People inside and outside of South Los Angeles are mourning the death of Nipsey Hussle, a visionary entrepreneur and hip-hop artist.

Hussle was shot on Sunday, at age 33, outside the strip mall he was redeveloping in Crenshaw, the neighborhood where he was born in South L.A. It’s the same strip mall where he once sold his unsigned mixtapes from the trunk of his car.

Growing up in South L.A. in the ’90s was traumatic. Hussle was exposed to gang culture, but also to technology and west coast hip hop. He was driven to reinvest in the streets that raised him and rebuild the community, L.A. Times reported.  “We dealt with death, with murder,” he told The Times in 2018. “It was like living in a war zone.”

Hussle was inspiring. He had a vision for a vibrant South L.A. and was working to make it a hub for the country’s best and brightest intellectual thinkers.
