Nipsey Hussle: Barack Obama Pays Tribute To Late Rapper

The former president of the United States, Barack Obama has paid a moving tribute to late rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle, who was gunned down on March 31st, 2019.

At a celebration of the late rapper’s life at the Staples Center in Los Angeles today, a close friend, Karen Civil, read out a letter written by the former president in which he wrote of his admiration for Hussle’s community work and philanthropy.

The tribute reads in part,

‘While most folks look at the Crenshaw neighborhood where he grew up and see only gangs, bullets and dispair, Nipsey saw potential,’ Obama wrote. ‘He saw hope. He saw a community that even through its flaws, taught him how to keep going. He set an example for young people to follow and is a legacy worthy to follow,’
