R&B singer Kay Cola woke up with lots of thoughtful words about her relationship with slain hip hop music star, Nipsey Hussle. Today marks the one year anniversary of the late Compton rapper’s death, and many in the rap industry are offering tributes all over social media.

Kay Cola says she went to school with Nipsey at Cathway in Miracle Mile. She went on to say…

“I had manifested Nip into my life about a year before he passed even though we had mutual friends our whole lives, worked with the same musicians and partied at the same functions. He came into my life at one of the most trying times, and really saved it.”
