RIP to THA GREAT NIPSEY.
The world has shifted, everything is different
The roads I travel, no longer innocent
Looking at the sky like…how could this happen and what is the reason?
Room full of Judas, committing treason
Lost a gem, a real one that spoke truth
Who will reign forever in the hearts of the youth
Aura had a glow around it that you can see in videos
Now, just think of him and you can feel him when the wind blows
I felt Nipsey when the wind blows…right past my shorts…must have been the pinto beans and cabbage, snort snort fart.
He will be missed, but never forgotten and part of him will live forever. Partly due to his music, but also due to something that transcends his art, his presence as man. His ability to connect to people on a deep level and truly inspire them is rare, even for a beloved artists or a local hero. He was special, the impact of his passing here in LA was a testament to that, I seriously don’t think there is another person alive who’s death would have even come close to impacting this city the way losing Nip did. I’m just glad he got he at least got his victory lap and for the rest us; The Marathon Continues. RIP Nipsey the Great.
By the way bro, just wanted to say that verse you wrote is on point and really rang true to how I feel his passing. Great stuff. Only reason I even decided to comment was to acknowledge how dope what you wrote is. Had to pay my respects first though, you know what it is.
Stay up Jersey.
RIP NIPSEY!!! You will be missed!
His middle name is Joseph
