Full-Text: Barack Obama Send Touching Tribute To Nipsey Hussle

Former American President, Barack Obama thanked the rapper who was shot and killed in front of his Los Angeles clothing store, Marathon, on March 31 for his positive contributions to the South Central Los Angeles community.
Barack Obama sent tribute letter to Nipsey Hussle prior to his memorial held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday night.

The letter reads thus;
"I'd never met Nipsey hussle. but i'd heard some of his music through my daughter, and after his passing, I had the chance to learn more about his transformation and his community work".
"While most folks look at the Crenshaw neighborhood where he grew up and see only gangs, bullets, and despair, Nipsey saw potential. He saw hope. He saw a community that, even through its flaw, taught him to always keep going. His choice to invest in that community rather than ignore it-- to build a skills training center and co working space in Crenshaw; to lift up the Eritrean- American community; to set an example for young people to follow-- is a legacy worthy of celebration. I hope his memory inspires more good work in Crenshaw and communities like it." Obama wrote.
