  • My mom used to talk about Nipsey Russells intelligence back when I watched The Wiz as a kid. I think he had a high IQ.

  • I saw him as one of the first African Americans on game shows in the 60's. He was rapping before rapping came to being. But at the time we thought he was just doing poetry with a flow we never heard before.

  • No offense but my unfortunate personal experience of Mr. Nipsey Russell was in about 9th or 10th grade. Some fellow students and I recognized Mr Russell @ the 59th St. station in NYC not far from the Fame school also known as the LaGuardia School for the Performing Arts. We were transitioning to another train and on the walk over saw him and were very excited to meet him. We also recognized him from The Wiz. Mainly all black kids. We were energized but not disrespectful. We excitedly approached him letting him know we recognized him and many of us got out pen and paper as school had just let out and asked Mr Russell if we could get an autograph to which he declined saying he didn't do autographs. We were disappointed but accepted his rejection of our requests to memorialize our seeing him for the first time ever and not knowing if it would ever occur again. We got on the same train car as Mr. Nipsey Russell, leaving him in peace, at which point some white people, adults with kids, saw him and gave him praise while approaching him. Immediately he responded with his trademark smile, with an open reception to them, and moments later someone from the white fan base asked him for autographs for them and the white kids. Without hesitation, with all us black kids watching with dropped mouths, he gladly received the white fan base requests of autographs to their white kids and adults alike, to which they surrounded him and he signed every autograph he could before getting off at his designated stop. We didn't dare ask for an autograph, at that point, since he had just turned us black kids down FLAT. We felt a bit humiliated and weren't sure why that was occurring. I came home and told my dad who was also a black historian and he said he wasn't surprised because some black people and entertainers do that from time to time. Appease a white audience while disregarding their cultural home fan base. That left an indelible memory with me. I told that story over the years after meeting Nipsey Russell and evidently still tell it today as a cautionary tale to black performers that if you deny your cultural home fan base, especially when it comes to black children, it will leave a permanent mark in their memory of you, and it will never be forgotten. That story has been aired publicly, told again and again by me and perhaps others from that group of children, now adults, to alert black adult entertainers that the denial and betrayal of those whom ultimately support you fundamentally comes at a cost to ones legacy within the black community. We were all children studying the craft of the arts studying to get to where Mr. Russell had gotten in notoriety and public appreciation and yet he didn't celebrate nor appreciate we, the black children, who were the generation to come behind him in the arts. I always thought it was shameful and disappointing culturally. RIP Mr Russell and Hussle but that story is told so black entertainers don't get so full of themselves they neglect their home fan base whom helped them sustain their fanbase in entertainment. IJS. I'm over it now but it was a moment that should never have happened and he should have been ashamed to behave that way with the creative students of the arts, children of his own black people, as if he was afraid to acknowledge us in front of whites or something along those lines. Lets not do that to the up coming generations peeps. We weren't hood kids being disrespectful, just kids trying to acknowledge and respect a legend in the game and he made us feel like 2nd class citizens of his perceptive world. That is a NO NO!!

    • @sadetwizelve probably because he was the first to do it, and how obvious it was that others were trying to do something similar, on top of his business acumen outside of the music. He was actually doing what other rappers claim they were doing. Outside of outright buying the shopping center where his flagship Marathon store was, he owned several other businesses and was part owner in the reopening of World on Wheels, where tons of celebrities were coming to throw their parties. He also made sure that if he wasn't getting his people businesses of their own that they were at least employed, and everything that he had his hand in generated a quarter billion dollars while he was alive. He could have continued to contribute to the negativity in Los Angeles, but he didn't. And I'm sure he was one of the reasons, outside of gang injunction laws, for the murder rate in LA being its lowest since the (ironically) 60's. But yeah, hold on to the fact that he was a gangbanger.

    • @MISCDesigns that trend didn't last just like any other trend. He aint the first to do so,the same how beyonce isn't the first to drop an album out of nowhere. He laid no blueprints that hadn't existed already. Nobody has changed the rap game since souljah boy even though he's trash. Nobody has done anything new that became a standard or game changer in rap since soulja boy.

    • @Stoopid Steve maaaan that shit lasted a month,what has come from it? The reality is another rapper making 6/7 figures of legal money with a family still holding on to that gang bullshit still being actively involved with those people and died for nothing...How intelligent was he really? What impact?

    • @sadetwizelve he got mainstream rappers to follow the blueprint he had with the Crenshaw mixtape (charging $100 for physical copies). That was the inspiration behind Wu Tang Clan's million dollar album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin", and Eminem making different price tiers for his MMLP2 album. He lowkey made being an independent artist important again in this era.
