Reposted from @losangelesconfidential – This morning…. my heart is not heavy, I did not have any dreams last night that kept me from sleeping peacefully nor did I wake feeling as empty as the days previously.
I went to Crenshaw & Slauson yesterday because that’s where my soul led me & there were still hundreds of people gathered to pay their respect. I touched people, hugged them, shared energy & left there with a sense of fulfillment that lasted for the remainder of my day. Now although I don’t know if that is why I woke this am without that weight on my soul I had experienced lately, I appreciate the peace it brought for the time being. I come to all who read my post this am to tell you that we all have purpose in this life. Some are made aware of theirs early on & others are still in search of what it is God has put them here for. I am one of those people…. Not knowing what my true calling is or sure which road I go down in pursuit of my mission.. but what I have realized is no matter what I set out to do, it all starts with me opening my eyes each new day & in that is another gift, another moment, another day to make positive steps in the direction of true & eternal wakening. Now, I’m no preacher & I don’t ever want to come off as one but the things that have been put on my heart to share with you are continuous & will not stop until my heart does. I come to you humbled, a man with many flaws… an imperfect human with pure intentions of sharing my heart, life & wisdom each day in hopes that it drives one of you to understanding your purpose.
If only one out of the millions who read this post are touched & pushed into discovering their purpose earlier than later & are able to push things into motion in their life positively effecting others around them, I have honored my friends mission, life & legacy. & one day when my true purpose is revealed to me, I will have so much to stand on further making it easier to achieve what I was put here to do. People, we are all responsible for everything around us…. ONE thought, ONE LOVE & ONE life at a time. “Hu$$le & Motivate” #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway – #obyorijiblog
from @losangelesconfidential – Today is for all of us. If you just read that 1st sentence, I have your attention.. now let me keep it. 1st be thankful that we’ve all made it to see another day as you must know there are a lot of people who did not wake this morning. If you are someone that lost someone yesterday… May the strength of all of us walk with you today & the days to follow as I know the pain all too well. For those of us who were spared the pain for now, let’s look around our lives & let the people we hold closest know how much they are loved. Every new day that arises I want all of us to do the best we can to just be better humans. There is an energy in positivity that feeds the soul. No one is perfect. Not you, not I or anyone else so allow mistakes to be made, corrected & learned from as we approach the next chapter in life.
I can tell by the comments, direct messages & all the things I’m seeing on & off social media that everyone feels the shift. That means individually we all have a job to do one person at a time until the unity creates drastic change. Everything in life starts with YOU. Instead of looking at problems, negativities etc in a manor you feel defeated immediately.. find the greatness in yourself, close your eyes & imagine the end result as if you already solved it.. then approach it & I promise it’ll be a lot easier conquer. Most times, WE make things harder than they really are. Look at what WE are. All SUPER-HEROES in our on special way.. We walk around everyday, never having to plug ourselves in to charge. We cut ourselves, break bones, get sick & in short time we heal. Look at the power in that.
We take for granted our gift of life because we are comfortable.. So comfortable, that we’ve allowed ourselves to think that the things we are capable of are just NORMAL. We are not normal. WE are GREAT. Stop in this moment & LOOK AROUND you. All you see is what we’ve created out of things God has left here for us to use. Look how far we’ve come in the last 100 years. Start appreciating more & complaining less. My brother lost his life trying to show US just that. #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 & remember “THE HIGHEST HUMAN ACT IS TO INSPIRE” #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway – #obyorijiblog
from @losangelesconfidential – Good morning bro, I love you. You are the 1st thought in my head when I wake. It’s not forced, you’re just there. My dreams are different & my sleep overall has been rough. It’s an unsettled feeling that is sort of unexplainable. I lost my pops, you were there.
You sent flowers to the crib & checked on me every other day until I told you things were getting a lil’ easier. You were always “A better human” than me. I used ask you like “Nip, why you just a better human than me” & you would say “Naw Chuck, you do the same shit as me it’s just harder to notice from the inside.. but I see it”. But really, you were. I mean, I love, I care, I give, I help, I motivate, I…… do the best I can for as many people as possible but your love for people was different.
I got mad at you when you called me about the @meekmill beef trying to squash it & I told you “stop ridin for these niggas, this the West” !!! & you told me “you gone do what you wanna do Chuck & I’m always with you but that’s the bro I’m telling you, I talked to Meek & he ready to let it go”. I didn’t listen, so the beef lingered & then Meek got locked up & I remember feeling really bad about that. Then he got outta jail & in the midst of everything he was going through that day, he called me & said he’d been thinking about me in jail & one of the 1st things he wanted to do when he got out was put our differences aside.
So we did. I called you, told you & I could hear the smile thru the phone before you saying “Told You Chuck…. we can do so much more if we are unified in this shit”. Your heart bro, your heart. Always pure, always solid. Always my brother…. “THE GREAT @NIPSEYHUSSLE” !!!! Feel his energy, I know you do. Look around, the person you see next to you does too ! #TheMarathonContinues 🏁🏁🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway – #obyorijiblog
from @losangelesconfidential – Our last time in the studio puttin’ finishing touches on the record we got together. My nigga threw up 60’s so much, you had to throw yo shit back up just so you wasn’t over-powered by his….. when we grew up, it wasn’t ever kool to kick it with no crips if you was bloodin’ & vice versa.. but when @SnoopDogg embraced me when I came in the game it brought a new understanding of how REAL niggas separated themselves from the confinement of what LA gang bangin was at that time which was far away from its origin of peaceful protective groups formed in the 1960’s.
