As fans, friends, and family mourn the untimely and tragic death of Nipsey Hussle, Nip’s legacy and accomplishments continue to be honored as nothing short of revolutionary. One of Nip’s unfinished projects was a documentary on the controversial herbalist Alfredo Bowman, aka Dr. Sebi. Nick Cannon has announced that he will be “picking up the baton” and seeing the project through.
After Nipsey was shot this past Sunday outside of his Marathon Clothing Shop in Los Angeles, Nick Cannon took to social media to post a clip of Dr. Sebi on Instagram with a caption that stated that there was “unfinished king business.” He also posted another clip with the caption “Can’t kill us all.” He also posted a picture of himself with the late rapper, and included a heartfelt caption:
“And the Lord said, “Job well done my son..” @nipseyhussle King this is how I want to remember you! Laughing! Smiling! I ain’t slept yet, thinking about our conversations!… Where you left off, we gonna carry one! It’s a MARATHON, so I’m picking up the baton! Because they can’t kill us all! Spiritual Warfare is REAL and in full effect. And now your Spirit is protecting your community eternally… So now that you are at Peace don’t Rest… Keep leading… Keep Shining King! Cosmic Love My Brotha!”
Nipsey discussed the documentary on the Breakfast Club back in 2018. He stated:
“I’m working on doing a documentary on the trial in 1985 when Dr. Sebi went to trial against New York because he put in the newspaper that he cured AIDS. He beat the case and he went to federal court the next day and beat that case, on record, and nobody talks about it.”
It is definitely a time to ban together, rather than let senseless violence tear apart the work that Nipsey Hussle did on this earth. His legacy can, and surely must, live on through the completion of the efforts he began.
