Finally, after a long break, we get to watch the premiere of the visual video this Friday. The rapper’s estate took to Instagram and made the official announcement by featuring a video that displayed a Mercedes driving in the sunset. From what we are given, we so far understand the video is very much a tribute to Nipsey Hussle.
Many know Nipsey Hussle from his rap career but many don’t know how he was also simply a cornerstone of the Crenshaw community.
One of the project designers, @okidoki shared an additional clip of the visual too and while he did this he also tagged Rodeo Drive as the location. The caption read, “Celebrating the life of an incredible human, the Marathon Mixtape and the first week of #BlackHistoryYear.”
