A man who was shot alongside Nipsey Hussle and another man outside the rapper's clothing store has been arrested for gang ties to Nipsey.

It was previously reported that Nipsey went to his Marathon Clothing store on March 31 to donate free clothes to Kerry Lathan, an ex-con who was recently released from prison after serving 20 years.

Lathan and his nephew were talking with Nipsey outside the Marathon store when Eric Holder approached them and opened fire.

Lathan, 56, was shot in the back and is paralyzed from the waist down. Even though he is confined to a wheelchair, he was arrested on Friday at a halfway house and charged with associating with a known gang member, Nipsey.

Associating with known gang members violated the terms of Lathan's probation. He is being held at the Men's Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles. Authorities plan to revoke his parole and send him back to prison.

Nipsey was a devout member of the notorious Rolling 60s Crips street gang. He never denounced his gang ties before he was gunned down on March 31. He wore blue - the color associated with the Crips - and he glorified the gang culture in his rap songs.

To balance his image as an unrepentant member of a violent street gang, Nipsey gave back to his community by providing jobs and educational opportunities to young people who grew up in his impoverished neighborhood.

He also purchased a shopping mall and opened several stores and a fast food restaurant. There were reports that the stores are fronts for illegal activity such as money laundering.

But several police raids of his stores failed to turn up any evidence of illegal activity.

    He wore blue - the color associated with the Crips - and he glorified the gang culture in his rap songs.
    ----------------
    He has on red up top. As far as his friend is concerned, it's unfortunate. He just got out and is about to go back just for trying to get clothes.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    So the paralyzed guy is well enough to be arrested 2 weeks after being shot?

  • dontgetblocked

    Yet they lined the screens crying and hollering for a known and devoted Crips gang member. It's times like these that I'm thankful for authorities for reminding us that gang member are CRIMINALS. There are no good gangs. They rape, rob, and destroy their hoods. I have no respect for anyone associated with a gang including Lauren London. Yeah... I said it bish!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Was he already paralyzed? Seems a little early to be out of the hospital.

  • dblogged

    I thought it was against the code to wear red

  • Parent

    The system is so effed up!!! But he violated his parole. I believe him getting shot was a violation.

  • dontgetblocked

    Think about it. Had this man simply gone home and obeyed his parole rules, Nipsey would be alive. He would be able to walk and not be back in prison. But noooooo! He needed some flashy clothes. Nyggas!

  • dontgetblocked

    He was standing and walking when he was shot.

  • Parent

    I notice you been getting a lot of heat for your comments on this situation but I respect your opinion. We all arent going to agree all the time however, you do make some valid points.

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm not understanding why everyone is ignoring the fact that he was a gang member. When did society find this acceptable?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    W0w...released from prison just to be in another type of prison.

  • Parent

    I think because of the way he spoke and tried to better his community. They see him as hood prophet.

  • dontgetblocked

    Look. We're law abiding citizens and we know that you can't associate with other felons while on parole. The store was full of felons and Nipsey was a proud gang member.

  • dontgetblocked

    Actually, he's going back to prison in worse shape.

  • Parent

    This could have been avoided. When I first heard about his homeboy I immediately thought the hit was for him being fresh out the pen and all.

  • currvalicious

    So true.

  • Parent

    Hate it or love it, you're absolutely right

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm really trying to understand. Was he really making his community better or was he using his money to buy up property for the gang he represented? How can you help a community when you are part of the problem...the problem is the gangs.

  • currvalicious

    Getting shot is not a violation. Associating w/gang members (Nipsey) is what violated him.

  • Harley

    The police are the biggest gang... the government a bigger gang... the gangs in the US spawned from the black panther party and were for the community. These gangs were infiltrated just like the panthers to create friction and help to depopulate abs control those of color. No one is glamorizing gangs except those who fixate on the mob people are commending this man for the good he has done and the message of growth and independence as well as going back to rebuild the community

  • Harley

    Are we ignoring the fact the police are a gang and the government too?

  • Panther Charleston

    You! ? And so true too.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    All that man wanted was some damn new clothes to go see his family in, and because of one foolish individual is now paralyzed and gone back to jail.

  • dontgetblocked

    But he represented the very thing that's destroying the community..GANGS!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I knew this would happen as soon as Nipsey was in the ground. This Nipsey frenzy was media driven because it was ratings gold. Now that the ratings are dying down, the media will turn on him.

  • currvalicious

    If that's the case, he should be able to tell what really happened w/that cave demon & why he shot them. B/c nothing's adding up or making sense.

  • dontgetblocked

    Really. I don't think it's the same as a bunch of hoodlums terrorizing their own people.

  • dontgetblocked

    Hmmm. We need to educate ourselves as a people.

  • Shamwow

    Sad smh

  • Yup, I said it

    I whole heartedly agree, but this makes so much sense why terms of probation forbid any contact with criminals and gangs. Its actually for their own protection. People are so careless and resentful of any type of displine that they see it as a punishment. If this man had of followed the terms of his probation and just went to Wal-Mart or "City Trends" he would be able to walk today.

  • dontgetblocked

    His family wouldn't have cared what he was wearing. Now look at what happened.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It was. But then cops started arresting people who wore all blue or all red. So gang members switched the colors up.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Yep!
    Now what?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It's called mob mentality or herd mentality. People are easily influenced to go along with their peers. Most of the people crying over Nipsey had never heard of him before he was shot.

  • MorenaDelSur

    That’s how it happens every time (Aretha, Prince, Michael, etc. )

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He's the one whose back was turned when Holder walked up and shot them. That's why he couldn't move or get up when he hit the ground.

