A year it has been, a year has passed since the fatal shooting that took the life of late rapper Nipsey Hussle. His music was a testament of the will and power he possessed to inspire his audience. On April 11, 2019, almost two weeks after his passing the city of Los Angeles erupted in support. Hundreds if not thousands of people flooded the streets in front of the Staple Center where his vigil had took place and even more supporters lined the streets to watch and pay their respects as the procession drove by neighborhoods of South and West Los Angeles. 

On the intersection of Slauson and Crenshaw a sea of fans filled the streets waiting for Nipsey's caravan to pass through. It was an out of this world experience to witness the emotions that filled the air that day. While some cried for his passing, others cheered in celebration for the life he lived. It was amazing to see people from all ages, people from all races, people from different neighborhoods, unite and show their support as one big community.
