Nipsey Hussle (Ermias Joseph Asghedom) touched a lot of lives in a positive way. He wanted to make a difference in his community, and communities like it all around the world. As a tribute to Nipsey, I would like to offer support to his children, and all funds from this GoFundMe will be transferred directly into a trust that was created solely for his legacy, his children.
With more than 100 donors, by Friday evening, Bush raised just under $15K in a matter of hours.
Bush’s GoFundMe account was set to be available for donations for a week.
This campaign will be open for 7 days – $100,000 will be an amazing help to the family, so we’ll start there and see what this community can do above and beyond that.
Fast forward to Saturday, Bush was requested by the family of the late rapper to delete the GoFundMe account. He has since deleted it.
On Thursday, the STAPLES Center held a memorial service in honor of the late rapper’s life in Los Angeles.