  • MorenaDelSur

    Damn. Cold world.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's the wrong person. Lathan was the first one to fall in front of Nipsey. He was lying on the ground and couldn't move.

  • dontgetblocked

    I have that feeling too. I've only seen him on your blog with Lauren. The comments were full of negative statements about him. When did he become a neighborhood hero?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The Crips and Bloods used to wear blue and red respectively. They stopped when the cops targeted them by their colors.

  • brooklyn23

    I was just gonna say the cops are gangs

  • tintin

    The words used in this post.....the disrespect....the comments...

    Imma be quiet
    R.i.p NiP

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Because social media magnifies everything larger than life.

  • dontgetblocked

    So he was already paralyzed? Why didn't he just go home to his mama? Lordt!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    A lot worse. And his medical needs could be very expensive to the taxpayers.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He was paralyzed after he got shot.

  • brooklyn23

    It's worse because cops are suppose to uphold the law not break it themselves. You're bugging the govt, law authority are just as bad or worse than crips and bloods

  • dontgetblocked

    Okay. Just too much drama!

  • dontgetblocked

    I can't argue with that!

  • brooklyn23

    When phrased like this, that gave me the chills

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Nipsey got a better send off than Jesus - all thanks to social media.

  • KcoolMuziq

    The media NEVER turned on Prince(r.i.p.) after he passed.
    I will FOREVER respect his reputation & legacy.

  • jujumanji

    Harsh but true

  • dontgetblocked

    There will be more arrests. The FBI and undercover agents were all over that funeral. I also want to know who is paying for Christopher Darden to represent Eric Holder? The government? Because he's a snitch. What did Nipsey know that made Eric feel like he had to shoot him? Nobody's talking about the shooter/informant? The media has been directed to this over the top service and Kodak Black. Why? There's much more to this story!!

  • Victorious82

    So are you apart of the media that’s turning on him Auntie? Because it kinda sounds like it by the way this post reads.

  • dontgetblocked

    Don't go off again...but Prince was a druggie according to the media.

  • KcoolMuziq

    That "man" the killer I WILL NOT honor him to say his name would have found Nipsey that day or after.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    The police are those same hoodlums you speak of. They will plant drugs, steal money and sale drugs to the very same people you are so careless to put down. They even glorify their so call "Blue" gang relations.

    The Black Panthers was considered to be a gang and they sold drugs, tobbed or even killed other black "gang" members.

    This what make you a hypocrite, because whether view all "gang" members as bad people, when some becomes a member of a gang so they have protection from the police "Blue" gang members.

  • dontgetblocked

    I hate to say it but he seems like a hired assassin. Like I said in another post, Who is paying for Christopher Darden to represent him? The government?

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Please take your words and use them...educate yourself on why gangs was formed in LA before speaking.

    TY

  • sherri2016

    Always trying to keep a black man down no matter if their trying to change of not I saw a news story about a black man saving a families life after a car accident only they never mentioned his name just called him an ex con he just saved lives and your calling him an ex con Nipsey changed his life and changed lives but they are still calling him a gang member

  • DeeFromLA

    So the victim gets arrested? God please let the truth about what really went down come out. How does the get away driver get set free, but the victim of an attempted murder gets arrested after being paralyzed. Shameful

  • ALLMINE?

    Naw. Darden is doing it for press

  • KcoolMuziq

    But was cleared up when it was found to be an accidental overdose of Fentnyl. Which turned out to be an unknown epidemic that happened to many afterwards.

  • lovelygamour

    i have always felt _just a guy feeling from living street life- that the man who shot nipsey was probably scared or felt he was dead anyway.

    the cops are punishing this guy to send some sort of message or they think his life is endangered or some cop wants press but i dont believe the last one.

    this arrest makes me think about "the game" he keeps popping up trying to be seen as a street force. i wonder what does he have to do with this. i wouldnt be surprised if he gets arrest next or he is a snitch.

  • Ni Ni

    Nipsey was a devout member of the notorious Rolling 60s Crips street gang. He never denounced his gang ties....
    _________________
    How many times have you wrote this, yet people still hollering he wasn't in a gang.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    That's not actually true, because you can't just wear red if you're not a Blood same as a Crip. Those who switch their colors are respected by both sides and are given permission to do so. It isn't that simple to wear red if you're a Crip.

    Nipsey was respected by all the mutliple culture "gang" members in LA. He could even wear yellow and brown or even green. Please stop spreading this uneducated narrative to your blog members who doesn't know the education or history.

    TY

  • lovelygamour

    they believed the getaway driver but dont believe lathan. maybe, lathan didnt know nipsey was a felon. i think they arrested this man for his safety or something.

  • justlooking

    Movie and TV deals

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I reported the news. I'm not turning on him. I was honest about not being a fan of his. I thought his music was average and I didn't understand all the hoopla. But now I understand it was all media driven for clicks and views.

  • A D N

    My goodness Sandra!

  • lovelygamour

    just like at mob funerals. they let them have them so they can see who still alive, who sits where, and who is feuding. at nipsey funeral the feds was also keeping track of who stayed away. the bloods seem like they are changing the guard. I think whoever got money needs to move out and give up their spot.

  • A D N

    You are speaking in hindsight and neglecting to understand that the man who shot him is the guilty one.

  • Li-Wright

    I'm more interested in his will; did he have one?

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Nipsey was doing something out of love from his heart. You're so negative. You find something negative to say about anyone. It's an unfortunate outcome in this situation, but don't overlook Nipsey good deed to a friend.

    No one could predict this was going happen.

  • A D N

    His situation had nothing to do what his family wanted to see him in. Goodness! He was/is the victim.

  • dblogged

    ?

  • A D N

    Good question.

