After announcing that he was making a documentary that could bring down the medical industrial complex, Grammy-nominated rapper, Nipsey Hussle was gunned down.
Los Angeles, CA — Nipsey Hussle was a Grammy-nominated rapper who served as an inspiration to other great musicians and athletes. At the time of his death he was working on a documentary following the life of Dr. Sebi—real name—Alfredo Darrington Bowman, and his alleged cures for cancer and AIDS. That documentary may never come to light now, because on March 31, 2019, Hussle was murdered in broad daylight outside of his clothing shop in Los Angeles.
Now, many people are coming forward to allege that this documentary was a factor in Hussle’s murder. According to Heavy, the doc, which followed the 1985 court trial in which Dr. Sebi proved he had a cure for AIDS, allegedly contained evidence that the government assisted in Dr. Sebi’s death.
Now I don’t know much about this Nipsy Hussle situation but it’s not a shocker to me that he got gunned down after he announces that he’ll be doing a documentary on Dr.Sebi’s death. Smh. #pray4nipsyhussle #NipsyHussle

Hussle, who was loved by many in the music and sports world, just a couple of hours before being shot, had tweeted, “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”

TFTP found a post on Facebook that also hinted at the fact that people may be coming after Hussle for his work.
Sadly, this protection did not work.
While Hussle was an amazing musician, in more recent years, he had developed an interest in technology and community development, and he was part of a team of artists and entrepreneurs who developed Destination Crenshaw, an open-air museum devoted to honoring African-American artistic achievement, according to the LA Times.
“In our culture, there’s a narrative that says, ‘Follow the athletes, follow the entertainers,’” he told the Times last year. “And that’s cool, but there should be something that says, ‘Follow Elon Musk, follow [Mark] Zuckerberg.’
“I think that with me being influential as an artist and young and coming from the inner city, it makes sense for me to be one of the people that’s waving that flag,” he said.
Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Ashgedom, had also become a fan of and advocate for the work of Dr. Sebi. Dr. Sebi was a controversial figure who Hussle believed was a threat to the multibillion-dollar medical industry that not only relies on continued sickness but also needs it to profit from it.
Dr. Sebi’s death was highly controversial and many believe that he was taken out for his work in allegedly curing AIDS and cancer.
According to the Root,
On May 28, 2016, Dr. Sebi was arrested at Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport in Honduras for carrying some $37,000 in cash. He was released pending a court hearing, only to be rearrested June 3 by the Ministerio Público, Honduras’ version of the FBI, and charged with money laundering. Dr. Sebi remained in custody until Aug. 6, when he was rushed to a local hospital reportedly suffering from complications of pneumonia. Dr. Sebi died en route. He was 82.
Just last year, Hussle went on the Breakfast Club radio show and talked about his documentary on Dr. Sebi.
