Description: portrait of Nipsey Hussle
“Ermias Asghedom created a blueprint a rose from concrete deeper than rap bigger than color. We are the roses we are the roses.”
lyrics from “Last time that I checked”:
“It was visionary; either I’m genius or you niggas scary
Maybe it’s both, and this balance I deliver daily
For every nigga in these streets tryna feed the babies
The single mamas working hard not to miss a payment
And dirty money get washed on royalty statements
Black owners in this game of powerful racists
Young niggas in the set that’s doing it makeshift
Out the garage is how you end up in charge
It’s how you end up in penthouses, end up in cars
It’s how you start off a curb-server, end up a boss
It’s how you win the whole thing and lift up a cigar
With sweat dripping down your face
‘Cause the mission was hard”
Notes: Memorial for Nipsey Hussle. part of the George Floyd protests. with the Unity Council. Work in progress below.
