As we all deal with the tragic loss of Nipsey Hussle, social media has been flooded with tributes, anecdotes and inspirational quotes from Hussle.

When Atlanta rapper Young Scooter reposted one of Nipsey’s old tweets about taking care of your own on Instagram, Future hopped in the comments and compared himself to the late rapper, and was quickly met with backlash.

“I taught all my ni**as how to fish,” the Nipsey quote read. “Some caught more than others. Some said they rather be fed. Some [passed] me up in the process. But at the end of it all, I know ain’t hide the game from my people and I’m real for that.”

Scooter wrote in his IG post that we need more people in the world like Nipsey, and Future’s response was “Yeah we do need more like us.. I been teaching and preaching for a decade also showing and proving what hard work and dedication get u.”

Scooter has since deleted the post, but screenshots live on forever.

Needless to say, some people weren’t here for Future’s comment comparing himself to Nipsey Hussle and the “Crushed Up” rapper was subsequently dragged for seemingly making the situation all about himself.

To be fair, Future does give back to the community … but many pointed out that he had no business putting himself in the same light as someone like Nipsey Hussle.

“Nigga I know you ain’t comparing yourself to Nip,” one fan wrote. “I rocks rocks with some of your music, but you need to sit the f**k down! You haven’t done sh*t for your son, let alone your community…and all you rap about is bitches, drug addiction and a bunch of bullsh*t…don’t ever compare yourself to a man like Nip!!! Make sure you’re able to compare yourself to a man like [Russell Wilson] first mf!!! Wtf…what’s one thing you’ve been teaching other than Molly Percocet, stick talk and low life! Sitcho goofy ass down!”

Another fan commented: “STFU…Mr. I Want My Credit [Too]. You can’t even RESPECT a woman or be faithful and it shows… A real KING doesn’t have just a following but a FAMILY FOUNDATION also… Sh*t crazy, everybody [wants] RECOGNITION for sh*t they should be DOING ANYWAY!!! You should be EMPOWERING OTHER BLACK MEN TO BE SUCCESSFUL OR SUCH AS YOURSELF. That’s what [you’re] supposed to do!!!”

Said another fan: “Boy that’s a big cap. No you need to help these kids, [you’re an] influencer bruh, get these young ni**as off the street. Teach them how to own sh*t. Y’all ain’t teaching them nothing but drugs. Bruh stop with the cap my ni**a.”

Another fan wrote: “@future ni**a shut up.. don’t you dare say ‘us’ … [Nipsey] actually raps about life [and] struggles [and] our people. You rap about drugs [and] bitches smh. FOHHHHH”

The dragging didn’t stop there either. You already know folks on Twitter had something to say too.

In the words of DJ Khaled … Future, you played yourself!
