Nipsey Hussle’s tragic death has the entire world in mourning.
Even if you weren’t familiar with his music, you respected his hustle.
Nipsey always promoted investment and ownership. He not only rapped about it in his songs, but he would also always talk about it on radio interviews.
He earned the nickname “Neighborhood Nip” because of the positive impact he had on his community. He was helping his people on a local and national level.
Nipsey owned several businesses and was able to employ thousands of people. He purchased the commercial strip where his Marathon Clothing store was and had plans on building a housing complex on top of the stores.
He reportedly gave jobs to over 41,000 people. According to a report, the projected value of his investments made between 2013 and 2019 add up to $210, 413, 500.
