The Untold Truth Of Nipsey Hussle

  • Published: 03 April 2019
  • Rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed in front of his clothing store in Los Angeles on March 31, 2019, cutting short a life that had expanded far beyond the music industry. The former gangbanger had become an advocate for peace and economic opportunity in his neighborhood. This is his untold truth.

    Nipsey Hussle was born August 15, 1985 as Ermias Asghedom.

    "My real name, it means 'God will rise,' it's Ermias though, that's how you say it… Ermias, yeah."

    Hussle was ruthlessly gunned down in front of the Marathon Clothing Store, which he co-owned. The store had served as a hub for the artist to sell his own merchandise, and it brought more jobs to the poverty-stricken community.

    In February 2018, his brother Samiel told UPROXX:

    "Nip employs people from the area that he grew up with, that he knows,

    "What up cuz?"

    "Really a lot of them fresh out of prison."

    Hussle didn't stop with his clothing store, either. He announced another venture, Elite Human Hair, on Instagram in October 2016. In a 2017 interview with Complex, he said that business was booming, making a profit and paying for the employees, despite the fact that he'd never worked in the industry before.

    One of his biggest business-related accomplishments was a space he co-owned called Vector90, described on the official website as, quote, "an inner city coworking community."

    "In a nutshell, it's a space for entrepreneurs from the inner city to, you know, have an office."

    "I grew up around and here and there is absolutely no space like this."

    "A space to learn how to launch a business."

    The members-only building offers short-term leases and office space for entrepreneurs on the top floor. According to the Los Angeles Times, the lower level is open both to local children's organizations as well as to individual families.

      I herd this quote from a local women

      “Nipsy was always loyal to the community , was the community loyal to him. Haters and complacent people could have dont this juts as much as an elite hit swuad.
      Change up this stupid bullshit we do in poor communities and next time a Tupac or nipsy rises support fully and with full effect and loyalty. Cowards and complacent people and conspiracy theory’s backed off nothing but guesses no facts water down people form caring. Shame on you for this stupid fuckign clip

                                      If you look up Pizzagate, you'll understand why the people in positions of power would not want someone on the front lines of their community with an actual impact and political influence climbing the rungs of the ladder the way he was. The elite and powerful have local gangs on their payroll to do their dirty work. He was making real change, and someone felt threatened by his reach.

                                                        So dude made money off the hood life and in the process, made a few full time jobs. Then got blasted by a hater. That’s probably why rappers that make it always leave the hood. I’ve never heard his music but why is he posted up as a martyr? Or some kind of public leader?

This was a planned hit I just believe it so many things do not add up. His body guard was off and so conveniently this character rides by and say there go Nip. The conversation they had did not get ugly. Why would this dog shoot him 10 times and his closest friend inside did not come out even pretend he had a weapon. This was planned and excuted and it derived from jealousy and envy which turned in to hate. Those people know who gave the order Crabs in the bucket they are took this awesome soul from the world...😭😭😭😭😭💙💙💙💙🏁🏁🏁🏁.

I was young as well and lived in poverty mother was on drugs badly. I had to grow up early to take care of my 4 year old brother and myself. I lived in a drug infested gang neighborhood. People think Omaha is like the movie but It’s really not. It’s hard to survive unless you have a college degree. It’s so small everyone knows your business. Most people in the O are on meth, cocaine, Sherm, ecstasy. 51’s That’s all they know is drugs, gangs and shoot to kill. That’s where Malcom X was born Omaha, Nebraska they tore his Mother and Fathers house down. They don’t like us there. They have tunnels underground there. I don’t live there anymore I wasn’t born there either. But being there I learned street smarts at a very young age. Then moved to where I was born at with my father in the D. I did so much better wasn’t fighting all the time wasn’t doing a lot of things, I finally had guidance.
