I was very young when Tupac and Biggie were murdered in cold blood but I still shared the pain of millions that mourned the lost of such talent in such a violent manner. This time around, I was of age when The most popular rapper in the game was killed. Nothing could of prepared me for the emotions evoked from within when I bared witness to the barbaric way Nipsey was taken from this world and the rawness of watching the video/images that circulated on social media.

He was and still is one of my favorite rappers and his Victory Lap album was still on constant rotation leading up to his untimely end. He is the Tupac of this generation and when he claimed it on one of his songs I felt it.
