Ras Shamou Oladiipo: Tribute to Nipsey Hussle

Nipsey Hussle Tribute Recording
The name of your album is very fitting, for anyone to take a Victory Lap, means that through competition and being victorious over the odds stacked against you overcame, and won!!! By the tile alone, this album is the music and message you gave us while taking your last lap for all to see and hear. It's quite prophetic if you think about it.
Ermias Joseph Asghedom (August 15, 1985 – March 31, 2019)


I greet you all in the name of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie!
In the Age of HIM
This assassination has took a toll on my emotional being but raised my spiritual outlook, to be greater. I never met Nip but can only imagine how great of a pain people are feeling who were extremely close to him. It inspires one, the fantasy of one wish that you would like to be granted with the opportunity to bring him back to life, but as reality sets in more, you REAL-EYES just how much a positive force this enlightened being was. At the age of the 33, he set the example of what an entertainer should do for his community. He never left where he was from, knowing that there are haters all around him, feeding off of jealousy and envy. In the midst of danger, he chose activism and his choice is what makes you appreciate him and hold Nipsey Hussle in such a high regard. I spoke on my Podcast that Nipsey drank that Messiah juice, which according to the testimony of Iyesus Kristos, is not a desirable cup to sip from but it most necessary to affect change amongst your equals and community.
I pray for his family and his comrades to heal and to be able to spread his message not only though their zipcode but nationally and globally. Together we stand, divided we fall. I’m going to miss hearing new material from you but in a greater light, there is nothing more left for you to say, you done said it all, and didn’t need multiple albums to do it.
Your message in raising your vibration while respecting where you come from is exemplary, you should of won the Grammy for best Hip Hop but we all know Babylon will choose slackness over righteousness. I remember telling my co-worker about Victory Lap, and looked at it as a masterpiece, a classic. It is the best piece of work, that I haven’t heard in a long time. The name of your album is very fitting, for anyone to take a Victory Lap, means that through competition and being victorious over the odds stacked against you overcame, and won!!! By the tile alone, this album is the music and message you gave us while taking your last lap for all to see and hear. It’s quite prophetic if you think about it.
RIP Nipsey Hussle
We shall see and hear from you again!
One Ras Tafari love


I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
Psalms 82:6 KJV
