We (@LAPDChiefMoore and I ) were meeting , at the request of @NipseyHussle with him and @rocnation tomorrow at 4pm to talk about ways he could help stop gang violence and help us help kids. I’m so very sad https://t.co/rcGtvw9c6L
Large crowd of crying people gathered at scene while helicopters of media whirred overhead.
“It ain’t just Los Angeles. He was an inspiration that was bigger than Los Angeles. You see all these people out here? He was really cool. He was a dope individual every time I met him”
It’s just after 9pm PT, crowds are growing. @NipseyHussle music playing loud. A big party is surrounding the whole intersection of Slauson and Crenshaw. #NipseyHussle @NBCLA @RickNBCLA https://t.co/iSJQIP3koR
Last year, Hussle had an interview with Forbes, saying;
“As a youth, he’d fallen prey to ignorance & self-destructiveness in narrative that was pushed on us through music in our generation. I see how damaging that was, for myself included, and we’re all subject to the social pressure. I wasn’t above it. Each of us are impacted by what’s going on around us. For me, understanding the platform I have and who it speaks to, it’s about being strategic. I wanted to redefine the lifestyle and what we view as important. When you hear ‘buy back the block’ as the narrative, that’s powerful. That’s a step towards redefining the expectation”
Few emcees have mastered the ability to clearly translate the relationship between culture and commerce. This rare breed of rappers share a powerful perspective, delivering coded messages for hustlers looking to step off the corner and young execs set on taking over the boardroom.
This doesn’t make any sense! My spirit is shaken by this! Dear God may His spirit Rest In Peace and May You grant divine comfort to all his loved ones! ??? I’m so sorry this happened to you @nipseyhussle
So so SAD man!! DAMN man this hurt.
