“His music will entertain us but his activism should motivate, inspire, and remind us to elevate ourselves and aspire to exude true excellence.” – Mega
“Death is inevitable but what you live for and how you live defines you more than anything. Death should be the last page to your book of life but not the end of your story. We’ve taken a major loss. Malcolm and Martin advocated for the kinds of change that Nipsey achieved. Opportunities in communities, education, economic revitalization, helping end gang violence, etc. There are many great artists but how many of them are great human beings? Nipsey was a great human being. We usually mourn celebrities for the talent they displayed in their field. Not many achieve notably out of their field. So many people say black excellence but only display black elegance.
He soared so high and could've flew away yet he stayed down to earth inspiring others to strive to reach those once unattainable heights. Every conversation we had was warm and genuine. He was a difference maker who didn't merely bask in status, he offered hope God bless Nipsey— CORMEGA (@iamcormega) April 1, 2019
Nipsey was black excellence. His music will entertain us but his activism should motivate, inspire, and remind us to elevate ourselves and aspire to exude true excellence. Nipsey was planning on launching STEM programs in inner cities across America and spreading awareness on health and well being. The greatest honor his people could do is carry on the pursuit of such excellence and remember as long as we reach the finish line we all win because it’s not a sprint it’s a Marathon.”
