“Out of respect for Nipsey, I will be postponing the release of the new music I planned on releasing this month… until I feel the time is right,” she wrote. “I want to take this time to remember and reflect on the life of the legendary Nipsey Hussle. Thank you for understanding. Long live NH.”

Aiko joins the likes of ScHoolboy Q, YG and Machine Gun Kelly in delaying the release of music following Nipsey’s death.

Nipsey was shot and killed outside of his Marathon Clothing store on March 31. A memorial service for the slain rapper will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday (April 11) from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. local time.
