It’s been over a week since Ermias Joseph Asghedom, more commonly known as Nipsey Hussle, was gunned down in front of his newly established Marathon clothing store in Los Angeles. He was there without his bodyguard because it was an emergency trip to dole out an entire wardrobe to a longtime friend whom just finished a twenty year bid. The store was built on Crenshaw, in the heart of the gang warzone, and was meant to be a beacon of hope + a place of unity. He was 33 years old.
I’m not going to say anything more about Nipsey the man. That’s all you need to know if you have a pulse. Please enjoy the following Nipsey joints – I believe they are his best. Rest in power, Nip.
