The Real Ones Is Dying, The Fake Ones Are Lit

I can’t lie this is the first time that I’m going to be speaking on the murder of Nipsey Hussle since it’s happened and it’s for a particular reason.

To be real I wasn’t someone that listened to his music at all, I knew who he was but barely, I had no idea what he stood/stands for. I didn’t want to come out like MANY others and be saying “Damn RIP my brother” or “he was a great artist, gone too soon” cos that would be a lie on my part. If I’m really real, when I heard of his passing I didn’t really care I put my phone down and said “that’s crazy” but still continued with my life.

However since his passing I’ve had to go back and listen to Victory Lap and I’ve really seen why everyone genuinely loves him and how he’s influenced many. Then it got me thinking deeply.

This man, his business, his message and his influence won’t be able to develop any further. OBVIOUSLY his message still lives on but we will never hear another Nipsey album, interview, he will never be able to provide more jobs in his community, write a book etc. Outside of his family losing him, that is the biggest loss in this situation.

An act of senseless pride has cut his journey short and stopped his limitless potential. We see this happening so much in the UK, young life being lost over impulse and anger but those souls that are now not here could’ve went on to do SO MUCH good.

This is a quote that I really love, it tells us to stop self destructive behaviour or acting on something that in the moment feels right but later on will be bad for you. Somethings you can take back and apologise but murder isn’t something that can ever be taken back.

Allegedly a black man did this, a black man has killed one of his own and stopped the development of his own race and even himself. People are quick to kill off each other but not realising that they are potentially stopping growth and improvement in the community or EVEN BIGGER… THE WORLD.

So many businesses could’ve been started by this man in the future or even people could be reborn and change their lives because of Nipsey. Not only has this man caused the death of one man, in the process he is the cause of so many other deaths and in the end what was it even for?

  1. Bro I’m with you on the Nipsey Hustle’s death. I only heard of him when he passed as well and had the same lack of emotion towards the situation. Apart from what I’ve heard on social media and podcasts I honestly don’t know what Nipsey and his music did to benefit the black community or the kind of businesses he was gonna set up but for a lot of people to mourn his loss he must’ve been a real influential figure.

    What’s worst was that another black person took his life. All this black-on-black crime is so damaging for us and doesnt help our issues at all. Sometimes we have to take responsiblity for all the shit happening as well as the way the system is, circumstances etc. As for Nipsey himself, what’s also important for our community is making sure there’s more energy towards keeping his legacy intact than real Nipsey fans vs or “fake” Nipsey fan or who was listening to his music before he died vs who was listening to his music post-humorously. It’s not how a human being should be remembered and makes the discussion around him selfish and about ego. Lets give positive energy and use Nipsey as a reminder about how important life is.

    P.S. I saw this on the 90Babyshow blog and thought they/you copied ezch other but realised you wrote for them as well 😂

    1. Bro you’re honestly right, I’m just seeing people on twitter want to show people that they knew about him for the longest but that’s just taking away from a more important conversation. Thanks for reading, I really love your blog it makes me proper want to see the world. Yeah 😂 it was a joint thing
