Nipsey Hussle has been put to rest. However, the conversation around his death will continue to rage as people wonder if he should have continued to operate in the neighborhood. Former incumbent hip-hop mogul Suge Knight is well aware of the hood policy happening in Los Angeles. He believes that Nip was faithful to a fault.
Saturday, April 13 TMZ posted a story where they talked to Suge from behind bars where he is serving a 28-year sentence for the murder of Terry Carter in 2015. He thinks that Nipsey's affinity for staying in and continuing to help the rough and depressing neighborhood in which he grew up was part of his downfall.
"Many artists like Nipsey have the same problem as me," Suge said. "We are too loyal to our neighborhood."
The former death row owner believes that the tragedy of Nipsey has positive spinoffs. "What's good is that all hoods are gathering now … we can be stronger considering what happens when we get together."
Nipsey was shot dead March 31st outside his The Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles. His funeral took place Thursday, April 11 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. More than 20,000 people attended this event. Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, President Obama, Jay Z and more.
On Friday, April 12, the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and West Slauson Avenue located at the corner of L.A. officially renamed Nipsey Hussle Square.
