Ermias Joseph Asghedom (August 15, 1985 – March 31, 2019), known professionally as Nipsey Hussle (often stylized as Nipsey Hu$$le), was an American rapper, activist, and entrepreneur.[1]Emerging from the West Coast hip hop scene in the mid-2000s, Hussle independently released his first mixtape, Slauson Boy Volume 1, to moderate local success,[2] which led to him being signed to Cinematic Music Group and Epic Records

His music was motivational. His songs were about just getting up and achieving goals until you’ve found success. People loved him for that.

While he is gone, he’ll never be forgotten. Fans made that clear on Saturday on what would’ve been his 35th birthday.
