"I am hip-hop. You are hip-hop. We're soldiers in this true art of hip-hop. And you've got to give props. It's who you are, and not what you do that is hip-hop."
March with me now! As a culture, hip-hop belongs to everyone that resonates with it, and anything that touches one of us, affects all of us, that is the power of the culture. The passing of Nipsey Hussle on Sunday touched multitudes of people. Apart from his music, Nipsey was a leader of the community he resided in South Los Angeles, and involved in transforming and spreading the word to combat gang violence. In his honour, thousands of people paid tribute and among those who attended his vigil, DJ Sbu stood as a representative of South African hip-hop, and the entire culture respectively to celebrate the fallen hero.
We still out here at @MarathonTMC in Crenshaw Los Angeles California showing love and paying our out most respects to a fall hero of the community. #RIPNIP #RIPNipsey #RIPNipseyHussle #nipseyhussle pic.twitter.com/1xEscvdn5x— DJSbu (@djsbu) April 2, 2019
Emotions were on everybody's faces. Sadness only is what we were all going through. His community loved him. So many great things this man did for his community. #RIPNIP #RIPNipsey #TheMarathon #RIPNipseyHussle #nipseyhussle #TheMarathonContinues #TheMarathonStillContinues pic.twitter.com/kyJ2ge0223— DJSbu (@djsbu) April 2, 2019
