Hip-hop has lost one of their greatest sons. Rapper Nipsey Hussle was gunned down Sunday in Los Angeles near his Marathon Clothing store. Two other people were injured in the shooting around 3:30 p.m. They were transported to a hospital, where both are in stable condition. The 33-year-old born Ermias Davidson Asghedom was shot several times in the head and torso. Before his death, Nipsey was in the process of releasing a documentary about Dr.Sebi, who claimed to have the cure for AIDS before his passing in 2016. Many speculate on whether the MC’s death had something to do with the government, a personal hit, or was gang-related.

 

While the reason for the shooting of Nispey is unknown, the Los Angeles native is remembered for his dedication to bettering the impoverished Crenshaw community. Hundreds have since gathered in front of his Marathon Clothing store to pay their respects by leaving memorial candles and flowers.

 

The hip-hop community also gave their thoughts on the death of the slain MC. Artists such as J.Cole, Pharrell, Nas, and Diddy were among the many who poured out their condolences for Nipsey’s friends, family, and his longtime girlfriend Lauren London.

We are at a great loss today. This hurts. Straight to the point. It’s dangerous to be an MC. Dangerous to be a b-ball player. It’s dangerous to have money. Dangerous To Be A Black Man. So much hatred. We live like our brothers and sisters in third world countries live. Right in America. Decisions we make about our own life be based on decisions cuz we might not live. Its so deep rooted. It’s not a easy fix. Hard to fix anything when kids are still living in poverty. I ain’t shutting up though, Nipsey is a True voice. He will never be silenced. He still is A stand up General for the People who never left his people. He is Loved by the people. Prayers for his family. Let’s keep pushing Truth for The Man. Love You King Nipsey Hussle/ Ermias Asghedom Respectfully, Nasir Jones

Nipsey’s legacy will live on in the hearts of the hip-hop community and those who loved him the most. His dedication to Black empowerment and wealth is why the MC is bigger than just hip-hop. A true revolutionary who wanted to see his people do better and be better. R.I.P. Nipsey Hussle!