  • Ni Ni

    To line their pockets first and foremost and make their people dependent on them only.

    I've been reading he didn't even like black women.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    You're ignorant. I hate using that word to describe people, but in this case, you finally get to say...I told you so, but you want be able take away Nipsey' good deeds and his accomplishments.

  • lovelygamour

    I dont think its the media I think it was regular people driven. in an effort to beat the next person for a "viral quote" everybody spoke on nipsey. these same people was calling him lame a few months ago. his real fans was drowned out. I think he was still deep in gang activity and he shouldve stepped aside.

  • pure_rachet

    Lathan is the felon. Nip was a know gang member and ex cons aren't allowed to associate with gang members.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    True story: I saw Nipsey inside Saks 5th Avenue in Atlanta 2 weeks before he died. He was wearing a bright neon yellow hoodie. He was leaning on the wall next to Chanel. He looked bored out of his mind while waiting for Lauren to finish shopping.

  • A D N

    We can apply that hindsight to everything in life...not just this situation. If I haven't did this...that wouldn't have happened. If we all knew what would have in the next hour, we all would change a lot of the decisions we make.

  • lovelygamour

    that funeral was suspicious. either it was suppose to bring people together or send a message.

  • Victorious82

    There’s very few who aren’t in a gang, gang affiliated or gang adjacent in LA. You either saying cuz or blood. Even the squarist of square is saying it. We don’t care if Nipsey was in a gang. His death brought hoods together yesterday that been beefing for decades. Can we focus on that a bit? Bloods, crips and eses all out together. That’s a first.

  • SouthsideServesHerWell

    Sandra did you see where Reggie Bush has started a go fund me account asking folks to donate for Nipsey two children. He said Lauren was okay with it because the money is going into a trust fund for his daughter and son. IDK if Nipsey had any liquid money when he died. ?????

  • pure_rachet

    I thought it was over the top and I work near the Staples Center. I stayed far away from all the shenanigans. Plus I'm also not a fan.

  • lovelygamour

    in all the hoopla I missed that part. i didnt know nipsey was a felon and maybe the man didnt either. but if he wouldve went some place new he would still be healthy. thats so sad.

  • Yup, I said it

    No, I speaking in the sense of if he had followed his probation he would not have been involved in that situation. Its just a simple cause and effect relationship. This is why people religiously make bad decisione today. They fail to acknowledge that cause and effect will allows exist its a rule of nature. Gangs are not yacht clubs. Join the military expect to go to war. You join a gang expect a life of violence. See how that works?

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Omg to be paralyzed to see your friend murdered to be sent back to jail terrible. Rest Nipsey. Just sad...

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    ???

  • pure_rachet

    He wasn't even out of jail for a week! Fools don't follow the law or use common sense! I totally agree. That's why I stayed far away from everything just in case something went down.

  • Ni Ni

    Woo hoo!!!????

  • what?why

    So once again Tina Knowles Lawson makes a fool out of herself by trying to be "hip" and gain PR.

  • GAPeach

    OK, so what does what "they used to do" have to do with anything?

  • Ni Ni

    What she do?

  • lovelygamour

    thats good cause too many regular people was getting attacked by gangbangers.

  • pure_rachet

    Also what does a 56 year old man have any business hanging out with a 20 something dude? Lathan was an OG. Couldn't wait to get back to that life.

  • lovelygamour

    hopefully they send him out of state. some nut may try to shoot him again.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Trust. It was media driven to get clicks and views from social media. Every news outlet posts links on Twitter.com. I got a lot of views on my Nipsey posts. That's how I know the news media elevated Nipsey to Jesus status for clicks and views.

  • what?why

    Maybe pro bono

  • dontgetblocked

    But he's not getting press. He's not doing interviews. There's something going on here. Something ain't right.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Those ex felons who served their time was given a second chance to better their life. God knows this cold world, who has turned their backs on them, wouldn't do it. He gave them another chance to survive, so they don't have to go back to their old ways, that would land them back behind bars and become slaves to the private owners of the prisons...Shawshank Redemption ring a bell.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A lot of people weren't fans of his. Most people never heard of him until March 31. He was not a household name like Tupac and Biggie. People got caught up in the herd mentality on social media. It's a powerful phenomenon.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That was the combined power of the news media elevating him to god status for clicks and views.

  • Lainy Damone

    But #45 can hang out with the Russians. Something is fishy about the story

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    He had a living trust and life insurance.

  • A D N

    He made a decision to go to the store and get some clothing to wear to see his family. Someone came shot him, kill another, and somehow it's his fault? There is only one person who caused all of this...ONE, and the paralyzed guy is not it! Do not hold anyone liable for the ill actions of others. *IF my child wasn't sick, when I drove to the store to get medicine, I wouldn't have had an accident by hitting someone with my car*. (The sick child is not the reason for the accident...negligence on my behalf is). If, if, if, if, if..... IF you all are so able to use so much wisdom and foresight to avoid potential pitfalls unforeseen, then you should know that all the best prejudgment one has, nothing is inevitable if it was meant to be. Be wise because you all are speaking from hindsight.

  • Lainy Damone

    Agree all they mention is that words were said and Holder didn't like them. Then he wont make it in prison

  • ALLMINE?

    I don't think the trial started yet

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    I don't think he will go back to prison, the DA is working on getting these charges drop. He is in jail, but will see the Judge and be release on ROR.

    Be patience, this is just a distraction to the real case at hand.

  • SouthsideServesHerWell

    So why Reggie Bush asking regular ppl to donate money?

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Nipsey wasn't a felon, he was a gang affiliate.

  • A D N

    Don't go to Goodwill stores or many companies because felons are hired. Companies get paid to hire felons...

