mutual respect that represented the past and future of Westside rap culture. EBIE had been following Nipsey’s career for the past few years and felt a sense of pride in seeing him finally having the larger audiences of music embrace him and had been hoping for her moment to collaborate one day. With her first single, “Heart Hurts,” aimed for release at the end of June, her expression of feelings have just begun and we can’t wait to share it all with you.
