Ermias Joseph Asghedom, famously known as Nipsey Hussle was recently murdered on March 31st, 2019 in front of his self-made store in his hometown. He was a 34-year-old rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur, and an activist, especially in his own community.
Nipsey Hussle was very much involved in his community and consistently giving back to his people. He was highly admired by the people around him because of his positive deeds. Being an outsider looking into his work and service, he is highly appreciated because we need people like him. We needed him. His care and love for not only his city of Los Angeles but his people bring so much light to his life and what he truly stood for while he was on this earth.
The funeral was held on April 11, 2019, and some lovely words were shared about Nipsey by his girlfriend and mother of one of his children Lauren London. She expressed that " His soul was majestic...a gentle father, and a patient leader, a divine light, and brilliant…". These words coming from a person so close to him shows that he was an amazing person. Words were also shared from his brother Samiel Asghedom "he walked into the room he was the um.. he took control of the world, he was positive, even at a young age."
A marvelous man was taken away from us from senseless Gun violence only raised awareness to the people. It raised awareness on how we should only look out for each other and spread only love because the hate isn't the way to go, it will not bring light and greatness to any situation. Nipsey would want us to spread love and positivity amongst each other because that is literally all he did. Rest In Peace NIP, thank you, your legacy will live on.
