RIP Nipsey. I just spent Thursday with him filming a video for a beautiful new song we created with Khaled. We filmed in Inglewood, close to where he grew up. He was so gifted, so proud of his home, so invested in his community. Utterly stunned that he's gone so soon.— John Legend (@johnlegend) April 1, 2019

I’ll remember him this way. Bright, genuine, forward thinking.— Ava DuVernay (@ava) April 1, 2019
I’ll remember the beauty that he saw in our community. And the beauty that he was.
He loved us. He’s left that love with us. And it cannot die.
Rest in Power, King. You mattered. #FarewellNipsey pic.twitter.com/fiSvURrz3U
A lot of people don’t know this but he auditioned for Ronnie. He was so good he got a callback. We talked about the fact that he didn’t drink or smoke. He was so cool and sweet. His lyrics were vulnerable and gritty at the same time. This one hurts. #FarewellNipsey pic.twitter.com/hghjyqemVM— Lena Waithe (@LenaWaithe) April 1, 2019
Watching Nipsey inspired me to invest and own in our communities. He was a solid man who loved his woman, his family and his community. This hurts.— Issa Rae (@IssaRae) April 1, 2019
