Somethings happen in life, and you will never forget where you were when the news broke. When Nipsey died, I was in LA for the first time. I just checked into my AirBNB, sat on the bed, scrolled on Twitter & saw the breaking TMZ tweets that Nipsey had been shot in front of The Marathon Store. It wasn't until I began traveling through the city, that I felt just how deeply connected Nipsey was to his Crenshaw community. "Neighborhood Nip" , was not only a rapper, but a community activist & entrepreneur with an amazing mind.
This wallpaper is a dedication to a life tragically cut short, but beautifully lived. From his life, I draw continous inspiration on the importance of investing in our communities and teaching from a place of healing. What he leaves behind is a blueprint on how to have a meaningful impact on your community.
Long Live, Nipsey
The Marathon Continues.
