Nipsey Hussle, un altro volto del rap americano ci ha lasciato

Nipsey Hussle ci ha lasciato ieri sera, sotto una pioggia di proiettili che lo hanno colpito a morte.

Il rapper statunitense si trovava fuori dal suo negozio, il Marathon Clothing Company, quando un uomo si è avvicinato e ha sparato svariati colpi di pistola per poi fuggire a bordo di un veicolo. Nipsey è morto a 33 anni lasciando due figli e la fidanzata. Con lui, nel negozio, sono rimaste colpite altre due persone.

Al momento il ricercato sembra essere un ragazzo di vent’anni e non è ancora chiaro se l’omicidio sia legato agli scontri tra gang. Nipsey Hussle, nato a Los Angeles, aveva in passato fatto parte dei Rollin 60’s Neighborhood Crips, una banda californiana i cui principali nemici sono i Bloods, quelli di cui 6ix9ine è riconosciuto membro.

Pochissime ore prima della sua uccisione, il rapper aveva twittato parole che ci hanno lasciato sconvolti:

Nipsey aveva il rispetto di tutta la scena americana e già nel 2010 faceva parte dell’XXL Freshman Class assieme a Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole e Jay Rock. Nonostante la sua carriera andasse avanti ormai da più di dieci anni, il suo primo album in studio è stato pubblicato proprio lo scorso anno, “Victory Lap“, ed è stato nominato ai Grammy Awards nel 2019 per il titolo di miglior album rap.

Scende di nuovo il dramma, sono decisamente troppi i rapper che negli ultimi anni ci stanno lasciando, che sia per droga o per mano di altri. Moltissimi esponenti della scena hanno espresso il loro rammarico, primi tra tutti Meek Mill e Drake.:

Fuck. My whole energy is just at a low right now hearing this. We just linked for the first time in years and said we were gonna do a new song this summer cause it had been too long. You were having the best run and I was so happy watching from distance fam nobody ever talks down on your name you were a real one to your people and to the rest of us. I’m only doing this here cause I want the world to know I saw you as a man of respect and a don. Rest easy my g.

We are at a great loss today. This hurts. Straight to the point. It’s dangerous to be an MC. Dangerous to be a b-ball player. It’s dangerous to have money. Dangerous To Be A Black Man. So much hatred. We live like our brothers and sisters in third world countries live. Right in America. Decisions we make about our own life be based on decisions cuz we might not live. Its so deep rooted. It’s not a easy fix. Hard to fix anything when kids are still living in poverty. I ain’t shutting up though, Nipsey is a True voice. He will never be silenced. He still is A stand up General for the People who never left his people. He is Loved by the people. Prayers for his family. Let’s keep pushing Truth for The Man. Love You King Nipsey Hussle/ Ermias Asghedom Respectfully, Nasir Jones

Sad to see you go Nip, I’m only finding peace in knowing you are blessed. As you know, I was honored to share in such an amazing year with you musically. 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. “Don’t pair me or compare me, unless the said party is a rare breed…” – self You definitely are a rare breed and I thank you for being genuine to me and in your mission to empower your people…Always love.

Rolled down my window 12 years ago on Crenshaw & Slauson as you handed me your demo & said “Chuck, don’t frisbee my shit homie… give a young nigga a ear”. From that day to letting you open up for me on tour & us going around the world together, creating a bond & watching your growth to today…… Murdered my friend in front of his own store on a Sunday at that !!! After just talking to you on the phone just last night about the Dr. Sebi documentary, family, the kids & how we were both bout to f&$k the summer up with this music, the world loses a true king. A man that was truly about everything he spoke & stood up for all that he believed in. I keep seeing your name in these headlines bro, but it seems unreal to me…. like, I just cannot believe you gone !!!! I love you….. I’m really broken & saddened by the fact they did this to you SMMFH !!!!! I can only imagine what your family is going through right now… This was not how your life on earth was supposed to end !!!!!!!! They don’t even make friends like you no more…… @nipseyhussle 🙏🏾 & in LA, at his own store ?!?!? A store & business he put there for his people ?!?!? Los Angeles, how we let this happen ?!?!?!?!? I’m ashamed of you right now !!!!! Can’t even live out ya whole life in this city no more… this shit right here is just krazy to me !!!!!!!!!!!! #RestInPeaceNip can’t even fuckin believe it’s actually your name attached to all these REST IN PEACE posts !!!!!
