Barack Obama Wrote Paying Tribute To Nipsey Hussle: “I’d Heard Some Of His Music Through My Daughters”

Look, let’s all face it, the late rapper is larger than life and his commitment towards his community, has been recognized though tragically, Eric Holder didn’t appreciate. Just in case you don’t know, Barack Obama paid tribute to Nipsey Hussle. This was addressed to the Nipsey’s friends and family and read by his friend Karen Civil, during his memorial service in Los Angeles on Thursday. The former President of the United States started by admitting he never knew Nipsey but heard his music through his daughters.

While most folks look at the Crenshaw neighborhood where he grew up and see only gangs, bullets, and despair, Nipsey saw potential. He saw hope. He saw a community that, even through its flaws, taught him to always keep going. His choice to invest in that community rather than ignore it — to build a skills training center and a coworking space in Crenshaw; to lift up the Eritrean-American community; to set an example for young people to follow — is a legacy worth of celebration. I hope his memory inspires more good work in Crenshaw and communities like it.
