It was so sad to hear of the passing of Nipsey Hussle. He was a well-respected rapper out of LA who was gunned down yesterday in front of a clothing store he owned in his old neighborhood. He was taking pictures with fans and a cowardly gunman shot him 6 times, two to the head, before he flew the scene.
Some have called Nipsey the modern day 2 Pac. That’s how much he meant to the Hip Hop community, who is hurting right now. The LA Police Commissioner revealed that he was set to meet with Nipsey today to discuss gang-relations and how to help the youth. Yes he had a past, but his story was about redemption. He was doing great things and was set to do even more. He always encouraged his people to invest in land instead of just jewelry. He sowed in to his people and his community.
Nispey Hussle is survived by two children, one by his long-time girlfriend actress Lauren London. He was 33 years old.Prayers and condolences go out to his family, friends, and fans. Rest well, King.
