“I know what Pac was trying to do. Pac was like, ‘I know if I tell ya’ll the sh*t I know, ya’ll will call me smart. In our culture, smart is weak. So, I’ma show y’all I’m a rider first. I’ma show ya’ll I’m not afraid to fight, I’m not afraid to shoot. I’m not afraid to be with my n—-s in the worst of the worst. Listen to ‘White Man’z World’ and listen to Makaveli. He was trying to take n—-s there, and they got killed.” – Nipsey Hussle
There are a lot of comparisons between Tupac and Nipsey. They both wanted to unite the gangs and stop the violence and were genuinely wanting the best their communities. Tupac inspired Nipsey, and now Nipsey’s legacy will inspire this generation to carry on the fight.
