Nipsey Hussle was a rapper out of Los Angeles, California.
Yes, I said "was", because he was shot almost 4 months ago.
March 31, 2019.
He was shot outside his clothing store in Crenshaw. You may or may not have heard of this, depending on if you are a follower of rap music or have any social media.
The day Nipsey Hussle died, the world went crazy with emotions. Hussle was 33 years old when he was killed. But, Nipsey Hussle was more than just a rapper, he was an activist in his community and was bringing change to the world.
Nipsey Hussle was open about his affiliation with the Rollin' 60s, an affiliate of the Crips in the Crenshaw area.
Hussle bought an entire strip center in Crenshaw and opened up a store The Marathon Clothing for his clothing line Marathon. What is special about this brand is that if you had the app for his store, you could scan the clothes and get access to songs and videos, or even order directly from the app.
Hussle was an entrepreneur and was trying to advance his hometown. He also created a tech-science center for the underprivileged youth in his area to go to and learn.
In partner with Puma, he helped build a basketball court across from his grandmother's house in Crenshaw. Constantly, Nipsey Hussle was trying to help the younger generation, give them a different path to take.
Hussle was trying to help out his neighborhood and speak about it. He had a relationship with the LAPD, was making a film about Dr. Sebi, coming up with new business ideas and models, was giving a voice for his community.
Nipsey Hussle was trying to give the younger generations opportunities, build up his neighborhood, and give the world a different view of what his hometown was despite the stereotypes. There's more to Crenshaw than gangs and violence.
Thanks to Nipsey Hussle, there's opportunity.
Nipsey Hussle was an activist for his community, and he'll go down in history for that, as well as his music.
It's been 4 months since the passing of Nipsey Hussle, but The Marathon Continues.
