Dedication = Self- Sacrificing Devotion and Loyalty
I will be the first to admit, that I was a "soft" fan of Nipsy's music. I would listen to his main stream songs, but never took the time to dive deeper into the character of the man behind the music. Unfortunately, it took the tragic incident that occurred on March 31, 2019 for me to do so.
Nipsy Hussle (Ermias Asghedom) was more than a rapper. He inspired those in his neighborhood, and tried to be the change that he wished to see. He gave unselfishly, and continued to build an empire with his "Day 1's" in the very place that seemed hopeless.
Patience = the capacity, habit, or fact of being steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity.
Over the last couple days, I have taken time to watch countless hours of Nipsy interview footage. The amount of knowledge that he possessed was profound. I was utterly amazed, and inspired by some of the things I learned.
Nipsy Hussle has ignited a fire within me that I have yet to experience. I ask myself, daily, "How do I become more abundant in my productivity so that I am able to empower others around me?
I decided to launch a Long Live Nipsy Tee (Men / Women) , and donate a large portion of the profit received to local non-profit organizations that continue to build a stronger sense of togetherness within our community.
Prolific = Marked By Abundant Inventiveness or Productivity
This is only the beginning. Stay tuned as The Marathon Continues......
RIP King Nipsy Hussle
