TMZ has been able to understand the tragic killing of Nipsey Hussle by Suge Knight, while the former CEO of Death Row Records is serving his 28-year sentence of imprisonment for willful homicide. For Suge, Nipsey's murder was all about an unwavering loyalty to his hood that ended up biting him at the end. "Many artists like Nipsey have the same problem as me," Knight said. "We are too loyal to our neighborhood." Suge also pointed out that the deception associated with the entertainment industry almost forces artists to return to their old place, because "when you go to Hollywood, everything is diluted."
Knight also implicitly stated that Nip's friend could have better protected him when he was near the hood. Nevertheless, Suge acknowledged what Nipsey meant for Los Angeles by stating, "I think Nipsey was trying to follow the same Tupac handbook for the community, and he came with YG as Snoop with Tupac." He hopes that Nip's legacy will unify Los Angeles street gangs: "What's good is that all groups are coming together now … we can be stronger considering what happens when we come together. "
