264 The Life and Death of Nipsey Hussle

May 29, 2022

This week we take a look at one of the most interesting, influential, and tragic hip hop stories of the last 10 years. This week we're talking about the late great Nipsey Hussle. We cover everything from his early life in South Central LA, surviving gang life in the Rollin' 60's Crips, betting on himself and leaving a major record company to go independent,  becoming a rap super star,  owning an entire business plaza on the infamous intersection of Crenshaw and Slauson, reinvesting and giving back to his neighborhood and becoming a prolific community leader. We also discuss his untimely murder and a few conspiracies that have bubbled up on the internet since his tragic death.
