On April 9th 2019 me and my then pregnant wife ventured down to South Los Angeles, 3400 & Slauson to be exact. A place that previously I wouldn’t have thought to go for any reason but this day without question. It was the final stop in Ermias Joseph Asghedom's better known as “Nipsey Hussle” funeral procession.

The route titled “Victory Lap” after his last and most successful studio project to date was a 7 mile drive from the Staples Center to his Marathon titled clothing store with a final destination of Forest Lawn cemetery. It’s was a somber yet embracing moment. A tale of a community feeling something at the exact same time.
