People on social media mourned slain rapper and community activist Nipsey Hussle on Tuesday, the one-year anniversary of his death.
Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was fatally shot on March 31, 2019, outside of Marathon Clothing, the store he founded in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson called Hussle an “icon” and a “West Coast hero” in a statement last year in April.
“Nipsey’s genuine nature allowed him to be a light to everyone he interacted with from family, friends, fans, and his larger community,” the statement read.
On Tuesday, “Hair Love” director Matthew A. Cherry shared a photo of Hussle on Twitter, writing, “Rest in Peace.”
Hussle, whose first studio album “Victory Lap” earned a 2019 Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album, won two posthumous Grammys at this year’s award show in January.
Twitter users continued to honor Hussle’s legacy on Tuesday:
the really good ones, the ones with that inner brilliance, always seem to go abruptly, like a candle being blown out for the final time. #NipseyHussle
