Fans and the entire hip hop community mourn today as it feels like the community has lost one of it most importantly soldiers of this era. Nipsey Hussle was gunned down in front of his own store in the infamous Slauson and Crenshaw district.
Hip hop fans know that Nipsey was a breath of fresh air to conscious hip hop artists who still hold their street credibility. Nip was more than just a rapper, he was an influencer, a role model for gang members, a father, and a community activist. Through rap is how Nipsey gained the notoriety in order to spread love through growing businesses, job creation, spreading knowledge, and giving back in other ways.
Nipsey, you will truly be missed. RIP
