DEDICATED TO HUSSLE

According to Morton, the rapper's actions towards his community "really touched" him. The keyboardist wanted to continue Hussle's legacy by sharing the message of investing in the community. Hussle once said:

"I just believe in ownership. I believe in investing in yourself. Your foundation should be strong."

Morton also paid tribute to his father in the opening sequence of the video as he read words that his father told him as a young child - "understand the value of the black dollar."

HUSSLE'S DEATH

The "Double Up" artist passed away in 2019, after falling victim to a shootout in Los Angeles where two people were injured as well.

A group of fans also began a book club in his memory, "Marathon Book Club," which is an avenue for colored men to discuss the books the artist read.

Hussle left a legacy not just through his music but also through his record label, All Money In, which launched with the release of "The Marathon."

HUSSLE'S CAREER

The Grammy-nominated artist was successful in his field and collaborated with some of the greatest men in the industry, including Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, YG, and Young Thug.
