(TIML NEWS) I still can not believe this Bullshit!!! Rest in power.
The loss of Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Davidson Asghedom, has not only hit the hip-hop community and music industry but family, fans and friends alike. Shortly after the West coast rapper was reportedly shot, many social media posts surfaced from outside Hussle’s Marathon Clothing store on Sunday afternoon (March 31).
Once the news was confirmed of his unexpected death, fellow rappers like Drake, Nas, J. Cole, Meek Mill, Chance the Rapper and more took to Twitter and Instagram to offer their condolences.
“I laugh to keep from crying, miss u lil bro, u were allways ahead of the game, heaven need u more than we do thank u for all the good times loco,” wrote Snoop Dogg in one of his Instagram posts.
“RIP NIPSEY HUSSLE,” tweeted J. Cole. “It hurt when you see peers go.”
Singer K. Michelle also voiced her anger about gun violence and shared her thoughts on Hussle’s senseless killing. “I hate u ni**as wit a passion I feel such a sense of rage. I’m sick of u people killing each other. It’s pathetic i hate it.”
Rihanna posted a photo of him and his daughter, Emani, on the Grammy Awards red carpet. “This doesn’t make any sense! My spirit is shaken by this! Dear God may His spirit Rest In Peace and May You grant divine comfort to all his loved ones!”

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

You were having the best run and I was so happy watching from distance fam nobody ever talks down on your name you were a real one to your people and to the rest of us. I’m only doing this here cause I want the world to know I saw you as a man of respect and a don. Rest easy my g.
