Before Los Angeles rapper YG took the stage over the weekend at Coachella, the "FDT" rapper dedicated his performance to his former close friend and collaborator, Nipsey Hussle, who was fatally shot on Mar. 31 outside of his apparel store in LA.

YG played an animated video of Nipsey Hussle getting presented his angel wings by the late Tupac Shakur before a video of Nipsey Hussle telling everyone to "stay motivated" played prior to YG gracing the stage.

"Coachella 19. Nipsey Hussle this one for you my ni**a. Let's go!," YG said before popping up on stage.

YG performed his hit single "Big Bank" alongside Big Sean and 2Chainz. The rapper also performed his single, "FDT," which features Nipsey Hussle.
