NIPSEY HUSSLE – HIGHLIGHTING THE RAPPER’S IMPACT & SUCCESS

As the world continues to mourn American rapper Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, who was fatally shot outside his clothing store on Sunday, we shed light on his achievements and the impact he’s been making in his community. Nipsey was known for his success as an independent artist and for his contributions to the community. He started rolling out mix-tapes in 2005 and sold his 2013 mix tape “Crenshaw” for 100 dollars a piece. This move was lauded by JAY-Z who then bought 100 copies. According to CBS, Nipsey prided himself as an independent artist, rejecting deals from record labels that were not on his own terms. After the 2013 mix-tape, he released another “Mailbox Offering” which he sold for 1,000 dollars a piece. He later decided to cut a deal with Atlantic Records that heralded the production of “Victory Lap”, after they agreed to his terms. Outside of his music, he found success as an entrepreneur in his hometown. He opened a STEM center and co-working space where young people could attend classes, bridging the gap between inner city kids and Silicon Valley.
