The Launch of the Neighborhood Nip Foundation
It has been 5 months since the devastating loss of rapper, activist, and entrepreneur Ermias Joseph Asghedom, better known as, Nipsey Hussle. A week after the family quietly celebrated The late rapper’s 34th birthday, the family has decided to launch a charitable organization entitled The Neighborhood Nip Foundation in the honor of the late rapper. The foundation aims to continue Hussle’s work in bettering his community of Los Angeles, California.
Before his death, Hussle was very active in his community. A priority of the foundation is to open doors for young upcoming artist looking into music. The family is still determining in what ways they want to contribute to the community that would give the same impact Hussle gave during his life and even after his death. The foundation’s first, and major, contribution came from Atlantic Records in the number of six-figures.
