I had a chance to hear Nipsey Hussle speak at a BITCON tech event last year in Minneapolis. He was on a panel with other Silicon Valley tycoons. He graciously told his entrepreneur story and how he was changing his community. During the discussion a patron stated he felt he could identify with Nipsey more because they were both from the streets. As opposed to hearing jewels of knowledge from a few Stanford Grads on the panel. Nipsey replied that you should not devalue anyone giving you vital information to grow your business and community. We are all the same despite our looks or backgrounds. Let that be a lesson about society that our past makes us who we are. We control our future and the narrative of our character. I plan to patronize his retail store the next time I am in Los Angeles, CA. Please do the same!
