*Inheritance payments to the children of Nipsey Hussle have been delayed, jn light of a new legal situation involving a songwriter who worked with the late MC.
Court documents obtained by Radar Online detail a ruling made by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge which said “that additional evidence” or “additional documentation is required to grant Hustle’s brother Blacc Sam’s request to close the probate case.
According to Radar, Blacc Sam was appointed administrator of Hussle’s estate following his 2019 death. The entertainer left behind two children — a daughter named Emani who he had with his ex-girlfriend Tanisha Foster and a son named Kross who Hussle had with his girlfriend Lauren London. Emani and Kross are expected to be paid around $5 million each and will continue to receive payments for the remainder of their life.
In October 2023, Blacc Sam submitted a final report explaining that he handled all outstanding debts and creditor’s claims, Radar noted, adding that Blacc Sam mentioned that he reviewed all of Hussle’s property and assets. The rapper’s property and assets were worth around $11million.
A court hearing where Blacc Sam can present further documents to the judge is set for March.
An objection to the final report being approved and payments being made was filed a couple of weeks later by Tasleema Yasin, a songwriter who claimed to work with Hussle.
In 2019, Yasin originally filed a creditor’s claim against Hustle’s estate, under claims she collaborated with the rap star in 2016 on a song titled “Hussle & Motivation.” The tune was released months before Hustle’s death.
In 2022, a deal in the dispute was reached between Yasin and Sam. Under claims Yasin made, Sam agreed to award her 10% share of the Master Sound Recording of “Hussle & Motivation.” Yasin added that she was to be paid $35,000 for her work.
Fast forward to January and Yasin filed her objection to the final report. In the objection, the songwriter claimed that Sam had breached the deal they reached by failing to pay her the full amount. Yasin said she only received $16,000.
“Regrettably, the opposing party has thus far delayed the fulfillment of their obligations under the contract, and consequently, they are in breach of its terms,” Yasin claimed. “The original agreement with the Estate is deemed void due to multiple breaches. Ms. Yasin no longer seeks enforcement of this breached agreement. Instead, she is seeking damages because of these breaches and wishes to negotiate a new agreement that will protect her interests moving forward.”
Court documents captured claims from Yasin that she didn’t mean to cause Hustle’s family any trouble.
“My intention is not to burden the court or cause any distress to the involved family,” she said. “MY sole aim is to pursue a fair and just resolution. I am wholeheartedly committed to fully engaging with the court’s procedures, attending all hearings, and providing any additional necessary information. Considering these facts, I earnestly request the court to consider my objection and expedite the proceedings for a swift resolution.”
Despite Yasin’s claims, Blacc Sam requested her motion to be denied. According to Sam, the settlement she signed was with All Money In LLC. He argued that when Yasin signed that deal — she agreed to forever dismiss claims against Hussle’s estate. Sam further stated that Yasin said she needed to act against All Money In LLC if she believed money was owed.
As a result, Blacc Sam pleaded with the court to deny Yasin’s request and approve his final report. The final report from Blacc Sam will allow Hussle’s children to receive their full inheritance, Radar reported.
