This is a bit tough to write. The week so far has been sad, angering, argumentative, and downright heartbreaking.
On Sunday, Mar. 31st, 2019 we unjustly lost a leader, a big homie, a father, fiancé, and friend to so many. A HUGE key to the Culture. Nipsey Hussle, aka Neighborhood Nip, was a blueprint for going from street glory to Black advocate and success story. His love of family and his hood led to entrepreneurial ventures that we all could mimic and be a part of in our own areas. Gone so soon.
Everyone has their time, but no one was ready for this. It’s unexplainable and unimaginable. But at least we got to witness the work and the man in his prime. The best thing we can do now is to work together to continue building on the blueprint Nipsey started. In all of our neighborhoods.
RIP to a great one. THIS ONE HURTS.
