Pusha T shares a message following the tragic death of Nipsey Hussle.
The hip-hop community won't be healed from the death of Nipsey Hussle for a long time. The Crenshaw rapper was a rare breed in the rap game which is what made every project he released so special. He'd intertwine his storytelling with gems about life, money, the streets, and so much more. A full day after his death, Pusha T took to Twitter to express his thoughts on Nip's death and how his death is a loss for the community at large.
"We have done @NipseyHussle wrong," he wrote. "He was sharing his purest self, his vision, and traits from his heritage with all of us: empowerment and a sense of community, something that many of us don’t have. White supremacy at its finest couldn’t have done something this terrible."
Nipsey Hussle's work in the community was praised earlier today by the LAPD and the mayor of Los Angeles. Shortly after his death, the LAPD Commissioner tweeted that he and Roc Nation were going to meet with police officials to discuss ways to curb gang violence. The meeting was set up for yesterday, the day after he was shot.
Pusha T previously paid homage to Nip of Sunday, reflecting on the run they had in 2018 that led their respective albums to earn Grammy nods.
"I was honored to share in such an amazing year with you musically," he wrote. "We spoke abt how they let the “real ones” in the building and how the Grammys “got it right” this time. I would gauge everyone’s music credibility based on if they mentioned you."
