Ermias Asghedom, known professionally as Nipsey Hu$$le
was an American rapper, songwriter and businessman from Los Angeles, California.
He had a major impact on the culture with his music, positivity, independence and entrepreneurial spirit.
I can speak a lot about his achievements but that’s not what this article is about. It’s to pay homage to someone I not only looked up to but respected much for his fearlessness.
The poetry, melodies and message in his music moved me. I can relate what he went through not only as black man, but a man coming from nothing struggling to build something with no co sign.
Nip gave his life to the streets literally, but it wasn’t in vain. Everything he stood for will not only live on through me but the millions of people he impacted through his stories.
Truth be told I didn’t want to post this because most doing it for clicks, but this is far from that. I can go on all day about the man who inspired the world to hustle harder. But was also in the trenches repping for his community and making positive change.
The crazy thing about it you never know when it’s your time so here and now I will not continue you living with undeveloped potential. I commit here and now to do my best and put my whole heart in everything I pursue.
Thank you Nipsey I’m so inspired by your life, living your truth and speaking it through your music, that I will forever live my truth no matter if I have to die about it.
You changed my life forever thank you Nipsey Hussle Rest In Paradise.
