The Crenshaw rapper was shot several times in front of his Marathon Clothing line store and pronounced dead at the hospital, despite the life-saving measures taking by first responders at the scene and on the ambulance.

"I think people just hate, not that you're doing something, but the fact that they're doing nothing and you doing something reminds them too much that they're doing nothing."

After hearing the news, T.I took to Instagram to share an image that read:

“Sometimes people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power —not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.”

“Easiest way to create a monster... make him Hate the sight of himself, He’ll then be incapable of loving anyone else,” T.I added on his caption.

REFLECTING ON NIPSEY’S DEATH

On Monday, the rapper and actor talked to TMZ about his feelings on Nipsey’s death —despair and hopelessness first came to his mind— and added,

"Just, I think I'm disheartened, disappointed, and disgusted that the very people that we all work so hard to try to liberate and uplift are the ones that ultimately, in the end, hope to see our demise.”

When asked about his Instagram post, T.I went on to explain that, from his point of view, the lack of education, opportunities, and experiences in the black community, sometimes led those confined to those communities to “operate and exist” on a very low vibration and be “very remedial” in their thinking.

So, when someone else who is part of that community, suddenly starts to operate on a high vibration and has detailed thoughts “—because they're well-read or because they travel more or they've experienced more—” there are two possibilities on how the rest is going to react.

“Some people are going to learn from that person and follow them into whatever greatness come,” says T.I, and the other half, “is going to detest the very existence of that person because their greatness upsets all the things that you’re not doing in your life,” he continued.

The second way of thinking usually leads to violence, and although T.I believes jealousy and envy are strong motivations for those individuals, he also stated the issue runs deeper than just those emotions.

"I think people just hate, not that you're doing something, but the fact that they're doing nothing and you doing something reminds them too much that they're doing nothing,” he concluded.

SUSPECTED MURDERER WAS ARRESTED

Nipsey Hussle’s alleged murderer was arrested on Tuesday and identified as 29-year-old Eric Holder.

According to LAPD, Holder and Nipsey were involved in a verbal altercation minutes before the shooting. Chief Michel Moore said that, at one point, Holder left the scene and came back with a handgun to open fire on the rapper.

Lauren London, Hussle’s longtime girlfriend, took to Instagram on Tuesday with a heartbreaking post to pay tribute to the late Grammy Award-nominated rapper.

“I’m lost without you. We are lost without you babe. I have no words,” the actress wrote.

Nipsey, real name Ermias Davidson Asghedom, is survived by daughter Emani, from a previous relationship, and son Kross, whom he shared with London.