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Nipsey was a new millionaire, he had business opportunities on the table, funding is tied up in that. He had money going to that before his untimely death.

    I hope that answers your question.

  • Yup, I said it

    I'm not going to read all that. Nonesense. Fact is the person who shot him was probably gang too. This dude have had a green light on him. He was in the pen. He may have been snitching who knows. Point is just like the mob. That life is deadly you might as well sign up for the military and go to war.The person who shot him wanted him dead, not paralyzed. Lets use this as a lesson for people to follow the their probabtion rules.

  • chan chan

    I was waiting for this to happen.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Thank you for seeing this for what it is.

    May God continue to bless you with divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

  • pure_rachet

    Yes, unfortunately I was familiar with his music through no fault of my own. All his songs sound the same. Boring. I hate how so-called fans want to go to his memorial mainly to see celebs and post on social media.

  • dontgetblocked

    You get the publicity started right away...while the story is hot. There is silence for a reason.

  • Anyway

    I agree with you there's more to this story.

  • jade

    Nipsey might have been in a gang, but I truly believe his altruistic side was who he really was. Most of these dudes maintain the gang image just to appear cool and what not. He was not out there terrorizing the community. This whole situation is just a pity.

  • lovelygamour

    i wish these gangbangers would pick something hard to find and expensive. cause picking primary colors is wrong and lazy.

  • DeeFromLA

    Yep, fishy AF

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He didn't have any insurance? Once his properties are liquidated (sold off), the money will go into a fund for his children and the executor of his estate, probably his mother.

  • dontgetblocked

    So he was broke which makes sense. Where would he get money from? We know Lauren barely works.

  • lovelygamour

    I started to get that same feeling. its almost like the gang was using him to buy up property. which as long as they was fair wouldnt be a problem. cause if foreigners buy it they are going to kick out the poor anyway.

  • dontgetblocked

    He broke parole. How would the charges be dropped?

  • Scromes1212

    I'm sure he did but he wasn't rich like that. He was rented that store they had until recently. Plus it wasn't like he was making millions off his music. He just put out his first official album after years of mixtapes

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Here's your gang...right here:
    "60 large companies managed to escape 2018 taxes under Trump's new plan. Many of those corporations actually received tax rebates totaling $4.3 billion.
    The businesses include: Amazon, Netflix, Chevron, Delta Airlines, JetBlue Airways, IBM, General Motors, Goodyear, Eli Lilly and United States Steel.

    The result is a $20.7 billion budget hole that is adding to America's federal debt."

  • Scromes1212

    Just because you violate doesn't mean they automatically charge you. It's really there discretion

  • Marla

    Sandra,
    I have to disagree. I almost always agree with you and I’m usually very cynical when it comes to the media but I really think Nipsey Hussle’s untimely passing is different. Ironically, I found out while reading your blog. I had never heard of him. I’m over 40 and really haven’t been into rap since my 20’s.

    But that evening I started reading about him online and I almost felt as if a close friend had passed away. He had such a kind spirit and tried to give back. I agree with Lebrun James. This is one of the greatest national tragedies ever. I have only shed tears over three major celebrities: Prncess Diana, Prince, Michael Jackson (more for my childhood than him) and now Nipsey Hussle.

  • lovelygamour

    shieriff joe kept a kid in jail for years because he wanted some sympathy. so he had his cops fake a shootingbomb attempt on his life and asked the kid to be quiet and he would just arrest him and let him go. well joe kept that kid in jail for i believe years. the cops bought the materials.

  • A D N

    I didn't know Nipsey's music but have heard of him through other celebrities acknowledging how he contributed to his community. One thing many fail to see is what Nipsey was teaching...invest your money instead of always spending it. I admire the young man more after I saw his interview on the Breakfast Club. I saw him to be more than a gang affiliate but a community revitalizer, a giver of 2nd chances, a father to his children and lover to his woman. I admire the idea that he was self taught to learn when what was hidden from us. He was an avid reader/listener always seeing knowledge to build himself, his dynasty and others. So yes, his death was impactful because he impacted so many people who loved him and benefitted from what he gave and learned. I'm not a fan but I do like what he represented and gave, to the point of his life to see a change.

  • dontgetblocked

    These companies also provide tens of thousands of jobs, boost the economy, enrich the communities where they have facilities. They actually deserve deep tax cuts especially when they keep jobs in America. We have to look at the big picture.

  • Scromes1212

    Nipsey was a good brother but this was definitely driven by social media and news outlets. I been a fan since his second mixtape and people would be clueless when I brought his name up smh now everybody was a fan

  • lovelygamour

    especially these gangs now. they simply give all the money to the top and everyone else is poor.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    The colors separated them and the streets they hung out on. The colors is what they used to bring them together as a family. Besides, the color wasn't the problem, it was what the picture/narrative the police was painting them as.

  • Cricket404

    Truth, in my opinion, black folks have power in the media and pushed the agenda. Karen Civil is like Kim Fox, powerful woman with ties to many worlds. Looking at his older daughters Rolling 60's gangbanging mother Instagram, she is a doppelganger for Lauren. Lauren upgraded him.

  • dontgetblocked

    The sad thing is other races sat back and laughed. Another black man killed by a black man...and it was gang affiliated. It's quite embarrassing that gang members are adored in our community.

  • lovelygamour

    sounds like reggie just wants some press but dont want to reach in his pocket. the gang should do a collection.

  • cherrypie

    So after being released after 20 years, he was shot, friend was shot and killed, paralyzed and sent back to prison!! Wow.... ?

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Lol, he probably wasn't bored, just impatience. My understanding he dosen't like idling his time in one place for a long time. He probably was thinking of new ideas or innovative ways to create new business ventures. He was a derp thinker.

