Barack Obama sent a letter praising Nipsey Hussle for being an asset to his community.

"While most folks look at the Crenshaw neighborhood where he grew up and only see gangs, bullets and despair, he saw potential. He saw hope. He saw a community that even through its flaws fought him to always keep going," the former president stated. "His choice to invest in that community rather than to ignore it, to build a skills training center, a co-working space in Crenshaw, to lift up the Eritrean-American community."

The rapper was gunned down outside of his clothing shop on March 29. The accused shooter is 29-year old Eric Holder.
