Rep. Karen Bass Statement On The Murder Of Nipsey Hussle
By Sentinel News Wire
Published April 1, 2019

LOS ANGELES, CA — Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement after Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in front of several stores he owned, including a barber shop, a fish market, and Marathon Clothing. Nipsey hired local members of the community, some struggling to get by, to work in his stores in efforts to give back to South Los Angeles.

“Nipsey loved his community and it showed. He was involved in many programs and projects to give back to South L.A., including Destination Crenshaw, which he worked on with Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson and others to honor our community with celebration and service. Nipsey’s legacy will live on in all of those who continue to uplift, those who continue to inspire, and those who continue to lift as they climb. My heart goes out to his family and the community that loved and admired him.

“Nipsey Hussle’s legacy will live forever in Crenshaw.”

Destination Crenshaw is a 1.3 mile long outdoor art and culture experience celebrating Black Los Angeles which will be built for, by, and in honor of our community, and will celebrate the historical and contemporary contributions of Black L.A. and the Crenshaw community—the largest black community west of the Mississippi River.
