The world has been mourning the passing of the late and great Nipsey Hussle. Since his passing, a lot of celebrities have been speaking out and Detroit rapper, Big Sean, is the latest to do so. The rapper took to his Instagram to share a powerful message with his followers.
Sean spoke on the value of life, and he also indirectly spoke on Nipsey’s alleged killer, Eric Holder, “you know what I wanted to say was to the person who murdered Nipsey and to people like that who take somebody’s life out of impulse or for revenge or whatever the case may be—you’re making a permanent solution to a temporary problem,” Sean stated. “Obviously that’s not how you solve problems. I don’t know if we know the value of a life for real, because when you take somebody’s life, dog—you’re setting back their family. You’re setting the whole lineage back—generations. What I mean by that is, I know for a fact my grandma was working for my mom and for me and my brother. I don’t even have kids—I’m definitely already working for my kids and my kids’ kids. When you take somebody’s life, you’re setting all that back. And for what? For something that could have been communicated better?”
In the 2 minute long video, Sean also addresses his communication skills and how he’s working to improve them. He states, “It takes a lot of effort. I’ve noticed that men, and in Black men, we’re taught to communicate certain ways.” He continues, “We’re taught to be tough, we’re taught to stand tough and get your revenge and retaliate through violence and all that type of shit. But you know, we’re going to keep losing kings!”
