Nipsey Hussle's Legacy Is Going Down In U.S. History - Literally

The rap star will be recognized by the United States Congress next week!

(AllHipHop News) Nipsey Hussle's influence on the South Los Angeles community he served will go down in U.S. history.

That is because representative Karen Bass of California made a commitment to guarantee his philanthropic work will formally become part of the Congressional Record.

“I will be heading to the House Floor next week 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,” Rep. Karen Bass promised.

The hip-hop star and activist, real name Ermias Davidson Asghedom, was gunned down outside his Marathon Clothing store in Crenshaw, Los Angeles on Sunday, March 31.

Eric Holder was taken into custody by Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials in Bellflower, California on Tuesday (April 2), hours after Los Angeles Police Department chief Michel Moore urged the 29-year-old to turn himself in during a press conference.

Holder has since been transferred to an LAPD jail, where his bail has been set at just over $7 million.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Meanwhile, a funeral for Nipsey Hussle is slated to take place this Thursday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

That's WAY BEYOND Dope!!!! In the past No elected official Black or White would even consider doing anything like this! It shows how much Hip Hop has changed people & the people who grew up with it! 20 years ago no TV network would've ever green lit a show with Martha Stewart & Snoop Dogg on it together. Look around Hip Hop is in commercial's, TV shows, Movie's, everyday slang! RIP Nipsey!!!!
