Van Lathan from TMZ on the check in, to talk new updates on the shooting of Nipsey and the Cruz Show discusses how to properly honor the late rapper and his legacy.
“The guys name is Eric Holder…he is the man the police believe shot Nip,” Van explains. He then continues to detail what police believe ultimately lead to the murder. Basically the story is, the suspect was at the Marathon store, he had a conversation with Nipsey who asked him to leave. The suspect then left, and returned with a weapon. The shooting then transpired afterwards.
J Cruz asks, “I don’t really know because the guy we lost was a titan and was a living example of how to move with through and about your community in the right way. So there’s going to have to be some healing done and it might take a long time. But what I do know, is that the answer to this problem, as much as a lot of people don’t wanna hear this, is not more violence. And I hope that people, I know that people are hurt…I know that people are upset but I hope they can hear that message.
Cruz then poses the question: “as a culture, as people who recognize Nipsey Hussle as a champion, how do we remember him? What’s the proper way to hold up his name?” Listeners call in with a variety of great suggestions.