  • A D N

    His connections to big name celebrities and how they spoke out in his death made Nipsey more known. Death has a way of bringing things to the forefront...like a funeral. People gather quicker for a funeral than a family get together

  • dontgetblocked

    You shouldn't believe everything you read. How does a person get into a gang? What does a person do in a gang? Why wouldn't a person leave a gang? You need to google some videos of him fighting and learn about his other side.

  • SouthsideServesHerWell

    IDK know if he had insurance or not, but Reggie is trying to raise $100,000 for the kids. He should give it to them or ask their rich friends instead of asking regular folks to donate their hard earned money.

  • lovelygamour

    i think thats why everyone went so hard because they saw a chance at peace. fighting just to make a few at the top rich is not what a gang suppose to be.

  • A D N

    You should read all of that. But in short... Get some wisdom instead of relying on hindsight.

  • SouthsideServesHerWell

    Reggie really should donate the money or ask their rich friends to contribute. He is asking regular ppl to donate. He trying to raise $100,000.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    They're in denial.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The funeral cost more than $100,000. Something's not right.

    I told my husband gang membership just went up behind this. Lauren last words on the podium showed she is one too.

    Can't front the way she said it rubbed me the wrong way. She just finished saying something sweet about him then says "the Marathon continues" in a very aggressive and nasty demeanor.

  • lovelygamour

    instead of nipsey tattoos they couldve donated that money. if each one gave 10k that would cover it. i am not donating a dime because so many rich people are using nipsey for press. let "the game" give money. he been running around on social media for days.

  • the guest

    I will not hear any negativity against Nipsey’s name. This family has my heart on their side for always. I am proud of his contributions and will always focus on that.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    This is why i call you ignorant, this man was already a millionaire in his mid twenties, he was an artist for a long time. He sold 1000 cd's at 100 dollars a cd. Jay Z purchased 10 of them. He had properties in Atlanta, he was investing in real estate and he was renting the Marathon store spot and his restaurant (burger joint), before purchasing the entire stripe mall. He was in the process of purchasing two stripe mall in the same area.

    Google could have helped you with this simple information or better yet how about you listen to his interviews on YouTube.

  • Yup, I said it

    Gotcha, and history always repeats itself and “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results." You just keep supporting ganglife by blaming the other gang member and you will keep mourning the tragic violent deaths of gang members. Peace.

  • lovelygamour

    I wonder did nipsey let them know he was beefing with someone. that man was in jail for 20 years i consider him innocent. how was he suppose to know nipsey was a felon.

  • Cricket404

    He was Eritrean and that helped elevate him in a town full of Louisiana and Texas misfits. I also think his mother is a nut case....

  • Yup, I said it

    Being in prison for 20 yrs is probably why he was able to live to the ripe age of 56. I don't see alot of OG's because they typically don't live that long if they out in the streets banging. The only OG' s I have seen all did long prison stints like Tookie.

  • Cricket404

    Lauren wanted a rough neck.

  • dontgetblocked

    Okay. If you say so.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The way she was laughing on that stage - like one of her homeboys died. I always say it's a bad sign when a man lets a woman lead him. Nipsey was following Lauren around Saks for an hour, like he was her son.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    The DA brings the charges, he was arrested, charges are pending. They will be dropped due his unfortunate situation.

    You just want to be right about this situation, yet you're playing both sides of the coin. You're snake in real life, I can tell.

  • dontgetblocked

    Preach. Now he's old azz is going to be rolling around the prison in a wheelchair. Why did he get 20 years anyway. Murder?

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

  • dontgetblocked

    So this Kerry Lathan was released from prison after serving 20 years for MURDER! Don't feel sorry for him. Feel sorry for the family of the person he murdered. This is the type of person Nipsey associated with...and you wonder why he died a violent death. Wake up people!

  • dontgetblocked

    He was in jail for murder. Innocent is not the word to describe him.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It depends on the extent of internal damage when he was shot.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I agree with many of the comments! We can’t allow the media to write the narrative on Nipsey’s life! CHRISTOPHER DARDEN, QUIT!

    THE DIVIDENDS from that service was amazing and powerful ! It was a moment of “Tribalism” and it makes “people” nervous! MOM NOW HAS A PLATFORM, PEOPLE LISTENED! The work will continue!

    No, the killings (violence) won’t stop, no more than the opioid addiction, and the overall white drug epidemic will cease!

    MANY OF US BLACK FOLKS ARE WOKE, AND SEE THE BS! We won’t talk “gangstas” be it in the White House, CIA, Wall Street, or The Mafia!

  • Vonn

    Reggie donated 10k to the kids.

  • SouthsideServesHerWell

    He could have donated the whole $100K it was his idea.

  • Marla

    I see your point and I understand that he was in a gang, but that doesn’t mean he was a bad person before he passed away. People are complicated. It’s not always so easy to put someone in one category: Good, bad... I really didn’t know him, but I know he didn’t deserve what happened to him.

  • Patricia

    being most folks leave prison with no other alternatives but to return to their old stomping grounds, it is impossible for them to not be associated with their old thug friends and family.
    its a great and reasonable idea in theory, but, not feasible in a felon/ex cons real life circumstances. i guess the game is not to get caught up with them when some mess pops off.

  • Elevated Soul

    I too believe more arrests will be coming...

    I believe "Cowboy" who say he is a business partner of Nipsey's @ Marathon was involved.I believe Eric Holder may be the "fall" guy but he is also being protected for now by the government....It's no coincidence that Christopher Darden is involved in this case.

