Nipsey Hussle’s Eritrean American Dream
With more on the life, work, and enduring legacy of our brother Ermias Asghedom: Ethiopian-American and The Atlantic culture writer, Hannah Giorgis speaks with rapper Aminé and Eritrean & Ethiopian vigil organizers across the country on the impact of the life and loss of Nipsey Hussle; highlighting how he connected with his roots and inspired Habesha youth and communities (among the multitude of others) here, back home, and across the world.
"If Hussle’s trips to Eritrea helped the musician connect his American upbringing to his African roots, then his music—and the simple fact of his prominence—did the same for younger habeshas...Through the fact of his life, he also validated the experiences of young habeshas around the country whose trajectories didn’t bear the hallmarks of neat success stories."
