‘Hussle & Motivate’ ~ Nipsey Hussle Murals and Memorials Paint the Streets of Los Angeles

9:22 AM PDT on April 8, 2019

[dropcap size=big]N[/dropcap]ipsey Hussle's influence in Los Angeles will continue beyond the tragic ending of his life. That influence can be seen painted on walls all across the streets of Los Angeles, where the Crenshaw native built a legacy of artistry and activism.

This week, Rep. Karen Bass plans on recognizing Nipsey Hussle on the House floor and a public memorial at Staples Center is planned to remember the slain rapper. But Nipsey's biggest influence continues to be on the streets, where this weekend L.A. gangs united in a massive show of peace and unity in honor of his work bridging the community. Many of his former classmates at Hamilton High School held a vigil on Sunday.

The muralists of L.A. have also come out to pay homage.
