Hyde Park School Commissions Nipsey Hussle Basketball Court Mural


JEFF NGUYEN IS LIFE REALLY IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH HIS MUSIC OR DID NOT KNOW HIS NAME UNTIL HIS TRAGIC DEATH. LET ME STEP ASIDE AND SHOW YOU WHAT HE MEANS TO THIS COMMUNITY. THERE IS A MURAL ON THE BASKETBALL COURT AND WHEN WE LOOK AROUND, LOOK AT THE FAMILIES AND KIDS THAT ARE HERE. THEY ARE TRULY AT THE HEART OF THE STORY THAT WE ARE COVERING TODAY TAKE A LOOK. ♪ RERE TODAY CHILDREN AT CREEK ACADEMY AND HIGH PARK CUP TO UNVEIL A MEMORIAL BASKETBALL COURT IN HONOR OF NIPSEY HUSSLE. THE RAPPER WHOSE REAL NAME DREW UP IN SOUTH L.A. HE WAS SHOT TO DEATH OUTSIDE OF HISTORIC LAST MONTH AND HE WAS BURIED ON FRIDAY AFTER A LONG PROCESSION TO THE STREETS OF LOS ANGELES THAT INCLUDED HIS OLD SOUTH L.A. NEIGHBORHOOD. AND DESPITE HIS SUCCESS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY NIPSEY STAYED IN HIS COMMUNITY. HE INVESTED WITH BUSINESSES INCLUDING JOB OPPORTUNITIES FOR OTHER AND THAT IS WHY A LOCAL NONPROFIT CHARTER SCHOOL IN THE CRENSHAW NEIGHBORHOOD DID A MURAL IN HIS MEMORY. THE COFOUNDER SAID NIPSEY IS A REMINDER THAT WE HAVE TO HELP KIDS TO DREAM BIG. FOR OUR KIDS TO LOOK AT NIPSEY AND SEE EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS DONE, WHAT HE WAS ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH AND HOW MUCH HE GAVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, IT IS HUGE FOR THEM. BECAUSE HE LOOKS LIKE THEM, HE GREW UP WITH A GROUP AND HE’S THE EPITOME OF EVERYTHING THEY WANT TO BE IN ASPIRE TO BE SOMEDAY. IT INSPIRES ME AND WANTS ME TOO KEEP GOING FOR WHAT NIPSEY DID FOR US. IT MAKES ME KEEP BELIEVING THAT WE CAN MAKE IT THROUGH. REPORTER: THE EFFORT TO BRING THE MURAL TO THE CAMPUS WAS DONE
