    Rapper Nipsey Hussle Shot and Killed…..RIP

    While enjoying the last game of the Elite 8, my son hit me with some news. Nipsey Hussle had been shot 6 times and his condition was unknown. A couple of hours later, the news came out that he had passed away. This was shocking because Nipsey Hussle was always doing things for his community.

On his track Dedication with Kendrick Lamar, Nipsey Hussle said he wanted to be the 2Pac of this generation. In a slight way, not because of his early…

Finally, I’ve had the chance to ride around by myself and actually process the entire album from Fabolous and Jadakiss. If you’re someone that loves lyrics, this is the album for you because both greats are spitting. The featured track, Talk About…
