So, I won’t lie, son. I’m fucking sick right now, man. I mean, I was a big fan of Nipsey Hussle, fam. All I know is, his murder is some bullshit, bruh. Like, why would somebody kill a guy who was ACTIVELY trying to better his community? Look, no one deserves what happened to Nipsey, but he especially demanded better, folks. All in all, situations like this make me wonder if being a resource is even worth it, brethren.
Ok, for those who missed it, Nipsey was shot outside of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles. Apparently, some idiot hit him and two others around 3 PM in the damn afternoon. Now, at the moment, no one knows why Nipsey was targeted. On one hand, people are assuming that the incident had something to do with his history as a Crip. On the other hand, conspiracy theorists are alleging that the attack was due to a Dr. Sebi documentary that Nipsey was producing. All I can say is, we don’t know, but I’d put all of my money on a jealous hater, son.
In any case, I became a fan of Nipsey Hussle back in 2010. Around that time, my dude Kof put me on to his The Marathon mixtape. Now, after playing “Keys 2 the City” an insane amount of times, I officially joined the bandwagon, man. From then, I clocked in whenever he dropped a new project. Moving on, all of his work culminated with the release of his Victory Lap album last year. Side note, everyone can read my previous review of the record. It’s still my favorite Rap album from 2018, fam. Anyway, Nipsey was always consistent with his music and the quality never waned.
On top of that, Nipsey was an avid investor in his neighborhood. Now, when I say “investor,” I’m not just talking about money, bruh. Frankly, he invested in the people, son. He started businesses, he gave people jobs and he gave folks a wealth of free knowledge and information. He was always an advocate for Black ownership and made it his mission to steer kids away from gang violence. Point blank, Nipsey Hussle was a good dude, man. The fact is, his death is senseless as shit, fam.
In the end, my prayers go out to Lauren London, his kids and the rest of his family. Ultimately, no one needs to lose a loved one in such a ridiculous manner, bruh. By and by, I truly hope they catch the dumbass who did this to him, son. At the end of the day, it’s always tragic when negative things happen to positive people. That is all. LC out.
P.S. Below are some of my favorite Nipsey jams. Let’s remember his music the right way, man. Good day.
