Face The World
by Nipsey Hussle
Nipsey Hussle (1985 to 2019) was an American 'rap' artist. Nipsey Hussle was born Ermias Joseph Asghedom on August 15th 1985 in Los Angeles, California, USA. Although he regularly attended Hamilton High School in the nearby Castle Heights neighbourhood, he sadly dropped out before graduating. He left home at the age of 14 to join the sub-group of a larger gang mainly based in the local Crenshaw area. He developed his stage name as a play-on-words of the comedian Nipsey Russell's (it actually originated from a nickname given to him by a childhood friend). However, he sometimes stylized it as 'Nipsey Hu$$le' during his gradual emergence from the West Coast 'hip-hop' scene of the mid-2000s. He gradually became known for the issue of numerous mixtapes - these included his "Bullets Ain't Got No Name" series, as well as "The Marathon", "The Marathon Continues" and "Crenshaw" (the latter release was named after his birthplace, and was notable as a tape due to the established 'rap' artist 'Jay-Z' reportedly buying 100 copies just for himself, for whatever reason). After a rather frustrating delay, his debut studio album "Victory Lap" was finally released in February 2018, to critical acclaim and as a commercial success. It was nominated for 'Best Rap Album' at the 61st annual "Grammy" awards in 2019. Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot outside his clothing store in south Los Angeles on March 31st 2019, aged just 33. A 29-year-old man, who had confronted the star earlier in the day, was arrested three days later and charged with his murder.

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace ✚", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
