Nipsey Hussle eerily reflected on life and death just months before he was gunned down in front of his own clothing store.
The “Racks In The Middle” rapper gave a chilling account to “Nessa on Air” back in June, and spoke of leaving this Earth and how to be fulfilled in life when it’s time to say goodbye.
Nipsey, who was a strong influence and advocate for change in the hip-hop community, was asked about fulfillment in life and his own personal growth.
“We look at life like it’s about what you can get from life and I think, you know I read something, I was like ‘that’s not what it is.’ You’re going to always be unfulfilled if you look at life like that,” Nipsey said.
“It’s about knowing you’re going to leave one day and you know when you leave, the only way you’re going to be fulfilled is if you know you gave everything you had and you emptied yourself here and you left it all here because it’s temporary and you got a moment.”
He also dropped knowledge about keeping perspective on what’s truly important in life.
“For me, it’s like I got kids. I got a daughter and a son so, you know, you gotta factor in your kids. You can’t all the way commit yourself to your cause,” Nipsey told Nessa. “You gotta make sure that you’re there for your kids. But outside of that, I want to be in this thing until I’m out of energy, until I got nothing left to contribute.”
One thing Nipsey was sure about — he wanted to be a part of the community and culture for years to come.
“It might not always just be making music and being in front of the mic, but just a part of hip-hop culture and a part of, you know, what this thing has become.”
Nipsey Hussle was gunned down on Sunday afternoon outside of his clothing store in South Los Angeles.
The shooter has been identified as Eric Holder and we’re told the two had personal beef that resulted in violence. Holder, who is also an aspiring rapper, is wanted by LAPD, but has not yet been arrested.
A candlelight vigil was also held on Monday night, where multiple people were injured and hospitalized after a stampede broke out.
