The passing of Nipsey Hussle hit me in such a powerful way.  I had just recently been introduced to his music through my husband who is a major fan.  I enjoyed his lyrics and music production, but too bad we can no longer listen to the messages he had in store for us.  However, I had no idea how beloved he was by his community and peers.  I felt so sad that he was not able to get this type of attention while he was still alive.