    Nipsey was a Rolling 60's crip gang member. Gangs often have that funny money flow that from drugs/prostitution and they need their money to be "washed", so it would not shock me if they used Nipsey's businesses to wash money with or without his knowledge but something is definitely going down.

  • Malificent

    That’s messed up man. He just lost his homey who was trying to help him out.

    lol. Anytime a street guy opens any store, I assume it's a front for what they really do. When I see rappers fly private from Miami to South Beach (I'm being silly), I assume its because they're moving weight.

    All I can say is WOW to ole boy possibly getting his probation revoked weeks after being released, as if getting shot in the a**/paralyzed aren't enough. Gotta love justice.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Heck no.

  • dontgetblocked

    How much does a strip mall in the middle of the hood cost? I could have bought it.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I get most of your comments and can see your POV. I think the streets and far too many black people do like to forget why the person went away in the first place. Similarly, media wants you to all but forget Nipsey was in a gang. I wondered how many moms had to wear a black dress because of his actions years prior???

    If any. IDK.

  • Cricket404

    I read The Autobiography of a L.A. Gang Member by Sanyika Shakur when I was 21, it opened my eyes and I moved TF out of L.A. when I had my son.

    They'll be okay as long as I have a job to keep them out of these gang infested neighborhoods so they can at least live and perhaps go to college.

  • dontgetblocked

    He was washing money and it was growing to a new level with him "buying" up property. I believe several gangs were involved. A message was sent with the murder happening the day before the gangs met with the city. The shooter's driver was released...suspicious! Darden representing the shooter who sits quietly in a cell while everyone attacks Kodak and focuses on this over the top funeral for a man most of us really never heard of. Yeah, something is going on!!

He was a gang member who died at the hands of another gang member. And don't get me started about his relationship with Lauren talmbout relationship goals GTFOHWTBS, he was f*cking both her and his other baby mama at the same time.

    Re: Nipsey wasn't out gangbanging

    Do you have the same opinion of someone who is a KKK member, but not actively burning crosses & negroes?

    Wake up & quit falling for the banana in the tailpipe: I'm doing something for the community to keep them quiet, meanwhile me & my boys can get this ?& they continue to rape, rob, & murder whenever they want. I really don't care, I'm (insert gang name) for life my nword?.

    The only reason a gang member is interested in investing in a community is so that he & the gang can control it as well as the people in the community.

  • Ni Ni

    He did not turn his life around if he was still in a gang.

    If he wasnt out gangbanging, then he was calling the shots. He was a gang member when he died.

  • T Willis

    You’d think lol... especially with the constant blog posts and public spectacle

  • Yup, I said it

    Like in New Jack City. Nino Brown handing out turkeys to the poor, in return the community lets him take over apartments buildings and shoot up people's weddings and they act like he's some type of community savior.

  • T Willis

    Huh? Am I missing something? Nipsey open a clothing store, donated money to his community, and mentored some kids. Did he something additional? Because I know a few football players who’ve done what Nipsey has done - and did it without gang affiliated ties. So... unless there’s more to his “legacy” it’s really not that deep.

  • T Willis

    Lol @ the gang should do a collection ?... Lauren gonna be just like (yt actress) Michelle Williams. 20 years from now milking the death of her baby daddy (Heath Ledger - another public spectacle that lasted too dayum long)

  • T Willis

    I think it’s tooo premature to say Nipsey brought gangs together. Let’s wait until after the summer and see the body count. This feeling of mourning is not going to make it to August. I’m betting by July we’ll see more gang activity than the last 5 years.

  • T Willis

    Those gangs were developed to protect black ppl against the cops. Then the cops infiltrated it and turned it into a vio!3nt version of itself by attacking its own community. What it was (black panthers etc) is not what it currently is. We have to separate the two.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    So, lenme get this straight. He was an "active" Crip but wore red and hung out with both and didnt participate in any illegal activites, and police raided his stores because they expected to find that he was laundering money and he wasn't.

We all know Nip wasn't a saint, but it's called "Rest In Peace" for a reason. I believe once you die / transcend your sins die /transcend with you, so you and some other people should let GOD and the universe deal with his descrections. At this point, (and please understand I am just an ole country girl from North Carolina; I don't know a DAMN THING about gang life), it's just be mean now. Let the dead /transcend, be EXACTLY that! Because your words and opinions cannot hurt him...he is gone, but who they do hurt is his children, and his daughter and the child Lauren had with Lil Wayne are old enough to see and understand. People can say WHATEVER they want to say about us souhtherners being fake and phony, MOST of the time, it's not that we are fake and phony, it's just that for most of us, we have been taugh to have "couth".

    Exactly! 2 Corinthians 6:17 says, "Come out from among them and be separate." That's what Nipsey needed to do, separate himself completely from gang culture. He died a violent death because he hung out with violent people. 1+1 = 2 every time.

  • CeCe

    Exactly. If you turn your life around then you denounce being in the gang and have nothing at all to do with it. You don't even associate with anyone who is actively in a gang once you completely turn your life around. He had one leg in and one leg out.

    Agree 100%. I've had the same conversation. Gangs are not known for delivering flowers and hand written thank you cards. Violence begets violence and that's what happened that day. If he listened, he would not be in a wheelchair. There's a mentality that comes with gang life that needs to be broken. You are not invincible and sowing and reaping are as real as cause and effect.

  • CeCe

    If he wasn't there, he would not have got shot. What part of stay away from felons didn't he understand? He broke the rules of his probation and now has to live with the hard consequence.

    Let me make this simple for you . My fiancée wants to marry me . I have doubts . I’m the woman . It’s not always the man .

