Met you almost 10 years ago @nipseyhussle… So much determination in your eyes & forward thinking in your language. Truthfully hadn’t met anyone from your walk of life & at your age who was talking that Level Up the way you were. So even from a distance i watched the moves you made & was proud of your accomplishments bcuz i knew they came from a place of hard work & what you envisioned to do. With that & the way you carried yourself came respect from everyone, cuz i don’t know anyone whose ever spoke bad on you. So to hear you were killed today at a establishment you worked so hard for, not only for yourself but for your community is wack af. This is bad for the Hip Hop culture but also for us as a people. Not only kill our own, but kill one who was tryna help our own. My condolences to your family, your kids, & @laurenlondon. #RIPNIP 💙 P.S. You came thru dolo to fuck wit me in NY 1 night at the studio & we just chopped it up & played some music.. & i always thought you was solid for that, but i regretted we didn’t record anything that night. I never brought it up to you bcuz i thought we had more time. 🙏🏾🕊

Rolled down my window 12 years ago on Crenshaw & Slauson as you handed me your demo & said “Chuck, don’t frisbee my shit homie… give a young nigga a ear”. From that day to letting you open up for me on tour & us going around the world together, creating a bond & watching your growth to today…… Murdered my friend in front of his own store on a Sunday at that !!! After just talking to you on the phone just last night about the Dr. Sebi documentary, family, the kids & how we were both bout to f&$k the summer up with this music, the world loses a true king. A man that was truly about everything he spoke & stood up for all that he believed in. I keep seeing your name in these headlines bro, but it seems unreal to me…. like, I just cannot believe you gone !!!! I love you….. I’m really broken & saddened by the fact they did this to you SMMFH !!!!! I can only imagine what your family is going through right now… This was not how your life on earth was supposed to end !!!!!!!! They don’t even make friends like you no more…… @nipseyhussle 🙏🏾 & in LA, at his own store ?!?!? A store & business he put there for his people ?!?!? Los Angeles, how we let this happen ?!?!?!?!? I’m ashamed of you right now !!!!! Can’t even live out ya whole life in this city no more… this shit right here is just krazy to me !!!!!!!!!!!! #RestInPeaceNip can’t even fuckin believe it’s actually your name attached to all these REST IN PEACE posts !!!!! SMFH

We are at a great loss today. This hurts. Straight to the point. It’s dangerous to be an MC. Dangerous to be a b-ball player. It’s dangerous to have money. Dangerous To Be A Black Man. So much hatred. We live like our brothers and sisters in third world countries live. Right in America. Decisions we make about our own life be based on decisions cuz we might not live. Its so deep rooted. It’s not a easy fix. Hard to fix anything when kids are still living in poverty. I ain’t shutting up though, Nipsey is a True voice. He will never be silenced. He still is A stand up General for the People who never left his people. He is Loved by the people. Prayers for his family. Let’s keep pushing Truth for The Man. Love You King Nipsey Hussle/ Ermias Asghedom Respectfully, Nasir Jones
