Nipsey Hussle was murdered in his hometown of Los Angeles yesterday right in front of his The Marathon Clothing store. He was reportedly shot five times in the body and once in the head. He’s now forever recognized as one of the best west coast artists of all-time and a great leader in his community who made great business moves and helped others prosper.
Today, Nipsey was supposed to meet with LAPD at 4PM pacific time to discuss preventing gang violence from happening in his Crenshaw neighborhood. According to TMZ, a meeting will still take place.
Roc Nation rep Jay Brown scheduled this meeting a few months back. The meeting was supposed to include Nipsey and two high ranking officials from the LAPD. Brown was in contact with L.A. Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff. Brown wants to continue to honor Nipsey by still making this meeting official.
TMZ sources added that a rep from Roc Nation will be there and it’ll most likely be Brown. Last night on Twitter, Soboroff expressed his emotions that he felt from Nipsey’s passing.
“We (@LAPDChiefMoore and I ) were meeting , at the request of @NipseyHussle with him and @rocnation tomorrow at 4pm to talk about ways he could help stop gang violence and help us help kids. I’m so very sad.“
Hopefully Nipsey’s goal of reducing violence in his neighborhood will be accomplished along with this meeting successful as well. He did a lot for his city and people helping it to become more peaceful would go a long way in honoring his legacy.
