Dear Friends and Family of Nipsey:
I would on no account met Nipsey Hussle, nonetheless I would heard some of his music by means of my daughters, and after his passing, I had the chance to check additional about his transformation and his group work.
While most individuals check out the Crenshaw neighborhood the place he grew up and see solely gangs, bullets, and despair, Nipsey observed potential. He observed hope. He observed a bunch that, even by means of its flaws, taught him to always preserve going. His choice to spend cash on that group pretty than ignore it — to assemble a experience teaching coronary heart and a coworking home in Crenshaw; to hold up the Eritrean-American group; to set an occasion for youthful people to adjust to — is a legacy worth of celebration. I hope his memory evokes additional good work in Crenshaw and communities desire it.
Michelle and I ship our sympathies to Lauren, Emani, Kross, and the entire Asghedom family and to all those who beloved Nipsey.
