Former US president Barack Obama got many people in their feelings with his tribute to rapper Nipsey Hussle via a letter read at a memorial for the late musician and activist.
Barack thank the rapper for his commitment to seeing growth in his South Central Los Angeles community.
The letter read in part;
“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 flaws, taught him to always keep going,” Obama wrote.
Nipsey was killed at the front of his clothing store last month.
