Nipsey Hussle Contributions To Be Entered Into U.S. Congressional Record
Nipsey Hussle’s contributions to his community will be recorded in the congressional board.
The Blast reports that Congresswoman Karen Bass who represents the city of Los Angeles will put all of the late rapper’s contributions to L.A into Congress’ permanent record.
She represents California’s 37th District and revealed on Twitter that she will go to the house to “formally enter Nipsey Hussle’s contributions to South Los Angeles into the Congressional Record where it will be a part of United States history forever.”
“Nipsey was a proponent of community development at the real estate and intellectual level,” the congresswoman told ABC News. “In real estate, he was all about empowerment, specifically when it came to the economic opportunity in South LA — being a part of the opportunity by becoming a real estate owner himself and immediately using the stores he opened as opportunities for employment for the community.”
Nipsey was a pillar of the community and was praised by many for the work he did to give back. The day following his murder he was scheduled to meet with LAPD on ways to combat gang violence and close the gap between the police and the public.
Nipsey was reportedly helping his friend get clothes after he had just been released from prison at the Marathon clothing store when he was killed.
