Congresswoman Karen Bass represents the city of Los Angeles and is so passionate about Nipsey Hussle‘s humanitarianism in South L.A. she plans to officially have it recorded into Congress’ permanent record.
Bass represents California’s 37th District and said she will be going to the House Floor next week to “formally enter Nipsey Hussle’s contributions to South Los Angeles into the Congressional Record where it will be a part of United States history forever.”
The 33-year-old hip-hop star was known for his work in the community of South Los Angeles, and was praised during a news conference with city officials.
Nipsey died a day before he was scheduled to meet with Steve Soboroff, President of the L.A. Board of Police Commissioners, to discuss ways to bridge the gap between police and the community, especially with the youth.
As we reported, an online campaign to name the corner of Crenshaw and Slauson, where Nipsey was murdered, to “Nipsey Hussle Way” has gained more than 350,000 signatures.
