This is a sad day in Los Angeles, and the world. Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed today. Apparently, what we know so far is he was shot outside of his store, that he owned right in the city of Los Angeles. Also dead are others who were with him. The Marathon Clothing store was (and is) an inspiration to black men and women everywhere. A story of a kid born in the streets, raised in the hoods of Los Angeles, who turned his life around. He was talking about business ownership, giving back to the community, buying land, and also cryptocurrency.
Nipsey Hussle announced that he was working on a documentary about Dr. Sebi.
Nipsey got killed just before he could expose the government in his upcoming documentary about Dr. Sebi… who died mysteriously after claiming to have the cure for AIDS pic.twitter.com/IrCygL647I

I'm looking at this Nipsey situation from two angles.
1. He is building up his community & some hating ass peon shot him out of jealousy.
2. This was an assasination attempt because he is doing a documentary on Dr. Sebi.
Either way it goes it's fucked up. Nipsey is good people

Unfortunately, many people started to worry then, that something like this may happen.
At this time, we do not know who is responsible for this murder. It could very well have been a government hit, or just a coward ass hater. As a black man, inspiring black men and women to make real positive moves, it’s always CoIntelPro territory. They do not want a Black Jesus to rise. Many people are saying that his decision to highlight the advancements of Dr. Sebi put a target on his head. Please, do not attack anyone who thinks this may be the case, until we have more information. At this time people are just throwing out theories, while grieving over a terrible loss.
Left Eye (From TLC) was also about to give Dr. Sebi some serious pub, before she mysteriously died in a car accident. Was this a hit from someone who just hated his success? Or is there more to this story?
Either way, Today is a sad day. Rest in Peace Nipsey Hussle. You were a real one, and you will live on forever through the media content we have left from you.
(From Hip Hop Uncensored, talking about the announcement today. The Sad news of Nipsey Hussle being murdered today, outside of the Marathon Clothing Store.)
Seemingly ‘just before’ he was shot today, Nipsey Hussle tweeted “having strong enemies is a blessing.” Unfortunately, this may also have been a curse too. We’ll update this post as we learn more information about what happened today.
Having strong enemies is a blessing.

One hour later, Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed, outside of his Marathon Store. (watch Tariq Nasheed discuss this tragedy on YouTube)
Police says no one seen the shooter but the they had time to pop 3 dudes with multiple shots without being close, Sounds very familiar..Only giving the others minor injuries and Nipsey got straight kill shots. Yet people think a random hood nigga was that discreet wit perfect aim

At this time we do not know what happened and yes, that story is too familiar. We still ‘don’t know’ who shot 2pac or Biggie. Too many people have said this looked like a professional hit. That Nipsey was involved in gang life, has too many people saying ‘yep, that’s what happens’. But let us all be slow to reach conclusions. Yes, this very well could have been street shit. The hate in the hood is very real, and is also created and manufactured. All of these are reasons why these matters must be taken more seriously, than society takes them.
Such a Sad day. Rest in Paradise Nipsey Hussle. Live on forever!

RIP Nipsey. I just spent Thursday with him filming a video for a beautiful new song we created with Khaled. We filmed in Inglewood, close to where he grew up. He was so gifted, so proud of his home, so invested in his community. Utterly stunned that he's gone so soon.

Nipsey was all about his community, investing in Vector 90, a co-working space in South Central LA for entrepreneurs and place for young people to take classes in STEM. Please take a moment to watch this. His legacy. pic.twitter.com/OnrPS3cZeQ

Entrepreneurship aside Nipsey was also health conscious. He aimed to tackle the fast food monopolies by providing his community with healthier food options.
I hate that we find out all the great things someone does after they pass away

Bump this Checc Me Out today by Nipsey Hussle, with Dom Kennedy and Cobby Supreme.
…. rest in Power and thank you for what you did while you were here. May your memory live on forever, and may your example inspire others to pick up the torch, and push forward. Don’t let this make you afraid to try. Do not allow this story to make you not shoot for the stars. Aim high and do all you are capable of. Let’s band together and let this motivate us even more than before. May he live forever through all of us. The Hip Hop community owes it to this brotha to make music that inspires all who listen. Also, give interviews and live your life in a way that pulls us all UP!
Thinking of Nipsey Hussle and all the positive things he brought to the community he so loved. I took this pic this morning having no idea what it would mean at the end of the night. Reinvesting in others leaving no one behind. A powerul message from someone now gone at age 33. pic.twitter.com/gaP6HjMQvz
