In addition, Tacopina also told Entertainment Tonight that he is suspicious of the timing. “We’re placing the bar,” Tacopina told the outlet. “To be honest, I think that the timing of this was not to happen. I think that’s the whole purpose of this is to ensure that, to him, that is, to do homage to Nipsey [Hussle], on Sunday, at the grammy’s.”

Tacopina went on to say, “There is no reason why he wouldn’t be able to run, because he will be in a position to post bail. The district attorney is not even involved in it. It’s just a police case now. The timing is more than a little suspicious.”

YG and a variety of other artists, including John Legend, and Meek Mill, will be deemed to be performing in a tribute to the late rapper Nipsey Hussle at the awards show. Hussle, 33, was shot to death in 2019, out of his Marathon clothing store in the South Los Angeles neighborhood where it is located.
