[dropcap size=big]C[/dropcap]renshaw rapper Nipsey Hussle spent his entire adult life building a movement to "buy back" his hood. But the native of the Rolling 60s was gunned down senselessly on Sunday, in a case that has shaken Los Angeles. In this special episode of the L.A. Taco Podcast, we hear from members of his community, and also from future 'Nipsey Hussles' who represent all over Los Angeles: they are artist entrepreneurs, like young Kee Riches ... Plus, a recap of the Latin Food Fest, with Cesar Hernandez.
