    First I was like where Trinidad James been (I see got paid and moved out) +Complex but as I am coming to terms in the surreal loss of an inspiration, I realize Nipsey does belong in a different league than just a rapping business man (4:16). I now have the same feelings as I did watching the PRemiere of I Aint Mad Atcha. BigUps

      Nigga what interview did you watch? He said all that shit about what he did over the weekend in the first 2 minutes, and spent over 5 minutes straight on Nipsey. From what I see, he mentioned the charity game over the weekend because it gave him the opportunity to speak on how Nipsey helped his charity game become a success. You reaching on that "inauthentic" shit.

      That's a program. This is what they want us to think. Think for yourself and realize that entire shopping plaza had a total of 13 cameras, but we get the distorted view from across the street. The media is programming us and filling our heads with lies. But you have to think for yourself
