Reports surfaced that Jay-Z had created a $15m trust fund for the children of Nipsey Hussle. This report happens to be false even though it went viral and everyone on social media was praising the rapper for the kind gesture.
Nipsey, who died earlier this week in LA, left behind two children.
While tributes poured in for him and prayers have been offered for him an article spread like wildfire on social media, claiming that Jay-Z had stepped in to make sure Nipsey’s kids would be alright.
A snap of the article’s headline was circulated but soon proven to be from a random hip-hop blog that was created mainly to sell advertising and spread sensationalist news.
