The late Ermias Joseph Asghedom, known professionally as Nipsey Hussle was a visionary, a rapper, an activist, and business mogul. To me, he is the epitome of black excellence. Although his formative years were tumultuous, he used it to prove that no matter what your past looked like you can create a beautiful life. He had such a giving and hopeful demeanor and worked diligently in his community to provide opportunities. He is a personal inspiration of mine and it is my hope that his legacy lives on for years and years to come.
