March 31st 2019, seen a young American rapper, Entrepreneur and community activist leave the world. This was a tragic incident when we lost Nipsey Hussle. He suffered from 10 gun shots that lead to his death.
Nipsey Hussle, actual name Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was born on August 15 1985 to Angelique Smith and Dawit Asghedom. He was brought up in the Crenshaw neighborhood of South Los Angeles. He had brother and sister. He dropped out of school before graduating.
Soon he joined a local Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips and had a stage name Nipsey Russell and did stand-up comedian. Once his father Dawit took the family to a trip to Eritrea, East Africa and from his return the trip inspired community activist and his entrepreneurial spirit.
His music career although was a short one, could have been a good one if he was still alive. He started with a small mixed tape in the year 2005 which helped him build up for a better one. His hits started with “Bullets Ain’t Got No Name series” that seems so ironic now. The 10 bullets he was shot did have his name. From 2010 to 2013 he came up with “Leaving Epic Records and The Marathon series” album to larger audience. 2013 – 2019 was his next one “Crenshaw and Victory Lap”.
As his inspiration for community activism started, he aimed to on giving solutions and inspiration to young black men like him so that they achieve and lead a better life. He did fund to many of his schools in his neighborhood and also used to spend time with the students. He was also part of a panel to design these programs and activities. He also conveyed prevention of gang violence through his rapping. He also approached LAPD to have a discussion on this to prevent the gang violence before he was killed.