    That’s why I said that it’s “ life” .
    Everything isn’t always black and white . Sometimes people realize they have more work to do within their selves and a lot of times it’s after children are involved . You can say could’ve ‘ would’ve and should’ve but it’s not always black and white

  • jade

    None of us know their personal relationship, but I believe Lauren would have preferred to be his wife rather than just a girlfriend. She wore that ring on her ring finger (leading many to believe that they were secretly married) and even referred to him as her husband when she was running in the hospital. Now in his death, Lauren has no claim to anything. His estate goes to his children and parents. She really has no say in how things are divided up. Some of the perks of being married—so you protect yourself in unfortunate events like this, especially if you are with that person for years and helping them build in one form or another.

    Not too many women would want to be laying up with a man for five plus years, playing house, having his kids, taking care of the home front and supporting him and not want to provide themselves some protection by getting married. Some women just settle for what they think is the most they’ll get from the dude. Lauren, unfortunately, may have been one of those women.

  • leapyearpisces

    I hope you have the same feeling when ALL YOU talk about is how any woman over the age of 18 is "old", and "ran through", and "disposable". Now I am a sweet, and chill type of chick, but this is not a fight you want to fight, not with me, because I don't have to use curse words to cuss you out, and I don't resort to childish banter by calling you ugly and what not;, I know how to stay on topic within a debate. You, and a lot of others, just need to come clean and admit that at the end of the day, that SOME OF YOU ALL, are just plain ole JEALOUS about how this man has been given so much love...from all OVER THE WORLD...and how AWFUL that you would even type the name Hitler in association with this man. That's really sad. I come from a HUMBLE, a'and sincere place, when I say, some of yall need to climb off of your high horses.....y'all need to let this be...just let it be......

    Great job Sandra in finding a picture of Nipsey wearing red while writing this post of him being a devout Rolling 60's member. They want the paralyzed friend to testify and not fall back on "no snitching" Sad tactic when the city just honored Nipsey.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You are not looking at the logic of the situation...he represented a extremely violent gang that’s Known for murder and used a store and a few jobs as shitck to let the youths know you can be gangster and help people....!?

  • Anji

    I was born in an upper class family and earned my doctorate, having entered college at age 12. I still rep my hood (Piru St) and established foundations to offer options and alternatives to youth. I am there for OGs emancipated from prison and they have much to offer as they change their lives to benefit others. My bro was a thug and sits in the Pentagon after graduating Harvard. We don't support violence excepting self-defense, but we don't deny our former communities either. Does working to uplift as gang-affiliated make me unfit for society? Hayle no....it makes me compassionate and loyal to my race. Activism is more effective if you stay with the people you serve and maintain ties to a group that was birthed to protect me from KKK youth gangs in Compton. I am Godly, spiritual and look down on no man. I'm not one to throw rocks without helping to patch wounds. #notsittingonmyazz

  • Vonda K

    Thank you.
    All I see in these blogs and Instagram is southern rappers buying overpriced cars, gaudy jewelry and up in clubs.
    Nipsey wasn’t perfect but it appeared he was trying to use his influence to bring about a change.
    I’m sad because another black man gone before reaching his potential.

  • Bonita

    Well I am. And I'll be the only commenter on this site to say that this entire thing was a hoax. I've been waiting for things to die down so I could speak on this. From the poor acting by the crisis actors, to the fake shooting itself, to the lack of blood on the fake bodies as well as the hands of the paramedic actors wearing white gloves who who did a terrible job of pretending to give CPR. Everybody from the police to Lauren London herself, to Nipseys family, and all these rappers were all in on it. Yeah I said it. They're all sick, and they're all part of the game. The news never even referred to the young man's real name in all of their reporting. They always referred to him as Nipsey Hussle, who was a character. That's not normal reporting. When legitimate deaths are reported, they always reference the person's real name in addition to their alter ego.This fake production simply killed off the character, not the man, Ermias Asghedom. This was targeted toward a specific audience that the powers that be knows doesn't watch CNN, MSNBC, or FOX News in order to manipulate emotions, cause that's what they get off on. TMZ is controlled ops, and Harvey Levin is an agent. That's why they were the only source to initially report this debacle. And were always the source with the latest updates, and all the videos that surfaced. It was controlled! Ermias Asghedom is now a 33rd degree mason, who has been given a new identity, and will now live in disguise with the likes of Prince, 2 Pac, Michael Jackson, etc. Whenever Lauren London mysteriously goes out of the country with her kid, you best believe she's visiting Ermias Asghedom. So for all of those sheeple who are going to come at my throat for this, you should be happy that the guy is actually alive, but mad at the sicko industry for sucking all of your life energy that you've been releasing to these Satanists through your grief and sadness.

  • UsuallyItsBusiness25

    That’s a great question . I’m very upfront with my fiancé about how I feel. Brutally honest.

    Depression is crippling . Just like someone can have the same job as a routine . A woman can pop a (children) and not have a future mapped out . Just in the moment. Stupidly not using protection and believe me ...it’s her fault . That’s how I was . I came from a unhealthy family and I had no clue they were that way . I’m talking true chaos. I was so numb that men became my “out” . I jumped right into a long term relationship at 14-18 . Then another at 18-current .
    I was so focused on doing the bare minimum to not be like who was around. I recreated their dysfunction to prove I could have done it better .

    So now it’s time to unpack and downsize .

    The first “ relationship” was not a relationship . I don’t think anyone would call it that when a 14 year old is talking to someone 23 . My second one I didn’t know how to have boundaries and be genuine. Now I’m 25 and too old to blame this on going on anyone else . It happened. I don’t have all the answers but now is MY time to decide . I’m in therapy to sort it all out .

