The story of Nipsey Hussle is a story that all good will humans must read and learn from.
It is a story that says “it might end in death but do not become afraid”.
Right there on the House floor, California’s Rep. Karen Bass, a Democrat, honored the late rapper-turned-entrepreneur.
“Nipsey Hussle used the platform he created with his music to lift our community as he climbed,” Bass said before entering her tribute into the congressional record. “His business ventures, his investments, his philanthropy, his community engagement — every step of the way, he had a sole purpose of bettering the community he came from.”
“A humble visionary, he saw the overlooked and welcomed the dismissed. He reminded our community that the power we hold is the power of where we come from and that the awareness of that power can never be taken from us,” Bass said Wednesday.
In another related development, City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson said he was submitting a motion to rename the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue to “Ermias ‘Nipsey Hussle’ Asghedom Square” after Hussle.
