Nipsey Hussle

Born: 1985

Nipsey Hussle was an American rapper, activist, and entrepreneur. His fourteen year career led to him becoming one of the biggest influences in West Coast rap, gaining more and more recognition with the release of each of his mixtapes. These led to the release of his critically acclaimed debut album Victory Lap in 2018. His passions extended beyond his music, which he explored with the establishment of his Marathon Clothing store in 2017 and his deduction to community activism. Sadly, his life was tragically cut short at the young age of 33, but his work and impact in the hip hop world and beyond are still felt today. Source