    I say all of that to say ... life isn’t black and white. I’ll take the advice that the posted above said for the man. Maybe I knew in the first 2 years . Something to think about

    The only thing I knew about Nipsey was that he was with Lauren.I tried to listen to one of his songs but I could only listen for 10 seconds

    No. I don’t. What he did was create jobs for his formerly incarcerated friends, owned property, taught children about entrepreneurship, and so much more to name.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    They haven't release her name because they never caught her. Believe me she's in hiding. There's a lot of stories out there that are circulating around are fake/false. A lot of them are being planted by the police to make something happen.

    ex: Notice the day of his funeral, allegedly their was a drive by gang shooting, they don't know who did it, don't know the color of the skin of the person(s) who committed the shooting, but it was gang related...the irony, because four black people were shoot, one fatal.

    Nipsey death was allegedly gang related then they had to retract their statement.

    The LAPD knows what their doing, believe that.

    Motive: to keep planting fear in the minds of the people, because the gangs called a truce and started working out a way to end gang violence.

    He started selling hair bundles in the hood, then online, then leased a store etc sell enough hair you can buy anything. Nipsey said all the guys in jail talk about it how it’s better than flipping coke and u do it faster too. A dude named Rob was killed last summer here in Philly on 52nd st (over a chick) he was able to buy salons, nice cars, and a condo on the mainline amoungst other businesses etc off of hair weaves he had vans and delivered, the guy Wallo girlfriend April is making a killing off of hair right now in Baltimore. So I guess it’s possible I don’t wear fake hair but I hear it’s a lucrative business. I just refuse to believe Nipsey was still slining yet when the cops raided several of his businesses they turned up nothing.

  • the guest

    I'm just saying that across race and culture there have always been organized crime with the duality of building up their neighborhoods from Irish, Jewish, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Latino, and African American.

    The concept of gangs in America was alternative governing, policing, income generating for the marginalized and oppressed. When Irish, Italian, Jews first immigrated to US, there were not considered white, they became the social construct of white.

    Because he was never shot. None of them were shot. This is nothing but a poorly scripted production that the hip hop industry is in on. This is another gun control agenda. When they interviewed Nipsey's grandma, she said that Nipsey called his brother and told him he got shot. Yeah, I bet he did, cause he was never shot. That phone call was the signal that the production has begun, now get down here and act out your role. This sick isht is so painfully obvious that it's a psyop.

    He demonized himself. We can’t forget he was until he died a whole gang banger. He admitted to doing drive bys. Everybody has a past. Just because he decided to be different today doesn’t mean he We just erase his past. Just a day after he was killed two brother who have no gang ties and by all accounts were hard working fathers and husbands were gunned down in the street. Nobody has stepped up or turned anybody in. Where’s their citywide memorial. They were the real movement. Raise your kids to be better than the toxic environment.

Nipsey was never the one to sell his soul or he would still be here on top with the rest of the satanic puppets. HE AIN NOTHING LIKE THESE RAP NIGGAS!! He did what Jay, Nas, 50, all these puppet ass rap niggas are afraid to do! He’s sittin with the Most High. Imagine being a male this pressed over a “thug” ? go to bed.

    If thats the case how come nobody loves you ? how many ppl are going to show up at your funeral?

    If you’re gonna call ppl “DUMMIES” please learn to spell properly. Dummy.

    wow...really?? So since this man was doing good for his community..folks automatically think he is money laundering out of his own business??? smdh.....black folks always have to be scrutinized when they are trying to do things that white folks wont do.....example: Improve impoverished neighborhoods.....RIP Nip.

    He represented WAY more than that. You must not have listened to his message on economic growth and having a passion for something and making something of it. His Stem program is south central as well as the donations and upgrades he made to schools in the area. You can choose to focus on the negative but why not acknowledge that he did more for his community than a lot of these so called celebs

    he was still a thug / gang member doing great things for community. Lauren should have had an abortion for real. it is a one hundred per cent chance that she will have another baby by another thug.

    As I see it Nipsey whole life was a Marathon, he has been hustling and grinding in order to win, hence his first mainstream cd is called Victory Lap meaning he accomplished what he set out to do. He won the Marathon now he can celebrate his victory whether in life or in death. Look at the number 6 it was all throughout his life.

  • Sircaput

    I'm not the superstitious guy but the number six played through Nips life, his Marathon clothing store was inaugurated in June the sixth month, early gang affiliation with the rollin 60's, shot 6 times, died at the age of 3+3 and even down to the letters in his name and the picture of him on Wiki. Minister Farrakhan even mentioned the number 6 when he spoke of him during the home going service.
    So I looked up the number and meaning..
    It is considered the perfect number, it is perfectly balanced and harmonious because it is made up of two sets of 3's and is the number of creativity and the spirit it is also a symbol of deep emotions and compassion, it shows that you are a very caring person who give love to others and others give love back to you. All the traits of this soldier. Now that's deep..."but he was a gangster" some people have said. So I ask..."How can you effectively affect a community unless you yourself understand the struggle?" Even Malcom X had a different mindset when he traveled to Mecca. So I'm sure when Ermias traveled to Africa with his father he saw something different and came back with a different mindset. which made him that much more compassionate about his communities and the people around him.
    Eric Holder also affiliated with the same gang as Nipsey the rollin 60's and he shot him because of jealousy and envy.. When they see they can never be you they try to hurt those around you by destroying you..
    It is all so eerie as if this was his destiny and purpose and even in his last and final stages he was doing what he did so many countless times before...helping someone in need.
    See Eric might have murdered the man and the body but he did not destroy the message and the spirit...
    Which was evident on April 11, 2019!
    RIP Ermias Joseph "Nipsey Hu$$le" Asqhedom