A few fights then turned into murder (Research Raymond Washington & Sylvester Scott on the internet for the history) & gang bangin would then take a turn down a road in which the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Compton, Watts, Long Beach & other cities are still trying to recover from.
There’s a deeper explanation, education & understanding that I can bring those who are unaware & misinformed about gang life in totality but that’s another day….. circling back around to where I started.. I was just saying how dope it was to be able to break the color lines to which we were loyal to, to show the world that a crip & blood could tour the world together, create a friendship & bond that would serve as an example for the next generation of young African American kids growing up in the same darkness. Snoop showed me & I was happy to return the love when I met nip & show him the same.
I might be rambling on or not making sense to some or all this might touch somebody & make perfect sense to all…. in the end, What I’m really saying is I miss my nigga dearly !!! What a pure soul #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway – #obyorijiblog
I look at my daughter & I think about yours… I look at my sons & I think about yours… I text your sister daily to make sure she’s straight. I talk to @jstone_allmoneyin & @adam_allmoneyin everyday too just so all the pieces you put in place are still locked in. I look around the world & I see the love.
People standing unified from all over. Some expressing their love with art, others with words & I can’t do anything else but smile at it all. Which is why I chose this picture of you to post this morning. @jonathanmannion captured the true you here & if anyone reading really wanted to know Nip’s soul, stare at this for a moment. Let the energy from this photo fuel the rest of your day & live it knowing that we have an angel to help us make it through til tomorrow. God will rise…….. #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway – #obyorijiblog
from @losangelesconfidential – Remember this day like it was yesterday. We went from westside Compton in my hood wit my homies to Crenshaw & Slauson in yo hood… I can hear @pharrell voice in my head still sayin “Y’all like super-heroes for surviving in this shit”…. we laughed, we was young, just happy to be living out our dreams.
People might question my posts of you, so what… get used to it, I’m posting my nigga everyday until my last. Judge my motives, so what… you don’t know me & you wasn’t there the day a young blood rolled down his window & took the mixtape of a young crip & what we know today as the “KING NIPSEY HUSSLE”. 2 kids that shared the same passion for music & their respective cities. 2 young gang members who saw the beauty in the people & neighborhood around us even when the outside world depicted its darkness.
See it as you may…. but when you see me, you will see Nip… FOREVER !!! & deep down in my heart, I know he would’ve pushed the same line for me ! I believe that with everything God has instilled in me. His name, his children & his legacy is to be protected at all costs #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 – #obyorijiblog

from @losangelesconfidential – Rolled down my window 12 years ago on Crenshaw & Slauson as you handed me your demo & said “Chuck, don’t frisbee my shit homie… give a young nigga a ear”. From that day to letting you open up for me on tour & us going around the world together, creating a bond & watching your growth to today……
Murdered my friend in front of his own store on a Sunday at that !!! After just talking to you on the phone just last night about the Dr. Sebi documentary, family, the kids & how we were both bout to f&$k the summer up with this music, the world loses a true king. A man that was truly about everything he spoke & stood up for all that he believed in. I keep seeing your name in these headlines bro, but it seems unreal to me…. like, I just cannot believe you gone !!!! I love you…..
I’m really broken & saddened by the fact they did this to you SMMFH !!!!! I can only imagine what your family is going through right now… This was not how your life on earth was supposed to end !!!!!!!! They don’t even make friends like you no more…… @nipseyhussle 🙏🏾 & in LA, at his own store ?!?!? A store & business he put there for his people ?!?!? Los Angeles, how we let this happen ?!?!?!?!? I’m ashamed of you right now !!!!!
Can’t even live out ya whole life in this city no more… this shit right here is just krazy to me !!!!!!!!!!!! #RestInPeaceNip can’t even fuckin believe it’s actually your name attached to all these REST IN PEACE posts !!!!! SMFH – #obyorijiblog
from @losangelesconfidential – Look at you, fly as fuck bro. You stayed fresh from head to toe. This being the 3rd Sunday since you been gone & everything still feels the same on the inside. Emotions been scattered for weeks, questions I want & need the answers to have just been running around my mind…. this story, that story, this opinion, that opinion & everyone’s difference or shared view in all of this on top of the deep pain will not allow my heart to settle.
I’m sharing my thoughts with the world this am because that has been some what therapeutic for me daily & this morning was a lot different than the ones previous. I woke up 3 different times this morning, all with Nip on my mind. Not fully ready to rise so I dozed back off & there you were in my dream. I wake up again maybe 45 min later & again there you were, my 1st thought…. fall back asleep & have another short dream about you on stage with Emani rapping…
it’s the way you looked at her when she was done, that proud father moment I know all to well from watching my daughter daily. I wake up a 3rd time & again my 1st thought was of you bro. I do not know why this feels so different.. I’ve lost brothers, my father, countless homies & family.. & although death is never easy & I was low each & everytime someone close had passed…. This one will not let me rest.
I don’t know if it’s peace, closure or something you need me to do for you. The obvious is & will be done but it’s not just that…. I’m desperately trying to wrap my head around all of this in hopes to getting closer to what it is…. but in this moment I don’t have the answer.
Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day my heart, emotions & mind will start to slowly reel themselves back in making everything easier to understand. Until then, I love you bro & I love all who read this. Happy Easter & may God be with us all. Enjoy those you love today & fly free. #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway – #obyorijiblog
